Questor Technology Inc. Operational Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2008) -


Questor Technology Inc. ("Questor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:QST) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Terra Verde Emissions Credits Inc. to develop the protocol methodology and sale of the greenhouse gas credits ("offsets") in Alberta generated from the use of Questor's proprietary incinerator technology. New regulations in Alberta are creating market demand for these offsets to facilitate compliance with emissions targets. In 2007, the worldwide market for credits/offsets was valued at more than $59 billion and is predicted to grow exponentially in the wake of increasing focus on corporate responsibility and sustainability.

In addition to positioning Questor's products for the burgeoning credits/offsets market, Questor's primary focus has been on building sales and marketing infrastructure to capitalize on the significant market opportunity for our technology. In that regard, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Ritchie Stagg as Director of Sales and Marketing. Mr. Stagg brings a wealth of sales and marketing experience to our team. To complement his efforts, the Company has also entered into marketing arrangements with Ramsay Machine Works Ltd. and EMCS Industries Ltd., both headquartered in Sidney, British Columbia, for the purpose of targeting industries such as the oil sands, offshore oil and gas platforms, solid waste treatment, waste water treatment and landfills, all of whom would benefit from our technology. As well, Questor has entered into a strategic arrangement with Natco Group Inc. to market and fabricate our products for the United States market. Natco is headquartered in Houston, Texas with sales offices in the United States, Latin America, Southeast Asia, Japan, the United Kingdom, Scandinavia and Russia.

International awareness of and interest in our products and services continues. We will be meeting with China National Petroleum Corporation ("CNPC") and China Petrochemical International Company Ltd. ("SINOPEC") in Dazhou, China next month to discuss business opportunities for Questor's technology. We are also in discussion with a Nigeria based company to explore business initiatives arising from Nigeria's policy position to eliminate flaring by the end of 2008.


- Increasing activity and exposure in the marketplace has led to a substantial increase in requests for proposals. Since the beginning of 2008, Questor has received orders for five incinerators, two of which have already been delivered, with the balance to be delivered in the second and third quarters.

- Questor recently completed its first incinerator rental contract in the United States.

- The Company continues to investigate the commercialization of a waste heat to power conversion application.

- In collaboration with CrystaTech, Inc., we are exploring opportunities to provide a cost effective solution to address sour gas emissions from the oil sands.

Additional details regarding our fourth quarter results and prospects for 2008 will be provided in our financial reports to be filed by the end of April 2008.
