AJAX, Ontario, Canada, Jan. 24, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Environmental Waste International Inc. (EWI) is pleased to announce that the FS6000 wastewater sterilization system installed at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) APHIS facility in Maryland has successfully met testing and ongoing operational performance criteria. This satisfies the terms of EWI's contract with the USDA.

In addition to the original FS6000 order, but as part of the original contract, the USDA awarded EWI a five-year maintenance contract on the system.

EWI has now been requested by the USDA to quote on a new contract, to cover the continuous monitoring of the system, including the compiling of monthly reports and analysis. This will include monthly onsite inspections and any ongoing system adjustments that may be needed to meet any new mandates or other requirements, as directed by the USDA.

The completion of this system, and the meeting of all performance criteria, represents the first commercial installation and application of EWI's technology. EWI believes that this successful installation represents a seminal event in its history since it validates the commercial utility of its technology. Management believes that its technology can be successfully applied in various other areas in the future. It is this potential that underpins our optimism about the company's impending commercial success.
