ICC TECHNOLOGIES GETS GRANT TO CONFIRM ITS AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM'S ABILITY TO REMOVE HAZARDOUS MICROORGANISMS FROM THE AIR

 PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- ICC Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICGN), the developer of CFC-free, energy-efficient air conditioning systems, today announced it has been awarded a $36,320 grant from the Ben Franklin Technology Center to quantify the impact of ICC's air conditioning system on the indoor air quality in health care facilities.
 The ICC air conditioner to be tested will be the newly developed one that utilizes a patented ETS material developed by Engelhard Corporation. Data will be analyzed to determine the ICC system's ability to reduce specific microorganisms such as those linked to institution-acquired infections. The project will take place at Hahnemann University's School of Medicine and a yet-to-be-determined health care facility in the Philadelphia area.
 Preliminary results from a current Ben Franklin-supported project, undertaken by ICC in conjunction with Lehigh University, indicated that the ICC system has significant capabilities in reducing the concentration of common airborne microorganisms.
 "Based on the findings of this new project, the Desi/Air system has the potential to be revolutionary in the treatment of air in medical facilities," said Irwin Gross, chairman, ICC Technologies. "Millions of hospital and nursing home patients face prolonged hospital stays as a result of airborne contaminants that can often lead to serious conditions, including pneumonia. Presently, the only means available to control airborne microorganisms within healthcare facilities is through the use of expensive filtration systems, which are generally used only in operating rooms and critical care areas."
 ICC Technologies, headquartered in Philadelphia, develops innovative, efficient space conditioning technologies to address the needs of today's commercial marketplace. ICC's products are being marketed to indushomes, large retail outlets and office buildings.
