STWA Closes on $467,500 Bridge Financing

Company Is Positioned to Secure Its Next Round of Senior Funding to Bring Its ELEKTRA™ Product to Market

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 1, 2009) - Save The World Air, Inc. (OTCBB: ZERO), an innovative pioneer in the clean technology industry focused on energy efficiency and air quality issues, reported today that it has closed on $467,500 in bridge financing. The company is anticipating closing on addition funds, to close out this round of financing.

"Accelerating our business plan was predicated on the closing of our bridge financing," stated Mr. Cecil Bond Kyte, Chairman and CEO of Save The World Air, Inc. "We suffered delays associated with our bridge financing and are now in a position to move forward." Kyte continued, "Regardless of the delays associated with funding, management has been able to raise $467,500 of the bridge financing on its own, and will continue to do so. Management has also supplemented the bridge with other possible sources of funding which could materialize at any moment."

"It is also worth noting that executives have contributed approximately $30,000 of their own, unsecured dollars, to support the company in the past few months," added Kyte. "This was precluded by an investment by Dr. Luke Turgeon, who is leading ELEKTRA development for the company. A commitment of personal funds such as this, outside of management, is truly rare, and we believe a strong testament to the promise that our company and this technology holds."

Kyte continued, "Management is highly confident that there will be continued success in the pursuit of proper financing for the Company. We believe we have demonstrated our commitment and belief by making unsecured loans directly to the Company. In these tumultuous macro-economic times I can say with confidence that I would not be risking personal assets if I did not have a steadfast and unyielding commitment to this Company. STWA's current business plan was predicated on a $500,000 bridge to a senior raise of $2-3 million dollars." Kyte concluded, "The company is focused on bringing its core Elektra™ technology to market and achieving material revenues. This goal is our primary focus as we believe it the strongest route to increase shareholder value."
