AWT SUBSIDIARY AWARDED CONTRACT FOR COHPAC FABRIC FILTER SYSTEM AT TEXAS UTILITIES ELECTRIC

 BRANCHBURG, N.J., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Research-Cottrell, a subsidiary of Air and Water Technologies Corporation (AMEX: AWT), has been awarded a contract for the design, engineering, and supply of seven Low Pressure/High Volume pulse jet fabric filters at Texas Utilities Electric's Big Brown Steam Electric Station in Fairfield, Texas. The fabric filters will provide additional particulate collection on two 575-MWe lignite pulverized-coal-fired boilers.
 The contract, valued at more than $14 million, calls for Unit 2 fabric filters to be operational by late 1995; start-up of Unit 1 is scheduled for early 1996. Successful performance of a full-scale 145- MWe demonstration fabric filter led to the contract, which represents the first commercial application of the Electric Power Research Institute's (EPRI) patented Compact Hybrid Particulate Collector (COHPAC) technology.
 COHPAC uses high ration pulse-jet filters in series and downstream of an energized electrostatic precipitator to remove particulates from the flue gas stream, achieving desired particulate emission levels. Research-Cottrell is the first EPRI-licensed company to offer COHPAC commercially. When completed, the installation will be the largest pulse-jet fabric filter system in North America.
 "COHPAC's proven success greatly expands our ability to assist clients in resolving complex particulate control problems and in achieving compliance with the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990," said Eckardt C. Beck, chairman and CEO of AWT. "We are proud to be the first and only company to offer our clients this ground-breaking technology." The subsidiaries of Research-Cottrell-Air Pollution Control Division, Custodis, Ecodyne Cooling Tower Services, Flex-Kleen, KVB/Analect, R-C Environmental, R-C Europe, and REECO -- provide the expertise, technology, and services to comprehensively solve any air or thermal pollution problem. Air & Water Technologies, through its operating units -- Metcalf & Eddy, Research-Cottrell, and Residuals Management -- provides a broad range of environmental services and technologies in the areas of water resource management, air pollution control, and waste by- product disposal and reuse. The company's AWT Capital group provides services relating to the financing of environmental facilities and systems.
