GRI ETI formalizes 2015 plans for patented PolyZolv technology to be deployed in expanding Chinese nuclear program

December, 2014

The first PolyZolv processor is scheduled to ship to the P.R. of China in late January 2015. ETI is under contract to provide the first of several PolyZolv processing systems to the Chinese Nuclear Power industry. The Chinese government is currently constructing many new nuclear power generating facilities to help solve the country's energy shortage as well as reduce air pollution. Several years ago, Chinese experts visited the USA to benchmark waste minimization technology applications in the more mature USA nuclear power industry. As a result, the unique and highly successful PVA-based product and related processing technology was chosen as one of the key low level nuclear waste reduction technologies to be deployed in the expanding Chinese nuclear program. The first system is scheduled to begin operation in China during the fall of 2015.
