LiqTech International Inc. Enters Into Strategic Alliance With Scandinavian Brake Systems and Their Notox Division

Company Expands Production Capacity of Diesel Particulate Filters From 400,000 Liter to 1,400,000 Liter

GENTOFTE, DENMARK--(Marketwire - Nov 22, 2011) - LiqTech International, Inc. (OTCBB: LIQT) announced today that the Company has entered into an alliance with Scandinavian Brake Systems to utilize the production capacity of their division Notox.

LiqTech and Notox have been competitors in supplying the automotive market with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF). The companies have now joined forces with a goal to penetrate new and larger markets. LiqTech will sell and market DPF in the global market and Scandinavian Brake Systems will produce DPF for LiqTech.

LiqTech CEO, Lasse Andreassen, stated, "For many years we have had the greatest respect for Scandinavian Brake Systems and their high quality production facilities. We have been fortunate to develop our business and establish a market position in North America, Asia and Europe in competition with Scandinavian Brake Systems and their division Notox. Now joining forces, LiqTech will increase production capacity by more than 200 percent, which will enable us to focus on the next stage of our strategic goal, the OEM market in the U.S., Asia and Europe."

CEO Hans Fuglgaard, Scandinavian Brake Systems, commented, "We have built a state of the art production facility for Notox, investing more than $50,000,000; with our agreement with LiqTech International, we can now start to utilize our facility's potential. Notox is very experienced in production, but has had difficulties with sales and marketing. We have admired the progress of LiqTech International and see the alliance as a perfect match when approaching the new market opportunities for DPF."
