TurboSonic Awarded US$1.25 Million Air Pollution Control Contract by International Cement Producer

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 1, 2011) - TurboSonic Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:TSTA), a global provider of clean air technologies, today announced that it has been awarded a US$1.25 million contract for the design and supply of equipment for abatement of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) for a US cement plant. This is the 18th contract for supply of TurboSonic's technologies to this leading cement producer since 2004. Equipment is scheduled for delivery in our next fiscal year commencing July 1, 2011.

Reduction of SO2, NOx and mercury emissions is mandated under the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for the Portland Cement Manufacturing Industry, commonly referred to as the Portland Cement Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) regulation. This rule was enacted in November 2010 and coincides with a worldwide concern regarding the harmful health effects and negative environmental impact of these hazardous air pollutants.

This contract is for TurboSonic's TurboSorb Semi-Dry Absorption (SDA) and Turbotak ammonia injection technologies for NOx control. SDA technology uses hydrated lime slurry for high efficiency removal of acid gases including SO2, hydrogen chloride, and mercury in industries worldwide including Cement, Industrial Power Generation and Waste-to-Energy. This technology is noteworthy in that all sprayed liquid is evaporated, resulting in no wastewater by product to be treated or discharged. TurboSorb SDA and ammonia injection technologies rely on TurboSonic's patented Turbotak spray atomization technology for generation of ultra-fine droplets.

Edward Spink, TurboSonic CEO, expressed, "We are pleased to announce yet another repeat order from a large, multi-national corporation, consistent with our strategy of focusing on building long-term loyalty and growth through customer satisfaction. We are targeting increased penetration of our international markets with our patented SDA technology in addition to those markets affected by new US EPA regulations."
