W2 Modifies the SunFilter 1 Reactor to Operate 300% More Efficiently on New Algae Strain

GUELPH, ON--(Marketwire - March 10, 2011) - W2 Energy, Inc., a clean energy company (www.w2energy.com) (PINKSHEETS: WTWO), is pleased to announce that as of March 1, it has converted the SunFilter 1 algae reactor to use Euglena Gracilis, a more efficient strain of algae.

The Euglena Gracilis strain of algae grows in fresh water rather than saltwater, and can sequester 40% of the carbon dioxide dissolved in the water. The previously utilized algae produced a 10% return. This higher concentration allows W2 Energy to immediately begin building a complete power production system using the NT Plasmatron.

The new NT Plasmatron system will convert hydrocarbon feedstocks such as natural gas, coal and garbage into syngas. The SteamRay rotary engine will burn the syngas and make electricity. The SunFilter 1 algae reactor will convert the flue gas from the SteamRay into algae, thereby sequestering the greenhouse gases normally associated with hydrocarbon-based power production.

"With our new NT Plasmatron power generation system and the new SunFilter 1, W2 Energy will prove that energy-efficient and environmentally friendly power production is not only possible, it's happening today," says Mike McLaren, President and CEO of W2 Energy. "We will be able to make clean electricity from any fuel, including coal. That is great for us and great for the North American economy."

W2 Energy trades in the United States on the OTC market under the symbol "WTWO."
