TOLEDO, Ohio, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- N-Viro International Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: NVIC) received notice of allowance from the Canadian Patent Office for intellectual property rights filed in 2002. The international patent for controlling ignitability of organic waste is an integral component in the production of N-Viro Fuel™. N-Viro International Corporation expects to work with our established Canadian clients as well as others to further N-Viro Fuel™ commercialization in the international marketplace.
This international patent is substantially identical to the Company's U.S. patent for the same method. The exclusive rights to the method in both countries include the treatment of organic waste, which consist of controlling ignitability, odor control, ease of handling and storage, as well as the controlled burning of organic waste as fuel for power generation.
As stated by Dr. Terry Logan earlier,
"N-Viro's discovery of the thermal stabilizing properties of fine-grained mineral by-products is a key to the company's N-Viro Fuel process for converting waste organics into valuable products. In addition, the N-Viro thermal drying process is simpler, safer and more reliable than traditional drying of biosolids, for example, because of the thermal stability of volatile organics when mixed with mineral by-products."
Dr. Logan is an expert in environmental conservation and a significant participant in the invention and development of the N-Viro Fuel™ energy system.

Special Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
The Company cautions that words used in this document such as "expects," "hopes", "anticipates," "believes" and "may," as well as similar words and expressions used herein, identify and refer to statements describing events that may or may not occur in the future. These forward-looking statements and the matters to which they refer are subject to considerable uncertainty that may cause actual results to differ materially from those described herein. For example, while the Company expects business expansion projects to begin in an estimated time frame, such expectations are subject to adverse economic conditions and other factors outside of the Company's control. Further, the Company's ability to increase capabilities and expand capacity is subject to the ability of the Company or its partners to access sufficient capital to pay for this expansion, which will further depend on, among other factors, market acceptance. The Company's ability to achieve profitability of these projects could be negatively impacted if there is a lack of an adequate supply of waste or expenses increase above the Company's expectations - including fuel and transportation costs, labor costs and costs relating to the treatment and processing of the biosolids and creation of the N-Viro Soil or N-Viro Fuel. In addition, while the Company believes that trends in "greener" energy solutions are moving in favor of the Company's technology, such trends may not continue or may never result in increased sales or profits to the Company because of the availability of competing products and other alternative energy source. All of these factors, and other factors, will affect the profitability of the Company. Additional information about these and other factors that may adversely affect these forward-looking statements are contained in the Company's reports, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009 and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting forward-looking information except to the extent required by applicable securities laws.
