Thermal Energy Breaks into Alberta's Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Sector - Edmonton-area petrochemical manufacturer begins retrofit with GEM(R) steam traps



    OTTAWA, Aug. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - Thermal Energy International Inc.
(TSX-V: TMG) (www.thermalenergy.com) is pleased to announce that an
Edmonton-area petrochemical manufacturer has become the first oil, gas and
petrochemical customer in Canada to use the GEM(R) Condensate Return System.
    The customer, considered a major employer in the Metropolitan Edmonton
area, is initially undertaking a retrofit of approximately one third of a
small to mid-size facility with the "no-fail" energy saving GEM(R) steam
traps.
    "We see Alberta's booming oil patch as our primary Canadian market for
the GEM(R) Condensate Return System," said Thermal Energy President and CEO
Tim Angus. "GEM(R) steam traps can deliver significant savings for typical oil
and gas refineries currently using thousands of traditional steam traps which
historically have a high failure rate significantly increasing steam and
production costs."
    The GEM(R) Condensate Return System traps have no moving parts and come
with an unprecedented 10-year "no-fail" guarantee. Typical customers have
achieved between 12% and 30% savings in energy costs switching to GEM(R), with
commensurate reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. GEM(R) steam traps are
already in use in Europe's oil and gas, and petrochemical sector by companies
such as BP Oil, Exxon, Shell, Dow Corning, DuPont, BASF and others. For more
