NOXSO ANNOUNCES PILOT PLANT INTERIM TEST RESULTS

 NOXSO ANNOUNCES PILOT PLANT INTERIM TEST RESULTS
 BETHEL PARK, Pa., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Noxso Corporation


(NASDAQ: NOXO) today released interim results of its test of the Noxso flue gas treatment process being conducted at Ohio Edison's Toronto, Ohio, Power Station. The test is designed to operate the pilot plant and collect data from at least 5,000 hours of operation. The test began last November.
 With the pilot plant test more than 50 percent completed, all of the test data are meeting or exceeding expectations. The critical success criteria of pollutant removal rates and operation reliability are being met.
 Pollution removal rates of an average of over 90 percent of SOx and NOx were verified during virtually 3,000 hours of continuous operation. During the last two months (1,500 hours) the plant has performed extremely well, being easily operated by one individual and achieving an over 95 percent on-line performance. Noxso officials said these results are in line with company expectations.
 The pilot plant project is an $11.5 million test of the Noxso Process which is being jointly funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Ohio Coal Development Office, W.R. Grace (NYSE: GRA), MK-Furguson, a division of Morrison Knudsen (NYSE: MRN), Ohio Edison (NYSE: OEC), and Noxso.
 Lays Groundwork for First Commercial Size Installation
 The operating data being collected are being incorporated into the design of the company's first commercial size installation to be built at Ohio Edison's Niles power plant facility. Construction will begin in mid-1993 and be completed in 1994. This installation is being partially funded under the Clean Coal program and is part of a $66 million project which is funding both the construction of the plant and its operation for a two-year period.
