    • Marks the Group’s fourth large-sale turnkey contract win in 2 months

SINGAPORE - 24 April 2006 - Hot on the heels of its three large-scale turnkey

The project in Western Dongguan City, Guangdong Province (廣東省東莞市西部),

This latest project builds on the momentum for turnkey projects set out by the Group in

About Bio-Treat Technology Limited
Listed on the Main Board of the Singapore Exchange in February 2004, Bio-Treat Technology
Limited is one of the PRC’s leading companies in the development and application of
biotechnology for the treatment of waste and wastewater.

Bio-Treat has successfully developed the BMS Biological Process Technology - a proprietary
application of biological processes to waste and wastewater treatment. Since its first trial in 1993,
the BMS Technology has been applied to over 500 wastewater treatment projects in the PRC -
from residential to commercial and industrial projects. The waste and wastewater treated by the
BMS Technology meet the effluent standards set out by the State and local Environmental

sector with the successful completion of the Kunshan City Wastewater Treatment Plant (昆山市污
水處理廠). Capable of treating 100,000 tons of wastewater per day, the Kunshan City Wastewater

Treatment Plant not only represents the Group’s first large-scale municipal wastewater treatment
project, but also demonstrates the scalability of the BMS Technology and Bio-Treat’s execution

Leveraging on its BMS Technology, the Group has also successfully developed two waste
management products for commercial and residential use – the BMS Mobile Toilet and the BMS
Rubbish Processor. The BMS Mobile Toilet is designed for use at places where there is no
continuous water supply, such as tourist sites, parks and along highways, whilst the BMS Rubbish
Processor, available in various capacities to meet the needs of domestic and commercial users, is
designed for the treatment of organic waste material.
