Isowater Corporation (Isowater) and Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) are pleased to announce the signing of an agreement to advance deuterium oxide (heavy water) technology and sales. The two firms have been collaborating since 2009 demonstrating deuterium oxide technology and selling deuterium oxide to the growing number of users in the high tech, life science and environmental sectors. This agreement marks a major milestone in their efforts.

The agreement enables Isowater to market and sell existing deuterium oxide inventories to certain non- nuclear markets, while advancing new technologies designed to recycle and upgrade deuterium oxide. This upgrading of deuterium oxide will be accomplished using a refinery system developed in collaboration with AECL. In the longer term, Isowater will be developing new primary heavy water production systems to ensure availability of high quality virgin deuterium oxide as world supplies continue to dwindle.

Andrew Stuart, President & CEO of Isowater Corporation, states, "This agreement marks an additional milestone towards Isowater Corporation's goal of being a market driven leader in the field of deuterium- based products. With the signing of this agreement we have sufficient inventory available to meet the needs of the growing non-nuclear markets for deuterium oxide. We are very excited about our developing ability to stabilize the supply side of this very important material and support the scientific research that depends on it. In time, we can scale our production to meet the needs of heavy water moderated reactors."

"The arrangements between Isowater and AECL are an example of how AECL expertise in combination with private sector innovation can expand jobs and growth in Canada" said Robert Walker, President & CEO of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. "This collaboration with Isowater bridges technology, which was developed for nuclear markets, into life science and high tech markets. AECL's Nuclear Laboratories is Canada's premier nuclear science and technology organization. This agreement is an example of how our knowledge and technology can serve the nation as an enabler of business innovation."
