PANAMA CITY, Panama, February 15, 2007 --/WORLD-WIRE/--
Sicmar International Panama announces the First Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study submitted on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2007 for the Plasma Converter System from StarTech Environmental Corp. and Electrical Generation Plant to be developed in Las Tablas, Republic of Panama.

What is an EIA? It is a comprehensive study of how the Plasma Converter System (StarTech Environmental Corp.) and whole plant, including the electrical generation, affects the environment in the location where it is to be built.

This was fully financed by Sicmar International Panama. The facility being a closed loop system and extremely environmentally compatible, we in Panama feel that the conclusion will be favorable in the next several weeks. There are no adverse environmental issues.

This technology only enhances the environment, by cleaning up the past, present and future garbage problem.

The facility, once up and running, will be the first in the history of mankind and is the kind of project that the Kyoto Protocol was designed for.

Decreasing noxious gases that are destroying the environment through horrible Landfills and Incinerators, this is the only real option in Panama.

About Startech -- The Environment and Energy Company

Startech Environmental is an environment and energy industry company engaged in the production and sale of its innovative, proprietary plasma processing equipment known as the Plasma Converter System™. The Plasma Converter System safely and economically destroys wastes, no matter how hazardous or lethal, and turns them into useful and valuable products. In doing so, the System protects the environment and helps to improve the public health and safety.

The System achieves closed-loop elemental recycling to safely and irreversibly destroy Municipal Solid Waste, organics and inorganic, solids, liquids and gases, hazardous and non-hazardous waste, industrial by-products and also items such as "e-waste," medical waste, chemical industry waste and other specialty wastes while converting many of them into useful commodity products that can include metals and a synthesis-gas called Plasma Converted Gas (PCG)™.

Among the many commercial uses for PCG, it can be used to produce "green power electricity," Gas-To-Liquid (GTL) fuels such as ethanol, synthetic diesel fuel and other higher alcohol fuels. Hydrogen, for use and sale, can also be separated and recovered from the PCG synthesis gas mixture.

The Startech Plasma Converter is essentially a manufacturing system producing commodity products from feedstock that were previously regarded as wastes. Startech regards all wastes, hazardous and non-hazardous, as valuable renewable resources.
