PyroGenesis Obtains Patent for its Ultra Compact Waste Treatment System Ideal 
for Small Ships and Isolated Communities; Cancels and Grants Options 
MONTREAL, Nov. 19, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. ("PyroGenesis" 
or the "Corporation") (TSXV: PYR), today announces that the European Patent 
Office has granted the Corporation a patent for its Three Step Ultra-Compact 
Plasma System for the High Temperature Treatment of Waste which is ideal for 
niche markets such as small ships and isolated communities. 
Also referred to as the Electric Garbage Can (EGC), this system complements 
PyroGenesis' flagship product, the Plasma Arc Waste Destruction System (PAWDS) 
designed for aircraft carriers and commercial cruise ships. The ECG targets 
the lucrative and largely ignored markets of frigates, destroyers, cargo ships 
and isolated communities in general. "As a result of its premier position in 
the plasma waste treatment niche arena, PyroGenesis recognized that there is a 
lucrative and largely untapped market for efficient waste treatment in 
isolated communities. Pyrogenesis also recognized that smaller military ships 
were nothing more than isolated communities in themselves. With the 
anticipated build in military ships by the US and Canadian governments (the 
Canadian Government has set aside $35 billion to build 28 ships) combined with 
new MARPOL rules coming into force, it became increasingly apparent that it 
will be difficult for military ships to adhere to these new regulations. 
PyroGenesis is now in a position to offer an efficient, reliable and cost 
effective waste management solution to address this global problem.", says 
Gillian Holcroft, Executive VP for PyroGenesis. "This patented process 
addresses many of the shortcomings of conventional technologies. Not only is 
it compact and produces no secondary residues but, more importantly, it offers 
continuous operation without the need for fresh water; a scarce resource in 
isolated communities", says Pierre Carabin, PyroGenesis' Chief Engineer. 
"Once again, PyroGenesis' has succeeded in identifying niche markets where 
other technologies have failed. We quickly recognized that the value 
proposition for this largely ignored market segment required a compact, low 
cost system which had to allow for continuous feeding of waste as well as 
eliminating the need for fresh water. I am proud to say that we again have 
risen to the occasion and our team has developed a process that has far 
exceeded these requirements." says P. Peter Pascali, PyroGenesis' President. 
Pyrogenesis also announces the cancellation and grant of incentive stock 
options (each an "Option") to certain employees, directors and officers of the
