Pace is First to Convert Fleet to Extended Performance Oil Filter as Part of Sustainable Initiatives

For Immediate Release

Pace University Converts Campus Fleet to SOMS Technologies’ microGreen Extended Performance Oil Filter

Saves 650 gallons of oil and over 30% in oil-related maintenance costs

Valhalla, New York – December 16, 2008 – SOMS Technologies LLC, a provider of engine oil filtration products, today announced that Pace University is using the microGreen™ extended performance oil filter in its entire fleet of campus vehicles. By installing SOMS’ microGreen oil filters, the University’s vehicles now operate up to 24,000 miles without an oil change, saving an estimated 650 gallons of motor oil and over 30% in oil-related maintenance costs within a 12 to 18 month period.

Pace University is currently installing the microGreen filter on its entire fleet of approximately 60 vehicles, including cars, vans and buses. Pace was part of the initial fleet testing program for the microGreen filter and the results validated the filter’s patented technology, which extends the life of engine oil through advanced filtration. During the testing period, oil samples from several vehicles were thoroughly analyzed by an independent laboratory for particulate contamination, wear metals, viscosity and overall chemistry every 3,000 miles. The test results revealed that the filter maintained oil cleanliness and oil quality over 24,000 miles without depleting the additives.

“With over 35 years of experience in maintenance repair, I was fascinated when I first heard about the microGreen filter. The filter technology is a huge leap in oil maintenance, yet is contained in a standard spin-on canister so it is easy to install and use. I was interested enough to initiate testing on a few vehicles, and at each testing interval, the laboratory reports clearly showed the product was truly remarkable,” said Andrew Mendola, shift supervisor for Pace University’s Department of Transportation. “Pace University has a clear mission of becoming environmentally-friendly, and the microGreen filter is helping us reach that goal. We will cut the amount of filters we dispose of in half and reduce our oil disposal by over 70% – all this while reducing our oil and filter maintenance costs.”

Pace University’s fleet of vehicles are used by university employees for internal departments and student shuttle services between campuses or to student activities. As the first university to implement the microGreen filter, this deployment underscores the university’s commitment to preserving the environment through sustainable practices.

“Pace University is paving the way for universities, and other fleets, to adopt environmentally-friendly practices while reducing maintenance costs, and we are excited to be a part of this initiative,” said Miles Flamenbaum, CEO of SOMS Technologies. “SOMS developed the microGreen filter to provide an eco-friendly, cost-saving alternative to vehicle maintenance and we are fulfilling this mission through fleets such as Pace University.”

The microGreen oil filter launched in October 2008 and is compatible with vehicles equipped with a traditional spin-on oil filter canister. It is now sold through authorized distributors across the U.S. and online at www.microgreenfilter.com.

About SOMS Technologies LLC

SOMS (Spin-On Microfilter System™) Technologies has pioneered the most significant breakthrough in engine oil filtration technology since the early 1970s. Developed by SOMS, the microGreen™ Extended Performance Oil Filter significantly reduces maintenance costs for both individual vehicles and fleets, and protects our environment by eliminating hazardous waste and decreasing dependence on natural resources. The microGreen oil filter combines 2 filters in 1, providing a clean technology that dramatically improves filtration efficiency, allowing vehicles to operate up to 8 times the standard change interval without changing the engine oil. The microGreen oil filter has recently been introduced to the market and has been overwhelmingly accepted by leading national and local fleets. The microGreen filter is protected by 2 U.S. patents and has additional U.S. and international patents pending. The company is headquartered in Valhalla, New York.
