Next Fuel, Inc. (OTCQX: NXFI), which develops and commercializes "clean" energy and related environmental technologies, announced today that they have hired an independent professional engineering firm and have engaged IKOR Industries, Inc., an international filter manufacturer, as the company moves closer to commercializing its Low-Energy Pervaporation (LPV) water treatment technology. Positive results from recently completed bench tests conducted at the University of Wyoming have expedited the construction of the first large-scale prototype which the Company believes will be completed this month. The next step will be field tests this summer..

“The LPV Technology brings an opportunity to expand our energy related technology to clean up water used in oil and natural gas production, including Frac drilling,” stated Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, Robert Craig.  “We believe this technology will allow us to treat water that contains the most challenging, high salt- and total dissolved solids used or produced in U. S. oil & gas operations.  This new technology could provide the oil and gas industry with a new cost-effective method for treating this type of waste water and dealing with environmental restrictions on their operations”, Mr. Craig concluded.
