MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Jan. 24, 2018) - Dundee Sustainable Technologies Inc. ("DST or the Corporation") (CSE:DST)(CSE:DST.CN)(CNSX:DST) is pleased to announce that the Government of Canada has awarded funding in the amount of $1.25 million through the Sustainable Development Technology Canada ("SDTC") fund for continued development of our patented arsenic vitrification technology. This funding will assist DST in delivering an industrial scale arsenic vitrification plant to a metals processing facility. The construction of the plant will be completed in the third quarter of 2018, and after commissioning, will be operational in late 2018 or early 2019.

The goal of this program is to prove the Corporation's arsenic vitrification in an industrial setting. Mr. Brian Howlett stated, "This program is the next logical step to fully commercialize the arsenic technology. The Corporation is currently working on development projects in the arsenopyrite and cobalt space that will benefit from this development work. We would like to thank SDTC and the Government of Canada for their continued support of our Canadian made technologies".
