EC Power Water Treatment Subsidiary Introducing New Water Aeration Technology to North American Market

Already in Service at Treatment Plants in the Pacific Rim, "Basin Beast" Significantly Outperforms Conventional Mechanical Aerators

MONTCLAIR, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 3, 2005 -- EC Power, Inc. (OTC: ECPW) announced today that FBC Technologies, the company's wastewater treatment subsidiary, has begun the North American introduction of "Basin Beast," a major advance in aeration technology, developed by Waste Solutions, FBC's New Zealand partner.

Already in service at municipal and industrial water treatment plants around the Pacific Rim, the "Basin Beast" blends the principles of mechanical aeration with fine bubble diffusion to deliver dissolved oxygen at several magnitudes greater than conventional mechanical surface aerators. Significant additional advantages of the new system include: reduced shearing of microorganisms; no icing in cold water and no erosion or cratering of treatment ponds, basins and lagoons -- a widespread problem associated with most mechanical aerators now in use.

Klaus Siebert, EC Power's vice chairman in charge of wastewater treatment, stated, "We believe this new, proven technology will be well received in the large and growing North American water treatment market, where FBC increasingly is being recognized as an industry leader and innovator."
