EMTA Diesel Fuel Additive Receives Texas and EPA Approval as Meeting the Nation's Most Stringent Emissions Standards

Clean Boost Low Emission (CB-LE) Diesel Fuel Treatment Reduces Emissions of Nitrogen Oxides and Particulate Matter, Without Impacting Fuel Economy

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 10, 2007 -- EMTA Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: EMHD), an energy, fuel and environmental conservation company, announced today that the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality ("TCEQ") has approved Clean Boost LE Diesel Fuel Treatment as meeting the state's stringent low-emission diesel fuel regulations. Clean Boost LE Diesel Fuel Treatment is produced by White Sands, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of EMTA Holdings.

Tests conducted over the past 18 months by the independent nonprofit research institute in San Antonio, Texas, demonstrated that the Clean Boost LE Diesel Fuel Treatment additive reduces nitrous-oxide (NOx) emissions and particulate matter (black smoke) to levels that bring diesel-powered vehicles into compliance with the regulations of the TCEQ -- without impacting fuel economy. The testing was observed and approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which is considering extending the strict clean air regulations in Texas to the rest of the nation.

The approval qualifies Clean Boost LE Diesel Fuel Treatment as an approved additive for The Texas Low Emission Diesel (TxLED) program, which is currently applied to 110 Texas counties, including the metropolitan areas of Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Austin and San Antonio. Nationwide, there are a total of 500 counties where diesel emissions exceed EPA standards.

Texas is one of the largest diesel producers in the nation. By adding Clean Boost LE Diesel Fuel Treatment to their product at the refinery, diesel producers can bring their fuel into compliance with the TxLED program. In 2001, the TCEQ estimated that 12-14 million gallons of fuel per day required treatment to meet emissions standards; current estimates indicate at least 100 million gallons of fuel per day, nationwide, require such treatment.

"We are extremely pleased to announce the results of these tests," declared Ed Lonergan, CEO, EMTA Corporation. "They demonstrate that our Clean Boost LE Diesel Fuel Treatment reduces both NOx and particulate emissions -- without negatively impacting fuel consumption. Moreover, we believe we can do this at substantially lower cost than any competitors. This is a very large market, and its growth potential is enormous, as hundreds of other counties in Texas and adjacent states eventually move into compliance with state and federal requirements. For EMTA, this is a major breakthrough confirming our belief that Clean Boost LE Diesel Fuel Treatment is the best and most competitive product currently available. Volume production is expected to begin within the next 60 days, and we project that within the following 90 days, revenues will increase by approximately two million dollars ($2,000,000) per month."
