Purio Inc. Provides Update on Mobile Water Treatment Demonstration and Initial Testing

BLAINE, WA--(Marketwire - August 11, 2008) - Purio Inc. (OTCBB: PURO) Purio Inc. is pleased to announce that its drinking water clarification/purification demonstration taking place in the prairie province of Saskatchewan Canada has produced very satisfying in-house product water analysis and that product water samples from a series of test ports strategically positioned on the machine will be obtained during routine operation of the equipment and submitted to an accredited independent lab early in this week.

Leonard Girard, Chief Science Officer for Purio Inc. says, "Purio has operated the down-scaled model of our patented technology using a variety of water samples and that exercise has proven the unit's ability to produce fresh, clear, safe drinking water from contaminated and unsafe sources. Our next step is to prove the results in a recognized and accepted format which is only possible through an independent recognized lab."

"As a further demonstration of the unit's ability, around mid-week, we are preparing to move the unit to a new location at a shallow lake near a recreational resort village to show the transportability of the unit, and its ability to produce safe water from a variety of sources," Girard comments. "We will also be ordering and reporting on a complete battery of lab analysis on that operation as well."

Earl Switenky, spokesman for Purio Inc. says, "Because our technology clarifies water without the use of membranes, we have captured the attention of interested parties from around the world. Some have admitted their skepticism that they don't believe that our claims are possible. Through our operations and testing through this week, and the following accredited lab reports, we intend to make believers out of even the most discriminating observers. The economical processing methods we use may open doors of possibilities for thirsty communities and companies around the world who simply won't accept unsafe drinking water any longer."
