Emefcy Announces Memorandum of Understanding with Demonstration Facility in California to Test and Evaluate MABR Technology

Feb. 1

Melbourne, Australia and Caesarea, Israel: Emefcy Group Limited (ASX: EMC) (“Emefcy”) is pleased to announce the planned deployment of the first Emefcy MABR system in California.  This is the result of a memorandum of understanding with the Codiga Resource Recovery Center (CR2C) at Stanford University, to test and evaluate Emefcy’s MABR product. According to CR2C, it is a first-of-its-kind pilot-scale testing and teaching facility that uses a novel core infrastructure and test beds for flexible analysis of mobile treatment systems fed multiple grades of water.

Although specific terms of the testing program remain to be developed, Emefcy’s MABR system is anticipated to operate onsite at CR2C for an initial three-month period during which CR2C will conduct independent evaluations of MABR’s energy efficiency and treated-water quality, including industry-standard metrics. CR2C will publish its findings in venues available to the public and prospective users of the technology.

“Having commissioned Emefcy MABR-based plants in China, the US Virgin Islands and Israel, we are pleased to bring local proof of performance, and pursue local validation, in the strategically important California market,” said Robert Wale, Board member of Emefcy. “I have spoken with several prominent local potential customers who have expressed strong interest to view the demo plant’s progress as a key step towards purchasing Emefcy’s MABR technology.”
