Ecosciences Announces Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection Allowance of Its EcoNow Tablets for Use in Septic Tanks

JERICHO, NY, Jan. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ecosciences, Inc. (OTC PINK: ECEZ) ("Ecosciences" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (“MassDEP”) now allows the use of the Company’s EcoNow tablets as septic system additives in septic tanks.   

In a letter, dated August 24, 2017, MassDEP wrote the Company that after reviewing the “Treatment Tablets” study document from the Massachusetts Alternative Septic System Test Center (MASSTC) dated August 2017, it had determined, in accordance with Massachusetts’ Environmental Code Regulating Septic Tanks (known as Title 5), that the use of Company’s Septic Oxy-Tabs, Waste-Eze or Trap-Eze will not harm the septic system components, including biomat, or adversely affect system function or the environment when used on the schedule recommended by the manufacturer. 

The Treatment Tablets Study of August 2017 by MASSTC states in the paragraph entitled “Discussion,” “There is some indication that the Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) are reduced in a superior manner over this same type of tank as indicated by comparisons made with data taken from this same tank and two other similar tanks during historic studies at the Test Center, particularly in the few weeks following the addition to the tank.” 

Dan Cohen, Ecosciences’ COO, commented, "We believe that the MassDEP’s allowance will present the Company with new opportunities to market and sell its EcoNow tablets throughout the state of Massachusetts.  Since Massachusetts’ Title 5 is applicable to grease traps as well as septic tanks, we will be able to treat septic tanks as well as grease traps in restaurants, schools, hotels, etc.  Since late August, we have been treating grease traps at certain restaurants on Cape Cod while continuing our marketing efforts in the state of Massachusetts.  We are pleased to inform our shareholders of these developments.”  

The Company’s EcoNow tablet proprietary technology provides oxygen, buffers and billions of beneficial bacteria that breakdown grease, fats, oils, waste, and solids to properly treat waste water and grease systems. The product eliminates odors and is non-hazardous, environmentally friendly and biodegradable.
