ShengdaTech Receives Patent Approval for Advanced NPCC Technology

Monday, December 17, 2007

Taian City, China -- ShengdaTech Inc. ("ShengdaTech" or "the Company") a leading manufacturer of nano precipitated calcium carbonate ("NPCC") and coal-based chemical products in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced the Company's patent application for its membrane dispersion technology used to manufacture NPCC has been approved by the State Intellectual Property Office of the PRC. The patent number is ZL200510086388.2 and is under protection of PRC patent law for 20 years.

"We are pleased to receive the patent for our membrane dispersion technology. Since the commercialization of our membrane dispersion technology at the end of 2006, we have improved the quality and consistency of NPCC particles, lowered our production cost and increased our market penetration," commented Mr. Chen, CEO of ShengdaTech. "We believe this demonstrates our success in implementing this advanced technology and our ability to continue increasing our market penetration in current and new applications."

The membrane-dispersion technology was co-developed by ShengdaTech and Tsinghua University, the leading science university in the PRC. ShengdaTech and Tsinghua University each has 50% ownership of the technology, while ShengdaTech has sole commercialization rights to all applications using the technology. The membrane dispersion technology enhances the use of carbon dioxide, producing NPCC particles that are more stable. The result is a better quality NPCC product due to the improvement in particle size, uniformity and distribution, which translates into better manufactured end products. ShengdaTech believes the NPCC products produced using this cutting- edge technology will define the international standard for NPCC particles as the Company targets higher-end markets for NPCC applications.
