AWE System to Address National Energy Conservation Imperative

TUCSON, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 22, 2006 --Environmental Technologies International, Inc. (OTC: EMTI) is encouraged by President Bush's statements to the nation during his recent State of the Union address regarding the need for America to cure itself of the addiction to foreign oil through the use of all practical energy-saving measures and alternate energy sources across the nation. The ability to reduce electricity consumption by up to 50% in commercial and residential buildings retrofitted with the Company's AWE technology is seen by EMTI's management as a strong impetus for building owners/operators to make the modest investment required to install the AWE technology. The technology will pay for itself in just a few years, and will continue paying dividends in the form of lower electric bills, less mold, high purity byproduct water, and a cleaner indoor environment, for the life of the building. To the degree that it is implemented, AWE will also reduce the high demands currently being put upon the nation's electrical utilities.

The following announcement by the Environmental Protection Agency on its Energy Star website demonstrates just how critical the goals of energy conservation, cleaner indoor environments, and water conservation have become in all federal government buildings:

EPA Adopts Principles from White House Summit on Sustainable Buildings (January 2006) "Following a White House Summit on Sustainable Buildings, EPA adopted a set of Guiding Principles for designing and operating federal facilities including: integrated design, energy performance, water conservation, and indoor environmental quality." Many states, including the State of Florida, (home of Awe Engineering, Inc.) have also committed to improving the energy efficiency of its government buildings:

"The State of Florida is committed to improving the energy efficiency of its government and educational facilities. To support EPA's ENERGY STAR Challenge, the Florida Energy Office will:

--  Educate other government agencies and schools throughout the state on
    the financial and environmental benefits of improving energy efficiency;
--  Train schools and governments to use ENERGY STAR's tools to help
    measure their energy use and identify buildings that offer the greatest
    opportunity for improvement; and
--  Recognize Florida organizations that improve energy efficiency by 10
    percent or more."

Through a retrofit to HVAC systems on existing buildings, the AWE system is capable of significantly reducing electrical costs, while also improving air quality and humidity control, and achieving the virtual elimination of mold and mildew in the building. At no extra cost, the system also produces by-product pure water for use by building tenants. AWE is the truly green approach to conserving energy.

Accordingly, EMTI wishes to caution readers of this announcement that its future actual results may differ materially from those that any forward-looking statements may imply.
