Clean Energy Technologies, Inc. Affiliate selected as USDA

Irvine, California, June 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clean Energy Technologies, Inc. (“CETY” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CETY) today announced that Vermont Renewable Gas, LLC (“VRG”), a subsidiary of CETY in which CETY indirectly owns 49%, has been selected by the United States Department of Agriculture ( USDA) as one of 171 Wood Innovations grant recipients. This $74 million initiative, administered by the USDA U.S. Forest Service, is made possible in part by the bipartisan Infrastructure and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). VRG has been selected to receive $300,000 to install and test CETY’s high-temperature fast ablative pyrolysis reactor (“HTAP Biomass Reactor”) at VRG’s planned facility in Lyndonville, Vermont. This grant will also support the plant’s operator training program.

VRG and 170 other Wood Innovation Grant recipients were selected based on their ability to drive innovation, create new markets and support renewable energy. In a public press release, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Xochitl Torres Small announced that “these investments will support good-paying jobs for families and communities.” The USDA announcement highlighted the impact the selected projects will have on producing renewable energy, promoting healthy forests, creating wildlife habitats and reducing the threat of catastrophic wildfires.

Centered around CETY’s HTAP biomass reactor technology, CETY will design, build and operate the VRG – Lyndon facility. VRG will convert waste biomass from farmland in northeastern Vermont into renewable gas fuel and BioChar fertilizer as a by-product. The produced renewable fuel gas will be converted into renewable electricity and heat. The plant is expected to deliver over 18,000 MWh of renewable electricity and 1,500 tonnes of BioChar per year and will be fully operational within 12 months.

CETY focuses on applications of high-temperature ablative pyrolysis (HTAP) to agricultural waste, forestry waste, industrial and municipal solid waste, and landfill waste. This builds on the current increase in state and federal incentives to invest in clean energy solutions for commercial and industrial users, as well as the increase in interest in clean energy solutions in municipalities.

Combined with CETY’s existing technologies and solutions, these projects will advance the Company’s mission to offer a more vertically integrated and scalable platform for clean energy solutions across multiple industries in most key markets around the world.

CETA’s existing Organic Rankin Cycle (ORC) business will also leverage any biomass project, offering the opportunity to provide heat recovery solutions. Such synergies increase the energy value of the biomass project by 15%. CETY’s portfolio of biomass projects will, in turn, drive earnings and profit growth elsewhere in the Company, creating long-term, predictable revenues.

More importantly, it provides an outline of future projects using HTAP biomass reactor technology in the rapidly growing biomass renewable energy sector. The HTAP biomass reactor is a unique and proprietary process that converts organic waste using ultra-high temperatures in an oxygen-free environment to produce renewable electricity, BioChar fertilizers and high-calorific fuel gas, as well as other commercially valuable chemicals.

Kam Mahdi, CEO of CETY, stated: “CETY is delighted with USDA’s decision to invest in VRG – Lyndon. News of the USDA’s decision follows CETY’s recent announcement of a memorandum of understanding with Asia Management Energy Capital Partners Pte. Ltd. (AMEC) for up to $12 million in development capital to support VRG. This combination of public and private commitments will propel VRG and CETY to achieve success in this highly profitable and growing industry. CETY recognizes the impact that the Federal Infrastructure Act and the IRA are having on the VRG project, starting with the Timber Innovation Grant. CETY looks forward to receiving final permits for the Lyndonville facility and beginning construction.

VRG will serve as a model for the development of new projects to gain market share in this highly profitable and growing industry. Thanks to the vertical integration of biomass into our operations, we are able to develop our heat recovery activities also horizontally. We hope that our future projects will be orders of magnitude large and have a huge impact on the environment, while providing CETY with new sources of revenue. Our new biomass renewable energy projects are expected to further expand our goal of becoming a complete solution for industrial and municipal scale projects in the strategic markets we target.”
