Tauriga Sciences Inc. Launches $1,700,000 USD Commercial Pilot Test With the
EPA and the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati

CINCINNATI, March 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tauriga Sciences Inc.
(OTCQB:TAUG) or ("Tauriga" or "the Company"), a diversified life sciences
company with key assets that include license agreements and a proprietary
technology platform in the nanorobotics space, has today announced that its
wholly owned subsidiary Pilus Energy LLC ("Pilus Energy") has commenced a
five-phase, $1,700,000 USD commercial pilot test ("commercial pilot") with the
Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA"), utilizing Chicago Bridge & Iron Co.
(NYSE:CBI) ("CB&I") Federal Services serving as the third-party-contractor
through the EPA's Test and Evaluation ("T&E") facility.This five phase
commercial pilot will include significant testing of the Pilus Energy
Electrogenic Bioreactor ("EBR") synthetic biology platform for generating
value from wastewater.This commercial pilot is of great importance to the
Company, because it represents the scale up from the benchtop (laboratory)
scale to commercial (industrial) scale.The Metropolitan Sewer District of
Greater Cincinnati ("MSDGR"), which is co-located with EPA's T&E facility,
will host the commercial scale EBR prototype at its main treatment plant in
Cincinnati.

Pilus Energy's EBR harnesses genetically enhanced bacteria, also known as
bacterial robots ("BactoBot™"), that remediate water, harvest direct current
("DC") electricity, and produce economically important gases and
chemicals.This BactoBot™ powered EBR technology was originally developed by
Cincinnati-based Pilus Energy and University of Cincinnati microbiology
professor Daniel Hassett.The EPA became aware of Pilus Energy through
Confluence, the regional water technology innovation cluster, and since then
has been providing support to the company, in determining the long term
potential of the proprietary EBR technology platform, with respect to more
effectively remediating waste-water, while simultaneously harnessing the
metabolic properties of bacteria to extract direct current electricity and/or
hydrogen gas from various wastes.

Tauriga acquired the proprietary EBR technology platform through its completed
acquisition of Pilus Energy, which took place on January 28, 2014. The global
wastewater-to-value market is currently estimated at $10 billion and is
projected to grow to $27 billion by the year 2021.

Tauriga CEO Dr. Stella M. Sung commented, "We are very pleased to commence
this important commercial pilot test with the EPA and the MSDGR, which has the
potential to provide commercial validation for our proprietary 'wastewater to
value' platform and, importantly, potential long-lasting benefits for the city
of Cincinnati.A successful commercial pilot would provide a critical step in
achieving commercialization and economic development goals."

Biju George, Deputy Director, Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater
Cincinnati, stated, "The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati is
excited to be the world's first deployment site for this innovative
technology.Due to our location, partners, specialized facilities and
personnel, we are perfectly suited to be the pilot site.The Tauriga Sciences
value proposition has the promise to change the wastewater industry."

Additionally Sally Gutierrez, Director of the Environmental Technology
Innovation Cluster Development and Support Program at the EPA also expressed
support of the collaboration.Much of the initial work will be performed at
the US EPA Test and Evaluation Facility in Cincinnati.
