TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 6, 2017) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES.
CHAR Technologies Ltd. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:YES) is pleased to announce that it has received an initial shipment of SulfaCHAR produced under contract. The shipment consists of 18 metric tonnes of SulfaCHAR, produced by a contractor, under the process conditions prescribed by the Corporation. The SulfaCHAR was tested by a third-party laboratory to ensure product quality and efficacy. The initial scope is for the contractor to produce up to 20 tonnes per month of SulfaCHAR. The contract production will supply customers until the Corporation's SulfaCHAR production unit is operating later this year, and will then supplement the plant production to support further growth.
"Bringing a contract producer onboard will allow CHAR to both diversify and increase production," said CEO Andrew White. "This production diversity and flexibility will ultimately allow CHAR to bring more SulfaCHAR to market faster."
The Corporation is in the business of producing a proprietary activated charcoal like material ("SulfaCHAR"), which can be used to remove hydrogen sulfide from various gas streams (focusing on methane-rich and odorous air). The SulfaCHAR, once used for the gas cleaning application, has further use as a sulfur-enriched biochar for agricultural purposes (saleable soil amendment product).
