Cyclone Power Technologies Signs License to Manufacture Clean Green Lawn Equipment

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - November 26, 2007) - Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CYPW) announced today that it has entered into a License Agreement with Revgine, Inc., a technology development company based outside of Rochester, NY.

Under the terms of the license, Revgine has been granted the right to develop, manufacture and sell engines utilizing Cyclone's patented technology for use in lawn and garden equipment, such as lawn mowers, weed eaters, leaf blowers, snow blowers and chain saws. For these worldwide rights, Revgine has paid Cyclone an initial "six-figure" license fee and will pay Cyclone ongoing royalties from future engine sales.

"This license marks an important milestone for Cyclone, in terms of both our financial and technological growth," stated CEO Harry Schoell. "We see Revgine as not only our licensee, but also our development partner. We believe that with their resources and expertise, we can bring our technology to market and hit our financial projections with greater certainty."

Revgine brings to the table important technical resources and talent, including access to a modern manufacturing facility, engineering expertise in applied sciences and engine development, mechanics and machinists with a proven track record of manufacturing complex systems for commercial use, and vast material sourcing contacts.

The Revgine license covers lawn and garden equipment, a market of over $10 billion in annual sales in the United States alone, with great relevance for our environment. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has found that the 54 million Americans mowing their lawns each weekend with gas-powered mowers may be contributing as much as five percent of the nation's air pollution, and some states like California have begun to outlaw traditional internal combustion engines in lawn equipment. The engines initially contemplated under the Revgine license will be clean, propane-powered and emit far fewer pollutants or toxins into the atmosphere.

"This is the right product at the right time," added Mr. Schoell. "Let's mow!"


Cyclone holds the U.S. patent, international patent applications, and exclusive commercial rights to the Green Revolution Engine™ an environmentally-friendly and highly-efficient external combustion, heat-regenerative engine. Developed by Cyclone's President and CEO, Harry Schoell, the Cyclone engine regenerates (or recycles) its heat, which allows it to run cleaner, cooler and more efficiently than traditional internal combustion engines. The Green Revolution Engine is capable of running on any liquid or gaseous fuel, including ethanol, bio-diesel and propane. The company also recently filed a patent application for its Waste Heat Engine, a low-pressure engine capable of running on heat emitted from external sources, including the waste exhaust of a power generator or renewable solar power. Both these engines are lubricated with de-ionized water instead of motor oil, and by eliminating many subsystems like oil pumps, radiators, catalytic converters and fuel injectors, the Cyclone engines are expected to cost less to manufacture, operate and maintain. The Green Revolution Engine in particular is highly scalable and sufficiently powerful for applications ranging from lawn equipment and small home generators, large stand-alone generators, to cars, trucks, buses, RVs, boats and ships, as well as earth moving equipment and locomotives.
