Thermal Energy International & Kemco Systems Inc Conclude Exclusive Distribution Agreement



    Agreement adds new products and customers across Europe, Middle East and
    Asia

    OTTAWA, June 8 /CNW Telbec/ - Thermal Energy International Inc.
(TSX-V:TMG) (www.thermalenergy.com) (the "Company" or "Thermal Energy") is
pleased to announce it has concluded an agreement with Kemco Systems Inc
(Kemco) of Clearwater, Florida (www.kemcosystems.com) to become the exclusive
distributor of Kemco products in all areas globally except North and South
America.
    Kemco is a recognized leader in providing high efficiency,
environmentally friendly water heaters, heat recovery, and water treatment
systems, guaranteeing performance that will save water, labor, energy, sewer,
and chemical costs. In business since 1969, Kemco's knowledge and experience
has provided over 5,000 systems world-wide to the laundry, textile, food &
beverage, ready mix concrete, automotive and other industries.
    As part of the agreement TEI will take on three Kemco International
employees in the United Kingdom under TEI's GEM division. TEI immediately
takes over the existing Kemco pipeline of sales opportunities in all the
territories represented in the distribution agreement.
    "We are very pleased to conclude this agreement with Kemco, adding a
number of new proven products to our offering, ultimately providing more
options and more value for our customers" said Tim Angus Thermal Energy
International President & CEO. "Kemco has an established track record as the
industry leader for heat recovery, ultra efficient water heating and water
recycling technologies" said Angus.
    Under the terms of the agreement, TEI will continue to market its
trademark Flu-Ace(R) to select customers and industries, while also adding
Kemco's line of condensing boiler stack economizers, direct fired water
heaters, waste water and heat recovery systems. In addition, Kemco will
manufacture TEI's Flu-Ace(R) systems to TEI's specifications at their
Clearwater, Florida manufacturing plant. This arrangement is anticipated to
improve TEI's manufacturing cost.
    Kemco's boiler stack heat recovery product and its environmentally
friendly water heaters are strong compliments to TEI's proprietary Flu-Ace(R)
heat recovery and GEM Condensate Return products. In addition Kemco's water
recycling technologies will allow TEI to capitalize on the rapidly growing
trend of on-site commercial and industrial water treatment and water recycling
among its customers. The strong customer and industry overlap between Kemco,
TEI and GEM should provide significant opportunities for sales synergy and
expansion.
    "We are very excited about this agreement and we look forward to the
future with TEI and GEM and expanding our tried and proven technologies
globally" said Carroll Gorrell, President & CEO of Kemco Systems Inc.
    In North America, TEI will continue to offer its full suite of solutions
to its customers, but now has the option of providing it's USA based customers
with a very competitive 'Made in America' heat recovery solution.
