INTEGRATED ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES, LTD. PROVIDES UPDATE ON MARKETING OF EXCELYTE™ TO ENERGY INDUSTRY

Press

Company Continues to Make Progress in Western U.S.

LITTLE RIVER, S.C., April 10, 2014 – Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd. (OTCBB: IEVM) today released the following statement from President and Chief Executive Officer David R. LaVance:

“In the last few months, the company has made steady progress with its market strategy for our EcoTreatments™ products, specifically in the energy industry. The expansion of the oil and gas industry in western states offers the most significant opportunity for us right now, particularly in the state of Utah. Support for smart technologies and new methods for drilling and water processing has grown in the first quarter of 2014, in large part due to the ongoing drought conditions and threats to the nation’s water supply. In a column for The Huffington Post, I shared my thoughts on some of the pressing issues and possible solutions for the water crisis.

We have been briefing local and state officials at the highest levels on our unique Excelyte™ product and have discussed with them the need to embrace a new approach to public-private partnerships to protect the environment. The conversations have been positive and reinforce our belief that clean, non-toxic biocides will soon become a standard in well maintenance and oil and gas production. Our team continues to work on creating additional avenues to expand the market’s awareness as to the benefits of using Excelyte as a biocide in oil and gas applications.

In the past quarter, IET has worked with exploration and production companies in Utah operating in the Uinta Basin to determine the efficacy of Excelyte in well maintenance applications and in the treatment of processed water. In the Uinta Basin, those companies have identified two significant problems in existing wells: persistence of bacteria and a proliferation of hydrogen sulfide. We estimate that there are approximately 5,000 additional wells in the Uinta Basin that would benefit from the regular use of Excelyte as part of a well maintenance program.

IET estimates the market potential for a combination biocide and hydrogen sulfide scavenger used in well maintenance, well drilling and oil and gas production applications to exceed $50 million annually in Utah alone, and nationwide potential that could exceed $2.5 billion annually. The growing concerns for conservation of water are causing oilfield operations to recycle water rather than to source new water for well drilling and oil and gas production operations. This practice has a tendency to lead to cross-contamination of wells with bacteria – which may increase the presence of bacteria and hydrogen sulfide, creating a large opportunity for a non-toxic, effective biocide and hydrogen sulfide scavenger such as Excelyte that can minimize any cross-contamination issues related to bacteria.”

Hospital Disinfectant Gaining Ground as Oil & Gas Water Treatment Solution

As covered by www.rigzone.com

A chemical product designed to kill bacteria in hospitals is gaining traction in the oil and gas industry as a solution for treating hydraulic fracturing water.

Excelyte, which has been successfully tested on flowback water from the Piceance and Marcellus shale basins, is being tested in eastern Utah’s Uintah Basin for use in hydraulic fracturing, well maintenance and treatment of flowback water, said Integrated Environmental Technologies (IET) CEO David LaVance in an interview with Rigzone.

The water treatment solution is similar to bleach in the sense that chlorine is the active ingredient, but unlike bleach, which is caustic with a high alkaline content, Excelyte is Ph-neutral and benign to humans. However, the product is deadly to aerobic and anaerobic bacteria in water used in hydraulic fracturing. Excelyte is also effective in killing viruses, and the product has yet been tested on a bacteria it couldn’t kill, including anthrax, said LaVance. Excelyte also is non-toxic and undetectable 90 days after use.

Hypochlorous acid, the main active ingredient in Excelyte, has been known for decades as an effective biocide, first being identified as one of the agents used in the body to kill pathogens such as bacteria and viruses in the body. The chlorine part of the molecule is primarily responsible for the biocidal action, with the remainder of the molecule acting as an oxidizing agent, which has a high affinity for the sulfur in hydrogen sulfide. The sulfur precipitates out of the solution as it oxidizes.

IET has devised a method to manufacture the product efficiently and reliably, so it can be used in many applications, ranging from hospital disinfection and food processing to use in oil and gas.

“We did not have the useful product until we determined how to make the product in a Ph-neutral way,” said LaVance.

Excelyte is ideal in that it will not impact the effectiveness of hydraulic fracturing fluid or proppants, said LaVance. It also is not corrosive to machinery, and is effective in removing deadly hydrogen sulfide.

The company was established a decade ago to develop Excelyte, originally intended for use in hospitals. The product’s effectiveness in killing bacteria in hospital settings and on fruits and vegetables eventually led to the product’s migration into oil and gas, LaVance explained. The product now has approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use in hospital disinfection, food processing, veterinary practices and oil and gas.

Benchmark Performance Group held the license for several years, and did its own testing, along with introducing the product to other companies, primarily for hydraulic fracturing. Yates Petroleum was one of the original users of the producer for well maintenance. IET is working with about 10 companies in the oil and gas market, either in testing or in use.

The impact of hydraulic fracturing on water resources in terms of supply consumption and water quality has led to interest in a water treatment solution effective in killing bacteria without leaving toxic remains over a long period of time. Control of bacterial growth often is accomplished using biocides such as glutaraldehyde, particularly in multi-stage, high-volume hydraulic fracturing of shale, according to a case study presented at the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ International Symposium on Oilfield Chemistry in 2011.

A study of Excelyte’s use in the Marcellus shale play indicates that it does not persist in flowback water beyond a few days, and that the bacteria count stays at less than 10 cells/mL for up to 81 days after Excelyte’s application to slickwater fluid. The company has successfully deployed Excelyte on the Barnett, Haynesville, and Granite Wash shale regions following its initial deployment in the Marcellus, according to the paper.

Excelyte™ VET Approved for Use as a Disinfectant in Veterinary Clinics, Hospitals, Kennels and Animal Life Facilities

LITTLE RIVER, S.C., March 26, 2014 – Integrated Environmental Technologies Ltd. (OTCBB: IEVM), announced today that it received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to market a new Excelyte™ product called Excelyte VET – which can be used to prevent Canine distemper. Canine distemper is highly contagious, resistant to most disinfectants, and is the leading cause of infectious disease deaths in dogs worldwide.

The new product registration (EPA Registration #82341-4) also allows the company to market Excelyte VET to prevent the spread of Canine parvovirus and Bordetella bronchiseptica.

Canine distemper and Canine parvoviruses affect respiratory tracks and gastrointestinal and central nervous systems of dogs, causing vomiting, diarrhea and symptoms of encephalitis in the brain during later stages. Bordetella bronchiseptica bacteria, commonly known as “kennel cough”, severely affect the respiratory tracts of dogs and cats. Secondary infections and complications are common with each affliction, partly attributable to the immunosuppressive effects of the bacteria and viruses.

In collaboration with an independent third party, Integrated Environmental Technologies conducted the required testing at an independent EPA approved laboratory, the results of which showed that Excelyte VET was effective as a disinfection/antimicrobial product for use on non- porous hard surfaces in veterinary clinics and hospitals, kennels and animal life science facilities. Derived from naturally occurring salt minerals and water, Excelyte VET provides an environmentally responsible alternative product for use around dogs, cats and other animals. Because of its non-toxic nature, a facility that utilizes Excelyte VET can more efficiently disinfect the facility since Excelyte VET will not harm the animals located in the facility, as is the case with other toxic disinfectants commonly used.

David R. LaVance, President and Chief Executive Officer of Integrated Environmental Technologies, commented: “Excelyte VET is the newest offering under our EcoTreatmentsTM umbrella. There are more than 120,000 veterinary practices, hospitals and animal shelters in the United States that can greatly benefit from an effective, non-toxic solution. With the registration approval of Excelyte VET, we now have two EPA product registrations, with a combined total of sixteen kill claims, further establishing us as a leader in developing anolyte disinfecting solution produced through electrochemical activation.”

LATHAM, N.Y. — David R. LaVance, president and CEO of Integrated Environmental Technologies, is an expert in hydraulic fracturing and what it takes to disinfect many types of wastewater, including fracking wastewater.

IET has created a product called Excelyte™ for disinfecting large quantities of water from hydraulic fracturing sites.

Water Technology caught up with LaVance to discuss the issue of hydraulic fracturing in the United States today, why it is so controversial, the issues with fracking wastewater and how those issues can be resolved.

“The controversy centers on the idea that while we need fracking…at the same time, the method that’s deployed is one where we use a lot of water,” said LaVance. “The concern is that the water will eventually leak into the water tables.”

Added LaVance, “Everyone has this interest, in fact we have both interests: We have interests in obtaining the energy and we have interest in protecting our water supply. So the controversy is how do we do it, and are the chemicals currently being used in the fracking process toxic or dangerous to the environment. And that’s a legitimate controversy.”

Company to Market its Products, Including its Excelyte™ and EcaFlo™ Products, Under the EcoTreatments™ Brand Name

LITTLE RIVER, S.C., March 6, 2014

Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd. (“IET” or the “Company”) (OTC Bulletin Board: IEVM), announced today the launch of a new brand name, EcoTreatments™, which it will utilize in selling all of its products. The Company’s Excelyte™ solutions and EcoFlo™ equipment will now be marketed under the EcoTreatments™ umbrella. As the first step in this new marketing initiative, the Company has launched its digital presence with a new corporate and product website at www.ecotreatments.com, and social media presence at Facebook, Twitter and Linked In. This new website replaces our old websites www.ietltd.net and www.ietecaflo.com.

The Company’s signature EcoTreatments™ product is Excelyte™ – a non-toxic, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved disinfectant produced from hypochlorous acid, a naturally-occurring molecule synthesized to have a 99.9999% kill rate of bacteria and viruses. There are three primary, eco-friendly uses for Excelyte™:

  • Reduce fracking pollution: Fracking is controversial but there’s no debating the fact that it’s expanding every day. There are approximately 20,000 new wells fracked every year. Regardless of which political party is running Washington, D.C., that’s not changing anytime soon. That said, the best thing to do for the environment is perfect the process through smart technology. Excelyte™ effectively disinfects the water in the fracking process and helps prevent groundwater contamination. Unlike any other fracking solution, Excelyte™ cleans and protects oil equipment from corrosion, creates a safer work environment by targeting and eliminating hydrogen sulfide (a leading cause of gas inhalation deaths among oil/gas workers), leaves no lasting impact on the environment and is undetectable 90 days after use.
  • Eradicate hospital bacterial outbreaks: Superbugs and treatment-resistant bacteria have been spreading across the nation. The average hospital struggles with 348 cases of hospital-acquired infection every year. Excelyte™ addresses this growing issue by not only killing the bacteria present, but also eliminating the possibility of mutation that leads to resistance. The EPA has classified Excelyte™ as a tuberculocidal hospital disinfectant effective against MRSA, Pseudomonas, HIV, H1N1, Salmonella, E. coli, Klebsiella, Listeria, VRE and C. diff spores on contaminated, hard, non-porous surfaces.
  • Protect America’s food supply from causing illness: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 6 American get sick from foodborne illnesses every year. Bacteria and other pathogens in food production can be controlled through the use of Excelyte™ to disinfect and sanitize meat, poultry, vegetable and diary production facilities as well as food preparation areas and equipment. Excelyte™, in ice form, can also be used to pack fresh foods and extend the shelf life of meats, seafood and vegetables.

David R. LaVance, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented “EcoTreatments™ is a name that represents the environmental benefits our products can have in a variety of complex and critical industries. We have been developing products like Excelyte™ for more than a decade to enhance the safety and quality of America’s water through smart, non-toxic and biodegradable solutions. The new direction helps separate our environmentally-friendly offerings from competitors that don’t meet the standards our healthcare system and energy industry demand. The Company’s new branded marketing efforts and the re-design of our corporate website will communicate our value proposition in the marketplace to our customers, partners and investors.”

INTEGRATED ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES, LTD. PROVIDES REVIEW OF 2013 CORPORATE ACTIVITIES

Press

Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer Discusses Company’s Achievements for 2013 and Provides Overview of the Company’s Business Strategy for 2014

Little River, SC (January 28, 2014)

Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd.(OTC Bulletin Board: IEVM), announced today that it posted a letter from David R. LaVance, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, on the Company’s website, www.ecotreatments.com, which provides a review of the Company’s 2013 corporate activities and an overview of the Company’s business strategy for 2014. The contents of that letter are provided below:

Dear Fellow Stockholder:

In 2013, IET made solid progress towards its goal of becoming an independent and self-supporting company. We adopted a strategy focused on three market opportunities. One of those opportunities gained significant momentum in 2013. The other two opportunities experienced slower growth, mostly because of a lack of market awareness due to the limited resources available during the year.

Oil and Gas

We have identified the oil and gas market as a market of great potential. During 2013, we focused on pursuing sales relationships in that market. As a result, we have started delivering Excelyte™ on a regular basis to customers in Utah. As one can imagine, the introduction of “new anything” that has a short history and has not been regularly used requires extensive testing and trials. The oil and gas operators and owners are a conservative group who make big bets on their financial future each day. They do not want to inadvertently impact their drilling opportunities by introducing harmful chemicals into the wells.

Accordingly, we have gone through extensive testing regimens at prospective customers’ sites. Those testing results have been positive, and have shown the efficacy of the product. As we have previously disclosed, Excelyte™ is non-toxic and effective as a biocide and hydrogen sulfide scavenger in the hydraulic fracturing and other water-intensive activities in oil and gas production, and there is no evidence that Excelyte™ harms wells or drilling equipment or other fracking chemicals.

We have had ongoing discussions with several oil and gas producers who are now interested in becoming customers. We also enhance our production capability of Excelyte™ through a significant purchase of EcaFlo™ equipment to manufacture Excelyte™. The Company is now able to establish manufacturing depots to supply Excelyte™ in the Utah and other oil basins in which we are targeting. We expect the oil and gas market to become our lead market for Excelyte™. Because the volume of product required by oil producers is significant, we believe this market opportunity has more potential than our other market opportunities. Our expectation is that IET will have secured contracts for delivery of Excelyte™ in a second basin in 2014 and we will continue to expand our sales efforts to additional basins as our business grows.

In each basin we serve, IET will establish a fluids production facility to be staffed with a lead salesman (GM), supported by a sales engineer who will troubleshoot issues with customers and production technicians. Delivery of Excelyte™ will be done via normal water hauling services. IET’s production facilities will be established in typical flex space and will likely start with 4-6 EcaFlo™ units. Because of the stand-alone nature of the production machines, up to 30 units can be set up in approximately 2,500 square feet of space. These manufacturing depots only require power and clean water, but no special sewerage or by-product disposal services. A facility containing six of our four cell Ecaflo™ units can produce approximately 7,200 gallons of product daily. We believe that as business volume increases in each basin, the potential market for such basins could easily exceed ten times that amount on a daily basis over the near term.

Pricing for product depends on usage volumes. Although we are frequently asked questions about pricing, at this time we are not publishing rate data, as it is a highly competitive environment. However, one would expect a standard price per gallon to emerge during the coming year as usage becomes standardized. The Company is developing additional products, with varying concentrations of chlorine and lower amounts of salt, that it intends to introduce as product differentiators. This should also allow a tiered pricing model.

Heathcare

We previously reported that a second significant market lies in the disinfection of hospitals, nursing homes and clinics. During 2013, we expanded our EPA label to include more pathogens, especially C. difficile spores, the most common carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and Tuberculosis. That label expansion qualifies our product as usable to healthcare facilities, because it now meets OSHA standards that protect healthcare workers. We have also worked with the Carson-Tahoe Regional Medical Center, in Carson City, Nevada, to complete a field test demonstrating the efficacy of the product in actual hospital conditions. The results of that trial indicate Excelyte™ is effective in reducing and eliminating labeled pathogens in hospital rooms. A paper is expected to be published in spring 2014 by Carson-Tahoe Regional Medical Center indicating the findings in the study.

For hospital applications, trial data is paramount in making sales. We have undertaken additional testing to show efficacy with additional species of bacteria, and we have worked extensively on new and effective application methods. One of those systems is now being reviewed by the EPA for use in healthcare settings. If approved, this system will allow users to apply the product by means other than spraying and wiping, producing a more efficient delivery system to “kill” the harmful germs responsible for the plague of hospital-borne deaths and diseases. IET is now seeking additional hospital testing sites to gather more usage data to support the data collected at Carson-Tahoe Regional Medical Center. We also are in discussions with two potential partners for distribution into hospitals.

Food Production

In the food production market, we continue our selling efforts into the dairy marketplace in Utah and Idaho and have located a prospective distributor for California to help establish the Excelyte™ brand, operate our production depots and distribute product into dairies in that state. This relationship brings the potential of expansion into other dairy regions beyond the few markets we currently serve. IET believes the dairy market, if fully developed, can be a valuable market and can be better penetrated by established dairy distributors with pre-existing relationships in the dairy businesses. Our approach will be to contract with distributors already selling into the dairy market and then to other food production markets.

Focus for 2014

IET is focusing on several important objectives for the coming year:

  1. Increasing our presence in the oil and gas by establishing a production facility in at least one additional basin and expanding sales in our first territory, Utah. We intend to recruit a general manager to oversee the efforts in oil and gas, and are keen on establishing this business as a self-supporting division professionally managed and poised to expand throughout the other western states.
  2. Finalizing the trials to support sales in healthcare and initiating sales via distributors in the healthcare market.
  3. Expanding the food production offering by engaging distributors now supplying the dairies in the large dairy states, beginning in California and the other western states.

We believe these are reasonable mileposts for a developing company that is competing in these markets. 2013 was a year of development and we expect 2014 to be one of growth. As that growth accelerates, the Company will have more resources to deploy, including the resources necessary to improve communications with investors, publish marketing materials and inform the marketplace of the tremendous advantages that the Excelyte™ product delivers.

As 2014 begins, we want to express our appreciation to our stakeholders, including stockholders, customers and employees. We look forward to a productive year in 2014.

Sincerely,
David R. LaVance

Western Water First in US to Use New Fracking Solution

Press

Covered by www.environmentalleader.com

Water supplier Western Water is the first in the US to use Integrated Environmental Technologies’ fracking disinfectant solution designed to leave no lasting impact on the environment and create a safer workplace by eliminating hydrogen sulfide, the leading cause of gas inhalation deaths among oil and gas workers.

The product is undetectable 90 days after use, EPA approved and cleans and protects oil equipment from corrosion, the company says.

The EPA has approved its use for frack water, sour wells, produced waters, water flood injection water and treatment of oil and gas transmission lines.

Limited available water resources, drought and increasing water-use demands from all segments of the economy is driving water management issues to the forefront of US oil and gas operations’ considerations and accounts for $8 billion in spending for water services in US fracking regions, according to a report from IHS.

An increasing number of oil and gas operations are reusing water. The practice is a boon to water companies that are helping drillers use less freshwater and dispose of less wastewater.

For instance, Fasken Oil and Ranch in West Texas now uses 90 percent recycled water for hydraulic fracturing, putting the company 10 percent away from its goal of not using any freshwater for fracking.

Recycling permits applications in Texas rose from less than two a year in 2011 to 30 approved in fiscal year 2012. The spike in requests led the Texas Railroad Commission, which oversees oil and gas operations, to change the rules in March, eliminating the need for drillers to get a permit if they recycle on their own lease or on a third-party’s property.

Company Commences Delivery of Excelyte™ on Customer Sales Order, Expands Facility and Excelyte™ Production Capacity in Utah and Continues Excelyte™ Testing with Potential Customers

Little River, SC (October 1, 2013)

Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd.(OTC Bulletin Board: IEVM), today announced that it commenced delivery of Excelyte™ to a water services company that utilizes Excelyte™ as a biocide in the treatment of oil and gas production water. For the past several months this water services company, together with the oil production company purchasing the treated water from the water services company, as well as the oil service company providing drilling services to the production company, have tested the efficacy of Excelyte™ in the treatment of oil and gas production water. These test results showed that the production water treated with Excelyte™ was bacteria free and had a higher viscosity profile than production water treated with chlorine. The viscosity of the treated water is an important characteristic since it needs to be at a great enough level to initiate and propagate hydraulic fracture as well as to carry sand or other proppants into those fractures to enhance the production of oil and gas. By using Excelyte™, the water services company is now treating production water and reselling the water to oil and gas production companies as opposed to collecting and disposing the production water. Based on the test results, the water services company placed a sales order with IET to provide Excelyte™ to treat production water to be sold by the water services company to a producer for a specified frack. The Company is scheduled to deliver Excelyte™ to the water services company on a weekly basis over the next five month period, the estimated time required for the frack job to be completed.

The Company also continues to expand its operational capabilities in the Uinta Basin in Utah. The Company has increased the size of the facility and the number of its proprietary Ecaflo™ machines and related equipment at the Uinta facility. The Company is currently capable of producing approximately 100,000 gallons of Excelyte™ per month at the Uinta facility.

Excelyte™continues to be tested by potential customers, which include both production and water service companies, as a treatment to eliminate bacteria and hydrogen sulfide present in produced water and in production wells. These testing protocols are specific to each well site due to the significant differences in bacteria and other minerals that can exist in the production water at each site. The Company believes that Excelyte™ is: a) an effective biocide that eliminates bacteria in production water; b) a better biocide as compared to chlorine and bleach since production water treated with Excelyte™ remains bacteria free for longer periods of time requiring less frequent treatments; c) less corrosive to oil and gas production equipment, reducing maintenance issues associated with more corrosive chemicals; and d) safer to use by reducing potential chemical related injuries. The Company continues to target production companies as its main customer focus.

David LaVance, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented that “This is an important step in the development of our oil and gas business. The testing performed showed not only that Excelyte™ is an effective biocide in oil and gas applications but that it was a better alternative than chlorine in treating production water for resale to oil and gas production companies. With the ever growing water demand for oil and gas production and the resulting shortage of fresh water in many oil and gas drilling areas, we believe that the treatment and recycling of production water will continue to grow in importance and that Excelyte™ is the ideal biocide to meet the needs of producers – it is effective in eliminating bacteria, it is safer for the worker and less corrosive to production equipment than other biocides such as bleach and chlorine and it is ultimately less costly than competing products.”

The Company’s new EPA-approved label incorporates kill claims for certain high risk pathogens that pose a significant risk in healthcare facilities and pathogens that present significant problems in produce, livestock and food processing facilities that are inspected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (the “USDA”).

The new kill claims that relate to healthcare facilities include Klebsiella pneumonia carbapenemase (KPC) and New Delhi Metallo-Beta Lactamase (NDM), Clostridium difficile spores (C. diff), Mycobacterium bovis (Tuberculosis), Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus (VRE) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The Company believes that it is the only manufacturer of Anolyte disinfecting solution with an EPA-approved label that includes kill claims for KPC, NDM, C. diff spores, Tuberculosis and HIV.

KPC and NDM, the two most common types of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), were recently cited in a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the “CDC”) Health Advisory, due to each bacteria’s high level of drug resistance, the mortality rate for humans that become infected with the bacteria and the increase in cases involving each bacteria (see the CDC Health Advisory at http://www.bt.cdc.gov/HAN/han00341.asp). C. diff is also a major problem for healthcare facilities due to its resistance to multiple antibiotics and, in its spore form, its resistance to routine disinfection products.

Both CRE and C. diff are hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) that most commonly occur in healthcare settings in patients who are receiving treatment for other conditions and who are taking long courses of certain antibiotics. The rates of infection for both CRE and C. diff increase in direct proportion to the length of a patient’s stay at a healthcare facility. Since CRE bacteria and C. diff are highly resistant to multiple drugs, preventing the spread of those bacteria has become a focal point requiring healthcare providers to establish new disinfecting protocols that incorporate the use of effective disinfectants such as Excelyte™.

The new kill claims related to USDA inspected produce, livestock and food processing facilities (fruits and vegetables, meat and poultry, and dairy and egg farms and processing facilities) inspected by the USDA include Listeria and E. coli. Both Listeria and E. coli continue to be prevalent pathogens causing food poisoning in humans. The amended EPA-approved label related to Listeria and E. coli permits Excelyte™ to be applied on surfaces without requiring a rinse and also permits Excelyte™ to be applied as a sanitizer. When used as a sanitizer, Excelyte™ can be diluted to a lower concentration. Both the no rinse and sanitizer permitted uses are very important in agriculture, livestock and food processing facilities where larger volumes of disinfecting and sanitizing solution are required to cover the surface area.

The Company’s new EPA-approved label will continue to include kill claims for Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella entercia, Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Swine Flu Virus (H1N1). Each of these bacteria was previously approved by the EPA for inclusion on the Company’s label for its Anolyte disinfecting solution.

David LaVance, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented that “Hospital acquired infections are a growing problem for healthcare facilities. Infections caused by bacteria such as CRE and C. diff have a significant impact on healthcare cost and with the growing antibiotic resistance of bacteria such as CRE and C. diff, the only long-term practical solution is prevention. Healthcare providers need to establish disinfection protocols that require the regular and rigorous treatment of their facilities in order to prevent the spread of bacteria that cause hospital acquired infections. The efficacy and non-toxic nature of Excelyte™ make it an ideal product for a healthcare facility in eliminating bacteria that cause hospital acquired infections. Excelyte™ is effective, can be applied in spray format and can completely cover a facility without compromising the health of the staff or patients.”
