MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - March 7, 2017) - Earth Alive Clean Technologies Inc. (CSE:EAC)(CSE:EAC.CN) ("Earth Alive" or the "Company"), a leading Canadian Clean-Tech company, developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art microbial technology-based products for sustainable agriculture and mining, announced today that it will initiate an application program of the Company's Soil Activator™ at Tata Steel Minerals Canada ("TSMC") Sherfferville mining site.
This strategic soil reclamation project with TSMC aims to demonstrate the ability of Soil Activator™ to facilitate the revegetation of disturbed soils by mining operations.
Michael Warren, V.P of the Ag Division of Earth Alive stated, "There is a growing concern regarding the ecological integrity of disturbed mining lands around the world. Revegetating these soils reduces erosion and re-establishes biodiversity. The application of Earth Alive's Soil Activiator™ will help mining sites restore the soil and help to re-introduce biological activity, nutrient cycling, and conserve soil moisture".
"Using both our EA1™ Dust Control technology, and our Soil Activator™ Fertilizer technology in one ecosystem represents a unique opportunity to expand our relationship with TSMC (see Company press release dated Nov. 23, 2016). This soil reclamation project is perfectly aligned with our Company's mission of improving the economic benefits of using environmentally sustainable practices in global mining and agricultural operations", said David Gilmour, CEO of Earth Alive. He concluded by saying that, "The successful outcome of this program is far reaching and has significant potential economic, environmental and health benefits for both the mining companies, and the communities in which they operate around the world".
