Vancouver, BC (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - SHARC International Systems Inc. (CSE: SHRC) (FSE: IWIA) (OTCQB: INTWF) ("SHARC Energy" or the “Company”), whose technology extracts wasted energy from waste water, will be represented in the United States by LONG Building Technologies, Inc. (“LONG”), one of the United States most progressive integrators of sustainable technology in buildings.
Established in 1965, LONG has entered into a Manufacturer’s Representative Agreement (“MRA”) with SHARC Energy to become a representative (“Representative”) of SHARC™ waste water energy innovations in the US. It will be presenting the SHARC waste water energy systems PIRANHA™, PIRANHA HC and the SHARC system in the U.S. states of Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming.
“We are delighted to have LONG, and their environmentally conscious team, representing SHARC Energy’s carbon-reduction systems in the United States,” said Lynn Mueller, CEO and Chair of SHARC Energy. “Our proven technology repurposes the heat in waste water into energy we can reuse, reducing our need for carbon-intensive energy sources.”
LONG was established in 1965 and has grown to become one of the largest integrators of technology innovations for buildings in the Western U.S. It provides products and services in building automation, HVAC equipment, mechanical service, security solutions and parts. LONG has a large network across eight states including Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming.
LONG’s historical success in promoting advanced building technologies in the U.S. is vital to SHARC Energy’s global commercialization strategy to reduce global carbon emissions by re-capturing and utilizing energy in waste water from our daily lives. LONG has market reach into states that are emerging as leaders in setting aggressive clean energy and climate-action goals, which SHARC Energy waste water innovations can help achieve.
Colorado, where LONG operates, is overhauling its energy strategy. Governor Jared Polis campaigned on a promise to target 100 percent clean electricity generation by 2040 and identifies requiring significant reductions in emissions associated with heating and cooling buildings. SHARC Energy believes its waste water energy recovery systems, which can replace carbon-intensive energy sources for buildings, can be a part of that public interest objective.
In addition, House Bill 19-1261 sets Colorado statewide goals to reduce 2025 greenhouse gas emissions by at least 26%, 2030 greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% and 2050 greenhouse gas emissions by at least 90% of the levels of greenhouse gas emissions that existed in 2005.
These initiatives in Colorado provide SHARC Energy with a significant opportunity to create market traction around waste water heat recovery, augmenting traditional clean, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.
