    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.
