VertiCrop's™ Second Vertical Farming Line Introduced

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 25, 2009) - Valcent Products Inc. (OTCBB:VCTZF) (the "Company", or "Valcent"), www.valcent.net, today announces the company's vertical farming expansion with the introduction of a new VertiCrop(TM) product line for use in a warehouse environment. Using the latest horticultural lighting technologies, combined with state of the art irrigation and nutrient delivery systems, Valcent Products (EU) Limited (VEU) is in the final stages of developing a commercial application of its VertiCrop(TM) High Density Vegetable Growing System suitable for installing in industrial type warehouses, as an alternative to polytunnels or glasshouses.

"A warehouse environment will provide a commercial grower with significant benefits, particularly in areas of climate extremes," said Chris Bradford, Managing Director, Valcent Products (EU). "Growing crops in a glasshouse or polytunnel can involve high energy costs to maintain stable temperatures suitable for healthy plant growth. Growing in a warehouse environment with a VertiCrop(TM) vertical farming system improves production and lower costs."

The VertiCrop(TM) research team has been working with two strategic partners who are acknowledged experts in the field of industrial lighting. This research has led to the development of a commercially viable eco-friendly system, particularly well suited to application in a warehouse environment.

The VertiCrop(TM) warehouse growing system will also use a hybrid lighting system, harnessing and channeling heat free natural daylight, complemented by the latest LED horticultural lighting technology.
