NATEC RESOURCES ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF DRY SODIUM SYSTEM FOR WISCONSIN ELECTRIC POWER COMPANY

 HOUSTON, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- NaTec Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ Small Cap: NATC) today announced the completion of the first two dry sodium injection systems for SO2 control at Wisconsin Electric Power Company's Port Washington Power Plant.
 The Unit 1 system was placed in service in June, 1993, and will be followed by the completion of the Unit 4 system in June, 1994. As the supplier of the turnkey system, NaTec is responsible for the engineering, procurement and installation. In addition, NaTec provides the nahcolite sorbent for the system under a long term supply contract. The fully automated systems are capable of cyclic operation and allow for various levels of SO2 reduction.
 Commenting on the milestone, John McCormack, president and CEO of NaTec Resources, stated, "We are extremely pleased with the results of the Unit No. 1 installation and the opportunity to participate in this noteworthy plant renovation program. The installation at Wisconsin Electric Power, together with the expanding program at Public Service Company of Colorado, is testimony to the efficacy of dry sodium injection for SO2 control in the utility industry."
 In remarks addressing developments in the Clean Air Act utility market McCormack added, "NaTec is well positioned to participate in the utility market as it has evolved. The majority of utilities have adopted a flexible strategy for compliance and have avoided large irreversible capital expenditures. The decision by more than 60 percent of the affected 263 units to switch or blend fuels in Phase I has created a spectrum of greater opportunity for SO2 trim technologies such as dry sodium injection. NaTec's basic market strategy of turnkey system delivery, supported by our fundamental competitive strength of vertical integration as a low cost producer of sodium bicarbonate, places us in a strong position to compete for the expanding niche for SO2 trim. Flexibility will remain the watchword for many utilities throughout the 1990's as the Phase II compliance deadline approaches for more than 2100 affected units throughout the country."
 NaTec is committed to the control of pollutants commonly associated with acid rain. The company provides consulting engineering, injection system installation, operations and maintenance services, and processed sorbent supply. Primary markets are utility, industrial power generation, pulp and paper, refining and municipal solid waste.
