VRTX expands into Pacific Islands

• Company welcomes new customers in Hawaii and Guam

SCHERTZ, TX, Oct. 10, 2008 -- VRTX Technologies, a chemical-free water treatment company that specializes in cooling towers and evaporative condensers, is now providing water treatment to some familiar locations in Hawaii and Guam.

Hawaii's state capitol building in downtown Honolulu needed a non-chemical device to treat their system due to the close proximity of the Vietnam and Korean War Memorial located on the west end of the capitol grounds. VRTX was installed to save water and maintain a safe environment for visitors. Within months, the system increased its cycles of concentration from 2.1 to four, saving them an estimated 2.5 million gallons of water annually.

The Pacific Islands Club, the largest resort in Guam, is switching from an air-cooled system to a water-cooled system. VRTX has signed on to provide non-chemical cooling water treatment. The resort specifically chose VRTX over chemically treating their system to save water.

Since Guam has poor water quality, cooling systems usually operate at low cycles of concentration. VRTX is an efficient way for properties like The Pacific Islands Club to save water and cut rising chemical costs.

"We look forward to expanding even farther into the Pacific region," said David Nicholas, VRTX Chief Executive Officer. "Because water and chemical costs continue to rise, especially in island territories, we are seeing an increased demand for non-chemical options in cooling towers and evaporative condensers."

The new locations add to the more than 500 worldwide customers saving over one billion gallons of water annually with environmentally-friendly water treatment.
