QuestAir to Supply Methane Recovery System for New Hampshire Landfill Gas-To-Energy Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2007) - QuestAir Technologies Inc. (TSX:QAR)(AIM:QAR) announced today that it has received an order valued at approximately CDN$1.2 million for a M-3100 methane recovery system for use in a landfill gas-to-energy project in New Hampshire. The order was received from SCS Energy, a division of SCS Engineers, a leader in the design, construction and operation of landfill gas-to-energy projects in the US.

Jonathan Wilkinson, President and CEO of QuestAir, said, "QuestAir's M-3100 will increase the energy content of landfill gas from the Rochester Neck Road landfill by removing carbon dioxide. The upgraded product gas will be used to fire a combined cycle cogeneration facility at the University of New Hampshire ("UNH"), generating both electrical power and steam for building heating."

"The University of New Hampshire is a leader in sustainability and the use of renewable energy. The system supplied by SCS Energy, including QuestAir's M-3100, will allow UNH to replace fossil fuels with renewable upgraded landfill gas in their existing cogeneration facility, which provides 75% of the university's energy requirements."

"This is expected to result in significant environmental and economic benefits, including a direct reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, as well as substantial cost savings from lower natural gas consumption," Wilkinson said.

Jeffrey Pierce, Vice President of SCS Energy, said, "SCS selected a QuestAir M-3100 PSA system for the UNH project because its rotary valve provides a significant improvement in PSA design. Also, the M-3100's small size, attractive economics, and simplicity of operation provide a good solution for a stable, enhanced BTU fuel gas to fire UNH's 8 MW turbine."

About the QuestAir M-3100

QuestAir's M-3100 purifies methane-containing gas streams such as landfill gas and anaerobic digester gas to high purity methane, suitable for supplementing existing natural gas supplies. QuestAir's PSA process and proprietary rotary valve technology deliver higher efficiency than conventional PSA systems in a more compact, cost-effective package. QuestAir's M-3100 system can upgrade up to 9 million cubic feet of biogas per day.
