    VANCOUVER, Oct. 17 /CNW/ - SONIC Technology Solutions Inc. ("SONIC" or
"the Company"; TSX-V: SNV) and Phoenix Group Mexico S.A. de VC ("Phoenix")
announced today that they have agreed in principle to license the mobile Sonic
Treatment System ("the System") for the remediation of PCB contaminated soils
and treatment of PCB contaminated wastes within Mexico.
    Phoenix has notified SONIC that it wishes to exercise its option to enter
into a definitive licensing agreement no later than January 31st, 2008. The
license will be granted to a new wholly-owned Phoenix subsidiary,
Sonic-Phoenix Mexico S.A. de VC ("Sonic-Phoenix"). The parties have agreed to
a license fee structure that will see net proceeds from Sonic-Phoenix's
deployment of this technology in Mexico shared on an equal basis.
Sonic-Phoenix will have the right to acquire, use and operate Sonic Treatment
Systems and SONIC will assist and train Sonic-Phoenix personnel. It is
expected that the initial emphasis will be on the treatment of PCB
contaminated waste oils using the PCB Sonoprocess(TM).
    The Sonic Treatment System has also been licensed by SONIC in Canada,
Japan and Australia. The market for the remediation of PCB contaminated wastes
and soils in Mexico is expected to increase dramatically as new environmental
regulations are introduced progressively. A substantial backlog of PCB
materials has been accumulated in Mexico for treatment and disposal as a
result of the pace of economic development.

exhibit at Enviro-Pro Mexico 2007, at the World Trade Center in Mexico City,
Mexico ( and concurrently at Canadian Brownfields

searching for the right technology and partner to allow us to enter this
field. The Sonic Treatment System is ideally suited to the opportunities that
we have identified in Mexico to grow our operations by meeting the needs of
the marketplace. We also work extensively with the oil and gas industry and we
will be watching the development of SONIC's recent collaborations in the
energy sector with great interest."
    Adam Sumel, President and CEO of SONIC, commented "Phoenix came to Canada
and spent time studying our technology and had the opportunity to see it in
operation. Phoenix has demonstrated how they plan to build on this opportunity
through their existing operations and business networks. The market in Mexico
could become a significant one."
