Genoil Inc. Receives Coast Guard Certification for Its Crystal MU 30 and MU 40 Bilge Separators

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2011) - Genoil Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GNO) (OTCBB:GNOLF) is pleased to announce that two larger model Crystal MU 30 and MU 40 oily-water separators, of 5 m3/h and 10 m3/h capacity, have recently been certified by the US Coast Guard in accordance with IMO Resolution MEPC 107 (49). These models are essential in offering a complete line of bilge separators.

The US Coast Guard/IMO MEPC 107 (49) certifies bilge separators that achieve less than 15 parts per million (ppm) oil content. While lower oil contamination of the effluent is highly desirable, the 15 ppm limit was set due to the industry's inability to provide more efficient separators. However, during the most recent Crystal test, oil readings indicated zero ppm oil content in the effluent without filters.

"This certification is the culmination of nine years of research and development," said David Lifschultz, Genoil's Chairman and CEO. "Our Crystal separators' thoroughly innovative approach in oil-water separation virtually eliminates the use of filters, which results in significant savings in operating costs and zero downtime."

Mr. Lifschultz concluded, "Apart from setting new purity standards in the industry, the Crystal Separator saves $16,000 a year on filter changes, has a smaller footprint and is 75% cheaper than competitor's products, according to the ship owner."

The Crystal separators are now available in a variety of models, ranging from the industry's most compact bilge unit of 0.25 m3/h, to the recently approved 5 and 10 m3/h capacity units. Korean, Japanese and Chinese shipyards, which comprise a majority of the shipbuilding industry, require companies to produce coast guard certified separators that reach up to 10 m3/h capacity in order to be placed on their list of manufacturers. The approval of Genoil's 10 m3/h unit affords these countries the opportunity to choose the Company for their oily-water separation projects.

Work on a material GHU upgrading contract is nearing completion.
