January 25, 2006

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 25, 2006--Veridium Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: VRDM) today announced its plans to showcase its new Dissolved Air Flotation ("DAF") sludge recycling and Tornado Generator(TM) technologies at the 2006 International Poultry Expo this week in Atlanta, Georgia.

While the applications for Veridium's technologies extend across many industries, Veridium's first target is livestock and poultry processing facilities. Veridium's proprietary DAF sludge processing and Tornado Generator(TM) technologies can quickly enable significant improvements in process efficiencies for these facilities.

Dissolved Air Flotation Sludge Recycling

Veridium's proprietary DAF sludge processing technology that effectively reduces the volume of DAF sludge by 80% while recovering the majority of the animal fats contained in the waste of livestock and poultry processing facilities. Poultry processing facilities alone generate an estimated 500 million gallons per year of this sludge. Our technology enables livestock and poultry processing facilities to dramatically reduce the volume of sludge they are shipping and disposing. This translates to reduced costs and increased profitability for livestock and poultry processing facilities.
