InEnTec Medical Services LLC Cancels Permits to Build a Waste Recycle and Power Production Facility Near Red Bluff, California
Date:6/13/2008

BEND, Ore., June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- InEnTec Medical Services LLC, a subsidiary of InEnTec LLC, today announced its plans to cancel its project to construct a Plasma Enhanced Melter ("PEMTM) and power generation facility near the city of Red Bluff in Tehama County, California. The facility would have recycled medical waste and other non-hazardous waste materials into clean electric energy. Citing changing business strategies and market conditions, the company will focus its efforts on advancing several other regional opportunities in the United States to bring environmentally friendly and cost-effective solutions to the problems of waste disposal and the need for clean fuels and energy.

"We are disappointed that Tehama County will not have the opportunity to establish itself as a leader in bringing an environmentally sound solution to the disposal of medical waste," said Jeff Surma, President and Chief Executive Officer of InEnTec LLC. "When our company started this project over three years ago, our focus was on developing smaller scale systems geared toward niche waste streams such as medical waste. Since that time we have evolved our technology to a scale that now makes economic sense for all waste streams, including municipal solid waste, or everyday trash. It is our firm belief and our hope that someday all communities, including Tehama County, will use technologies such as ours to reuse these waste materials to produce other products such as ethanol or methanol, which would be more environmentally responsible than stockpiling our garbage in landfills," Surma said. "We'd like to thank the Tehama County Planning Commission and the staff of the Tehama County Air Pollution Control District for their professionalism and courtesy throughout the process, and we look forward to the possibility of doing business in Tehama County in the future."

InEnTec Medical Services currently has both a land use permit issued by the Tehama County Planning Commission and an air permit issued by the Tehama County Air Pollution Control District. The company has sent a letter to County officials cancelling both permits.

"We realize that the best way to help meet our country's ever-growing need for improved environmental solutions and alternative fuels is to focus on providing communities with the most sophisticated yet safe and clean solutions available," noted Gary Cook, Chairman of InEnTec. "We are continuing to identify additional opportunities across the U.S. and in other countries to provide commercially viable and environmentally friendly solutions to help solve the problem of waste accumulation and the need for clean renewable energy."

InEnTec LLC (formerly Integrated Environmental Technologies LLC) was formed by scientists from MIT, Battelle, and GE. Through its proprietary gasification system, the Plasma Enhanced Melter(TM), InEnTec can transform municipal (household), commercial, medical, and most industrial and hazardous wastes into clean renewable products, such as ethanol, methanol, syngas and hydrogen, with minimal environmental impact and low costs. InEnTec's systems meet all environmental standards and come closer to 100% recycling of waste than any other such commercially available technology.
