ZAPIT TECHNOLOGY: ELECTRON BEAMS DESTROY HAZARDOUS WASTE

 TUCSON, Ariz., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Services Nevada, Las Vegas, and Zapit Technology Inc., Silicon Valley, Calif., have signed an Innovative Environmental Technology Teaming Agreement, Zapit announced today. The agreement will further the development and commercialization of the Zapit System for the on-site destruction of toxic waste using electron beams.
 The Raytheon-Zapit team will focus on DOD and DOE waste site clean-up and pollution control. The Western Governor's Association (WGA) indicates that "over 2/3 of federally contaminated waste sites are in the Western Region." WGA is actively encouraging the application of cost-effective, innovative environmental technologies in the region.
 The Raytheon-Zapit Teaming Agreement focuses on DOD and DOE facilities. "With the planned closure of military bases, the pressure to find solutions to our toxic waste problems is becoming critical," says Daniel Marks, Zapit's chief executive officer. "These facilities must be returned to acceptable environmental conditions if they are to be integrated into the commercial sector and contribute to the expansion of our economy. We are very pleased to team with Raytheon to address these problems." Bill Colston, president of Raytheon Services, Nevada, said that, "We believe that with Zapit's proprietary technology and Raytheon's resources and commitment to environmental remediation, we can make a significant contribution to solve these problems."
 Dr. Peter Schonberg, Zapit's chief technical officer and president, explains that the Zapit system sprays electrons into a specifically designed chamber where the electrons interact with the complex toxic molecules to break them down into simpler non-toxic molecules. The Zapit electron beam process is an on-site, non-burning, non-polluting process. The system is designed to address volatile organic waste streams (VOCs) in the vapor phase. VOCs are a primary soil and groundwater contaminant at federal waste sites.
