Independent Tests Show New XenTx™ Diesel Additive Reduces Truck Emissions by Nearly 12% and Can Save $1,200 Per Vehicle Per Year

EMTA Announces Large Scale Production and Projects First-Year Sales in Excess of $1.5 Million

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 1, 2007 -- EMTA Holdings Inc. (PINKSHEETS: EMHD), an energy and fuel conservation company, today announced that independent on-highway tests show that EMTA's latest product, XenTx™ Extreme Diesel Fuel Treatment, can save truck owners up to $1200 per vehicle, per year -- while meeting strict new emissions standards in states such as Texas and California.

Edmond L. Lonergan, EMTA Corporation CEO & President, stated, "With this independent verification completed, we are commencing large scale production of this product. Projected sales for the first year are expected to exceed $1.5 million. Second year sales are projected to exceed $6 million."

Tests conducted by the independent non-profit Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) demonstrate that XenTx Extreme Diesel Fuel Treatment not only boosted both engine horsepower and mileage by 3% each, but also reduced nitrous-oxide emissions by 5.7% and particulate matter (black smoke) by as much as 11.6%.

Mr. Lonergan noted, "These independent tests verify what our own in-house testing has already shown: XenTx™ Extreme Diesel Fuel Treatment can provide truckers substantial fuel savings and help them meet various federal and state clean air standards. We predict the trucking industry will embrace this product enthusiastically."

Diesel engines using low-sulfur fuels to reduce emissions lose lubricity, and the increased wear reduces horsepower and mileage and shortens engine life. XenTx Extreme Diesel Fuel Treatment is designed to restore lubricity while reducing emissions.

Each 16-ounce bottle poured into the tank of an average 18-wheel Class A tractor-trailer truck will treat a full tank of 250 gallons. Based on an average diesel fuel price of $2.50 per gallon and an average mileage of 120,000 miles per year per truck, XenTx's 3% savings on horsepower and mileage would save the owner/driver or trucking company approximately $1200 per year per vehicle.

XenTx™ products feature breakthrough technology proven to reduce overall friction and mechanical wear resulting in greater fuel economy. XenTx™ is available at most major retailers including Walmart, Kmart, AutoZone, Pep Boys, Target, and Fred Meyer. For additional information please visit
