OTTAWA, ONTARIO – November 22, 2022 – Thermal Energy International Inc. (“Thermal Energy” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: TMG, OTCQB: TMGEF), a provider of innovative energy efficiency and carbon emission reduction solutions to major corporations around the world, has received orders totalling approximately $2.5 million from a leading snack manufacturer to implement a water recovery, thermal energy efficiency improvement and carbon emission reduction project across multiple sites. All figures are shown in CAD.
This order covers the engineering, supply and installation of GEMTM steam traps at 16 sites representing Thermal Energy’s largest GEMTM project to date. Sold as Custom Equipment, GEMTM steam traps are often installed by the customer's on-site maintenance team prior to commissioning by Thermal Energy, however for this customer Thermal Energy will oversee the full scope of installation work.
The retrofit of GEMTM Traps is a cost-effective energy efficiency measure that will reduce water and energy consumption, as well as maintenance costs and greenhouse gas emissions. This project will deliver combined annual utility and water savings of over $650,000 annual CO2e reduction of 5,255 tonnes and save more than 10 million gallons of water per year.
Prior to this project, Thermal Energy had implemented GEMTM steam traps at some of the customer’s other facilities and completed a $1.5 million heat recovery project at one site in 2019 that represented the application of new technology to a new heat source with this customer as part of a company-wide commitment to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“This is a prime example of not only a significant roll-out of our technologies across multiple sites, but the immense trust our multinational customers place in us. It is a testament to our collaborative approach to delivering innovative energy and carbon emission reduction projects and, as with all our global multisite customers, there is excellent opportunity for replicating project success across many more sites and divisions using our unique portfolio of technologies deployed in the most effective way for each site and organization.” said William Crossland, CEO of Thermal Energy.
The project is expected to be completed and revenue earned within nine months.

This press release contains forward-looking statements relating to, and amongst other things, based on management’s expectations, estimates, and projections, the anticipated effectiveness of the Company’s products and services, the timing of revenues to be received by the Company, the anticipated effects of COVID-19 on the business, backlog, and revenue, and the expectation that orders in backlog will become revenue.
Information as to the amount of heat recovered, energy savings, and payback period associated with Thermal Energy International’s products are based on the Company’s own testing and average customer results to date. Statements relating to the expected installation and revenue recognition for projects, statements about the anticipated effectiveness and lifespan of the Company’s products, statements about the expected environmental effects and cost savings associated with the Company’s products, and statements about the Company’s ability to cross-sell its products and sell to more sites are forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve several risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. Many factors, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, could cause events and results to differ materially from those stated. Fulfillment of orders, installation of products, and activation of products could all be delayed for several reasons, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, which would result in anticipated revenues from such projects being delayed or in the most serious cases eliminated. Actions taken by the Company’s customers and factors inherent in the customer’s facilities but not anticipated by the Company can have a negative impact on the expected effectiveness and lifespan of the Company’s products and on the expected environmental effects and cost savings expected from the Company’s products. Any customer’s willingness to purchase additional products from the Company and whether orders in the Company’s backlog as described above will turn into revenue is dependent on many factors, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, including but not limited to the customer’s perceived needs and the continuing financial viability of the customer. The Company disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any such statements except as required by law. Readers are referred to the risk factors associated with the Company’s business as described in the Company’s most recent Management’s Discussion and Analysis available at www.SEDAR.com.
