ADDISON, Texas, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- As a result of its development program during 2006, CDT Systems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Boards: CDTN) has demonstrated improvements in excess of 100% in the tested performance of its capacitive deionization technology(R) water purification cell. The Company's original goal was to produce a basic cell that would: * Reduce the input level of total dissolved solids (TDS) of salt (NaCl) by 1000ppm (mg/l) * Produce 1000 gallons/day (3785.4 liters/day) of product water * Employ 1000 sq. ft. (92.9 m2) of carbon aerogel electrodes This objective equates to a removal of 3.8 grams of salt per square foot of carbon aerogel per day. Recent tests have demonstrated removal rates in excess of 7 grams/sq ft/day, with a maximum achieved of 7.7 grams/sq ft/day. This performance is expected to be bettered as additional features that have been shown to improve performance are incorporated into cell design. The CDT(R) cell is able to adjust the pH of the product water and waste water without the use of chemicals. The Company is investigating further applications of this feature. The Company's development program has also demonstrated a method of significantly reducing the volume of waste water generated by the Company's capacitive deionization technology(R). These demonstrated capabilities offer valuable economic and environmental advantages over existing water treatment technologies. The costs of chemicals for water treatment, and the volume of waste water and its chemical content, are important factors in evaluating water treatment projects. The Company has also reduced its estimated unit manufacturing costs for the CDT(R) cell in excess of 30% by replacing expensive components within the cell with alternative materials and design improvements. "Progress with the development program means we are on track to produce a second generation ("Gen 2") cell, which will incorporate these demonstrated improvements, during the first quarter of 2007," CDT Systems, Inc. Chief Executive Officer John Davies said in a statement. The Company is a business, technology, and manufacturing partner of the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory ("LLNL") for the development and commercialization of Carbon Aerogel material sciences- based capacitive deionization technology (CDT) for water purification, as well as Carbon Aerogel for hydrogen generation, fuel cells, nanotechnology electrodes and thermal insulation.

These forward-looking statements rely upon a number of assumptions concerning future events and are subject to a number of uncertainties and other factors outside CDT's control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements. While CDT believes that the assumptions concerning future events are reasonable, it cautions that there are inherent difficulties in predicting certain important factors that could impact the future performance. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are the completion of the manufacturing facility and the demand for CDT's products. These and other risk factors are discussed in CDT's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, copies of which are available to the public. CDT expressly disclaims any intention or obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
