The Ontario Ministry of Education has confirmed, as part of the Green Schools Pilot Initiative (GSPI), that Brac Systems’ Commercial Greywater Recycling Systems will be installed into seven schools from various school boards throughout Ontario.
Planning and site audits will begin immediately so all systems can be installed and operational by September 2010. All systems will be equipped with monitoring devices making it capable for the school board to study and report on the performance and efficiency of the Brac Systems technology.
“We are very excited about this project as it gives us the ideal forum to demonstrate the effectiveness of the our systems to the board for consideration in all new schools that will be built in the future. The Board of Education will also be a great reference customer for future business in Ontario,” says Chris Thompson.
The Green Schools Pilot Initiative is a new program developed and funded by the Ministry of Research and Innovation in conjunction with the Ministry of Education to provide “clean-tech” companies with an opportunity to demonstrate the viability of their technology with a well-known reference customer: Ontario’s schools. The $20 million ($2M allocated for greywater technology) fully funded initiative seeks to identify, demonstrate and test, innovative green products and technologies that currently have limited exposure in the Ontario school system.
