    iCrete is part of a team constructing the new casino resort which
includes Revel Entertainment Group, one of the world's newest gaming and
entertainment developers; Atlantic County Concrete, owned and operated by
Nancy Armienti, the highest ranking woman in the New Jersey concrete industry;
and Tishman Construction, one of the world's most renowned and active
construction management firms.
    "Revel Entertainment CEO Kevin DeSanctis and his team are building the
world's greenest casino resort and certainly one of the most beautiful," said
iCrete CEO Juan Carlos Terroba.  "iCrete is proud to play a featured role on
the resort construction team, part of a broad effort by
environmentally-conscious executives pursing LEED certification in the U.S.
and abroad."
    "Meeting the LEED certification standards of the U.S. Green Building
Council has become a principal objective for the designers and builders of
large public projects and infrastructure in New Jersey and across the
country," said Nancy Armienti, president of Atlantic County Concrete, which
has selected and poured a variety of iCrete mixes on projects in New Jersey.
    Added Armienti: "iCrete's technology has allowed us to fully optimize the
use of resources for the Revel site, reduce the carbon footprint of the
construction effort, and help Revel meet its LEED goals.  We are pleased to be
able to offer in Atlantic City unique concrete mixes like those from iCrete
that support the LEED process."
    Revel Casino Resort is the largest project yet in New Jersey to pour
mixes using iCrete's technology.  Internationally renowned Miami architect
Bernardo Fort-Brescia, founder of the award-winning Arquitectonica firm, has
designed the striking casino complex, open to the beach and the sea.
    Freedom Tower in New York, which is rising 130 miles northeast of
Atlantic City on the site of the former World Trade Center in lower Manhattan,
was the first major application in the Northeastern United States using iCrete
concrete mixes.  During the design phase of Freedom Tower, the building's
engineers required concrete used in construction of the project to achieve a
record-breaking 14,000 pounds per square inch (PSI) of compressive strength.
    Since the first pour at Freedom Tower in October 2007, iCrete mixes have
been used at more than 30 construction locations in the Greater New York
tri-state area alone and is now being poured by Atlantic County Concrete at
the Revel Casino Resort site.  Revel anticipates that the 20-acre development,
which includes a luxury hotel, a world-class casino, a 5,000-seat
state-of-the-art theater, and other amenities, will be completed in 2010.
    Added iCrete CEO Terroba: "We have now entered into agreements with
producers and builders in major international cities to test and evaluate
iCrete custom mix designs for some of the most significant and prestigious
buildings and infrastructure projects in the world.  The
Arquitectonica-designed Revel Casino Resort is an important and respected
milestone in that international expansion."
