HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2012) - Planet Resource Recovery, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PRRY) is pleased to report that the Company has received the preliminary results of laboratory testing on a new, enhanced AquaLuxus blend under development for elimination of heavy metals from water. The initial lab reports show a significant reduction of arsenic concentrations in arsenic contaminated water samples.
Arsenic is a natural occurring element of the earth's crust that is toxic to humans. Arsenic enters water supplies either from natural deposits in the earth or from industrial and agricultural pollution. Arsenic has been linked to cancer of the bladder, lungs, skin, kidney, nasal passages, liver and prostrate. In an effort to protect consumers, the EPA set the arsenic standard for drinking water at 10 ppb (parts per billion) for public water systems.
Field testing of AquaLuxus WC (Well Clean) demonstrated a rapid reduction of dissolved arsenic levels at low concentrations. This observation led to the investigation into higher concentration levels of arsenic and the affects of AquaLuxus. Planet's technical staff developed new, enhanced blends to specifically target higher arsenic and heavy metal concentrations.
Arsenic laden samples were treated using the new formulation AquaLuxus resulted in significant reduction in arsenic levels. Sample 1) originated from a Municipal Water system that contained 66.7 ppb Arsenic. After treatment, Arsenic levels were quickly dropped to 5 ppb, a 92.5% reduction. Sample 2) originated from a farm where the irrigation water contained 250 ppb Arsenic. After treatment, Arsenic levels were quickly to 10 ppb, a 96.0% reduction.
