Environmental Solutions Worldwide, Inc. Diesel Locomotive Catalyst Evaluated at Independent Laboratory

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 7, 2005) - Environmental Solutions Worldwide, Inc. (ESW) (OTCBB:ESWW) announced today that the Company is participating in a comprehensive locomotive emission testing and evaluation program at a United States based, internationally recognized, independent research laboratory. The program started in May 2001 and for the better part of 2004 involved testing of ESW's proprietary oxidation catalyst system designed specifically for extreme engine operating conditions. The program is being conducted as part of an overall project to evaluate Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC's) and particulate filter technologies and is intended to evaluate the feasibility to control Particulate Matter (PM) emissions.

For the laboratory evaluation program, ESW catalyst engineers devised a new and innovative catalyst configuration based in part on the Company's California Air Resources Board (CARB) Level II verified proprietary catalyzed metallic substrate. The installation called for a custom designed catalyst system installed on a 2,000 horsepower EMD 16-cylinder two-stroke diesel locomotive engine. MJ Bradley & Associates, Inc. (MJBA), a consulting firm that specializes in proof of concept demonstrations, has been working with ESW on this application to help ensure that the ESW catalyst proves to be a durable and effective measure to this particularly difficult application.

The current program focuses on the effectiveness of emission control hardware to reduce PM emission levels with durability testing scheduled in the fall of 2005. The two stroke design and relatively high lubrication oil consumption of these engines makes them an extremely difficult catalyst application due to the high PM accumulation and susceptibility to catalyst plugging. The flexible characteristics of the ESW substrate have allowed ESW engineers to avoid catalyst plugging in this extreme application.

Mr. David Johnson, ESW's President and CEO commented, "Our Company participated in this evaluation project because we believed our catalyst could provide meaningful reductions and has the flexibility to be implemented into a locomotive engine envelope without requiring modifications to the existing exhaust system. This is a very important program that we expect will demonstrate the potential for meaningful emissions reductions in a large sector of the diesel power industry."

"The ESW catalyst has so far exceeded internal expectations with verified oxidation performance, no exhaust backpressure rise, and with no evidence of catalyst plugging, Mr. Johnson further remarked. The ongoing program is expected to conclude in December 2005 including the performance evaluation and 500 hours of durability testing."
