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

EDMONTON, Aug. 17 /CNW/ - Seair Inc. (SDS:TSX Venture Exchange) is pleased to announce that a major oil sands producer has elected to buy an additional eight groundwater treatment systems after an eight month trial period during which it rented the equipment from Seair.

Oil sands mining operations rest on pressurized aquifers which must be continually drained. This water is typically directed to tailings ponds unless properly treated. Seair's flow-through groundwater treatment systems are used to efficiently treat the water, meeting specific environmental parameters allowing for release without the need for tailing ponds. Our customer estimates that currently approximately 2/3 of its tailings are comprised of such water.

"This follow-up sale further demonstrates that Seair has the right solution for oil sands groundwater treatment," said Harold Kinasewich, President of Seair. "We are grateful that our customer has shown confidence in our ability to continue to deliver economically viable environmental solutions."

About Seair

Seair develops proprietary equipment that diffuses gases into liquids. The introduction of oxygen, ozone or carbon dioxide results in a supersaturated solution, that meets environmental standards and customer needs. Seair's patented technologies can produce extremely small bubbles which are more efficient than other diffusion technologies. Our technologies are used in a variety of applications in the oil and gas industry. We also service customers in such diverse fields as wastewater treatment, pulp and paper, food processing, aquaculture, agriculture/horticulture, sterilization, golf course irrigation and pond treatment and animal enhancement.

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.
