And offers new innovative, high-efficiency and eco-friendly solutions

MONTREAL, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Noveko International Inc. (TSX: EKO) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that Canada's Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) has granted its Noveko Filtration division the prestigious PINNACLE INNOVATION Award in connection with the BOMA Canada 2011 National Contest, the winners of which were disclosed last night at the BOMEX® Conference held in St. John's, Newfoundland.

"We are truly honoured to be recognized as the big winner of the PINNACLE INNOVATION AWARD by BOMA Canada, whereas we had already won it at the local level from BOMA Québec last May. This honour is granted to the best in the real estate industry in Canada and recognizes those who, through their leadership and work, seek to redefine tomorrow's reality with respect the industry's standards of quality. It represents the recognition by Canada's largest building owners and managers group of the unique character of our filtration solutions and the many benefits associated with their use. All the players in the building industry are increasing aware of the importance of adopting green solutions from a sustainable development perspective. In this context, Noveko™ filtration solutions, which are much longer lasting, recyclable and combine efficiency, energy and cost savings, are therefore the ideal solution," indicated Mr. Simon Labrecque, Vice-President, filtration, Noveko.

New Innovative High-Efficiency Filters Meeting the Needs of an Expanded Client Base
The energy savings and the reduction in filtration waste arising from the use of our recyclable filtration solutions make them particularly important advantages for building owners and managers seeking to obtain the certifications recognizing responsible environmental management and the design and construction of sustainable buildings, such as the BOMA BESt (Building Environmental Standards) and LEED certifications. From this perspective, and in order to better meet its clients' needs, Noveko Filtration has expanded its filtration solutions and now offer new innovative high-efficiency filters. This new line of bag filters meets the highest filtration effectiveness standards, yielding performances ranging from MERV 10 to MERV 16 based on the ASHRAE 52.2 standard. By combining these new high-efficiency filters with our MERV 8 filters already available (also called "pre-filters"), Noveko Filtration now offers integrated solutions meeting every user's air filtration needs.

"In line with our goal of accelerating the commercialization of our solutions in the real estate segment, we are confident we are now ideally positioned to meet the needs of an expanded client base, thanks notably to the visibility associated with this prestigious award as well as our more complete portfolio of superior performance filtration solutions," concluded Mr. Labrecque.

About Noveko™ Filtration Solutions
The filtration solutions offered by Noveko Filtration incorporate patented technologies and consist of layers of synthetic fibre built into a rigid aluminum framework, making them perfectly leak-proof and resistant to variations in temperature and humidity. Their superior filtration effectiveness enables users to achieve energy savings related to their ventilation systems. Their increased durability, combined with the fact that they are cleanable and recyclable, significantly reduces the number of filters used and the costs associated with their replacement and the elimination of waste, making them an ideal eco-friendly solution. It is notably the incorporation of antimicrobial agents into the filter fibres that protects the filters against deterioration due to the action of microorganisms and accounts for their cleanability and durability.
