Clean TeQ (CLQ) has announced that its BIOCLENS production facility in Tianjin, China has been successfully commissioned.

The facility will be used to treat 100 cubic metres of wastewater per day at a shrimp farm in Tianjin, and subject to COVID-19 restrictions, this is expected to take place in Q3 2020.

The aim of this is to determine whether BIOCLENS can reduce nitrate concentrate in water to an acceptable level and if successful then Clean TeQ will be able to enter the global market.

The production facility allows bacteria to be broken down and remove more than 90 per cent of harmful nitrates and ammonia from wastewater.

The bacteria is captured in a plastic polymer (a substance containing large and repeating molecules) in the shape of a lens.

The shape and size are important as it allows maximum activity while the environment is protected from potentially harmful conditions.

Once everything for the facility arrived on-site and was installed, trials began in the third quarter of 2019, and a stable output was achieved in the second quarter of 2020.

BIOCLENS will also be fundamental for the proposed Townsville Project where it will help reduce nitrogen in wastewater from the facility.

While Clean TeQ claims that it is the preferred contractor, the award of the final contract is subject to a range of conditions such as pricing and construction schedule.

Even though discussions are ongoing, Clean TeQ has been hired for the initial scope of work, valued at $920,000, and consists of design and acquisition of items for the plant.

Clean TeQ is up 6.9 per cent and shares are trading for 15.5 cents each at 12:24 pm AEST.
