International recognition for Conporec's technology - Conporec Inc. opens $25-Million facility in New York State

SOREL-TRACY, Sept. 19 - Conporec Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CNP),
a company specializing in domestic waste management through
the use of a patented composting technology, today delivered its first
sorting-composting facility outside Québec, located in Walton, State of
New York. The leading-edge facility belongs to Delaware County and is in the
heart of New England, a region known for its innovative environmental
policies. Built at a cost of CDN$25 million with an annual processing capacity
of 41,500 tonnes (45,746 U.S. tons), the plant will enable the region to
reclaim - and thus avoid sending to landfills - more than 80% of the region's
domestic waste.

The facility was officially opened today, with representatives of
New York State, Delaware County, environmental groups, citizens as well as
Conporec senior managers.

"This plant in New York State illustrates that Conporec's technology
provides the most ecologically friendly and economical solution to waste
management problems," said Jean Beaudoin, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Conporec Inc. "It also speaks eloquently of the effectiveness of
the technology used at our Sorel-Tracy plant in Québec, on which this
second facility is modelled." Expressing great pride in his company's first
major achievement in the U.S., Mr. Beaudoin added: "New York State now boasts
one of the most modern domestic waste treatment and composting facilities in
the world."

Jeff Heath, Vice-President of Stearns & Wheler, Conporec's American
partner in this major project, added: "The Delaware County facility is
generating a lot of interest which has led us to discussions on the
possibility of building other projects in New England. With
100 million people, this is a very environmentally aware region looking for
effective and economically viable waste management solutions. It is clear that
a facility such as the one in Walton provides a sustainable solution to
New England's environmental challenges."

Similarly to the existing Sorel-Tracy facility and Conporec's
third facility, soon to be completed in suburban Paris, France, the
New York State facility will be able to reclaim 100% of the organic waste,
instead of landfilling it, in which case it would become a source of
greenhouse gas emissions.

Further, with this new plant, Delaware County will become the US leader
in this field, just like the Sorel-Tracy plant has elevated the
Bas-Richelieu region as the leader in Quebec for waste management. Chosen
following a public call for tenders, Conporec delivered a turnkey solution,
having designed, manufactured and installed all of the process equipment, with
the assistance of a large network of Québec-based manufacturers who
contributed to the project.
