DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 13, 2013) - Vista International Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: VVIT), a pioneer in efficient Waste-to-Energy technology, is pleased to give its investors an update on the planned expansion of its operations into Europe. 

The company recently submitted its application to be listed on the Stuttgart stock exchange in Germany, and expects to be accepted for trading on the exchange in the next few weeks. This listing is one of the final requirements for the planned investment of up to $6 million into the company. The investment is proceeding as planned and, upon its completion, will allow the company to implement its planned expansion into Europe. The company has received significant interest across a number of countries in eastern Europe, and upon closing of the investment will be meeting with local and regional officials regarding the placement of Vista waste-to-energy systems to solve their disposal issues.

CEO Tim Ruddy commented on the events. "The expansion of European operations is critical to our moving forward as a company. The aged condition of many of the landfills in Europe, coupled with stringent environmental regulations regarding waste disposal have created an excellent opportunity for Vista's proven waste-to-energy technology. And as we create a market presence for the Thermal Gasifier in Europe, it is important for our shares to be easily traded by European investors in their home countries."
