Micromem Releases Commercialized Next Generation Tracer Detection Product

Toronto, Ontario and New York, New York–(Newsfile Corp. – January 23, 2018) – Micromem Technologies Inc. (CSE: MRM) (OTCQB: MMTIF) (“Micromem”) (“the Company”) through its wholly owned subsidiary Micromem Applied Sensor Technologies Inc. (MAST), is pleased to announce the commercial release of the AROMA Tracer Detection product (“AROMA”). This innovative, first in the world, product is the result of a four-year joint development agreement with a major oil and gas energy production company. Please refer to the attached product data sheet for a description of the product.

MAST has a worldwide exclusive license agreement for the oil and gas tracer detection field of use of the underlying Entanglement Technologies Inc. (“Entanglement”) patented technology. Entanglement has integrated their core technology into the MAST product that combines next generation broadly-tunable cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS) with unique surface-interaction dependent separation techniques to apply the extraordinary sensitivity of CRDS to entirely new classes of complex chemical analysis.

This product will allow companies performing tracer detection studies in producing oil fields to install the AROMA platform either directly on the oil well production piping, allowing for continuous tracer sampling, or alternatively, in a project trailer at the producing site, where one AROMA platform could support multiple wells participating in the tracer test. In either configuration, the MAST product will eliminate the dangers to employees of performing manual sampling. In addition, it will reduce errors in sample quality and will eliminate the associated delays and costs of shipping manually collected samples from around the world back to corporate labs for chemical analysis. As announced on December 14th, 2017 in addition to the oil and gas applications the company has been approached to demonstrate this device to a company that is looking to detect alcohol levels in food shipments as a quality control measure prior to processing.

Steven Van Fleet, President of MAST, who managed this four-year product development program stated, “Partitioning alcohols are superior to traditional FBA’s as tracers, particularly in the added matrix knowledge their dual peak arrival times provide. Besides our product bringing never before capability to the field, the sensing platform level of detection of better than 1 part per billion is 1000 times more accurate than current lab analytical devices in use. This combination along with the competitive pricing of our product makes for a compelling business value proposition to our clients. The product is ready for the market and its performance has exceeded the initial expectation that we set in place four years ago.”
