Date:4/23/2008

- Marks the first deployment of the system intended for hospitals and

industrial facilities -

NORTHBROOK, Ill., and ANKLESHWAR, India, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- PEAT International, Inc., ("PEAT") a global leader in plasma-based waste remediation solutions, announced today it has successfully commissioned its first PTDR-100 system located at the Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation near the Jayaben Modi Hospital in Ankleshwar, India. PTDR stands for Plasma Thermal Destruction and Recovery.

The 60-kilogram-per-hour (130 lb/hr) PTDR-100 system, developed to primarily treat biomedical waste and other industrial/universal waste streams, represents a first-of-its-kind system -- a permanent, fully self-contained platform for hospitals and industrial facilities.

"The PTDR-100 system is an ideal, turn-key solution for small to medium-sized waste generators looking for stable yet flexible on-site solutions to their waste management challenges," said Joseph Rosin, PEAT International Chairman. "Most importantly, the PTDR-100 matches environmental superiority with cost-competitiveness. It's efficient, it's environmentally benign and it's economical."

Using its proprietary PTDR technology, PEAT's environmentally clean process utilizes plasma torches to convert waste into a synthetic gas, comprised mainly of Carbon monoxide and Hydrogen which is a valuable source of Alternative Energy and can be used for electricity and/or hot water generation and other useful end-products. The PTDR-100 system comes equipped with a 100-kW plasma heating system.

The entire system, which can be generally be operated by just one control-panel operator, occupies just 50 square meters (under 550 square feet), sitting on two skids and standing just 4.5 meters (under 15 feet) high. There is no secondary pollution, just usable end-products generated: all feedstock is 100% waste diversion, totally eliminating the need for landfill di
