SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 12, 2011) - STWA, Inc. (OTCBB: ZERO) ("STWA" or the "Company"), an innovative company creating technology focused on energy efficiency of large-scale energy production and improved fuel economy for diesel fleets, announced today that it has signed a new exclusive licensing agreement with Temple University reflecting updated technologies and terms covering intellectual property related to the Company's products.

The new licensing agreement provides for a convergent, non-divisional relationship with Temple University based largely on the grant of exclusive rights and co-ownership of future Intellectual Property (IP) through co-development. On March 28, STWA completed its final adjusted payment to Temple University covering its original obligations for its Applied Oil Technology (AOT™) for crude oil viscosity reduction and ELEKTRA™ for improved diesel engine efficiency and began negotiations with Temple to execute new licensing agreements. This technology may have a substantial impact across many industries and the Company's primary objective remains focused on bringing it to market.

Stephen G. Nappi, Director of Technology Development and Commercialization at Temple University, stated, "The signing of these agreements marks a significant milestone that will open a new chapter in our alliance. We look forward to focusing our efforts on the testing, scale-up, and commercialization of these technologies in the oil and gas industries and ultimately introducing them to the marketplace for the benefit of society. STWA's ongoing commitment to resolve outstanding payment obligations, continue the development of the crude oil and fuel injection technologies, and secure worldwide patent protection has enabled us to reach these new, exclusive license agreements."

Mr. Cecil Bond Kyte, Chairman and CEO of STWA, Inc., stated, "We worked closely with Temple University through the challenges and delays we inherited years ago, culminating today in this mutually-beneficial agreement. The success of our accomplishments is largely based on the professionalism, moderation and resolution skills of Temple University's Office of Technology Development and Commercialization, allowing both parties to benefit greatly." Mr. Kyte added, "This marks yet another significant milestone reached in the last six months. We are currently full-scale testing our AOT™ with the U.S. DOE and are currently exploring marketing and industry partners for full commercialization of our product. We would not be where we are today without the support of Temple and our partners."
