Thermal Energy Resumes THERMALONOx'TM' Development

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 28, 2005) -

Dr. Raymond Belanger to head up renewed research and development program

Thermal Energy International Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TMG) (www.thermalenergy.com) is pleased to announce it is resuming work on developing its patented THERMALONOx™ technology as a cost-effective solution for reducing nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from coal-fired electric generating units and large industrial boilers.

Thermal Energy has appointed Dr. Raymond Belanger, as Chief Scientist, to head up its renewed THERMALONOx™ research and development program. Dr. Belanger has a strong background in chemical analysis and an extensive career in alternative and sustainable energy research and development. He possesses a wealth of practical knowledge of phosphorous and nitrogen compounds, and the associated chemistry, all fundamental to the success of THERMALONOx™.

"I look forward to this exciting opportunity to demonstrate the commercial viability of THERMALONOx™ as an economical solution to reduce NOx emissions from coal-fired power stations and other industrial sources," said Dr. Belanger. Work is commencing immediately.

Dr. Belanger comes to Thermal Energy from a British Columbia-based fuel cell technology company where he was in charge of the research and development division for the past five years. His research focused on all the company's R&D into customized fuel cell modules and hydrogen storage. He received his PhD in physical chemistry at the University of Waterloo in 1996 where his thesis examined chemical reactions involving NOx and carbon oxides on "metal-oxygen clusters".

Dr. Belanger will lead the THERMALONOx™ work under the guidance of Robert Triebe, Thermal Energy's Lead Project Development Engineer. Mr. Triebe is an original inventor and patentee of the THERMALONOx™ technology and his participation will ensure that our R&D efforts are conducted most effectively and efficiently.

"I am pleased to welcome Ray Belanger to Thermal Energy to take the lead on developing THERMALONOx™, which we continue to view as an important addition to the Company's portfolio of energy recovery and air compliance solutions," said Thermal Energy President and CEO Tim Angus. "Under Ray's expertise and guidance, the THERMALONOx™ work will proceed in a manner which complements our priority focus on maximizing the immediate opportunities in the market for our FLU-ACE® waste heat recovery systems."
