Q2 Technologies Acquires Assets of Adapco Environmental Solutions

Vulchur brand of odor control chemicals will be expanded to include Q2 offerings

Q2 Technologies, LLC recently announced the acquisition of the assets of Adapco
Environmental Solutions (AES), an innovator of leading edge chemistries and instruments for the municipal odor control market.

Inc., specializes in the control of hydrogen sulfide produced from industrial and municipal sources utilizing proprietary technologies.

Frontier Research and Chemicals Company, Inc., a hydrogen sulfide scavenger and natural gas field chemicals business. The AES acquisition solidifies Q2 Technologies' leadership position in the application of H2S control chemistry across all industries served. As part of the transaction, Q2 Technologies acquired AES' odor control scrubber patents and its Vulchur line of products. The Vulchur brand of odor control chemicals will be expanded to include new Q2 product offerings."

Lozano also stated, "The established presence of the Vulchur name in the municipal area combined with the technological strength of Q2 Technologies will bring us closer to the end user with unparalleled ability to respond to the customer's odor control issues efficiently and cost-effectively. We look forward to rolling out a revitalized Vulchur odor control system."

The former AES operation will become the new Environmental Solutions Division within the Q2 Technologies organization, providing technical support and service to the existing
AES customer base as well as new customers seeking a safe, reliable and cost-effective solution to H2S and odor control challenges. Ian Knapp has been appointed vice president of Environmental Solutions Division.
