Sonic Environmental completes safety, operational testing of PCB plant in Delta

VANCOUVER, BC-June 1 /CNW/ - Adam Sumel, President and CEO of Sonic Environmental Solutions has completed all the basic safety and functionality commissioning and testing of its full-scale, mobile PCB Sonoprocess(TM) plant for the treatment of contaminated soils at the Juker Holdings site in Delta, British Columbia. This included full-load commercial operation of the plant in which soil was treated successfully, reducing a 910 ppm (parts per million) concentration of PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) to less than 0.2 ppm. These results are well within the requirements for delisting PCB contaminated soils, Sonic president and CEO Adam Sumel noted. At the company's annual general meeting earlier this month, officials confirmed growing interest in the PCB Sonoprocess, with inquiries coming in from across North America. Sonic is also working on possible joint ventures in Europe and Japan which may be concluded in the current fiscal year. Plans are being made as well for other Sonoprocess(TM) applications using the company's proprietary sonic generator technology. Sonic has already explored the re-carbonation of bed ash from fluidized bed combustion power generation systems and intends to use this as a possible entry into the rapidly growing carbon and climate control sectors. Further potential applications include the products-from-waste, environmental and energy sectors.
