STWA to Present Its Oil Pipeline Efficiency Technology in China

Company to Conduct Meetings With Key Executives and Government Officials Regarding Adoption of STWA's AOT™ on Pipelines Throughout China

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 18, 2012) - STWA, Inc. (OTCBB: ZERO) ("STWA" or the "Company"), a developer of energy efficiency technologies in the multi-billion dollar oil pipeline and diesel engine markets, today announced that the Company's Chairman and CEO, Mr. Cecil Bond Kyte, is scheduled to tour China for high-level meetings with governmental and commercial decision makers in the oil pipeline industry regarding commercialization of its Applied Oil Technology™ (AOT™) oil pipeline efficiency technology.

The trip comes on the heels of a recently announced signing of a Letter of Intent with Beijing Heng He Xing Ye Technology Development Co., Ltd ("TDC") for licensing, sales and distribution of STWA's AOT™ into the Chinese market.

STWA CEO Mr. Cecil Bond Kyte and Mr. Ruilin Zhao, TDC Founder and CEO, will be co-presenting AOT™ and its economic and environmental benefits to key decision makers in China's oil pipeline industry.

"I'm fully confident in a successful commercialization of AOT™ technology in China based on a strong technological platform, shared strategic vision with STWA and the potential needs of China's rapidly developing oil industry. These factors, together with a partnership grounded in mutual sincerity and enthusiasm, assures us of a successful outcome!" stated Mr. Zhao, TDC's Founder and CEO.

The heavy international interest in STWA's Applied Oil Technology (AOT™) was triggered by the U.S. Department of Energy's recently published tests showing that STWA's AOT™ can reduce the amount of energy used in transporting oil per mile by over 13%. The efficiency gains are of immediate interest to Chinese petroleum producers, shippers, and their servicing industries because this energy-efficiency improvement would help them substantially in meeting the State Council of China's recent mandate to reduce energy consumption 16% by 2015. The nationwide mandate dictates that China's nationally-owned industries will be required to reduce the amount of energy used per unit of industrial output by 16% by 2015. TDC is interested in providing the energy industry with STWA's AOT™ as a means to attain that goal.

"TDC has been aware of our technology for some time now and they have been tracking our progress. When our U.S. Department of Energy results were published they reached out to us because they know the enormous impact AOT™ can have on China's oil pipeline industry and the mandate to reduce its energy consumption by 16%," stated STWA Chairman and CEO, Mr. Cecil Bond Kyte. "We are in the desirable position of offering a solution that creates substantial economic benefits while also addressing the challenge to reduce energy consumption."

Mr. Bjørn Simundson, STWA Executive Director, Program Management/Operations said, "TDC approached us because they can see the writing on the wall. China is a net oil importer and the largest energy consumer in the world, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. TDC heard about our results with the U.S. Department of Energy and realized that our technology could potentially be the cornerstone for meeting these nationwide mandates for the entire Chinese oil industry. They are interested in using their established systems and networks to help us break into the Chinese market quickly and with legal protection on both sides of the Pacific Ocean. We are working together to form the go-forward plan and details at this time."

About AOT™

STWA's Applied Oil Technology™ (AOT™) allows pipeline operators to temporarily reduce the viscosity of the crude oil within their pipeline(s) to reduce the fluid-drag (also known as friction-loss) between the fluid and the pipeline. By reducing the friction loss, pipeline operators' pump systems require less energy to maintain a constant flow rate, thereby directly reducing daily operation costs.

About ELEKTRA™

ELEKTRA™ improves diesel engine efficiencies, and is designed for application in major industrial and manufacturing settings such as diesel-powered electricity generation and marine cargo transport.
