BIOREM Selected To Run Pilot For City Of Toronto Odour Control System

GUELPH, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - July 14, 2005) - BIOREM Technologies Inc., the wholly owned subsidiary of BIOREM Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BRM), announces that it has received a purchase order from the City of Toronto to undertake a one year pilot odor control study at Ashbridges Bay, Canada's Largest Wastewater treatment plant located at the foot of Leslie Street in Toronto. The results of the $100,000 pilot, may be used to develop engineering performance data required to design a full scale BIOFILTAIR™ odour control system.

The study, project managed by Earth Tech Consultants, is part of a $15 million contract that they were awarded earlier this year.

When completed, the proposed full-scale odour control system will be the largest of it's kind at a municipal works in North America, treating an estimated 770,000 cubic metres (450,000 cubic feet per minute). The project is part of a $130 million capital improvements program.

"Depending on the scope of supply, this 2007 installation is estimated at somewhere between $8 to $10 million," said Brian Herner, President and CEO of BIOREM. "It would set a new record in size of installation for a municipal biofilter and is consistent with the growth we are seeing in this market." BIOREM previously installed a $1 million biofilter system at this same plant in 2001 for successful control of odour emissions from a new sludge loadout facility. Other large installations completed by BIOREM include two 425,000 cu meters per hour (250,000 cubic feet per minute) systems at meat by-product rendering plants.

BIOREM through its wholly owned subsidiary, BIOREM Technologies Inc., manufactures BIOSORBENS™ a high-efficiency permanent biofilter media and is a leading supplier of biofilters for air pollution control in municipal and industrial applications including the BASYS™ modular and BIOFILTAIR™ field erected systems. With over 400 installed systems and over a decade of experience, the Corporation's groundbreaking biofilters are the technology of choice for wastewater treatment plants and pumping stations across North America.
