Clean Green Cyclone Power Technologies Makes Big Impact at Small Engine Conference

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CYPW) returned to Florida on Monday after making a major impact in Milwaukee, WI, at the Small Engine Technology Conference.

Among the highlights of the show was Cyclone's second generation waste heat engine (WHE), a six-cylinder, 10kW engine capable of running on temperatures as low as 225 degrees from solar thermal collectors. The company is currently testing the prototype WHE Solar System, which it hopes to introduce to consumers in 2009 at a substantially reduced cost from photovoltaic (PV) systems -- initial estimates are under $4 per watt before tax credits and other incentives, as opposed to $6 to $8 per watt for comparable PV systems.

The company also announced results of greenhouse gas emissions testing conducted on its 3HP propane-fueled engine. Such results provided strong support that Cyclone's engine will beat the recently released Environmental Protection Agency regulations requiring a 35 percent reduction in emissions from new lawn and garden equipment beginning by 2011, but without additional cost to the consumer.

"It all comes down to cost," stated Harry Schoell, the company's CEO and founder. "Initiatives to clean-up the environment through the promotion of renewable energy and enactment of tighter emissions standards will be far less successful if the cost to consumers is too high."

"We believe the Cyclone Engine has the perfect combination of high environmental impact at low manufacturing and maintenance costs," Schoell added.

In addition to showcasing several of its clean, green small engines, Cyclone was featured on the front page of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Sept. 9, and was profiled on Milwaukee's ABC news affiliate, WISN, on Sept. 14.
