Ecosphere Technologies Announces New Purchase Order for Ozonix® EF10M Water Treatment System

Kualiti Alam SDN BHD to Deploy Ecosphere's Patented Ozonix® Technology in Malaysia for Industrial Wastewater Treatment Applications

STUART, FL--(Marketwired - April 08, 2015) - Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: ESPH), a technology development and intellectual property licensing company, today announced the recent receipt of a $650,000 purchase order for an Ozonix® EF10M water treatment system by Kualiti Alam SDN BHD, a Malaysian waste management and renewable energy solutions provider, to be used for industrial wastewater treatment applications in Malaysia.

Kualiti Alam SDN BHD paid Ecosphere a deposit for the Ozonix® EF10M water treatment system and manufacturing has begun at Ecosphere's Corporate Headquarters in Stuart, Florida USA. Under the terms of the equipment purchase agreement, the Ozonix® EF10M water treatment system is scheduled to be delivered in July 2015.

Dennis McGuire, Chairman and CEO of Ecosphere Technologies stated, "Kualiti Alam SDN BHD is one of our newest Ozonix® technology customers and we have been working closely with them for over a year on the feasibility of introducing our patented Ozonix® technology into the industrial wastewater market in Malaysia."

McGuire continued, "In addition to recent Ozonix® licensing transactions and equipment purchase orders in the United States, Canada and Brazil, we are delighted to be working with Kualiti Alam SDN BHD and look forward to building a long-term relationship and partnership with them in Malaysia."

Khalid Bahsoon, CEO of Kualiti Alam SDN BHD, commented, "We are excited to deploy Ecosphere's patented Ozonix® technology in Malaysia. We look forward to providing our clients with high-volume, chemical-free water treatment and recycling services in a cost effective, safe and environmentally sound manner. We visited the United States to see the Ozonix® technology operate and were very impressed with the equipment and the results obtained. We look forward to working together."

"The latest Ozonix® equipment purchase agreement with Kualiti Alam SDN BHD is an example of the diverse equipment opportunities outside of the oil and gas water treatment space," stated Dean Becker, Director and Intellectual Property Strategist for Ecosphere Technologies. "In 2009, Ecosphere and Fidelity National Environmental Solutions, LLC ('FNES') pioneered the treatment and recycling of produced and flowback waters with our Ozonix® technology, a patented, Ozone-based Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) capable of treating 100% of the water required for hydraulic fracturing operations. Today, Ozonix® continues to be a game-changing product for the oil and gas industry, having been used on more than 1,200 oil and natural gas wells around the United States and Canada, recycling over 5 billion gallons of water and continuing to offer customers a competitive and cost-effective advantage over the use of conventional chemicals that have a tough time dealing with the high bacteria loads we encounter when recycling these produced waters."

Becker further stated, "We will continue to work with U.S. and international companies to recognize the benefits of Ecosphere's patented Ozonix® technology for various industries and applications, resulting in additional Ozonix® licenses and equipment purchase agreements that are currently available for numerous other countries and regions around the world."
