In the spirit of improving the climate of U.S.-Chinese negotiations over admitting China to the World Trade Organization, China recently signed a multi-faceted agreement giving the green light to an American company to begin China's first government supported cleanup of heavy metals heavy metals,
n.pl metallic compounds, such as aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and nickel. Exposure to these metals has been linked to immune, kidney, and neurotic disorders. contamination, one of the country's worst environmental problems.
The first phase of a massive project to begin remediation of a huge chromium slag mountain at the Tong Sheng sheng

In Chinese belief, a mortal who attains extraordinary or supernatural powers by self-cultivation and serves as a model for others. Confucius used the term to refer to exemplary rulers of the past. Chemical Plant, owned by BOHAI Chemical Group Co., in the city of Tianjin, China's third largest, will begin next year. The agreement calls for the remediation to be accomplished by use of a process utilizing MBS See Mb/sec.
MBS - mobile broadband services (R) (Molecular Bonding System), a patented heavy metals remediation system developed by Solucorp Industries, Ltd., (OTC OTC
See over-the-counter market (OTC). : SLUP) West Nyack, New York.
The municipal government of Tianjin advanced a $1 million loan to BOHAI for the start-up of Phase I of the project. BOHAI Chemical is responsible for funding the entire project.
In addition to remediation of the chromium slag mountain -- estimated officially at 170,000 tons, but may be as large as 400,000 to 800,000 tons -- two "in-line" systems will be installed by Solucorp at the BOHAI Chemical plant production facility, to eliminate future contamination at its source. The in-line systems, installed as part of the production of sodium chromate chromate /chro·mate/ (kro´mat) any salt of chromic acid.

3. Peter Mantia, President of Solucorp Industries, who was present in China when the agreement was signed, the mayor of Tianjin strongly supports utilizing Solucorp's MBS technology, which has the status of a U.S. EPA EPA eicosapentaenoic acid.
n.pr See acid, eicosapentaenoic.
n. Superfund Innovative Technology, to permanently solve the heavy metals contamination problem that has plagued the city of Tianjin and its 9.2 million people for more than 40 years.
The agreement, which made national news in China, was reported as the first government-sponsored heavy metals cleanup. Chinese officials referred to the agreement in the context of the American agreement to extend normal trade relations with China as set forth in the July 27, 1999 statement by President Clinton in which the environment of China was an issue.
This agreement with China was signed jointly by Solucorp and Smart International, Solucorp's representative in China. Solucorp and Smart International entered into a license agreement in 1997 whereby Smart has the exclusive rights to Solucorp's MBS process in China. Smart International is the primary producer of the chemicals required for the MBS process.
The Tianjin project when completed, based on the lower estimate of 400,000 tons of slag, will require approximately 32,000 tons of MBS chemicals to be produced by Smart. Based on this estimation, Phase I remediation operations alone will require 13,600 tons of MBS material. Solucorp has stockpiled about 7,000 tons at Smart's facilities and has prepaid an additional 7,000 tons of chemicals over the past two years. The BOHAI agreement requires Solucorp to ship existing inventory of MBS to a Solucorp site location at the BOHAI facility. BOHAI will pay Solucorp for the inventory as it is used in operations, which are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2000.
Solucorp is unable to determine the full value of this agreement, but management stresses the importance of this agreement as the successful culmination of two years of efforts by Solucorp and Smart to convince the Chinese government Ever since Republic of China founded in January 1st, 1912, China has had several regional and national governments.

The importance of the agreement to the government of China is attested to by the high ranking officials who attended the signing, including the secretary of the party manager representing the government of China; the vice mayor of Tianjin; the department chief of the Tianjin municipal government; the deputy director general of the Tianjin Environmental Protection Bureau; the chairman of the China Chamber of International Commerce and the chairman of the China Council for Promotion of International Trade.
The Solucorp-Smart International agreement guaranteed, among other things, completion of Phase I of the project within one year and that the treated slag under acid rain conditions would meet simulated requirements for the hazardous materials to be non-leachable for 1,000 years. The remediation outcome must also meet Chinese and U.S. Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure Toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP) is a soil sample extraction method for chemical analysis.

Another important facet of the agreement, BOHAI Chemical also agreed to commence negotiations to structure a joint venture whereby BOHAI Chemical Group would be an exclusive licensee to market and expand, for Solucorp and Smart, the patented MBS technology in stabilizing and remediating contaminated contaminated,

2. made contaminated by adding infective or radiographic materials.
3. an infective surface or object. waste streams in existence throughout China.
BOHAI officials said that utilization of Solucorp's MBS technology, "will have a huge impact on the environmental protection movement nationally in China."
