EcoPlus Addresses Democratic Leaders at National League of Cities in Washington, DC

Alternative Energy From Fats, Oils and Grease Draws Interest From Officials

CHARLOTTE, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 15, 2007 -- Ed Miles, VP of Sales and Marketing for EcoPlus (PINKSHEETS: ECPL), addressed an audience of over 400 government leaders at a breakfast sponsored by EcoPlus for Democratic Municipal Officers at the National League of Cities conference in Washington, DC on March 13. Also addressing these government leaders were 2008 presidential candidate and Senator from New York, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Democratic National Committee Chairman and Past Governor of Vermont, Howard Dean.

Mr. Miles spoke on problems plaguing our national sewer infrastructure: impacts from contamination from sewer overflow and current strategies to handle fats, oils and grease infiltration into collection systems. He concluded his address by describing the EcoPlus waste to energy process for sewer grease.

"I was overwhelmed with the response and interest from the attendees," quotes Miles. Additionally, Miles noted, "Municipal officials are well aware that with landfills refusing to take grease, intake of this waste has become a major headache for wastewater plant operators, who are often seen as the last legal alternative for disposal. But wastewater plants are continuing to turn away hauled waste due to the costs associated with processing. Administrators are recognizing that they can't demand more frequent servicing and collection of this waste without giving haulers a cost effective disposal option. EcoPlus presents a strong, alternative processing program with the benefits of an alternative energy, green fuel by-product."
