MONTCLAIR, NJ, Jan. 13, 2005 (MARKET WIRE) -- EC Power Inc., which is focused on acquiring and growing international companies with proprietary clean energy and environmental technologies, reported that its wastewater treatment subsidiary, FBC Technologies, has launched a new mobile wastewater digester designed to help smaller communities remove pollutants and meet their discharge requirements. The first MAG (Mobile Attached Growth) system is being installed at a wastewater treatment plant in Troy, New Hampshire to remove ammonia and is expected to be operational by the end of January.

According to the company, the new MAG system captures the power of its successful Bio2Bloc® system and applies it in a mobile treatment system. It operates on the principle of using a highly aerated biomass to quickly reduce organic pollutants and ammonia to acceptable discharge standards. The system, which is designed to be installed in tank-mounted modules, installs in a day and begins removing pollutants several days later.

Dave Long, president of FBC Technologies, based in LeRoy, New York, stated, "The MAG system was developed over the past 18 months and successfully tested in several wastewater treatment operations in Georgia. We expect high interest in it among the thousands of small communities nationwide who are struggling to meet increased restrictions on their wastewater discharges."

William E. Potter, Chairman and CEO of EC Power, added, "We continue to be excited about the prospects for FBC and its innovative product line. We expect the new MAG system will be a key contributor to helping the company achieve its goal of becoming one of the dominant suppliers to smaller wastewater treatment plants throughout North America."
