CARLSBAD, CA, Dec. 6, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Robert Brehm, CEO of U.S. Microbics Inc. (BUGS), announced today that the company has formed Worldwide Water Systems Inc. in a joint venture with C. TradeUsa Inc., a water systems integrator and international project development firm, to provide pure drinking water to people in Third World countries.

The companies will be using the PureSafe Water Station technology supplied by WaterChef Inc., a water purification equipment vendor, as well as the engineering and project management services of C. Trade Group and Sub-Surface Waste Management of Delaware Inc. (SSWM), a unit of U.S. Microbics.

Worldwide Water Systems will purchase equipment from WaterChef and use engineering services of SSWM to deploy the water machines on a lease-buy basis with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and companies which will employ the local labor force.

The PureSafe Water Station is a self-contained, six-stage water purification system, which produces up to 15,000 gallons per day of clean, healthy water from any source. It destroys all living pathogens and handles a broad range of organic and inorganic water contaminants, producing pure water at a very low cost per gallon.

C. TradeUsa Inc. has over 10 years' successful experience in initiating and operating build, operate and transfer (BOT) projects in China and Honduras, and will utilize this experience to assure a successful launch in the potentially lucrative Latin America market. The company also has existing distribution networks in Bangladesh, Venezuela, Greece and Colombia, and believes these to be fertile markets for the sale of water.

C. TradeUsa CEO Nick Kontonicolas said, "We are very excited about our continued progress working with BUGS, SSWM, and our client WaterChef, Inc. We hope to keep testing and integrating our respective patented technologies to bring about continuous and steady revenues and growth."
