VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2009) -

Editor's Note: There are three photos associated with this press release.

Valcent Products Inc. (the "Company", or "Valcent") (OTCBB:VCTZF), www.valcent.net, today illustrates the progress with the enclosed pictures taken on September 02, showing the VertiCrop(TM) system growing endive, leafy and red lettuce that are now two weeks old, and will be ready for harvesting while planting its second crop starting late next week. Valcent EU is pleased to report the company's vertical farming System has been successfully in continuous operation while growing its first crop which will be yielding important data in support of pending sales from initial customers from around the world.

Valcent EU is planning a VertiCrop(TM) Launch on September 30th at the Paignton Zoo which will be well attended by the media, customers, local dignitaries, and many people from the industry as well as Zoo patrons. Three hundred people are expected at the launch, including some officials from the parent company Valcent Products Inc as well as other shareholders. Pictures and a short video will be on the parent company's web site early October recording the event.

Chris Bradford, Managing Director of Valcent EU, noted, "all the subcontractors that were engaged in building the first VertiCrop(TM) System did a terrific job and within budget and delivered on time. More importantly, this means that the Company and its contractors have worked well together and can now assemble and ship commercial size VertiCrop(TM) units in a seamless manner."

Kevin Frediani, plant curator at the Zoo also noted, "we are confident that the VertiCrop(TM) System will produce a variety of vegetables and crops at a great cost savings for the Zoo, with the added value of producing fresh and more nutritious food on a year round basis."
