      sales network, gets certified in China, and accentuates innovation

Quebec City, February 19, 2013 -  (TSXV: HEO) - H[2]OInnovation Inc.  ("H[2]O 
Innovation" or the "Company")  announces that Professional Water  Technologies 
("Professional Water Technologies"  or "PWT"), its  Californian business  unit 
specialized in  reverse osmosis  specialty  chemicals and  membrane  forensics 
services, has recently  entered into agreements  with three new  distributors, 
expanding its sales network  to Pakistan, Chile  and Oklahoma, United  States. 
Sales have already started  and first orders  have been shipped.  Professional 
Water Technologies  can  now  count  on 20  distributors,  ensuring  a  strong 
presence worldwide in its field of expertise.

Professional Water Technologies is also proud to announce that it received two
major certifications in  China. First, its  SpectraGuard(TM) product has  been 
approved for thermal desalination technologies, and more specifically for  low 
temperature multi-effect distillation (MED). This approval has been issued  by 
Zhonghe Seawater Desalination  Engineering Co., Ltd.,  a cooperation of  three 
giants China  state-owned organizations  and the  Chinese scientific  research 
institute. Additionally,  the Ministry  of  Health in  China has  delivered  a 
certificate for use of  Titan ASD(TM) 200 SC,  a concentrated, liquid  reverse 
osmosis  antiscalant,  in  plants  producing  drinking  water.  "We  are  very 
confident that  these new  certifications  will increase  our sales  level  of 
specialty  chemicals,  not  only  in  China  but  also  abroad  where  thermal 
desalination is  used. This  important milestone  reinforces our  strategy  to 
target high-growth  niche  markets  through  our  innovative  and  competitive 
chemicals", stated Frédéric Dugré, President & CEO of H[2]OInnovation.

In  parallel,  as  part  of  its  continuous  proactive  approach  to  support 
innovation and  improve product  development  for its  PWT product  line,  the 
Company has recently hired a new  Product Development Chemist holding a  Ph.D. 
in chemical engineering, and notably specialized in antiscalants and  cleaners 
for membrane applications. "With 9 years of academic and industrial experience
in water  and  wastewater  treatment  and in  membrane  separation,  this  new 
resource will  bring  major knowledge  and  expertise to  our  existing  team, 
setting up improved  grounds for  innovation", concluded  David Russell,  Vice 
President, Specialty Chemicals & Services.
