Seair provides water treatment solution to oil sands

/THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

EDMONTON, Dec. 15 /CNW/ - Seair Inc. ("Seair" or the "Company")(SDS:TSX Venture Exchange) today announced the sale of six large industrial water treatment units to an oil sands facility for use in treating groundwater prior to mining. The water, which has not come in contact with the mining operation, can be pumped out and released to the environment as long as it meets all regulated quality standards and specified parameters of dissolved oxygen to support aquatic life.

This groundwater is low in dissolved oxygen and needs to be oxygenated prior to release. Seair's diffusion equipment will be used to efficiently treat the water to meet specified parameters for Dissolved Oxygen (DO) and Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD).

Field testing of Seair equipment determined that DO and BOD targets can be met using ambient air diffused into surficial water flowing from horizontal wells.

"We're proud to be working with the oil sands mining industry in identifying an alternative economical and environmentally-friendly process to oxygenate surficial ground water," said Harold Kinasewich, President of Seair "We look forward in continuing to identify other areas within the oil sands that can benefit from Seair's technology."

About Seair

Seair is a leading developer of patent-protected diffusion and sterilization technologies, which allow for the efficient diffusion of gases into liquids, thereby facilitating numerous applications in a wide variety of industries, including wastewater treatment, pulp and paper production, food processing, aquaculture, agriculture/horticulture, sterilization, golf course irrigation and pond treatment, animal enhancement and oil and gas. Seair's primary focus is developing and selling equipment that diffuses gases, such as oxygen, ozone or carbon dioxide, into a liquid, resulting in a supersaturated solution. The major difference between Seair's and others' diffusion technologies is Seair's ability to achieve extremely small bubble size, which in turn allows for the mass transfer of gas to fluid. The result is a stable condition, where gases remain in solution for extended periods of time, leading to increased productivity and lower operating costs. Seair provides diffusion-enhanced portable wastewater treatment plants through its subsidiary, Seair Septic.

Seair Inc. is proud to have been selected as one of the "2008 TSX Venture 50", a ranking of the top 10 public venture capital companies in 5 industry sectors listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.
