Sustainable Power Corp. Turns Municipal Solid Waste Into Energy

BAYTOWN, TX--(Marketwire - September 18, 2008) - Sustainable Power Corp. (PINKSHEETS: SSTP) announced today that it has tested standard Municipal Solid Waste in the Company's reactors and not only was the company successful in producing biofuels in the process, but was able to obtain results which exceeded what it had accomplished with its other fuel stocks. The Company has already commenced discussions with substantial sources of waste.

These tests resulted in as much as 19.2 pounds of biofuels products resulting from 25 pounds of Municipal Solid Waste, with an average of 18,000 BTU per pound. This astounding result was achieved in three separate trials in which the team from Pemco participated.

"This takes Sustainable Power to a whole new level of environmental achievement," said M. Richard Cutler, CEO of Sustainable Power. "Not only will the company be able to product green energy to help alleviate the petroleum crisis, but we can also help solve the world's waste problems."

John Rivera, Chairman of SSTP, added, "By utilizing Municipal Solid Waste in our reactors, we have substantially increased potential revenue because municipalities will PAY the company to remove the waste rather than being forced to purchase feedstock to drive our reactors. Somehow I just don't think we're ever going to have a shortage of waste products to feed our process. I'm excited about this development and how we can positively impact on our future."

The Company also reports that its facilities in Baytown were not damaged when Hurricane Ike hit the Houston area. The Company has been without electrical power during and after the storm, but incurred no damage from either wind or flooding, and can get back to full operations shortly.
