    EUROTECH, Ltd. Announces New Explosives Screening Portal Product Development
    to Enhance Security


    FAIRFAX, Va., January 24, 2002 --EUROTECH, Ltd., (AMEX: EUO), reported
    that development of an explosives screening portal product based on its
    proprietary Acoustic Core� technology is currently in progress. The new
    screening portal is intended to combine the functions of metal detection
    and explosives detection into a single product. The device is expected
    to look and function very similarly to existing airport metal detector
    portals commonly used throughout the world, but it will have the added
    capability of screening for explosives. The product will be designed to
    work at the same rate of speed of existing metal detectors allowing free
    flow of passenger traffic.

    The Company is currently in various stages of discussion with established
    security industry companies regarding Acoustic Core� technology as part
    of an overall strategy to achieve market penetration through strategic
    alliances.

    The screening device will provide computerized automatic screening of
    humans, their clothing and footwear, for metal and explosive devices.
    The technology is ideally suited for primary screening applications where
    humans require screening and high rates of traffic require automated computer
    controlled detection.

    The portal's proprietary Acoustic Core� spectral analysis package quantitativel
    y analyzes technology acoustic properties of screened objects, which produce
    an acoustic fingerprint. This acoustic fingerprint based on the material
    spectral acoustic properties of impedance, sound velocity and absorption
    will allow a computer to be programmed to automatically detect illicit
    materials such as plastic explosives. Transmitting a short wide bandwidth
    burst of acoustic energy; receiving the returned acoustic energy and processing
    the returned acoustic energy utilizing tools obtain the acoustic fingerprint.
    The product development is expected to take about six months to complete.
    The expectation is that the prototype will exhibit characteristics, which
    allow the product to obtain FAA certification.

    The publication Aviation Security International (October 2000 Edition)
    stated, "In the same way that access control systems (biometrics and card)
    can now be integrated with metal detection to facilitate the movement
    of staff into restricted areas, so too the aim must now be for the manufacturer
    s of metal detection and explosive detection and passenger X-ray technologies
    to continue to work tighter to develop fully integrated screening portals
    that combine the different detection methodologies."

    In addition to this self-funded product development, the Company submitted
    four other proposals to the Department of Defense, all focused on primary
    screening applications for illicit materials such as explosives, biohazards
    and nuclear radioactive compounds.

    • Her dolls? You're kiddin' me. She ripped the heads off her dolls.

      imho

    • "I believe it was my Mom that sold my set at a garage sale while I was away at college - a set that I had safely stored for future use with my then unborn child."

      Do you want to buy it back :-)

      Train people are much, much worse than investors. If they see a train, they just
      have to buy it.

      Regards,
      Roger

    • your mom sold your train ;0((
      my steppmom sold all my clothes
      how about your dolls?
      i never had a train

    • I appreciate the sentiment and sincerity - it was very evident in your latest "typed" message. My posts are taken as bashing by those that continue to pump this stock to unsuspecting investors. I do have fun with idiots like Cabo and Gismys, but that is too easy and should probably be left off the board too. "NO WORRIES MATES" and "KEEP THE FAITH" have the same effect on me as someone running their fingernails down a chalkboard. Sorry about the crack about the toy trains. I believe it was my Mom that sold my set at a garage sale while I was away at college - a set that I had safely stored for future use with my then unborn child.

    • I hate typed messages. They can always be
      misunderstood.

      I didn't "acuse" you of shorting. I just asked
      you the question. I honestly don't care whether
      you or short or long, I have friends that routinely short stocks, and I don't take them outback
      and shoot them for that. If it wasn't for the
      shorters I probably couldn't buy shares so
      cheap. No heart burn there.

      As for you posting the facts, keep it up please. I meant I don't need any help
      analyzing the facts, but it is amazing just
      how much fact can be found on these boards and
      no where else.

      And, I didn't mean that you were a basher either. But that there are bashers and
      pumpers on this board.

      Put you on ignore? Why?

      As for "toy trains" - hey, now...your playing
      with the love of my life there :-)

      Honestly no harm meant.
      Roger

    • You say "all I want are the facts." I post them, then you say you don't need any help. Then you acuse me of shorting a $0.32 stock (which I believe is an imposibility). Finaly, you call me a basher for posting the truth. I would agree that you are "perfectly capable of screwing thing up" on your own. Go back to that which you are oh so familiar - your toy trains. If you don't like my DD, then put me on ignore. imho

      Although possibly optimistic (maybe not)....
      Help me here...I've run out of fingers....

      January 24th + 6 months = ???

      Should be an update sometime in the near future.
