Flexible Solutions Thanks Canadian Government Program for Financial Support

VICTORIA, BC--(Marketwire - September 11, 2008) - FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (AMEX: FSI) (FRANKFURT: FXT) is the developer and manufacturer of biodegradable and environmentally safe water and energy conservation technologies. The NCS Division, responsible for the majority of FSI's revenue, produces biodegradable polyaspartic acid for oil field scale control, detergent formulations and fertilizer enhancement. Today the Company would like to publicly thank the Agriculture and Agri-Food (AAFC) Agri-Opportunities Program for its financial support in construction of FSI's Alberta, Canada based aspartic acid plant.

The first round of funding from this federal government program has been received without hold up. The contribution was promised in February and delivered when requested. The Company would like to thank Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada for helping Flexible Solutions through the loan process. Without such programs in place, development of new processes, in these economic times, would be difficult if not impossible.

The new plant is designed to convert certain agricultural output into aspartic acid. The aspartic acid will be shipped to FSI's Illinois plant for conversion into biodegradable polyaspartic acid. The Company looks forward to this first of a kind plant start-up.
