Thermal Energy Completes Start-Up of FLU-ACE'R' Project at CAMCO: Heat Recovery System for 'E-Coat' Paint Process Applicable to Multiple Industries

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 27, 2006) - Thermal Energy International Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TMG), the "Company," www.thermalenergy.com) is pleased to announce it has completed the start-up of its FLU-ACE® heat recovery and emission reduction system at CAMCO Inc. for Johnson Controls.

The $1.36 million system at the Montreal, Quebec appliance manufacturing facility was recently commissioned and has been recovering heat for the past two weeks, producing significant energy savings and emission reductions.

"We are pleased to have completed the start-up of our innovative FLU-ACE® installation in this new market sector," said Thermal Energy president and CEO Tim Angus. "This implementation of FLU-ACE® technology for CAMCO's paint process opens tremendous opportunities for us in the automotive and other manufacturing sectors."

"E-Coat" also known as electrocoating, electrodeposition coating, or electrophoresis coating, uses electric current to bond paint to metal and other composite surfaces and large amounts of energy for heating and cooling processes. To date, few plants have very solutions to optimize energy consumption in order to reduce variable operating costs.

"We will continue to monitor the system's performance and conduct ongoing monitoring of the energy and emission reduction capabilities of this showcase system and look forward to reporting further information to our shareholders and showcasing our abilities on these types of processes to other prospective clients," said Mr. Angus.
