Purio Receives Distribution Proposal From West Africa

BLAINE, WA--(Marketwire - June 10, 2008) - (OTCBB: PURO) Purio is pleased to announce that it has received a formal request from a yet unnamed company to enter into a full-scale distribution agreement for regions on the African Continent.

Earl Switenky, spokesman for Purio says, "As a company we feel that we have a responsibility to offer our technology to areas of the world in which significant human suffering from lack of safe drinking water might be alleviated. Coupled with that responsibility is our commitment to build shareholder value. Since there are a host of organizations who are in position to fund safe drinking water, and waste-water sanitation projects in West Africa we feel that these negotiations are very important for everyone involved."

In the words of the prospective distribution company:

"The Purio's technology targets all customer bases, the 16 respective West African governments, the private sector and the United Nations and its affiliated organizations already involved in different water resources projects providing not so safe drinking water to the inhabitants of the regions.

"Capitalizing on the potential of the West African market with this remarkable technology is the base to rapidly expanding sales and the introduction of other product and services Purio can offer its potential customers in the region.

"Our company has key alliances in the business sector in West Africa and the Sierra Leonean government. Also affiliations with key players in the other West African governments will facilitate the process of introducing and marketing the technology.

"This allows for both our company and Purio Inc. to significantly participate in high margin water market that is sweeping the world."

"Purio is also presently engaged in communications with representatives from other quickly developing nations including India. The enormity of the need for safe drinking water and wastewater sanitation is apparent to us and we as a company intend to make our resources, both human and financial, available to reach those markets," says Switenky.
