Clark County, Nevada, to Use EMTA's XenTx™ Diesel Fuel Treatment in All County-Owned Diesel-Powered Vehicles

Use Expected to Increase Fuel Efficiency, Reduce Diesel Emissions and Improve Air Quality

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 12, 2007 -- EMTA Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: EMHD), an energy and fuel conservation company, announced today that Clark County, Nevada, has agreed to use XenTx™ Diesel Fuel Treatment with CleanBoost technology in all county-owned diesel-powered vehicles. EMTA estimates delivery of the new fuel to begin March 1, 2007 and continue indefinitely.

The XenTx Diesel Fuel Treatment can reduce smog-producing NOx emissions from diesel and bio-diesel fuels by 12 percent, while also increasing fuel efficiency. The County will be paying an additional $.02/gallon for the treated fuel, but the anticipated increase in fuel economy is equal to a net reduction of $.08/gallon. Total net savings to Clark County, after purchasing XenTx products, are estimated to be $162,000 per year.

Clark County's Automotive Services Department, in collaboration with the County's diesel fuel supplier, Haycock Petroleum Company of Las Vegas, will pre-treat all diesel fuel with EMTA's XenTx Diesel Fuel Treatment prior to delivery to all of the county's fueling facilities.

The move is one of a number of initiatives under way in Clark County to decrease fuel costs and improve local air quality in compliance with Federal clean air regulations.

Clark County's Automotive Services Department maintains approximately 2,800 vehicles for the majority of the County departments. Clark County has a population of 1.9 million in an area that is just over 8,000 square miles, making it larger than the State of New Jersey. It includes landmarks such as the famous Las Vegas Strip, the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, and the cities of Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City and Laughlin. The county employs 8,000 people in 38 departments, with an annual budget of $5.9 billion.

David Johnson, Manager, Clark County Automotive Services, said, "Clark County is committed to conserving energy and reducing air pollution. We are very excited about the potential of EMTA's products to help reduce our emissions and fuel costs."

Edmond L. Lonergan, EMTA Corporation's CEO & President, stated, "We are delighted to be working closely with Clark County's Automotive Services Department to reduce diesel fuel emissions and ensure they stay in line with new Federal regulations and provide healthier air. We look forward to providing, in the near future, the benefits of XenTx Diesel Engine Treatment, which will further increase fuel economy and extend equipment life through reduced friction and wear."
