Jean-Michel Cousteau, Troy Aikman, And Drew Bledsoe Hold Press Conference In Louisiana To Endorse Breakthrough Technology To Help Clean Up BP Oil Spill

STUART, Fla., June 10, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:ESPH), a diversified water engineering and environmental services company, displayed its non-chemical Ecosphere Ozonix water treatment systems at a press conference in New Orleans yesterday. The news conference held at Mid-Gulf Recovery Services was attended by world-renowned environmentalist and ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau and football greats, Troy Aikman and Drew Bledsoe. The patented Ecosphere Ozonix systems do not use chemicals for water treatment and have been built specifically to remove oil and chemicals from seawater. Reporters and film crews from local ABC and NBC affiliates, as well a crew from PBS attended the event. Fox News also interviewed Troy Aikman. See link to interview:

Jean-Michel Cousteau, President of Ocean Futures Society, stated, "Ecosphere has been providing its patented Ozonix technology to help major energy companies recycle their frac waters by eliminating chemical biocides. We must now use this same technology to help restore our seas and shores while protecting the habitats of the marine and wildlife of the Gulf Coast. Now is the time for action, action, action and this is technology that needs to be put to work immediately."

Former NFL Football quarterbacks Troy Aikman and Drew Bledsoe, both of whom are investors in Ecosphere Energy Services, LLC, a majority owned subsidiary of Ecosphere Technologies, spoke to the media about their involvement in bringing this technology to the Gulf. Drew Bledsoe helped fund the earliest units that have been used successfully by major energy companies to recycle water that is used in their fracturing operations to eliminate chemical biocides. 

Drew Bledsoe said, "It's the responsible thing to do. We have the technology and we know that it works. We feel we can make a difference down here." Troy Aikman added, "Hopefully, we can get the right people turned on to this and show them what this technology can do."
