Respected Electrical Engineer Luke Turgeon, PhD, P.E. Joins STWA

Dr. Turgeon Will Further the Development of the Company's Products in Preparation for Commercialization

MORGAN HILL, CA--(Marketwire - December 30, 2008) - Save The World Air, Inc. (OTCBB: ZERO) today announced that Luke Turgeon, PhD, P.E. has joined the company as an engineering consultant. Dr. Turgeon is working on the design and engineering of the company's products in preparation for commercialization.

Dr. Turgeon is the founder and presently the President of Turgeon Engineering, Inc. He received his BSEE, MSECE, and PhD from the University of Massachusetts in 1971, 1973 and 1977 respectively. He held the position of Assistant Professor at the University of South Dakota School of Mines from 1977 to 1979. From 1979 to 1988 he was a member of the technical staff at AT&T Bell Labs, and from 1988 to present he has been operating Turgeon Engineering.

Cecil Bond Kyte, Chairman of Save The World Air, Inc., stated, "Dr. Turgeon is a welcome addition to the STWA team. His depth of knowledge and experience will be immensely valuable to us as we move the company toward commercialization of our ELEKTRA™ product."

Kyte added, "Dr. Turgeon's experience with semiconductor devices, integrated circuit design and CAD tools will help us to move much more rapidly toward our end goal, which is mass market sales of our products."

While at AT&T Bell Labs, Dr. Turgeon was involved in the development of physical bipolar transistor models for SPICE simulations, developed the first linear array for AT&T Bell Labs, was a leader in the deployment of top down design flow for analog integrated circuit designs, and designed ASICs for ESS5, dc-dc converters, ISDN and the IEEE488 interface. As an independent contractor he has designed ASICs for telephone line feeds, PIN electronics for automatic test equipment, aircraft radar systems, ADSL, cable modems, high reliability laser controllers for submarine optical applications, a CCD driver and a high speed FET driver. He also has developed a mix-signal array for a bi-CMOS process. He has directed the development of a full set of CAD tools (schematic capture, simulation, design rule check, and layout versus schematic verification) at Turgeon Engineering for bi-CMOS mix-signal ASIC design. Dr. Turgeon has been, and continues to be, an advocate of using engineering methodology for the designing of analog integrated circuits.
