HyPower Fuel Files Additional Biodiesel Patents to Protect Its Green Technology

WILMINGTON, DE--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) - HyPower Fuel Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HYPF) today announced that it has filed for patent pending status in numerous additional countries to protect its novel, waterless biodiesel production process. The patent protection is being pursued in order to allow HyPower to formalize and execute its comprehensive worldwide sales and marketing strategy for the process.

HyPower has filed for patent protection in all primary biodiesel producing countries including South Korea, Malaysia, China, Indonesia, India, Canada, United States of America, Brazil, Croatia and Europe. The protection sought under the European Patent Cooperation Treaty is unique in that it potentially covers multiple countries in the European Union. Translation of patents into a number of languages is being undertaken as part of the patent application process.

"Given the increasing awareness of HyPower's unique biodiesel process and the high degree of interest shown in our technology around the world, securing adequate patent protection has become a priority," stated Mr. Douglas Bender, CEO of HyPower Fuel. "We now feel much more confident in being able to share critical, confidential information with potential purchasers."

With the patent application process substantially complete, HyPower announces that Robert Donick has left the company as an advisor and consultant to further his other business interests.
