PETACH TIKVA, Israel, August 30, 2011 -

Israeli company Lextran, inovator in the cleantech technology field of removing pollutants and toxics from flue gas emissions; signed a second contract in China during a period of several months, for the treatment of gas emission of a coal-fired flue gases of a steel factory in China.

As an economy based mostly on the production of energy from coal (about 70%), its various industries are obligated to install pollutant removal and emission control systems. The secret for wide implementation is efficiency and affordability in a market which is very sensative to construction and operational costs.

The prevailing technologies, which capture only individual pollutant group at a time, are therefore expensive, and combersome for the Chinese industrial-residential topography. Lextran invented and manufactures a chemical catalyst which absorbs all three pollutant groups simultanously (sulfur and nitrogen oxides as well as mercury), thus allowing both significant cost reduction in construction and running csts, as well as compact operation. Both are key to the Chinese market place.

Dr Yuval Davidor, Executive Director: “our target is the thousands of small boilers in China’s metropolitans and worldwide, as well as retrofitting old scrubbers that sub-perform. With a unique capability to retrofit, addressing small boilers in cities, SWFG, new De-Hg, and low-cost high-efficiency for new builds, we believe we have a gift to the world.”

Protecting the environment and saving costs - 40% of the construction costs and Operating cost

Mr Haim Sternfine, General Manager: “The beauty of the Lextran technology is that it calls for a negligible change in market habits, yet it offers tramendous cost saving and significantly improved efficiency with a higher sustainability since the byproducts are fertilizers. We speak of replacing the prevailing reagents with our novel catalyst, thus benefit from the improved efficiency and low cost. We proved the process is reliable, so we are left with the need to demonstrate that the process is scalable. The current contract achieves exactly this aim.”

Simultanously with the activities in China, Lextran continues to advance cooperation  in other key markets such as South Africa, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, and most recently North America, with the vision of providing engineering companies licenses to its technology.
