It is an exciting time for the company."

Robert Cathey, CEO of FNES stated, "Chairman Foley brings the experience and resources to the company that will allow us to rapidly expand and broaden our operations in the oil and gas sector and also begin to explore the many other opportunities within the energy field for the Ozonix® technology. I look forward to working with Mr. Foley and the Board of Directors to maximize our ability to use this proven, non-chemical and environmentally friendly process to treat contaminated waters around the world."
