Syngas International Corp. (OTC BB: SYNI) -- Alterative Energy Big Winner in State of Union Address

Hydrogen Technologies Biggest Winner in New Energy Funding Increases

WASHINGTON, DC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 8, 2006 -- Syngas International Corp. (OTC BB: SYNI). In his State of the Union Address on January 31, 2006, the president discussed some of the most important energy related issues facing the nation. The Address, which historically sets forth the President's plan of action for the fiscal year, heavily discussed America's dependence on oil acknowledging that alterative fuel sources will be needed in the future.

"Keeping America competitive requires affordable energy. And here we have a serious problem: America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world. The best way to break this addiction is through technology," announced President Bush.

Congress approved a 22 percent increase in clean-energy research funding. The largest increases in the budget are intended for clean coal and hydrogen technologies. More than fifty percent of US electric supply currently is derived from coal.

An important coal-related amendment was included in legislation during the final days of the 109th Congress' first session, which ends imminently. Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia offered an amendment to the Defense Authorization Bill which requires that a study be done on the benefits of converting coal to liquid fuels by the Department of Defense. The Byrd amendment is a clear demonstration that the United States Government is continuing to seek alternative sources of fuel, and that the gasification processes will be a vital part of the solution to the current energy needs. Syngas' advanced gasification and PyStR technology allow for the utilization of biomass feedstocks to produce hydrogen, synthetic gas and ethanol, as well as gasification of coal with zero net greenhouse gas emissions.

Last month, Syngas announce that it would be a key note presenter on February 13, 2006 at the Big Hydrogen Show co-hosted by the Canadian Hydrogen Association and EnergyInet to showcase and introduce to industry, government and academia its PyStR hydrogen production technology.
