AWT/REECO AND M&W INDUSTRIES SIGN AGREEMENT TO MARKET INNOVATIVE VOC-CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES

 BRANCHBURG, N.J., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- REECO, Inc., a Research- Cottrell company and a subsidiary of Air & Water Technologies Corporation (AMEX: AWT), announced that it has signed a significant marketing agreement with M&W Industries of Rural Hall, N.C. Under the terms of the agreement, AWT/REECO will be granted the exclusive worldwide rights to market and deliver M&W's patent-pending Re- Gensorb(TM) system and catalytic oxidation system.
 Re-Gensorb is a technologically advanced, low-cost system that controls high-volume gas streams with low concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). A uniquely designed fixed-bed molecular sieve concentrator coupled with a catalytic oxidation system, the space-saving Re-Gensorb system delivers 95+ percent destruction efficiency to gas streams up to and above 100,000 standard cubic feet per minute (scfm).
 Applications for the Re-Gensorb and standard catalytic oxidation systems include the coating and printing, packaging, chemical, and electronics industries. The Re-Gensorb, designed in 1992, has been successfully pilot tested and is operating on a 100,000 scfm printing press. The catalytic oxidation system, commercialized in 1985, is operating on facilities with gas streams ranging from 150 to 50,000 scfm.
 The addition of Re-Gensorb and standard catalytic oxidation to AWT's VOC-control technologies portfolio expands the company's ability to serve a market estimated at $250 million for 1994.
 "We are extremely pleased to be collaborating with a partner as technologically advanced as M&W," said Donald A. Deieso, president and CEO of Research-Cottrell Companies. "The M&W technologies and business approach complement perfectly those offered by REECO. Together, we will be able to offer our clients a full range of state-of-the-art, cost- effective technologies to meet the requirements of the Clean Air Act Amendments."

We look forward to a long and successful relationship with REECO and all of the AWT companies."
