NSF International is The Public Health and Safety Company™, providing public health and safety risk management solutions to companies, governments, and consumers around the world. NSF/ANSI 60: Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects is the internationally recognized health effects standard for chemicals that are used to treat drinking water.
In 2011, Company Management targeted 2013 as the year to commence the commercialization of the AquaLuxus family of products. After successful field tests using AquaLuxus WC in irrigation and domestic groundwater wells, it became imperative to obtain NSF/ANSI 60 certification to confirm the products' safety and broaden the utilization and acceptance of the product in the water industry. During the field tests, the Company, its distributors and manufacturer reps encountered numerous groundwater well contractors and municipalities that were very interested in utilizing AquaLuxus WC but were unable to proceed, due to the lack of drinking water safety certification. The NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certification opens the doors and greatly expands the potential markets to municipal water systems, as well as irrigation and domestic groundwater wells worldwide.
Additionally, the Company submitted its oil field chemical family, the PetroLuxus™ product group, for the identical ANSI testing. PetroLuxus™ WC passed the toxicology testing and was certified by NSF as meeting the NSF/ANSI Standard 60 criteria for chemicals used to treat drinking water. PetroLuxus™ products may assist operators in the Oil & Gas industry reduce their reliance on current chemicals used for the recovery of hydrocarbons having the potential to contaminate drinking water. A new PetroLuxus™ product is currently being evaluated as replacement/enhancement component of fracking fluids. The Company believes the ANSI certification of PetroLuxus™ WC may provide attractive alternatives for the safe and efficient production and processing of hydrocarbons by the Oil & Gas industry.
