Global Ecology Corporation Announces New Water Treatment Venture In South Africa
New Subsidiary, GEC Africa, to Market GEC’s MobilePureWater System
Montclair, NJ – December 15, 2010 -- Global Ecology Corporation announced today that it has signed a joint venture agreement with Isongo Water (Pty.) Ltd. of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa to establish a subsidiary for the sale of the company’s Mobile PureWater System (“MPWS”) and its licensed mineral solution IMS 1000?.
GEC and Isongo will form a jointly owned subsidiary of GEC to be known as GEC Africa to pursue the sale of the water purification systems and the mineral solution throughout South Africa and neighboring countries. As part of the arrangement, Isongo will be granted an exclusive license for the sole benefit of GEC Africa for the sale and distribution of the MPWS units. The intention of the parties is for GEC Africa to have its own manufacturing facility for the water systems and IMS1000.
Global Ecology CEO Peter Ubaldi said, “This is a major opportunity to help the people of Africa with insufficient water resources gain access to fresh water on a daily basis. Our MPWS unit provides an efficient cost effective solution to bring fresh water to thousands of villages through Africa, where access to enough potable water is a major health issue.”
“In October we demonstrated our Mobile Water Purification System for representatives from the United Nations, state and local government officials and humanitarian organizations. They were able to see the ability of the cart to convert contaminated water to pure clean drinking water. The upgraded technology in our system not only allows for the immediate consumption of the water, but also treats the water with our licensed IMS 1000? solution so that water can be safely transported and stored even in tropical conditions. This is an important feature for developing countries with limited water transportation and storage infrastructure.”
