WILTON, CT, February 27, 2007 --/WORLD-WIRE/--
Startech Environmental Corporation (OTCBB: STHK), a fully reporting company, announced today that Popular Science Magazine, in its March '07 issue now on the news stands, has produced a 9-page, well-illustrated feature article on the Startech Plasma Converter as the "Miracle Energy Machine - How to Turn Toxic Waste into Clean Power."

Joseph F. Longo, Startech president said, "The response to the piece continues to be enormous, and very favorable. However, because of few clarifying questions asked in phone calls, I felt we should produce this message.

"Several months ago, Popular Science magazine reached out for Startech to do a feature article on the Company. In addition to their own due-diligence, the lengthy interviews and conferences I have had with various Popular Science editors and writers over the months since then have resulted in a well-illustrated 9-page feature article in the March 07 issue.

"The writer took some good-natured liberties to help lighten the reading of what could have been a somewhat dry technology story. The writer, the photographer and the editors have my compliments and thanks in making an otherwise confounding subject interesting, understandable and, most of all, relevant."

He also said, "Among the thousands of words in the piece, there were a very few inaccuracies, that are probably not noticeable except to those closest to Startech, and probably not worth fussing about. Nevertheless, I would be happy to receive a phone call or an e-mail on the piece."

"Award winning Popular Science magazine has chronicled science and technology since 1872. It is a monthly magazine, published in English, with a readership of more than seven million people."

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 most 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 inorganics, 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, is its use to produce "green electrical power," Gas-To-Liquid (GTL) fuels such as ethanol, synthetic diesel fuel and other higher alcohol "alternative" 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 feedstocks that were previously regarded as wastes.

Startech regards all wastes, hazardous and non-hazardous, as valuable renewable resources.
