AbTech Announces Stormwater Solutions Roll-Out with Waste Management in California, Canada, and U.S. Southeast

Nov 25, 2011

AbTech Holdings, Inc. ("AbTech") (OTCBB: ABHD) announced that the company and its distributor, Waste Management, Inc., have begun the roll-out of AbTech's full-service stormwater solutions offerings in California, Canada, and parts of the U.S. Southeast. The companies had previously announced the initial service offering in the Los Angeles area.

"We are eager to continue the expansion of our stormwater offerings into new territories following strong initial feedback in our initial market" said AbTech Founder and CEO Glenn R. Rink. "The combination of AbTech's expertise and proprietary technologies combined with Waste Management is proving to be a strong value proposition."
AbTech previously announced that Waste Management would serve as the exclusive distributor of its flagship SmartSponge® product line to municipalities located in North America. AbTech's proprietary technologies remove hydrocarbons, sediment and other contaminants from lakes, streams, stormwater pipes, oceans or any body of water, moving or standing, and the company now offers the ground-breaking new antimicrobial technology called Smart Sponge ® Plus. This technology reduces coliform bacteria found in stormwater, industrial wastewater, and municipal wastewater (EPA Registration #86256-1),
As part of the roll-out, AbTech and Waste Management are deploying teams of stormwater experts to cities in California, Canada, and states in Southeastern United States, and plan to continue this expansion in the coming months to the mid-Atlantic, Northeastern and Great Lakes regions.
"Municipal customers are very enthusiastic about our total solutions offering," said Bjornulf White, Executive Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Business Development at AbTech. "The strength and reach of Waste Management, the trust it has built with municipalities, and AbTech's more than 15 years of experience in stormwater engineering and technologies allows cities to offload their stormwater problems to us," said White. "Municipalities seek cost-effectiveness and compliance with water quality regulations, two things our team can deliver."
