Purio Announces 75,000 Liter per Day (LPD) Demonstration

BLAINE, WA--(Marketwire - April 24, 2008) - Purio (OTCBB: PURO) is pleased to announce that it has finalized arrangements to demonstrate the versatility and capability of its patented technology and equipment to the world over the spring and summer months of 2008.

"We plan a two-phase demonstration over the next ninety days," says Earl Switenky, spokesman for Purio. "The first phase of the demo period will be an extension of the 'Drinking Water Production' test that was initiated in late 2007. This previous test run proved the transportable technology's capability to economically produce safe drinking water from a polluted source. This year's run will give us an opportunity to design and demonstrate the entire process train at full capacity of nearly 38,000 LPD, (10,000 USGPD) per module. Since our demo unit has two modules on the skid the total capacity would be about 75,000 LPD. That's a significant amount of safe drinking water per day!" says Switenky.

The second phase of the demonstration will focus on the Purio unit's capability to reclaim residential wastewater by clarifying and sanitizing it. Purio has reached an agreement with the Town of Meath Park for the hosting of this demonstration. The equipment used will be the same equipment as was used in phase one. Meath Park will provide the location for the demonstration which is adjacent to the present sewage lagoons. The process is designed to produce product water that will meet safe-disposal standards and will be suitable for irrigation.

Albert Roode, councilor and spokesman for the Village of Meath Park, says, "Our village council is pleased to host the Purio demonstration. We will be monitoring the project with great interest because, like many other smaller communities in North America, we are looking for potential cost-saving advantages that this newer technology may provide to our already stretched maintenance and expansion budgets."

Purio's patented process has a distinct advantage in that it uses no membrane style filters. This design feature helps to keep costs down and flow-through capacity high by utilizing a mechanical clarification system.

Switenky says, "Inquiries from many countries around the world are arriving regularly and we are looking forward to the opportunity of meeting delegations from countries and regions around the globe."
