Planet Resource Recovery, Inc. Successfully Proves New Technology to Remediate Cadmium Laced Water

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - Planet Resource Recovery, Inc. (PLANET) (PINKSHEETS: PRRY), developer, manufacturer and marketer of PetroLuxus™ and other "Green" technologies for the remediation and recovery of the planet's resources, is pleased to announce the successful remediation of cadmium laced water with its new technology. Utilizing newly developed proprietary compounds and process, the successful proof of concept opens a new environmental remediation market for the company. The company anticipates that this new technology may additionally be used to remediate waters contaminated with mercury, lead and zinc.

Cadmium is an extremely toxic metal to humans. Toxicity of cadmium has been linked to a number of health conditions such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Cadmium is considered more toxic than lead and mercury. Cadmium concentrates in the kidneys, liver and various other organs. Human exposure to cadmium toxicity is increasing globally due to a growing number of cadmium uses. Cadmium is commonly used in coatings of iron, steel and copper. It is used in copper alloys, fungicides, stabilizers in rubber and plastics and many other products. The manufacturers of these products often end up polluting water.

PLANET's Director of Technology, Dr. Hal Potts, and his staff designed and developed a new proprietary solution and an innovative process to precipitate the targeted metal. The first round of testing targeted cadmium. EPA standards for acceptable count of cadmium in water is 5 parts per billion. This new technology has been designed to drop the Cadmium count to and below 5 parts per billion. The company anticipates filing for protection of Intellectual Property rights for the newly designed reactor vessels and process controls.

Further testing will be conducted in the near future on other common toxic metals of mercury, lead and zinc.
