Emergency Filtration Products -EFP- Application for Navy-Funded Technology Transfer Project Advances to Final Presentation on Aug. 9, 2004

EFP to Build Filter Media Different Prototypes for Multiple Potential Military and Homeland Security Uses

 

HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 20, 2004-- Emergency Filtration Products Inc. (OTCBB: EMFP) announced that it has been notified that its application to apply for participation in a Navy-funded Technology Transfer project (Center of the Commercialization of Advanced Technology (CCAT)) commercialization and services which encompasses filter technology products, has advanced to the final stages of competition and evaluation. Accordingly, the company will make a final technology presentation to a special panel of subject matter experts on Monday, Aug. 9, 2004 in San Diego.

Assuming that EFP is selected to proceed following the Aug. 9, 2004 presentation, the company will build two filter product prototypes, both of which will employ the company's patented 2H filter technology. One of the prototypes will be built with the additional protection offered by the company's proprietary nanotechnology process in which the filter prototype will be treated with a coating of nano particles.
The prototypes, which are expected to take approximately one month to build, are designed for a large number of potential applications, including, but not limited to: biohazard masks, transportation (aircraft, tanks, armored personnel carriers) and buildings (military, industrial, office and residential).

The prototypes will then be tested over a period that is expected to take one month or less. Assuming the successful completion of prototype development and testing, the filter products would then be produced by a U.S. Navy-approved manufacturer.

About Emergency Filtration Products Inc.

EFP is an air filtration products manufacturer whose technology provides filtration efficiencies of "greater than 99.99% at a particle size of 0.027 microns." Its initial products were developed for the medical market: the Vapor Isolation Valve(TM); RespAide -- a CPR mask used for resuscitation of respiratory/cardiac arrest cases; an A.E.D. prep kit; and the 2H Breathing Circuit Filter. Each has received FDA approval. EFP's 2H NanoMask with 27 nanometers filtration capability relies on the company's core 2H Technology(TM) filtration system, which utilizes a combination of hydrophobic and hydrophilic filters able to capture and isolate bacterial and viral microorganisms with efficiencies of 99.99%. The environmental mask utilizes the company's patented 2H Technology(TM) and nano-technology to enhance the capture and isolation characteristics of the filter media. In addition to filtration products, the company also supplies Superstat, a modified hemostatic collagen, to the medical market and U.S. military for extreme wound care.
