Purio Accepts West African Leaders' Invitation to Present Technology

BLAINE, WA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - Purio Inc. (OTCBB: PURO) is pleased to report that it has accepted an invitation to meet with high ranking government officials from a region of West Africa to formally present its water/wastewater technology.

"Discussions have been taking place between Purio and a representative of the Minister of Presidential and Public Affairs for several months while they have been searching the planet for the most effective water and wastewater treatment technology," says Joseph Swanson, VP of Purio. "Purio has communicated the features and benefits, performance statistics, and the versatility of our technology and, according to their feed-back, it appears that we may have equipment that's unique in the world. We are pleased that we've been invited to formally present our technology to the assembly at this important event."

Participating in the meeting, scheduled for Saturday, November 22, will be The United Nations Development Program (UNDP), a number of financial institutions including United Bank of Africa, and a delegation of government dignitaries including The Minister of Presidential and Public Affairs. A private meeting between Purio Executives and the Minister is planned following the main event to discuss possible strategies regarding Purio's involvement in the country's development plans.

Daryl English, President of Purio, says, "Developing countries are well aware that a most important factor influencing their populations' ability to prosper is good health. Clean, safe water is at the top of their list of priorities in that quest, and that's where Purio comes in. Our technology is designed to be versatile so that it can be deployed to either drinking water purification, or wastewater treatment. That versatility, along with the energy efficiency, offers a combination of benefits that are very attractive. We look forward to this meeting as a first step toward the development of productive and long-lasting relationships in West Africa so that together, we may accomplish this all-important task."
