Clean Power Concepts Letter Of Intent Marks Entry Into Chinese Market With Deal For Potential Sales Of US$400 Million Over Ten Years

REGINA, Saskatchewan, Dec. 28, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Clean Power Concepts Inc. ('Clean Power' or the 'Company'), (OTC Bulletin Board: CPOW), announced today that it has signed an open ended long term letter of intent (the 'Agreement') to supply the Chongqing Grain Group Co. Ltd. of China (' Chongqing') with crude canola oil. At current prices, this Agreement has the potential to generate sales in excess of US$400 million over the ten year minimum expected life of the Agreement.

President and CEO Michael Shenher commented, "The Chinese market represents an incredible opportunity for Clean Power. We've been targeting this market for a few years and negotiating with Chongqing for the past two." Shenher added, "This Agreement is a breakthrough for us and we're now refining our working plan to meet and exceed the expectations of our new major customer."

This agreement will help Chongqing in its goal of establishing supply chains for canola which diversify its reliance on major supplies such as ADM, Cargill and Bunge and is part of a long term plan to create a food processing zone in the Chong Quing region of China which has a processing capacity of 30,000 metric tonnes ('MT') of rapeseed and 30, 000 MT of grain and oil.

Under the agreement, Chongqing has committed to purchasing up to 3, 000 MT per month of crude degummed canola oil from Clean Power's operating subsidiary and ship the oil to China where it will be refined into 'Refined Bleached and Deodorized' ('RBD') oil which is table ready. The refined oil will then be marketed under Chongqing's 'Red Dragon Fly Oil' brand, which is well established in the Chong Qing Region. The parties have agreed that Clean Power will initially supply Chongqing from its own inventory and through purchases from third party suppliers as it increases production facilities to bring all production sold to Chongqing in -house.

Based on a current estimated average price of US$1,320 per MT for crude degummed canola oil, the Company estimates the Agreement may average sales of 2, 500 MT per month, or 30, 000 MT per year, for gross proceeds of approximately US$39,600,000 per year. The Agreement has no termination date and may also lead to other business opportunities with Chongqing. Over the ten year minimum expected life of the Agreement, total sales are projected to exceed US$400 million.

To complete the agreement Clean Power Concepts will be hosting a formal delegation from Chongqing within the next 60 days which will be comprised of private company officials and Chinese state representatives.

About Canola

Canola is one of two cultivars of rapeseed or Brassica campestris. Canola seeds are used to produce edible oil which has lower levels of erucic acid than traditional rapeseed oils and is used to produce livestock feed because it has reduced levels of the toxic glucosinolates. Canola was originally naturally bred from rapeseed in Canada in the early 1970s, but has a different nutritional profile in addition to much less erucic acid. The name "canola" was derived from " Canadian oil, low acid" in 1978. The price of canola oil is indexed to contracts on the Chicago Board of Trade ('CBOT') soy bean futures market and in winter tends to trade at a premium and in summer at par. Generally, canola trades on average at the approximate price of soy bean oil plus five percent. In 2007 worldwide production of canola was 51 million metric tonnes and production for 2010 is estimated to be 60 million metric tonnes of seed and 24 million metric tonnes of canola oil.
