EcoPlus Continues to Find Investor Interest in Private Side Adoption of Its Alternative Fuel Technology

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - October 18, 2007) - EcoPlus, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ECPL) announces preliminary negotiations with a private side developer to establish plant locations in Virginia and the District of Columbia to process brown grease into an alternative fuel product. Up to four processing plants may be constructed if negotiations are successfully concluded. Value to EcoPlus over the life of the license could exceed $14 million.

Phil Hicks, president of EcoPlus, noted, "This package of plants with their center of gravity in northern Virginia and in the District could provide significant awareness and a higher profile of our technology and could ultimately impact beneficially public policy with respect to brown grease disposal. Currently, in many jurisdictions, conventional disposal amounts to dumping tons and tons of coal into a landfill each day. Where is the wisdom in that? The useful energy content of brown grease deserves better."
