Earth Sciences Inc. Ahead of Schedule to Achieve Profitability in 2001

New Systems to Be Installed in Second Quarter on Over 1100 MWs of Power

Generation Represents a 60% Increase



Apr 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from Earth Sciences Inc.

    LITTLETON, Colo., April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Earth Sciences, Inc.
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   ESCI) today announced today that first quarter results
 and the anticipated impact of new sales will put the company ahead of 2001
 projections.  The operating projections for consolidated profitability in 2001
 were based upon existing business and expected sales of proprietary technology
 provided by its wholly owned subsidiary, ADA-ES, an environmental technology
 and specialty chemical company.
     Because of planned maintenance shutdowns of customer power plants during
 the spring, first and second quarter consolidated results were not expected to
 be profitable.  However, recent new customers and increased sales during the
 second half of the year are expected to put ESCI ahead of schedule for
 achieving consolidated profits for the year.  Details of the first quarter
 results will be released in early May, along with ESCI's Securities and
 Exchange filing.
     The company has achieved more than two years of performance success with
 ADA-37, ADA-ES' premier flue gas conditioning (FGC) product.  During the
 second quarter of 2001, ADA-ES will install new ADA-37 systems to treat flue
 gas from over 1100 mega watts of power.  This represents a 60 percent increase
 above the current capacity of plants using ADA-37.  The ADA-37 product
 recently received the Air and Waste Management Association's 2001 J. Deane
 Sensenbaugh Award in recognition of outstanding achievement in the field of
 air pollution control.
     "Our belief has been confirmed that further recognition and acceptance of
 this innovative technology by coal-fired power plants would lead to increased
 sales," reports Mark McKinnies, ESCI president.  "We expect usage at the new
 systems we're installing to exceed our previous projections for chemical sales
 in 2001."
     The high price of natural gas and concern over power shortages have
 created an excellent business environment for ADA-ES.  Its activities are
 focused on helping the electric utility industry meet environmental
 regulations and improve operating efficiencies.  "We expect that we will close
 additional sales of our technology and products later this summer and into the
 fall," predicts McKinnies.
     In addition to new projects with FGC, the company also is making progress
 on other fronts.  Startup activities are underway at the first two sites using
 ADA-ES' combustion enhancement product, ADA-249.  ADA-ES also is completing
 the first full-scale test of mercury control at Alabama Power's E.C. Gaston
 Plant.  This is the first of four plants to be tested under a $6.8 million
 Department of Energy program that ADA-ES is leading.  The encouraging
 performance results will be available to the public during July or August.
