Green Bridge Technologies International, Inc. Subsidiary Successfully Tests Integrated Vortex Muffler/Resonator System

LINDEN, MI--(Marketwire - April 6, 2010) -  Green Bridge Technologies International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GRBT) is pleased to announce that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Vapor Technologies, has successfully integrated its vortex muffler with an innovative resonator design to cancel unwanted frequencies. The integrated design is a compact, cost effective package that produces a pleasing tone without the annoying drone typically associated with performance mufflers typically installed on high horsepower "muscle" car and diesel trucks. The proprietary technology also produces lower back pressure, which aids in an overall increase of engine efficiency, performance and power output.

Greatly reduced manufacturing costs for the integrated muffler/resonator is very significant since there are over 250 million vehicles on the road in the US today, including autos, SUVs and light trucks and this number increases on average by 4 million per year. Worldwide vehicle production this year has exceeded 48.7 million cars and over 6 million commercial vehicles, heavy trucks, buses and coaches.

"With the integration of the resonator we have made an important enhancement to our unique vortex design," stated Leonard Baxter, CEO and President of Green Bridge Technologies International, Inc. "We have just completed a number of small changes, which when added together make a vast improvement to the performance of the vortex muffler while simultaneously reducing costs to manufacture. We are still on target to introduce this product to the automotive and truck market for both OEM and aftermarket sales in 2010."

The Company recently announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Air Pure Systems, has validated the testing of its Fuel Reformer Device with a third party road test conducted by Centennial, Colorado-based, Leading Points Corporation. Executives from both Air Pure Systems and Leading Points Corporation planned, coordinated and executed two separate yet "controlled field tests" that calculated the fuel economy of a 1999 Ford Expedition over a 368-mile road course. Test results demonstrate that with the patent pending Fuel Reformer Device installed, the vehicle had a 28.9% increase in fuel economy versus performance with the standard fuel system. Both of the tests were validated by Kevin Sullivan, Lieutenant Colonel, USA (Ret.), CEO of Leading Points Corporation and Vice President of Green Bridge Technologies International, Inc.'s Government Services Division.
