STUART, Fla., April 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ecosphere Energy Services, a subsidiary of Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:ESPH), a diversified water engineering and environmental services company, announces today that Chief Operating Officer Robbie Cathey, presented at the Shale Gas Water Management Marcellus Initiative 2011 in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania on April 13, 2011 to an audience of over 400 operators, service providers, regulators, and oil and gas industry experts interested in water management issues.

Mr. Cathey's presentation focused on concerns that the industry is facing with regards to water re-use and recycling, and also examined various case studies in which Ecosphere has recycled water for major energy companies at both on-site and off-site locations in major shale plays around the United States. Mr. Cathey highlighted operational updates from the field and also discussed what economical and environmental implications the patented Ecosphere Ozonix technology is currently having for customers that are using Ozonix on a daily basis.

Mr. Cathey stated: "My objective was to share the success Ecosphere has experienced over the last two years in other major shale plays with operators in the Marcellus Shale. Over the last 18 months, Ecosphere has treated over 16,000,000 barrels of fluid for operators in the Fayetteville and Woodford Shale formations. As regulatory and political pressures increase in the Marcellus Shale region, it will be important for operators to have a proven, non-chemical solution available to recycle and manage fluids. Ecosphere's Ozonix technology is that solution and has been proven on over 300 wells and by third party laboratories. Ecosphere's patented Ozonix technology is a high-volume, advanced oxidation process that treats water at the well site, eliminating the need for chemicals."
