Ecosphere Technologies Announces Positive Results Of Scale Testing On Woodford Shale And Fayetteville Shale Produced Waters

STUART, Fla., Aug. 23, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:ESPH), a diversified water engineering and environmental services company, announces that its majority owned subsidiary, Ecosphere Energy Services, LLC (EES), completed tests on its Ecosphere Ozonix technology to treat produced waters and eliminate scaling. The tests confirm that the produced water treated by the Company's chemical free process eliminates scaling in 10,000 and 150,000 parts per million (ppm) TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) produced waters. The tests included raw and untreated 150,000 ppm TDS produced fluid from the Woodford Shale and raw and untreated 10,000 ppm flowback fluid from the Fayetteville shale.

The untreated produced water samples scaled while the samples treated by the Ozonix process did not. The dynamic tube blocking tests were conducted by Weatherford Labs in Houston, Texas to determine the effect the Ozonix process has on scaling, a major problem faced by the energy exploration companies. Energy companies presently use liquid chemical scale inhibitors during the fracturing of the well to keep scale from building up in the piping system. The results of these recent tests confirm that the Ecosphere Ozonix process to eliminate scaling can now replace liquid chemical scale inhibitors. Energy companies that are interested in reducing their environmental footprint have already begun using the Ecosphere Ozonix process. Click the following link to learn more about the test results:

Robbie Cathey, COO of EES stated, "Ecosphere has treated more than 7,000,000 barrels (294 million gallons) of water used in natural gas exploration over the past year.  We have recycled production waters for more than 100 wells, allowing the energy operating companies to reuse an environmental resource and save costs.  Our recent efforts are proving that our product is not only an environmentally friendly and cost effective water management solution, but can help treat a well more efficiently without the use of chemicals."
