Calgary, Alberta, Canada – March 10, 2009 – Genoil Inc. (TSX.V: GNO) (OTCBB: GNOLF.OB) announced today it has signed a memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) with Tangshan Port, in China, for the implementation of Genoil’s bilge water treatment system.
This is the third major Chinese port to sign an agreement with Genoil to test and implement the utilization of Genoil’s oily water separation technology to treat and clean bilge water. Stringent environmental regulations with increased penalties for untreated bilge water discharged overboard are in place to protect the oceans and coastal waters from illegal dumping of waste oil. Genoil’s Crystal oily water separator meets the port’s goal to minimize the impact of contaminated bilge water on the aquatic ecosystem and complies with existing environmental laws.
Tangshan Port is located southeast of Tangshan City, at Bohai Bay in Hebei province, east of Tianjin and west of Qinhuangdao, the other two ports that signed MOU’s with Genoil this year. These three ports are some of the busiest and largest in China. Once approved, Genoil will furnish an oily water separation production unit that will be manufactured in China by Genoil’s established manufacturing partner. They will provide a unit built according to Genoil’s high quality specifications. Because of its proximity to the port, low manufacturing costs and reduced transportation costs should result.
Genoil’s treatment reduces oil content from bilge water to well below 15 parts per million so it meets strict international standards for discharges into the ocean. The Crystal bilge water separator was developed by Genoil for the commercial marine industry. It has been approved by US Coast Guard, according to the International Maritime Organization standards (Resolution MEPC 107 (49), and the American Bureau of Shipping.
Genoil is an international engineering technology development company based in Alberta, Canada that develops innovative hydrocarbon, oil and water separation, and marine technologies.
