GreenHouse and Seychelle to Supply Filtration Equipment to Department of Defense

Greenhouse will be exclusive distributor to department for Seychelle products

GreenHouse Holdings Inc. announced a partnership with Seychelle Environmental Technologies Inc. Together, the companies will offer a variety of water filtration and conservation technologies to the Department of Defense (DOD).

"Water, the single most important life-sustaining resource on our planet, is rapidly becoming the single source of conflict around the globe. In the last three decades I have observed the challenges facing our nation and the emerging world over access to clean water,” said Ken Robinson, founder of Greenhouse Holdings. “I am extremely excited to partner with Seychelles to bring this unique capability to U.S. soldiers by providing them safe water, regardless of the sources, as they perform humanitarian assistance globally. Our two companies complement each other well with a host of products that promote both portability and sustainability and remain relevant to the national interest."

Under the terms of the agreement, Seychelle has chosen GreenHouse to be its exclusive distributor on Department of Defense RFP's for which water filtration products are applicable. This will allow GreenHouse to expand its menu of sustainable products and allow Seychelle to benefit from GreenHouse's relationships with high-ranking DOD officials and department heads.

According to the companies, Seychelle portable filtration products utilize ionic adsorption micron technology and BIOSAFE to remove up to 99.99% of pollutants and contaminants found in drinking water supplies; with bacteria and virus removal in these advanced filters to six logs (99.9999%). The filters are made in the U.S. and have passed performance tests by government laboratories in the U.S. and sixteen foreign countries using EPA/ANSI protocols, and conforming to NSF Standards 42 and 53. More than 3.5 million filter systems have been sold worldwide to date.

"We are most pleased to join forces with GreenHouse to make available our innovative portable water filtration and purification products to the Department of Defense, and look forward to being able to supply our military worldwide with the water filtration filter systems they need to meet any field conditions they might encounter," said Carl Palmer, president and CEO of Seychelle.
