MOPN Shares Elevated to Current Information Tier on OTC Markets

BATH, NH--(Marketwire - March 4, 2011) -  MOP Environmental Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MOPN). has elevated its OTC Tier to "Current Information." The company's comprehensive information and current activities are now up to date and available.

What it means to Be Current

"Companies that follow the International Reporting Standard or the Alternative Reporting Standard by making filings publicly available through the OTC Disclosure & News Service pursuant to OTC Markets Group Guidelines for Providing Adequate Current Information are designated as OTC Pink Current Information," according to OTC Markets. "This is a benefit to the Company and its shareholders since shareholders can now see detailed information on the financial results of the Company's operations and disclosures relating to its financial policies. Hence, existing and new investors can judge and measure the progress of their investment with greater transparency," said Charles Diamond, Chairman & CEO of MOP Environmental Solutions, Inc. He continued noting, "The Company's full disclosure year-end financial statements for 2008 and 2009 are now available and we are preparing the 2010 statements to be filed by April 15, 2011."

Mr. Diamond further continued: "Since I became involved with MOP, my two primary goals were to position the MOPN.PK products at the forefront of the oil spill response and remediation market and to provide an increase in value and transparency for shareholders."

The OTC Markets, Current Information Tier has over 45 Million in average dollar volume -- 3 times greater than our prior Limited Information Tier. Shareholders will now be able to trade in greater liquidity as they enter a new level of investment possibilities. 

This new Tier should open the door for more broker dealers and larger brokerages to further expand trading in the Company's common stock. 

Highlights from the Company's Disclosures

Highlights from the postings include the Company's CEO's recent filings for International and Domestic patents on its RESCUE (Rapid Environmental Soil Cleanup Equipment) process for recovering oil from oil contaminated soil. As a result of these filing, an Intellectual Property License, Royalty and Option Agreement was signed between the Company and the CEO which provided an exclusive license to the Company to utilize the CEO's Technology worldwide until December 31, 2030 and an option for either party to transfer some or all of the Technology at 90% of Market Value, to be determined by an independent appraisal.

The Company also stated it "continues to develop opportunities beyond manufacturing and distribution towards a comprehensive provider of oil spill remediation materials and services. In the 3rd Quarter 2010, the Company entered an agreement with Homeland Environmental Logistical Partners, Ltd., to carry each others' products and to collaborate on ventures and spill response. In addition, the Company developed competitively priced and environmentally sustainable oil tanker spill kits for compliance with United States federal regulations found at 33 CFR §155. The product line was also expanded to include warehouse spill kits, school spill kits and mobile spill response kits. Additional advancements for the MOP technologies and processes, include MOP RESCUE (Rapid Environmental Soil Clean Up Equipment) and related MOP patent work on an ongoing basis."

While actively engaged in various aspects of the Gulf Oil Spill, the Company presented "The Case for 'MOP Maximum Oil Pickup' as the best option, 'FIRST RESPONSE' for oil spills in testimony to the United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship for Gulf Coast Oil Cleanup."

One current opportunity is Ecuador, where 18 billion gallons of liquid hydrocarbon contaminated land is now in need of remediation and is one of that country's highest priorities. The photos included below show how the second cargo-container load of MOP, shipped in January 2011, is already being used there. Discussions are underway with MOP's Ecuador distributor who wishes to expand operations through the use of MOP Cannons and the new MOP RESCUE system to clean more and larger areas more quickly. To underscore the extent of the problem there, on February 14, 2011 a judgment was handed down by a judge in Lago Agrio, a provincial capital near the Colombian border, which ordered Chevron to pay $8.6 billion and an equal amount in punitive damages, according to the ruling obtained and reported by Bloomberg. The judgment stemmed from an 18-year-old lawsuit that alleged Texaco Inc. dumped chemical-laden wastewater in the Amazon River basin from 1964 to 1992.
