Bogota

Based on success in Colombia, partnership is expanded to accelerate growth of on-site generation technology in 17 Latin American countries

MIOX Corporation, a leader in safe water disinfection, announced recently the renewal and expansion of its partnership with Colombian-based USA Global Market S.A. to include exclusive distribution of MIOX on-site water disinfection products in the municipal water and wastewater markets in 17 Latin American countries.

We are proud of our partnership with USA Global Market and excited to expand our efforts into other Latin American countries," said Kyle Lee, MIOX chief operating officer. "Their strong relationships and understanding of the market, excellent customer service and resident technical expertise align well with the goals and values at MIOX. We're confident that this expanded partnership will rapidly accelerate the growth of on-site generation in Latin America, allowing customers to move away from hazardous chemicals, reduce operation costs and achieve improved performance in their public treatment systems."

USA Global Market has distributed MIOX products in Colombia since 2009 with growing success. Key installations include a water treatment plant near Medellin, Colombia that provides water for 800,000 residents and a MIOX installation with the Acueducto de Bogotá in the El Dorado plant, which services the city of Bogotá. The Acueducto recently purchased two large-scale RIO Grande units for Planta Wiesner, the largest water treatment plant in Colombia.

USA Global Market is a significant partner for MIOX, not only in large municipal projects but also in small communities, working with MIOX on numerous rural installations that improve access to safe water for underserved populations. Given its technical expertise, experience and regional partnership network, USA Global Market is poised to significantly expand sales of MIOX products in the public water and wastewater treatment sector in Latin America.

Generating sodium hypochlorite or advanced mixed oxidant solution on site eliminates the need to purchase, transport and store hazardous bulk chemicals. MIOX mixed oxidant solution offers all the disinfection power of hypochlorite with additional treatment benefits including reduced or eliminated biofouling, disinfection by-product (DBP) reduction, improved taste and odor, and improved water clarification processes.
