LITTLE RIVER, S.C., July 16, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Integrated Environmental Technologies Ltd. (IET) of Little River, South Carolina announced preliminary storm water test results. IET, through its research and demonstration efforts within the company's EcaFlo Division, has been working closely with Coastal Carolina University (CCU) to develop effective applications for its electro-chemically activated solutions for storm water clean up.

According to Dr. Joseph Bennett, Director of the Environmental Quality Laboratory with CCU, "Initial preliminary tests of applied EcaFlo solution, generated by a specific model of IET's EcaFlo device, to contaminated storm water have resulted in encouraging results in the solution's effectiveness. When a small volume of the solution was added to storm water contaminated with substantial concentrations of fecal coliform bacteria, all the bacteria were quickly killed."

IET's EcaFlo solution research and documentation will continue in identified demonstration applications within South Carolina's coastal region. IET is developing EcaFlo HydroSan devices for clean up of contaminated waters.

IET is developing and marketing EcaFlo devices within the United States for numerous applications such as: medical, health care, agricultural, meat safety, veterinary, food processing, water disinfection and purification. As the exclusive licensee of the patented EcaFlo HydroPur devices within the United States, through license agreement with Electro-Chemical Technologies, Ltd. for certain applications listed above, Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd. will produce and distribute various EcaFlo device models.
