TOLEDO, Ohio, Oct. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- N-Viro International Corporation (NVIC) announces after 22 years of providing the City of Toledo with a Class A biosolids program, Toledo City Council with an 8 to 3 vote chose a Class B blending and disposal option this week. The decision provides for approximately 50,000 wet tons of Class B biosolids to be dumped and blended on a 70 acre site located within a Confined Disposal Facility (CDF) within the Maumee Bay at the westernmost point of Lake Erie. This facility was constructed decades ago by the Army Corps of Engineers to dispose of contaminated river spoils dredged from the Toledo shipping channel. Despite strong objections to this choice because of the potential for environmental damage, the City of Toledo has made its decision. A letter from CEO/President Timothy R. Kasmoch to the Toledo City Council and others can be viewed on the home page of our Company website under latest news.
Mr. Kasmoch had these remarks; "A well managed Class B program can be beneficial. I do not believe this is a well managed program. In fact I believe this decision is completely detrimental to the health and welfare of the Maumee Bay and Lake Erie because of the potential of pathogen leaching and phosphorus contamination resulting in elevated toxic algae growth. Despite the loss in revenue this will represent, management has implemented a plan for adjustment and future growth elsewhere. N-Viro is moving forward with its N-Viro Fuel™ technology. In my opinion, the City of Toledo moved its biosolids program in the opposite direction in one hasty decision." Kasmoch concluded, "we don't believe the City of Toledo understands the seriousness of this decision."

Special Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
The Company cautions that words used in this document such as "expects," "hopes", "anticipates," "believes" and "may," as well as similar words and expressions used herein, identify and refer to statements describing events that may or may not occur in the future. These forward-looking statements and the matters to which they refer are subject to considerable uncertainty that may cause actual results to differ materially from those described herein. For example, while the Company expects business expansion projects to begin in an estimated time frame, such expectations are subject to adverse economic conditions and other factors outside of the Company's control. Further, the Company's ability to increase capabilities and expand capacity is subject to the ability of the Company or its partners to access sufficient capital to pay for this expansion, which will further depend on, among other factors, market acceptance. The Company's ability to achieve profitability of these projects could be negatively impacted if there is a lack of an adequate supply of waste or expenses increase above the Company's expectations - including fuel and transportation costs, labor costs and costs relating to the treatment and processing of the biosolids and creation of the N-Viro Soil or N-Viro Fuel. In addition, while the Company believes that trends in "greener" energy solutions are moving in favor of the Company's technology, such trends may not continue or may never result in increased sales or profits to the Company because of the availability of competing products and other alternative energy source. All of these factors, and other factors, will affect the profitability of the Company. Additional information about these and other factors that may adversely affect these forward-looking statements are contained in the Company's reports, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting forward-looking information except to the extent required by applicable securities laws.
