Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2006/10/02 - Biomaxx Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce that the company has signed a formal Agreement with UNA Water GMBH of Sonvilier, Switzerland. A study for the viability of ethanol production from corn and sugar beets in the region of Bihac, Bosnia.
Under the terms of the Agreement, Biomaxx Systems Inc. (Other OTC: BMXSF) will prepare a feasibility study for the viability of ethanol production from corn and sugar beets in the region of Bihac, Bosnia. The cost of a full scale production facility has been estimated at € 50 Million euros capable of producing 10 million litres of ethanol per month. The ethanol produced will be blended with gasoline to be used as a transport fuel in vehicles in Switzerland.
The feasibility study will be conducted by the Biomaxx Systems Consulting team which will be managed by Professor Dr. Naim Kosaric, a native of Bosnia and an internationally recognized expert in the area of biofuels technologies (authoring more than 65 publications relating directly to fuel alcohol).
The feasibility study shall outline the key economic, technological and environmental considerations required to developing an industrial scale operation to produce fuel alcohol from sugar beets and corn biomass. The comprehensive feasibility study for producing fuel alcohols in Bihac, Bosnia will outline the capital cost and operating expenditures, industry analysis in Switzerland and Bosnia, feed stock availability and potential constraints, refining costs and logistics, geographic considerations, market assessment, feedstock (Biomass) characteristics, review of bio-ethanol production processes, environmental considerations, government regulations and incentives, assess and visualize emerging secondary industries and their potential innovation and profitability, with specific interest in the production of alkochemicals for the construction and packaging industries.
Mr. Abdic Enes of UNA Water states, "I am very happy that the project in Bihac will be realized, in conjunction with BioMaxx Systems Inc. and the expertise from their Chief Scientific Advisor, Prof. Dr. Kosaric. We are aiming to be the market leader in East and West Europe for renewable energy solutions. Renewable energy solutions, especially biofuels, are very new to Switzerland and other European countries and therefore we are confident to play a major role in this sector in Europe. The project in Bihac, Bosnia, will strengthen the local economy once again and I'm happy to create new job opportunities for Bosnian citizens."
Vernon Smith, CEO of BioMaxx Systems Inc. comments; “BioMaxx Systems is very excited to be involved in the UNA Water ethanol project in Bosnia. A project of this size represents the first of its kind in Bosnia. This project will greatly benefit the local economy by providing jobs, by injecting money into the region, by making use of enriched and fertile land in the region of Bihac and makes pure economic sense. Our feasibility study will form the blueprint for a successful ethanol production facility in Bihac. UNA Water and BioMaxx Systems are equally committed to the environment and the reduction in the use of fossil fuels.”
