ESCO Contracts with Sofame to Design Flue Gas Heat Recovery System for Pharmaceutical Manufacturer
MONTREAL, December 18, 2013 - Sofame Technologies Inc. (TSX-V:SDW) (OTC.PK:SFMGF), a leading Canadian manufacturer of environmentally efficient industrial water heaters and cost effective heat recovery systems for traditional boilers, has received an order from a major American energy services company to design a flue gas heat recovery system for a multinational pharmaceutical manufacturer.  The design-build project is expected to reduce energy and water consumption through the installation of state-of-the-art technology at the facility's cogen plant. The design phase of the project has started, and once the build phase of the project is completed in 2014, the flue gas heat recovery system is expected to save more than half a million dollars per year in fuel costs, reduce CO2 emission by over 4,000 tons annually, and produce over 4 million gallons of water through condensation.

More Percofrac Water Heaters in Production

MONTREAL, December 18, 2013 - Sofame Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: SDW) (OTC.PK: SFMGF), a leading manufacturer of environmentally efficient industrial water heaters and cost effective heat recovery systems for traditional boilers, is preparing to ship more of its 10 million BTU per hour Percofrac units for shale gas hydraulic fracturing applications.  Using warm water for fracking increases the distance the fracking gel can travel while laden with the sand which keeps the fractures open.  The Canadian frackers have been using warm water to significantly increase gas production, while the practice is only now being tested on a few gas wells in the USA.  


The Percofrac is a 99% efficient water heater producing water at 120 degrees F to maximum 140 degrees F. It will compete with the current systems of frackers burning oil or using propane. Our custom-designed water heater will deliver cost savings and give flexibility; Sofame have three models designed, with two in production, and the range includes 10 million BTU/h, 20 million BTU/h, and 30 million BTU/h units. Sofame received orders for eight systems in the summer of 2013, and there is strong interest in the new product from the three main gas fields in the United States, from China, Great Britain, and other locations where fracking is or will be carried out. 


According to the Globe and Mail, three years ago, unconventional gas made up 15 per cent of worldwide production, according to the International Energy Agency. By 2040, unconventional gas production will satisfy 80 per cent of North American demand, ExxonMobil Corp. estimates. After the United States and Russia, Canada is the world's third-largest natural gas producer (of all types).


According to John Gocek, Sofame's President & CEO, "Revenues from frac heaters which are a unitary product, are going to play an important part in Sofame's growth in 2014.  Sofame believes the combination of hot water and electricity supplied from a mobile platform has other applications such as for disaster relief and public security in times of crisis."

The Gazette July 29, 2013
Natural gas used for heating is much cleaner than coal, but it still produces greenhouse gas. To help reduce natural gas consumption, Montreal-based company Sofame Technologies has developed a clean technology to recuperate residual heat from steam boilers. Ecole Polytechnique is one of places that has invested in this technology to improve its energy efficiency. In the second of eight videos that will highlight green technology in Quebec, video blogger Véronique Paquette-Corriveau of Ecotech Quebec discovered how the engineering school is able to heat two buildings for the price of one with Sofame's made-in-Québec innovation.

Journal Metro, Montrel, 28 juillet 2013
Le gaz naturel destiné au chauffage est bien moins polluant que le charbon, mais il émet tout de même du CO2! Pour permettre de réduire la con­sommation de gaz naturel, l'entreprise québécoise Sofame Technologies a développé une technologie propre permettant de récupérer la chaleur qui s'échappe normalement d'une chaudière à vapeur. Comme plusieurs aéroports, hôpitaux et usines, Polytechnique Montreal a investi dans cette technologie pour améliorer son rendement énergétique. La vidéoblogueuse Véronique Paquette-Corriveau de a découvert comment cette école d'ingénierie chauffe deux bâtiments pour le prix d'un grâce à cette innovation québécoise.
So Energy Efficient. Sofame.
