SSTP's Vertroleum® Gas Suitable for Use in Siemens Gas Turbine Generators

SSTP Has Created a Total Energy Solution Turning 'Trash to Gas to Cash'

BAYTOWN, TX--(Marketwire - November 11, 2008) - Sustainable Power Corp. (PINKSHEETS: SSTP) announced today that Siemens Energy USA has advised that based upon the specifications obtained, SSTP's Vertroleum® natural gas product can be employed in Siemens' combustion turbine generators. Siemens gas turbines generators are utilized in electric generation facilities not only throughout the United States, but throughout the world. Siemens provides complete electrical, engineering and automation solutions in hundreds of locations. Based on the AMSPEC reports obtained on the product, SSTP gas can be employed in Siemens combustion generators for the production of electricity.

Traditional methods for utilization of municipal solid waste include landfills, which produce methane gas at a rate of approximately 20 kWh per ten tons and incineration generators which produce approximately 5,200 kWh per ten tons of waste. The SSTP process produces more than 50,000 kWh from the same ten tons of municipal solid waste.

"We are pleased that Siemens has confirmed the ability to employ our gas products in their combustion turbines and appreciate their support and interest in our process," stated M. Richard Cutler, CEO of Sustainable Power. "As we continue to build partnerships with key players in the energy business, we will quickly be in a position to make SSTP a keystone in the electricity business throughout the country."

Robert Jones, Sales Manager at Siemens Energy, advised, "I witnessed the SSTP process and reviewed the specification reports from AMSPEC. Not surprisingly, our combustion engineers found the gas specification to be quite suitable under adequate volume and pressure. I am pleased with the progress demonstrated by SSTP of taking waste and turning it into a commercially viable fuel."
