SunSi Continues to Make Progress on Baokai Acquisition

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 7, 2010) - SunSi Energies, Inc. (the "Company") (OTCBB: SSIE), a development-stage company engaged in the acquisition of trichlorosilane (TCS) production facilities in China, today announced that it had completed all of its due diligence on the Zibo Baokai Commerce and Trade Co. Ltd. (Baokai) acquisition started in May 2010. The Company is now waiting for the issuance of the business license by Chinese local authorities to consummate the transaction. Baokai is located in Zibo city in the province of Shandong, China. Upon completion of this Baokai acquisition, SunSi Energies Hong Kong Limited will hold all of the distribution rights to the domestic and international markets on 100% of the TCS production from the ZBC plant, also located in Zibo, China. This transaction, which was expected to close by July 1st, 2010, has been delayed pending the issuance of a business license to operate. The Company expects to receive the license in September and begin generating revenues ranging from $1.0M to $1.5M per month.

As a result of the pending closing of the Baokai transaction, the company has discontinued its efforts to complete the JV for the purchase of the ZBC factory located in Zibo, China.

Michel G. Laporte, President of SunSi Energies Inc., stated, "Over the past year, we learned a great deal about the acquisition process and the TCS market in China. Although the Baokai transaction was delayed beyond our expectations, we are glad to finally move on. The latter transaction, giving us distribution rights over all of the 25,000 metric tons of ZBC's output, coupled with the potential Wendeng acquisition (LOI recently announced), where we would raise the capacity to 60,000 metric tons, will highly benefit SunSi's shareholders and the company. We believe that this efficient approach will allow for the maximization of our TCS production while minimizing our capital -- it just makes sense!"

About SunSi Energies Inc. ("SunSi")

SunSi's goal is to acquire and develop a portfolio of high quality trichlorosilane producing facilities that are strategically located, and possess a potential for future growth and expansion. Through its wholly owned subsidiary SunSi Energies Hong Kong Ltd., SunSi has executed a definitive Distribution Agreement with Baokai that entitles SunSi to distribute and sell both within and outside China all of the TCS produced at the ZBC facility. This will enable SunSi to start earning revenues.

Relatively unknown, but essential to the solar industry TCS is a chemical primarily used in the production of polysilicon, which is an essential raw material in the production of solar cells for photovoltaic (PV) panels that convert sunlight to electricity for homes, businesses and farms. TCS is considered to be the first product in the solar PV value chain before polysilicon, and is also the principal source of ultrapure silicon in the semiconductor industry. It is believed that SunSi will become the first and only "pure play" public company in the world focusing exclusively on the production and sales of TCS.

SunSi Energies Inc. is traded on the NASDAQ OTC Bulletin Board under the ticker SSIE. For additional information, please visit the Company's website: www.sunsienergies.com or call Michel G. Laporte at Tel: 646-205-0291.
