VANCOUVER – BioteQ Environmental Technologies, a leader in the treatment of contaminated mine water, has secured a contract with a Canadian company to conduct pilot scale testing of its Selen-IX™ technology for selenium removal. Under the terms of the agreement, BioteQ will again deploy its mobile pilot plant that was built in 2013 for the first demonstration campaign with another major mining company.

The pilot testing will demonstrate the capacity of the Selen-IX™ process to meet stringent discharge limits for selenium and provide engineering design data required for evaluating the overall capital and operating costs of a full scale plant that would treat up to 43,000 m3/day of wastewater.

The current value of the contract is $890,000 and work is already under way to begin operating the pilot plant in August and complete the campaign by the end of October 2014.
