Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, Inc. & Arcis Resources Corporation(ARCS) Develop Water-Born Solids Waste Reduction Solution Utilizing Arcis’ Mobile Fluid Recovery Technology

Arcis Resources Corporation (“Arcis”) , announced today that in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, Inc. (“MBUSI”), and Clean Harbors, Inc., Arcis’ Mobile Fluid Recovery (“MFR”) division has successfully completed a trial of its customized solids reduction solution utilizing Arcis’ patented fluid recovery process.

The trial was completed at the Mercedes-Benz facility located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The results successfully demonstrated Mobile Fluid Recovery’s ability to separate solids from the Plant’s water-borne purge stream. “Based on these results, we believe this is the type of solution that is a win-win for all the stakeholders, Mercedes, Clean Harbors, and Arcis. By removing a significant amount of water-borne solids, MBUSI can realize a significant reduction in waste disposal costs while recycling approximately 300,000 gallons of water per year. This is another example of MBUSI’s commitment to environmental leadership and excellence through implementation of continuous improvement projects that further enhance the “Zero Landfill” status and environmental sustainability initiatives already implemented by the facility,” said Trevis Lyon, President of Arcis Resources Corporation.

In addition to working with MBUSI on the water-borne purge project, Mobile Fluid Recovery has also begun processing absorbent and solvent wiper materials for the facility. Using MFR’s patented fluid recovery technology, which removes up to 98% of the solvents, oils, and/or contaminates in the Plant’s absorbents and wipes, MBUSI will be able to reduce costs associated with absorbent and wipes replacement, eliminate the related waste disposal costs, and recycle or reuse the recovered solvents and/or oil.

“Given the mission of Arcis, we value the opportunity to partner with a world class company like Mercedes and its innovative environmental team which is focused on finding “green” solutions that are sustainable,” said Kenneth Flatt, CEO of Arcis Resources Corporation. According to Mr. Flatt, this water-borne solids recovery solution has applications across many industries and expands MFR’s services across a number of industries and markets.
