reWORKS Tests Positive in University of Guelph Trials

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2007) - reWORKS Environmental Corp. (TSX VENTURE:REW), today announced that the University of Guelph Turfgrass Institute has released preliminary results from fertility trials of its worm castings, which are produced by its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, Forterra Inc.

As stated in a report by Dr. Ken Carey of the University of Guelph Turfgrass Institute, the worm castings had a significant positive effect on germination, shoot growth and establishment in all three turfgrass species tested. Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass and creeping bentgrass were tested in the study. A series of trials measured the effects of using Forterra worm castings in the growing mix, compared to growing media without worm castings. The rate of germination, growth of the shoot system, establishment of seedlings, seedling vigour, turf performance (colour and quality), and total root system growth were all evaluated during the trials.

"The results are in line with our expectations and our experience that Forterra is an effective, organic soil care solution for the turf industry and other large scale users.", said Gary Gould, President of reWORKS. "These trials are just the beginning of an ongoing program of testing by accredited research organizations."
