Synodon Signs First Waste Management Sector Agreement

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 10, 2010) - Synodon Inc. ("Synodon") (TSX VENTURE:SYD), announces that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Edmonton Waste Management Centre of Excellence (EWMCE) to perform a series of field trials with the realSens™ airborne gas sensing instrument over a variety of waste treatment facilities. The facilities will include closed and active landfill sites, biosolids lagoons and composting sites. The primary gas of interest to be measured during these trials will be methane. EWMCE will participate in the evaluation and interpretation of the results and their correlation to concomitant ground level measurements. One of the main goals of these trials is to collect sufficient information and understanding of plume behavior so as to enable the development of a potential methane emissions quantification protocol for waste management facilities. The work might result in the publication of technical papers or conference presentations.

Adrian Banica, CEO of Synodon Inc. said: "We are very pleased to work with EWMCE on this project and to apply the realSens™ instrument methane sensing ability to the waste management sector which represents a new, and potentially large, market for our technology. Working with the EWMCE will allow us to rapidly evaluate our technology against this market's needs. The Centre's expertise in waste facility operations and understanding of the methane generation processes will be invaluable as we jointly interpret the trial results".

The Edmonton Waste Management Centre of Excellence [EWMCE], is a not-for-profit organization promoting research, development and education in all areas of wastewater and solid waste management.

Canada has 10,000 landfills, of which 200 are major landfills, emitting anaerobically produced methane, a strong greenhouse gas.

In 2007, solid waste landfills in Canada and the United States emitted nearly 177.3 Mtonnes CO2 equivalent of methane representing 26% of the total methane emissions and 2.7% of the two countries total greenhouse gas emissions.
