FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 18 - Enviro Voraxial Technology, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: EVTN.OB) announced today that the Company is a featured exhibitor at the Advanced Produced Water Handling & OSPAR Compliance 2007 Conference. The conference is being held April 24-25 in Aberdeen, Scotland. The Company will demonstrate the oil/water separation performance of its Voraxial® 1000 Separator.
TwinFilter, a leading Dutch filtration company in the oil and gas industry, is co-session sponsors with EVTN. EVTN and TwinFilter recently signed a non-exclusive joint marketing agreement. Both companies have agreed to build and promote turn-key, oil/water and liquid/solid separation systems for the oil industry that will incorporate EVTN's Voraxial Separator and TwinFilter's coalescing, self cleaning filters and other filter technology. The turnkey system will allow an operator to achieve environmental effluent targets with low capital and operating costs.
The Voraxial® Separator provides a cost effective method to efficiently separate large volumes of solids and liquids with different specific gravities. Without needing a pressure drop, the Voraxial® provides for superior separation while decreasing the amount of space, energy and weight to conduct the separation - all of which are precious commodities on the offshore platform.

The need for effective produced water (oil/water) separation is a major issue for both offshore and land-based oil production facilities. Oil reservoirs frequently contain large volumes of water and as oil wells mature (the oil field becomes depleted), the amount of produced water increases. Worldwide, it is estimated that approximately 4 barrels of water is produced for every barrel of oil. The produced water must be purified or treated for removal of oil and solids prior to discharge or re-injection into underground formations.

About Enviro Voraxial® Technology
Enviro Voraxial® Technology, Inc.'s patented Voraxial® Separator is a cost-efficient, continuous flow separator that simultaneously separates liquid/liquid, liquid/solid or liquid/liquid/solid mixtures at extremely high flow rates while achieving very high levels of purity. The technological superiority of the Voraxial® Separator over conventional technologies is in its ability to produce a real-time, high "g" centrifugal force to yield a high-purity product or products at a volume of 3 gallons per minute to more than 10,000 gallons per minute. The Voraxial® Separator technology is scaleable and universal in its implementation. Although the Voraxial® Separator is applicable to almost any industry separation process, the Company is focusing its near-term efforts in the following five vertical markets: oil exploration and production, oil refineries, mining, manufacturing and municipal wastewater industry.
EVTN is continuing to develop and market its Voraxial® Separator as stand-alone technology as well as a key component of a turnkey separation system to improve the efficiency of self-contained treatment systems for multiple applications.
