Micromem: Update on the ATRA-171 Tracer Detection Platform
Toronto, Ontario and New York, New York--(Newsfile Corp. - May 29, 2018) - Micromem Technologies, Inc. (CSE: MRM) (OTCQB: MMTIF) ("Micromem") ("the Company") through its wholly owned subsidiary Micromem Applied Sensor Technologies, Inc. (MAST), is pleased to report that with our development partner, a major multi-national energy corporation, that all results from testing on the MAST ATRA-171 tracer detection platform are in and we can report as follows:
Results indicated the simultaneous detection of multiple tracer chemicals in a range of 3 orders of detection measurement and a lower limit approaching 5 parts per trillion. In addition, the Company has received a contract payment of $510,000 US, with an additional payment of $175,000 US now due to the company.
The Company is finalizing the commercial roll out agreement from its development partner in June 2018. The first field installation for the ATRA-171 is now scheduled for August 2018. The ATRA-171 will be installed in an operating production environment during scheduled chemical tracer surveillance activities.
As a result of our product release at the recent SPE Tracer Workshop in Abu Dhabi, UAE, MAST issued product proposals and is formally engaged with many of the workshop attendees in securing product sales. Details including manufacturing, delivery, installation, warranty and parts replacement are all now in place. The Company has continued to receive interest from third parties subsequent to the conference and is actively engaged in responding to those queries as well.
The business value of this product to end users and traditional chemical tracer surveillance companies that have reviewed the ATRA-171 is clear to them, with a growing list of approximately 55 active proposals to begin acquiring the ATRA-171 platform.
