Percotherm® and Percofrac® Orders Totaling $500,000

MONTREAL, October 1, 2013 - Sofame Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: SDW) (OTC.PK: SFMGF), a leading manufacturer of environmentally efficient industrial water heaters and cost effective heat recovery systems for traditional boilers, has received two new purchase orders totaling $500,000. One order from a Quebec-based food processor is for a Percotherm® boiler heat recovery system. The second order from western Canada is for a Percofrac® water heating system to be used in the extraction of natural gas from shale.


According to John Gocek, Sofame's President & CEO, "The new frac heater product is a perfect application for Sofame's proven direct-contact heat transfer technology. The Percofrac® is an innovation offering 99% fuel to water efficiency, which reduces both costs and CO2 emissions. These recent orders are encouraging at the start of our new fiscal year."

EPA Proposes Historic Rules to Regulate Carbon Emissions

The Environmental Protection Agency made history September 20 when it issued its first rules ever to regulate carbon emissions from new fossil-fired power plants. EPA said that under the proposal, new large natural gas-fired turbines would need to meet a limit of 1,000 pounds of CO2 per megawatt-hour. New small natural gas-fired turbines would need to meet a limit of 1,100 pounds of CO2 per megawatt-hour. New coal-fired units would need to meet a limit of 1,100 pounds of CO2 per megawatt-hour, and would have the option to meet an even tighter limit if they choose to average emissions over multiple years.

Carbon limits for existing coal-fired power plants are expected to be issued next June. However, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy told a gathering in Washington, D.C. last week that existing coal-fired power plants likely will not be required to install equipment to capture and store carbon dioxide they emit. Instead, McCarthy reportedly said that EPA will issue guidelines for states that allow the use of energy efficiency, clean-energy installations or demand cuts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The Gazette July 29, 2013
Natural gas used for heating is much cleaner than coal, but it still produces greenhouse gas. To help reduce natural gas consumption, Montreal-based company Sofame Technologies has developed a clean technology to recuperate residual heat from steam boilers. Ecole Polytechnique is one of places that has invested in this technology to improve its energy efficiency. In the second of eight videos that will highlight green technology in Quebec, video blogger Véronique Paquette-Corriveau of Ecotech Quebec discovered how the engineering school is able to heat two buildings for the price of one with Sofame's made-in-Québec innovation.

Journal Metro, Montrel, 28 juillet 2013
Le gaz naturel destiné au chauffage est bien moins polluant que le charbon, mais il émet tout de même du CO2! Pour permettre de réduire la con­sommation de gaz naturel, l'entreprise québécoise Sofame Technologies a développé une technologie propre permettant de récupérer la chaleur qui s'échappe normalement d'une chaudière à vapeur. Comme plusieurs aéroports, hôpitaux et usines, Polytechnique Montreal a investi dans cette technologie pour améliorer son rendement énergétique. La vidéoblogueuse Véronique Paquette-Corriveau de a découvert comment cette école d'ingénierie chauffe deux bâtiments pour le prix d'un grâce à cette innovation québécoise.
So Energy Efficient. Sofame.
