TurboSonic Receives US$4 Million Order for New 'Green' VOC Technology

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 16, 2009) - TURBOSONIC TECHNOLOGIES, INC. (OTCBB:TSTA), a leading provider of clean air technologies, today announced the receipt of a US $4 million order from Uniboard for its Moncure, NC new medium density fiberboard (MDF) facility. Uniboard is a subsidiary of the Pfleiderer Group, a German conglomerate with 22 engineered wood plants worldwide. Completion of the contract is scheduled for September 2009.

The contract is for the design, supply and installation of patent-pending Catalytic Gas Treatment (CGT) technology for control of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), primarily formaldehyde and methanol, from a drying process. TurboSonic is working with ProCD Groupe Conseil, who co-developed the CGT technology with Uniboard. Quebec-based ProCD is an engineering firm specializing in the development of industrial processes. Uniboard is a leading fiberboard, particleboard and melamine manufacturer who already has similar CGT units in operation in two of its plants.

Rather than utilizing traditional thermal destruction technologies utilizing costly natural gas to thermally oxidize formaldehyde and other VOCs, generating large amounts of greenhouse gases, the patent-pending CGT technology utilizes an environmentally friendly catalytic process to destroy VOCs without the production of harmful, combustion-related greenhouse gases (GHGs) and smog-producing nitrogen oxides.

Edward Spink, TurboSonic CEO, noted, "Given the US EPA's recent pronouncement that CO2 is a major hazard to public health and welfare, the timing of the installation of this technology couldn't be better. Not only does it eliminate combustion-related GHG emissions, but also we believe that these installations will qualify for carbon credits under the proposed US cap and trade regulations. When combined with the return on investment created from fuel savings, we believe the payback on CGT projects in wood products and many other industries requiring VOC control will be very attractive. In contrast to carbon sequestration, which typically focuses on the capture, use, or storage of CO2, this CGT technology avoids CO2 creation in the first place, which is a much more desirable, cost-effective solution."

TurboSonic Technologies (www.turbosonic.com) designs and markets air pollution control technologies to industrial customers worldwide. Its products help companies in the Cement and Mineral Processing, Ethanol, Metals & Mining, Petrochemicals, Power Generation, Pulp & Paper, Waste Incineration, and Wood Products industries meet the strictest emissions regulations, improve performance and reduce operating costs.
