Ministry of Environment Issues Approval for Lystek Centre in Southgate Eco Park

October 9, 2012

CAMBRIDGE, ON, Oct. 9, 2012 /CNW/ – Lystek has been notified by the
Ministry of the Environment (MoE) that all three of its Environmental
Compliance Approvals (ECA’s) for waste, air and storm/surface water
have been approved. This marks the final milestone required for the
company to complete construction of its Organic Material Recovery
Centre (OMRC) located in the Township of Southgate’s Eco Park.

“This is a very rewarding day for the team at Lystek,” commented Rick
Mosher, President. “We had complete confidence these approvals would be
issued. Ministry consent for this project is especially satisfying as
we have invested a great deal of time and effort educating and working
with the local community to ensure the economic and environmental
benefits of this initiative were and are, clearly understood. We are
ecstatic about this opportunity to continue building on our proven
history of success while growing our business and serving new markets
and customers.”

The MoE approvals are confirmation that the Lystek OMRC meets the
province’s stringent environmental regulations and operational
conditions. This is the culmination of a process that lasted for over a
year including in-depth evaluation of the planning, construction,
operations and environmental monitoring for the centre. It also
involved extensive conversations with First Nations communities and the
community-at-large. These discussions will be on-going through the
local municipality and the Public Advisory Committee that Lystek
established in early 2012.

Lystek plans to complete construction of the centre, including
installation and testing of its patented technology, over the next two
months. The company anticipates being ready for operations early in the
New Year. The Lystek process is recognized as one of the most advanced
biosolids processing technologies in the world.

“I want to congratulate Lystek on this important accomplishment,” said
Southgate Mayor Brian Milne. “We welcome Lystek’s presence in the Eco
Park and look forward to seeing their centre fully operational. Lystek
brings tax revenue, jobs and environmental leadership to Southgate. We
hope this will encourage many more progressive green tech companies to
choose to make a home here.”

Lystek International Inc. is an organic materials recovery firm that is
helping companies and municipalities reduce waste and green house gas
emissions through the re-use of organic materials. Lystek technology
transforms biosolids that were traditionally sent to landfills or
incinerated into a nutrient-rich, agricultural fertilizer.
