Bambeck Systems Inc. Awarded Contract to Provide Technology on Heaters at Valero's Refineries

Santa Ana, California, Jan. 13, 2003 -- Bambeck Systems Inc. announced today that it was awarded a contract by Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE: VLO) to provide its technology on 84 heaters at 11 of Valero’s refineries. The technology reduces greenhouse gas emissions and improves heater combustion efficiency. The agreement with Valero, a leading North American refiner based in San Antonio, Texas, is part of the company’s energy efficiency improvement program. Installation is to begin immediately and continue over the next few years.

“This is a win-win situation because this technology enables us to lower our energy usage, while also reducing NOx and greenhouse gas emissions from stationary combustion sources in our refineries,” said John Hohnholt, Senior Vice President, Technology, Planning & Development.

The Bambeck Technology is an advanced method of controlling the process heater combustion using a fast CO light-beam analyzer measurement as a direct control point. This technology reduces NOx emissions and inherently reduces the greenhouse gas CO2 emissions. Bambeck manufactures the pre-packaged CO based controls and installs it as a turnkey project to implement low excess-air control of refinery heaters and boilers.

These systems are designed, engineered and manufactured at the company's factory and general offices in Orange County, California.
