BTX Holdings Completes Phase II Testing; BRT Machine Ready for Market

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 12, 2007 -- BTX Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: BTXO) announced today that Phase II testing of its BRT machine has been completed. The Company passed a variety of biomass wastes through the machine. On each test, the BRT successfully reduced the weight and volume of the biomass waste stream by over 50%. The company is now prepared to begin its marketing efforts.

The BioReduction machine, or BRT, can process raw biomass waste, such as fruit and vegetable waste, restaurant food waste and others, in order to reduce its weight and volume. The reduction results in a waste disposal cost savings for the customer. The waste streams are fed into the machine so that the free water and other liquefied material can be extracted. The output is in the form of two streams; the first being a nutrient rich liquid which can be used in ethanol production, sold as fertilizer, or disposed of into the sewage system. The second stream consists of the solid waste which is less than 50% of its original weight and volume. It can then be disposed of using traditional methods, sold as animal fodder or fertilizer, or further processed to create other products.

Scott J. Silverman, BTX President and CEO, said, "The BRT prototype machine is finally complete after two years of development. I am ecstatic that in its Phase II testing, the machine exceeded my expectations. Early interest in this exciting technology has been substantial, and I look forward to officially beginning our marketing efforts and taking our first orders soon."
