Advanced Clean Technologies, Inc. Reports Department of Energy and Department of Interior Project $77.2 Billion in 2010 Funding for Clean Energy Projects

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - November 24, 2009) - Advanced Clean Technologies (PINKSHEETS: ACTH) reported today that the Department of Energy and the Department of the Interior have proposed a total of $77.2 billion in new 2010 funding for Clean Energy projects. According to Business Green, the US renewable energy industry received a major boost recently as the release of new budget proposals from Energy Secretary Steven Chu at the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar (DOI) confirmed that billions of dollars of new investment will flow into the sector next year.

Presenting the DOE's $26.4 billion budget for fiscal year 2010, Energy Secretary Steven Chu said the new spending program reflected President Obama's "commitment to ending our dependence on foreign oil, restoring our scientific leadership and putting Americans back to work through investments in a new green energy economy."

Russ Kidder, CEO of Advanced Clean Technologies, stated, "Our recent successful testing of our clean technology for the production of Canadian and Utah oil sands is an excellent example of how well qualified our company is to apply for funding under these programs being budgeted for 2010. The APS technology for the oil reclamation and clean-up process has previously been used to complete projects for some of the largest oil and gas companies in the United States. These companies include ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Avon Petroleum, Valero Petroleum, as well as the US Navy Petroleum Reserve. We intend to apply to the Department of Energy as well as the Department of the Interior for funding of projects related to this proprietary technology."

The budget runs parallel to plans to invest a further $38.8 billion of economic stimulus spending in clean energy projects that will see a massive increase in spending on low-carbon projects, including an 83 per cent year-on-year increase in investment in solar energy projects to $145 million, a 60 per cent increase in spending on green buildings to $98 million, a 36 per cent increase in wind energy investment to $20 million and a 22 per cent increase in spending on low-carbon vehicles to $60 million.

The DOI's $12 billion budget similarly focused heavily on clean energy, including $183 million in increased funding for clean energy projects on federal land and initiatives to mitigate the impacts of unavoidable climate change. The budget came just days after interior secretary Ken Salazar unveiled plans for four new renewable energy permitting offices and a number of renewable energy teams across the country, designed to reduce red tape and accelerate the processing of applications for new renewable energy projects.
