BALLERUP, Denmark, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LiqTech International, Inc. (NYSE: LIQT) ("LiqTech") applauds President Obama's directive to the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce greenhouse gas pollution from truck tailpipes and other major sources of carbon pollution. 

The full story can be read by referring to the Tuesday, February 18, 2014 The New York Times Politics Section.

Mr. Finn Helmer, CEO of LiqTech, stated, "The focus on the elimination of carbon pollution as noted by President Obama in his directive to the Environmental Protection Agency is a welcome step in recognizing the impact of carbon pollution on climate change and its impact on human health.  Hopefully, the pending directives will be acted upon without delay."

Mr. Helmer continued, "Our diesel particulate filters (DPF) have been placed in thousands of trucks and buses with excellent results.  The California Air Resource Board, in particular, has mandated the use of particulate filters in trucks of a certain age by the end of 2015.  Its filter specifications place LiqTech as a preferred provider and we anticipate that we will see a significant increase in DPF orders prior to the end of 2015 as a result from California as well as additional meaningful DPF business from other countries such as China and England."
