ESW Diesel Catalyst Approved For Application On European OEM Utility Vehicle

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 23, 2005) - Environmental Solutions Worldwide, Inc. (ESW) (OTCBB:ESWW) announced today that its proprietary high-performance Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) has been accepted by a major European Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) as part of an approved diesel Particulate Matter (PM) reduction system.

PURI tech GmbH working with ESW's catalyst engineers have incorporated the Company's High Performance DOC into an innovative PM emissions control system. The complete system was designed specifically for first fit and retrofit applications on the manufacturer's diesel powered utility vehicles. The kit is designed to be installed by an authorized dealer as a direct replacement retrofit kit of the factory installed standard muffler and is also being made available as an OEM factory option.

ESW's proprietary catalyst was selected as a component for the development of the system due to the technologies associated high PM reductions and robust durability properties. The ESW catalyzed substrate provides the initial PM reductions and assists the overall system to reduce in excess of 90% of the engines PM output. Although the system was designed initially for vehicle applications with low engine temperature operating cycles, it provides optimum PM emission reductions at all engine operating temperatures.

"We are pleased to be working with ESW and their professional team during the development of this OEM approved system. The flexibility of the ESW catalyzed substrate helped to ensure the success of this program," said PURI tech President B Kahlert, "Through the application of advanced emission control technology and the use of ultra low sulfur diesel fuel, this system demonstrates that innovative, clean air progress is possible even on vehicle applications which do not lend themselves for traditional PM reduction technologies. The ESW product has made a significant contribution to ensure overall system feasibility in this vehicle application."

Mr. David J. Johnson, ESW's President and CEO commented, "It is very exiting to be in a position where our product has become an integral component in an OEM approved system. The fact that the system is not dependant on the engine exhaust temperature to operate makes it perfect for ON and OFF-Road applications where exhaust temperatures are too low for conventional filter technologies." Mr. Johnson further stated "We consider the acceptance of this new product to be an important step for the Company in its quest to become a complete catalyst supplier in every sector of the global market."
