Robix Enters Into 2nd C-Series Commercial Lease Agreement In Mexico
LETHBRIDGE, Alberta, Feb. 21, 2017 -- Robix Environmental Technologies, Inc. (“Robix” or the “Corporation”) (CSE:RZX) (Frankfurt:R0X) (OTC:ROBXF) is pleased to announce that through its subsidiary Corris Technologies Mexico S.A de C.V ("Corris"), Robix has entered into an agreement to lease the C-160 that has been used as a demonstration unit in Tuxpan, Veracruz, Mexico during the past year. The customer ("Ecios & Salida Construcciones Group" or “Ecios”) has been awarded a remediation contract in the state of Veracruz, and has chosen the C-Series as a key tool in its remediation strategy for this project.
The remediation site, which is near Texistepec, Veracruz has been undergoing various stages of remedial work over the past few years. Since Robix has been in active technology demonstration with both Ecios and other stakeholders, it has been determined that the C-160 is an ideal choice for remediation of this site.
Nathan Hansen, President & CEO of Robix, states: “Our ongoing marketing activity, including demonstration of the C-160 with PEMEX officials, has brought us to the attention of customers such as Ecios and we are very pleased with this new business relationship. It demonstrates that containment, recovery and disposal equipment is a practical and needed solution to today’s remediation needs.” Mr. Hansen added, "I am grateful to our Corris team and our Mexico partners for securing this business relationship. We are looking forward to possible expansion of our C-Series product line and potential water treatment solutions in this remediation project.”
Karla Alva-Jorstad, Managing Director of Corris commented: "The remediation of Texistepec lagoon will have a major ecological impact, as it is one of the largest environmental liabilities on the North American continent. The lagoon contamination is a very significant problem and has been a major concern for local communities for several years. Being involved in a project of this magnitude is milestone Robix/Corris´ history and provides credibility to the Company as an important entity in the environmental protection arena.
