Envirepel clean renewable energy facility to reopen

VISTA – Envirepel Energy, Inc. (EEI), a privately held company in Vista, Calif., announced March 11 that it plans to reopen its first Renewable Energy Facility (Kittyhawk) by the middle of April 2010, after temporarily closing it in June 2009 to address a shareholder proxy effort.

The Kittyhawk Project is a 2.5 mega watts biomass fueled power generating facility, with additional bio-fuel production from recovered water and CO2. The “anti-global warming” and virtually non-polluting facility design was permitted and built in the middle of a commercial business park. Kittyhawk sets the stage for many additional environmentally friendly facilities to be developed and financed. “By ensuring that the facility doesn’t give off any significant amounts of pollution, EEI has shown that we can obtain very difficult permits where others cannot,” said Anthony J. Arand, the Company’s Founder, Chairman and CEO.

“I’m very happy to announce that we plan to have our team back to work by the middle of next month, so that we can complete commercial operations of the power plant and the initial bio-fuel production by the fourth quarter of this year. If our CO2 recovery and bio-fuel production technology is successful, then potentially five percent or more of the nation’s energy needs could be produced with our process from our country’s post recycled landfill waste supply,” said Arand.

The California Public Utilities Commission has called EEI “the answer” to California’s need for clean renewable energy. EEI would also help to satisfy Governor Schwarzenegger’s mandate that renewable energy comprise 20 percent of the electrical energy portfolios of California’s utility companies by the end of 2010.

Over the past six years, EEI has designed, developed, manufactured and built the first low emissions combustion system. This ultra-low combustion system consumes urban waste that would normally go in a landfill, and also has the capacity to consume high sulfur coal, tires, animal waste and many other “biomass” feed stocks that would pose a significant pollution problem to other power generating or bio-fuel production facilities.

The company has over 300 mega watts of projects in various stages of development in San Diego and Imperial Counties. These project sites include business parks, rural agricultural areas, and metropolitan landfill sites. EEI’s website is
