QuestAir Receives Follow-On Order for H-3200 Hydrogen Purifiers From HyRadix Inc.

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 8, 2007) - QuestAir Technologies Inc. (TSX:QAR)(AIM:QAR) announced today that it has received a follow-on order from HyRadix Inc. for 10 H-3200 hydrogen purifiers, for use in HyRadix's Aptus® and Adeo® hydrogen generators. HyRadix will take immediate delivery of the first two H-3200 units, manufactured to CE specifications for the European market.

Jonathan Wilkinson, QuestAir's President and CEO said that this new order was placed under the terms of a five-year preferred supplier agreement signed by QuestAir and HyRadix in June 2005.

"HyRadix has made tremendous progress with the sales of its Aptus and Adeo hydrogen generators, having placed systems at customer sites in both North America and Asia over the past two years. The 10-unit order received today further illustrates the strong value proposition offered by HyRadix's hydrogen generators, including QuestAir's H-3200 purifiers," Wilkinson said.

In June 2005 QuestAir and HyRadix signed a five-year preferred supplier agreement, under which QuestAir's H-3200 hydrogen purifiers are integrated into HyRadix's current range of Aptus and Adeo branded hydrogen generators. HyRadix's Aptus hydrogen generator targets industrial markets including metals heat treating, float glass plants, semi-conductor fabrication and edible oil processing. The Adeo is used in fueling stations serving fuel cell vehicles and internal combustion engines running on hydrogen or natural gas/hydrogen blends.
