Clean Power Technologies Inc. ("Clean Power" or the "Company"); Operational Developments and Eight-Fold Expansion of Facilities

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - Clean Power Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: CPWE) (XETRA: C1L), developer of a unique heat recovery and hybrid power system to reduce vehicle emissions, is pleased to provide an update of operations at its facilities in East Sussex, England.

The Company has made substantial developments during the summer months. Highlights include the delivery of a Caterpillar C18 diesel engine which is now fully installed and operational within a test cell. This test cell encloses the trial engines and components at full operating pressure and temperature. The main experimental programme begins this month and aims to increase the power output of the Wankel engines in a test vehicle. The first phase of testing consists of a detailed determination of the performance of the Caterpillar engine over its full range of speed and load. This will provide a database for control system operation and detailed design of subsequent builds of the accumulator system with logged measurements of air and fuel rates of flow, fluid pressures, temperatures and power output. The first results are scheduled for the beginning of October.

Work continues on the rotary Wankel-type steam engines where the engineering team has established a control engine using the Mazda RX-8. Redesigned steam input values for the engine have been modified to control the vapour flow to the accumulator. Results from this phase will provide the statistical evidence of the convenience with which the unit can produce power from an independent fluid source.

Abdul Mitha, President and CEO of Clean Power, said: "These developments are particularly encouraging as we look to commercialise our unique technology. Ultimately we will be able to increase fuel mileage and efficiency for realistic fuel savings of up to 40%, with the additional advantage of cleaner emissions."

The Company is also preparing to move into new and larger neighbouring premises. Clean Power's current facility consists of a 2,000-square-foot building and, given the Company's continued progress, the facility is deemed insufficient. Accordingly, Clean Power saw an opportunity to acquire a 17,142-square-foot building within the same complex and has negotiated to acquire this same building with possession from February 2008. The management of Clean Power has further agreed to lease this facility, effective from 1 October 2007, and will progress with the relocation of administration from this date. The new acquisition will enable CPTI to work on multiple projects with increased manpower and with additional new test cell.

"The current facility will be turned into a consultancy business opportunity for vehicle manufacturing companies and we anticipate that this will start to generate revenue in the third quarter of 2008," added Mr. Mitha. He continued, "By increasing our facility space by over 800% we are able to rapidly expand our development process for what will be the first of a new generation of energy-efficient storage systems that are able to recover otherwise wasted energy from conventional combustion engines."

Notes to Editors

Clean Power Technologies is committed to developing hybrid fuel technology and alternative fuel for a range of vehicles, including locomotives, heavy trucks and light cars. The Company's proprietary technology significantly reduces pollution through its Clean Energy Storage and Recovery (CESAR) system, which takes otherwise wasted heat from the exhaust of a conventional combustion engine and modifies it through a heat recovery system to generate clean power for the vehicle.

The Company boasts a highly experienced engineering team, whose vision and technical capabilities are driving the development and implementation of this unique hybrid fuel technology.

Clean Power Technologies operates out of its development facility in East Sussex. In 2006, testing began on a Mazda RX8 engine with testing on a second identical engine commencing later that year. Results to date have been very positive, and it is anticipated that, by the end of 2007, following the successful completion of these tests, the Company's steam accumulator will be fitted into a Mazda RX8 and will be road-tested. In June 2007 testing also began on a Caterpillar C18 diesel engine for ultimate applications within the industrial vehicle and truck industries.

The Company listed on XETRA on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in October 2006, and is also traded on the OTC BB in the US. Clean Power Technologies has a market capitalisation of US$82 million.
