Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada Sponsors Presentation for EARTH (Canada) Corporation in Calgary, Alberta

Montreal, CANADA


MONTREAL, March 28, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- Environmental Applied Research Technology House -- EARTH (Canada) Corporation (CDNX:EAR) and the Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada (PTAC) are hosting a Technology Information Session on EARTH's proprietary Total Oil Removal and Remediation (TORR(tm)) technology on Wednesday, April 17, 2002 in Calgary, Alberta.

Mr. Dennis Gaudet, President of PTAC, will host along with Mr. Jason Kropp, EARTH's Regional Representative, in presenting the TORR(tm) technology to members of PTAC, Oil & Gas Producers, and Environmental Industry representatives. The technical presentation outlines the mechanics of TORR(tm) and discusses applications in:


 -- Polishing of produced water in SAGD heavy oil (Tar Sands) recovery
    operations, allowing the producer to treat and recycle larger
    amounts of water for steam injection

 -- Conventional petroleum production, allowing TORR(tm) to recover
    larger amounts of oil from marginal wells with no outside energy
    inputs, including drilling and well testing operations.

 -- Environmental remediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated water at
    commercial and industrial sites, and oil spill cleanup in lakes,
    rivers, groundwater, and oceans

 -- Treatment of bilge and ballast water from transoceanic oil
    tankers, cruise ships and military vessels

Mr. Jason Kropp comments, "The PTAC and their Technology Information Session is a perfect opportunity for industry to be informed of EARTH's new technology. TORR is highly efficient in treating hydrocarbon-contaminated water in a multitude of industries and I am confident it is going to be well received."
