Press Release – Hao International invests in Dust Prevention Company

On April 7th, 2014 Hao International, a China‐focused investment company completed its strategic investment in Beijing Wuvio Environmental Technology.

The investment entails a long‐term commitment of financial and strategic sources aimed at developing Beijing Wuvio into China’s leading dust‐prevention company. Beijing Wuvio Environmental Technology employs environmentally friendly products to combat dust emissions in iron, coal harbors, industrial storage facilities, construction sites and waste management processes.

The company, which entered the Chinese market in 2012, is an affiliate of Wuvio Chemicals International, a leading European dust prevention company based in the Netherlands. Its cost-effective products replace conventional methods, which often involve high capital investment, unresolved dust emissions and large scale waste of scarce water resources.

The announcement coincides with a period of unrivalled air‐pollution expanding across China caused by continuous industrialization and urban construction. This development has the potential to make a major impact on fugitive dust emissions and mitigate harmful effects on population health.

According to Mr. Liu, Chairman of Hao International, and Wuvio‐founder Mr. Hagen:

“Wuvio’s technology will make a huge contribution to reduce air pollution in China and surpass the Government’s objective to mitigate fine‐dust emissions by 25% by 2017 in major cities.”

The strategic partnership was arranged by SDS Ventures, a Beijing‐based environmental technology firm, in close collaboration with the other co‐founders of Beijing Wuvio and Hao International.
