Sonic Wins Remediation Contract

Vancouver, CANADA - Sonic Environmental Solutions Inc. (SNV-TSX Venture Exchange) today announced that it has entered into a remediation contract to clean up a site in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) which has varying levels of Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB) contamination. Sonic will carry out the remediation on-site, under contract to a national remediation company. The contract guarantees a minimum of 500 tonnes, potentially up to 2,500 tonnes, of contaminated soil. The work is to be completed before the end of 2006. Under the terms of the contract, the site, its owner, contracting agent and other competitive-natured details cannot be disclosed at this time.

Sonic’s Vice President of Remediation Services, Mr. Larry Rodricks, commented, 'This project is a major milestone for Sonic as it’s a first in Eastern Canada following the Company’s recent approvals here in Ontario. This contract should be the trigger that Sonic has been waiting for in order to secure future projects which I expect to see us involved in. There are many opportunities for cost-effective green technologies, such as Sonic’s, involving environmentally-proactive site owners or high-value Brownfield sites. With the onset of the new proposed regulations, these opportunities will only increase.”

At the GTA site, Sonic’s Terra-Kleen solvent extraction system will be mobilized on-site. The Terra-Kleen process has a solid 13-year track record, having completed several major USA projects as large as 25,000 tons. Recently, the Terra-Kleen process gained ministry approvals to operate as a mobile soil treatment system in Ontario.

Sonic’s Remediation Services Division is primarily focused on the remediation of sites contaminated by chlorinated organics such as PCB, TCE, pesticides and herbicides.
