STWA Issues Phase II Testing Update on Applied Oil Technology (AOT™)

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 15, 2011) - Save The World Air, Inc. (OTCBB: ZERO) ("STWA" or the "Company"), an innovative company creating technology focused on energy efficiency of large-scale energy production and improved fuel economy for diesel fleets, today provided the following update related to the testing facility and Applied Oil Technology (AOT™) prototype development at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center (RMOTC).

The RMOTC testing facility has come on line and the testing of the prototype AOT device has commenced. Representatives from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), RMOTC, Colfax Corporation, Temple University and STWA were on site for the testing. Numerous testing parameters and protocols were run and the facility performed as designed. The facility's and prototype's mandatory fail safes and operational design proved reliable and successful. The intensive nature of the tests at this facility and further commercialization upgrades of the AOT are necessary for acceptance in the industry.

Five days of rigorous Phase II testing yielded important data and discoveries related to the operational envelope of the device. After 40 hours of intensive commercial testing at transportation flow rates with fully turbulent line speeds of 10 barrels per minute (412-420gpm) using API 34° with heavy paraffin and 1% water content, certain parts of the AOT's design parameters exceeded expected results. Results from testing have thus far confirmed that the initial performance calculations of the AOT device have proved to be better than originally anticipated. In order to optimize the technology, the unit is now being shipped to Colfax Corporation in Monroe, North Carolina, for servicing and commercialization upgrades. Upon completion of optimization and further testing, additional results will be made public.

The purpose of this Phase II testing with the U.S. Department of Energy is to validate and test the functional prototype with the intention of developing a commercially viable product. The prototype's variability and subsequent commercialization upgrades are designed to analyze and achieve flexibility for further validation and optimization.
