LIQTECH INTERNATIONAL, INC. RECEIVES PILOT ORDER FOR A REVOLUTIONARY IN-WELL SITUATED GROUND WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM
BALLERUP, DENMARK – March 2, 2015 – LiqTech International, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LIQT) ("LiqTech") is pleased to announce that it has received the first pilot order for a newly developed in-well situated ground water treatment system from the leading pump producer, Grundfos. The pilot unit will be installed at Taarnby Forsyning in Denmark.
Mr. Sune Mathiesen, LiqTech CEO, remarked, "We are very pleased to enter into this cooperation with Grundfos. We have spent the past 5-6 months developing this system that eliminates some of the common problems treating ground water. The system is very compact (approx.10ft x 5ft x 4ft) and can be placed on the ground in connection with the well itself. This eliminates the need for a separate building housing the sand filters normally used in this application. Our system efficiently removes iron and arsenic, but it will also remove bacteria and harmful microorganisms."
"This system is what our unique membrane technology is all about. It solves problems with iron, microorganisms, arsenic and bacteria in ground water, and due to its small footprint, it also allows us to build an in-well situated system saving construction costs."
"The pilot system will be delivered in April 2015 and after evaluation Grundfos plans to market the system together with their high-end ground water pumps. We are proud and honored to enter into this relationship." Mr. Mathiesen concluded.
