Clyvia Successfully Completes Large-Scale Trial Run for Converting Plastics into Diesel

POINT ROBERTS, WASHINGTON--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 9, 2006) - Clyvia Inc. (OTCBB:CLYV) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Clyvia Technology GmbH ("Clyvia Technology"), successfully converted 3 metric tons (approximately 3.3 US tons) of plastics into 2,000 liters (approximately 528 US gal.) of diesel fuel. These test results are in addition to the results announced yesterday by Clyvia with respect to Clyvia Technology's successful large scale trial run for manufacturing diesel out of waste oils.

In this latest test run, a mixture of three kinds of plastics were used: plastic sheeting used for agricultural purposes, industrial waste plastics produced during the manufacture of electric fencing, and plastic materials sorted from domestic waste collection. These materials were first heated to a temperature of 270 degreesC and then fed into Clyvia Technology's pilot plant reactor. Once inside the reactor, the plastics were subjected to the fractional depolymerization process developed by Clyvia Technology, a process that is similar in operation to the cracking of crude oil.

Initial gas-chromatographic analysis of the resulting product has shown that the fuel produced meets the quality requirements for diesel and heating fuel. A sample batch has been submitted to an independent accredited research laboratory in order to confirm that the resulting product conforms with DIN (German standardization) norms.

Although the test run was conducted using a mixture of different types of plastics, Clyvia Technology expects that, once the plant begins permanent operations, the various types of plastics will be processed individually. Isolating the different types of plastics will allow Clyvia Technology greater control over the quality of the output product produced.

Once Clyvia Technology's large scale waste oil and plastics trial runs were completed, the pilot plant's reactor was dismantled in order to conduct a functional diagnostic of the reactor parts. In addition, Clyvia Technology will conduct tests on the individual residues inside the reactor and will check for deposits that may have formed on the interior of the reactor. Once these diagnostics have been completed, Clyvia Technology will attempt to determine if the production process can be even further refined before the plant is once again put into operation.

Clyvia Technology GmbH is a subsidiary of Clyvia Inc., a Nevada, USA corporation. Clyvia's shares are traded on over-the-counter market in the United States (OTCBB:CLYV) as well as on the stock market in Frankfurt (WKN:A0F59X, ISIN:US18975K1088).

This Press Release may contain, in addition to historical information, forward-looking statements. These forward looking statements are based on management's expectations and beliefs, and may involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results to be materially different from the results implied herein. In particular, readers are cautioned that Clyvia Technology is still in the process of developing recycling/processing systems based on its fractional depolymerization technology. Clyvia Technology has not yet developed any commercially marketable recycling/processing systems and there are no assurances that it will be able to do so in the future. Furthermore, there are no assurances that independent laboratory tests will confirm that the fuel produced during the above trial run will comply with standardized requirements for diesel fuel.

Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements made in this Press Release.
