"Sustainable Planet" Show to Feature Coates International, Ltd.

WALL TOWNSHIP, NJ and DEERFIELD BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - November 9, 2007) - The producers of Sustainable Planet are pleased to announce that Coates International, Ltd. (OTCBB: COTE) will be featured in an upcoming episode as part of the show's Environmental Impact series on Rising Stars in Engine Innovations to Reduce Energy Consumption and Help to Green the Globe.

When it was first invented, the internal combustion engine was considered a marvel for its time and heralded the beginning of the Industrial Age. This historic innovation has not been without its consequences: its by-product of pollutants that include carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC), oxides of nitrogen (NOX) and small particles have not only poisoned the air that we breathe; it's also been the catalyst for catastrophic changes in our climate and weather patterns. And it's not only vehicles that bear the responsibility: Coal and fossil-burning power plants contribute substantially to the harmful emissions that pollute our atmosphere.

For years, scientists and engineers have been hard at work trying to come up with a viable solution that will end our dependence on fossil fuels. As the 20th Century was drawing to a close, one company out of Delaware began the development for what would be the most promising innovation to date: the Coates Spherical Rotary Valve System (C.S.R.V.) for Internal Combustion Engines.

Led by father-and-son team George and Gregory Coates, Coates International, Ltd. has now introduced the C.S.R.V. System to the world as a replacement for the conventional poppet-valve engine. The main component to this patented system is a series of spherical valves that rotate in a cavity formed between a two-piece cylinder head. This design delivers the air and fuel mixture in a more efficient manner. The elimination of poppet valves has also eliminated the need for frequent oil changes, cam followers and camshafts, push rods, valve springs and the lubrication oil from the valve system, which dramatically extends the intervals of engine oil changes. Not only does this reduce the height of the engine, it also further reduces the need for fossil fuel products, by using alternative fuels.

Performance-wise, the Coates Spherical Rotary Valve System beats the conventional poppet valve combustion engine hands-down:

--  Higher Thermal Efficiency
--  Lower Harmful Emissions
--  Lower Fuel Consumption
--  Use of Alternative Fuels
--  Less Oil Changes
--  No Maintenance or Adjustments to the C.S.R.V. System
    

Perhaps the biggest benefit of the C.S.R.V. System is its versatility when it comes to fuels. In addition to conventional gasoline, the engine is designed to also run on eco-friendly fuels like ethanol and biodiesel... even hydrogen! Synthetic oil replaces fossil-based oil as the engine's lubricant of choice.

The applications for the Coates Spherical Rotary Valve System are as numerous as the applications for the internal combustion engine. The first C.S.R.V. engines are powering industrial natural gas electric power generators for the oil and gas industry and smaller home generators, easing the burden on our worn-out electrical grid. Future applications include cars, buses, trucks, trains, ships and military vehicles, etc.

About Coates International, Ltd.: Coates has just completed final refinements to a patented spherical rotary valve CSRV Internal Combustion Engine developed over a period of more than 15 years. The underlying CSRV technology was invented by George J. Coates and his son Gregory. The CSRV system is adaptable to combustion engines of many types. This technology is currently adapted to a number of practical applications, including industrial generators powered by engines incorporating the CSRV technology and designed to run on flare-off gas from oil wells, landfill gas and raw natural gas. The Company is actively engaged in planning for production and rollout of these engines.
