Purio Announces Compact Unit Completion and Testing

BLAINE, WA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Purio (OTCBB: PURO) is pleased to announce that the construction of its compact unit has now been completed and preliminary testing has begun.

"We have added a second dimension to the over-all testing of this new unit," says Earl Switenky, spokesman for Purio. "In addition to our previous plans of testing the unit on a wastewater location, we feel that, since the unit is new, it is most appropriate that we apply it to a drinking water production assignment first. The location for this test has been determined and the first water source is an irrigation canal that is surrounded by dairy farms and horticulture enterprises. Our goal is to economically upgrade the water to drinking water quality, and at the same time find the maximum through-put potential of the machine. We have met an aggressive goal in the area of energy efficiency in that we are definitely within the range of capability of being powered by a compact solar power pack in suitable regions."

"Over the course of the next few weeks we plan to challenge the unit's capability by selecting a variety of water and wastewater sources in order to verify the scope of applications that this technology may address," says Switenky.

Switenky added, "This compact, high-production unit is designed without membrane filters and that, we believe, is a break-through in the water purification industry. We are determined to achieve a lower cost of water purification for the whole planet to enjoy."
