Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian Zeolite Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: CNZ) (OTCQB: CNZCF) (FSE: ZEON), an international marketer and distributor of zeolite products, has been fielding numerous inquiries expressing interest in the potential of ecoTraction™ as an alternative or outright replacement to road salt and ice-melter products in the constant battle against the elements of winter.
Recent press coverage of negative impacts of chlorides (road salt and alternative chemical ice-melters) on infrastructure, plants, pets, people and our environment has continued to raise awareness of the issue; and of alternative approaches to achieving safe, secure and slip-free sidewalks, parking lots and roads. The Company recommends the following recent media reports for information about the issue: How Canada’s addiction to road salt is ruining everything: National Post Tuesday, January 22, 2018 (http://nationalpost.com/news/canada/how-canadas-addiction-to-road-salt-is-ruining-everything) and CBC’s The Current from Friday, January 26, 2018: (http://www.cbc.ca/radio/thecurrent/the-current-for-january-26-2018-1.4504277/beet-juice-and-cheese-brine-what-cities-are-spreading-on-streets-to-replace-corrosive-road-salt-1.4504293) featuring Stephen Coates, President of the Company’s subsidiary, Earth Innovations Inc., the makers of ecoTraction™.
“Canadian Zeolite is committed to introducing the ecoTraction™ advantage to municipalities, property managers and private contractors responsible for keeping our cities safe for drivers and pedestrians throughout the winter season”, said Ray Paquette, CEO of Canadian Zeolite Corp. “Using ecoTraction™ either instead of, or in conjunction with, ice-melters is a responsible and environmentally beneficial approach to providing a safe traction surface in the face of ice, freezing rain and hard-packed snow.”
