Desalitech and Toyo Engineering Corporation Form Global Partnership to
Introduce High Efficiency Water Treatment to Japanese and East Asian Markets

Massachusetts Governor Patrick Announces Strategic Alliance as Part of
Massachusetts - Asia Innovation Partnership Mission

BOSTON, Dec. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Desalitech, a provider of
high-efficiency water production and wastewater treatment solutions and
Japan-based Toyo Engineering Corporation announced the formation of a
strategic partnership to introduce environmentally responsible and highly
economical water and wastewater treatment solutions to Japanese, East Asian
and international markets. The partnership agreement was signed in Tokyo,
Japan as part of Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick's Massachusetts – Asia
Innovation Partnership Mission.

Industry is putting water resources under tremendous strain worldwide, driving
the need for highly efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective
water supply and wastewater treatment solutions. The collaboration between
Desalitech and Toyo will bring Closed Circuit Desalination (CCD) reverse
osmosis (RO) solutions to East Asian and other international markets to
increase water recovery, improve energy efficiency, reduce environmental
impact and reduce disposal costs.

"Global water challenges increasingly impact our health, economy and quality
of life," said Nadav Efraty, CEO of Desalitech. "Desalitech's CCD-RO solutions
provide the highest performance and the greatest flexibility to treat
challenging water sources reliably and economically. With our respected and
capable partner, Toyo Engineering, we are working to make pure water safe,
abundant and affordable for all."

Desalitech water treatment solutions provide superior performance at lower
costs, greatly reducing negative ecological impact, and improving the
productive and responsible use of natural resources. Its patented CCD systems
are able to achieve recovery rates of 93% or greater, compared to 75% recovery
or less with most conventional reverse osmosis systems. Higher recovery
produces less waste, resulting in lower disposal costs. Desalitech CCD
solutions require less energy than conventional reverse osmosis water
treatment systems, reducing carbon footprint. Furthermore, CCD systems are
uniquely capable extracting purified water from challenging sources and
adjusting to highly variable water conditions, making them ideal for
industrial water and effluent treatment, agricultural water supply and inland
brackish desalination.

"Our goal is to reduce our customer's water and energy footprint while
increasing process reliability and flexibility," said Toyo Senior Executive
Officer Kumar Akhilesh, Infrastructure Business Unit Director. "This
combination of better performance and greater environmental responsibility is
important for Japanese and global markets."

"We are in Japan because we know that if we want to sharpen our edge in the
innovation economy, we must strengthen our existing relationships and build
new ones," said Governor Patrick. "The new venture between Desalitech and Toyo
Engineering is a testament that our strategy is working and that Massachusetts
is competing on the global playing field."
