Sokolov, Czech Republic, November 26, 2002 -- SOKOFLOK s.r.o., a joint venture of French owned FLOERGER SNF S.A. and U.S. EASTMAN Chemical owned EASTMAN Sokolov a.s., Tuesday announced that it has entered into an agreement with LightStream Technologies, Inc., to serve as the Exclusive Technology Provider of LightStream's LS Series of advanced pulsed UV water disinfection machines in the Czech and Slovak Republics.

"LightStream's pulsed UV system provides many safety and performance advantages over conventional mercury UV disinfection systems," said Jiri Harastej, Manager, SOKOFLOK. "We are very excited to bring these advantages to our clients and look forward to a strong partnership."

Unlike conventional disinfection methods, LightStream's technology delivers powerful disinfection without the dangers of chemicals, mercury lamps or ozone gas that risk the safety of workers, the public and the environment. This is because LightStream does not use toxic mercury to produce UV light.

Rather, it produces the UV by means of short, ultra intensity pulses (up to 30 per second) of light through a single inert xenon flash lamp. LightStream also delivers unprecedented precision and disinfection performance through its patented Constant Optimum Dose methodology that conducts continuous sub-second performance analyses to deliver the exact UV dose specified for each application.

"We are thrilled to join forces with a company that is such a large player in the Czech and Slovak water and wastewater treatment market," said LightStream Vice Chairman R. Josh Lanier. "This alliance will allow SOKOFLOK to add the most advanced chemical- and mercury-free UV disinfection technology to their product line, while providing LightStream a valuable partner in quickly entering the Czech and Slovak market," he said.

LightStream's global Technology Provider network is unique to the environmental industry and is built on strong exclusive relationships with leading companies in their respective markets. In addition to market exclusivity, Technology Providers benefit from LightStream's full sales cycle marketing support, technical and service training, and attractive financing programs. The LightStream TP network will soon reach 40 countries.
