Verdant Technology Corporation Announces Global Patent Protection on EnviroTank System

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 19, 2007) - Verdant Technology Corporation (PINKSHEETS: VTHC) announces changes in patent-pending status for EnviroTank technology.

The EnviroTank system, a crude oil/sludge recovery unit and tank cleaning system for the global petroleum storage market filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in June of 2006, has now been further protected by filing international applications for patent with existing treaty groups covering specific blocks of the international community and with several individual countries not presently covered under treaty agreement.

Patent applications were filed with the PCT, the GCC, and the countries of Venezuela, Argentina, Aruba, Iran and Libya.

The PCT covers 133 members of the States by International treaty, while the GCC is another patent-treaty organization that covers the countries of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, The UAE, Qatar and Bahrain.

The EnviroTank system is a major advancement in the conditioning of crude oil storage tanks. The system is designed to eliminate the need for personnel entry into the harsh environment inside of crude oil storage tanks, recovering and removing valuable crude trapped in sludge deposits that are prevalent in most tanks. Furthermore, the system allows tank owners to realize the value of the crude oil normally present in storage tanks reducing to a minimum the amount of disposal involved with a tank opening, and almost completely eliminating VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that are normally released from the tank into the atmosphere during vital inspection and cleaning procedures.

"With a worldwide market approaching $1 Billion, EnviroTank's proprietary system is poised to create great interest with tank owners due to its ability to significantly reduce maintenance costs and increase tank efficiency, while at the same time decreasing the environmental impact of the process and creating a safer endeavor for personnel working in and around the tank," said David J Curd, CEO of Verdant Technology Corporation. "With EnviroTank's unique technology and processes we expect this subsidiary to develop as the industry leader in the global tank cleaning market."
