Isobarix's Leif Hauge Prohibited by Judicial Order from Selling Pressure

SAN LEANDRO, Calif., July 9, 2013 -- Energy Recovery Inc (NASDAQ: ERII), the
global leader in harnessing reusable energy from industrial fluid flows and
pressure cycles, today announced that the federal district court for the
Eastern District of Virginia issued an injunction against Leif J. Hauge
preventing Mr. Hauge, "whether through Isobarix or any other person or entity,
from manufacturing and selling pressure exchangers and replacement parts for
Energy Recovery's pressure exchangers." In issuing the injunction, the Court
found that Mr. Hauge had knowingly violated the Court's prior Order approving
a 2001 settlement between Mr. Hauge and Energy Recovery, and thus was found to
be in contempt of the Court's Order.

Tom Rooney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Energy Recovery,
commented, "We welcome the Court's decision supporting our belief that Mr.
Hauge has no right to manufacture or sell pressure exchangers. Energy
Recovery has and will continue to protect its intellectual property rights on
a global basis."
