Consolidated Ecoprogress Technology Inc.: US Homeland Security Trials Flushaway

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 16, 2006) -

Mr John Banks reports:

Consolidated Ecoprogress Technology Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CES) is pleased to announce that Homeland Security has commenced a trial of Flushaway™. This has been arranged by our distributor SPD.

Over a period of approximately six weeks, the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization of Homeland Security, a branch of the US Government, is conducting trials of Flushaway's™ sanitary napkins in one of its women's prisons. The trial is testing Flushaway™ in the prison setting to evaluate the flushable advantage of this product.

A successful trial of Flushaway™ products could enable Consolidated Ecoprogress be a recognized supplier to the federal prisons that fall under Homeland Security management.

Consolidated Ecoprogress looks forward to working with SPD and Homeland Security to assure that this trial meets or exceeds their requirements.

Flushaway™ pads and liners are now carried in K-Mart in the US and Priceline in Australia. Product is also available in South Africa and the US Marines Corps worldwide.

Ecoprogress is diligently working on becoming a lead player in environmentally friendly, absorbent and plastic replacement products. Its first branded product, Flushaway™, provides women with the choice of a flushable feminine hygiene product.
