Solutions Inc. (SNV.TSX Venture) today announced that the process definition
phase of testing of the Company’s main application to remediate PCB contaminated
soils has now been completed. Subsequently the Company has formally filed the
required details in its process patent covering the “SONICATION TREATMENT
OF POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYL CONTAMINATED MEDIA”.
Adam Sumel, CEO
of Sonic Environmental commented, “This significant step allows the Company
to forge ahead with the completion of its process engineering and then the construction
for deployment of its technology into the field. This filing follows the allowed
12-month grace period from the date of filing of its provisional patent application
in April 2002”.
Sonic Environmental and its patented technology
The Company offers
proprietary solutions to remediate soils contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls
(PCBs) and other contaminants, a global-scale environmental concern. Sonic’s
generators produce low frequency sonic energy via a patented electromagnetic
drive system attached to a large (2.8 ton) steel bar. The electromagnetic drive
system oscillates the steel bar into its own resonance frequency (a force at
which normal mechanical equipment would self destruct). Chambers are mounted
on both ends of the bar that capture and transfer the vibrational energy to
effect the materials slurried through these chambers. Both physical and chemical
processes are enhanced by this high intensity mixing. The Company currently
holds patents for its low-frequency sonic generator technology in Canada, the
United States and Japan and continues to seek patent protection in additional
jurisdictions. Sonic has the potential to affect other industries in addition
to the field of environmental remediation. The Company is wellfunded, has experienced
management, a strong Technical Advisory Board and a seasoned Board of Directors.
The shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol SNV.
