Environmental Power Corporation and Organix, Inc. Establish Alliance to Produce High Value Soil Amendment Products
Date:11/5/2008

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Environmental Power Corporation (Nasdaq: EPG), a leader in the renewable bioenergy industry, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Microgy, Inc., has entered into a strategic alliance agreement with Organix, Inc., of Walla Walla, Washington, to produce a peat alternative, RePeet(TM), using solids recovered from selected Microgy anaerobic digestion facilities.

"This is a very exciting alliance," said Rich Kessel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Environmental Power. "This arrangement allows Environmental Power to produce another high-value product from waste streams, in addition to our premium-based Renewable Natural Gas (RNG(R)). We are looking forward to working with Organix to identify appropriate sites and produce RePeet(TM)."

Organix is the creator of RePeet(TM), a renewable and responsible peat moss alternative made entirely from anaerobically digested dairy manure. The company's patent pending FibeRite system converts the residual into the market ready peat substitute. Peat is a soil amendment that is found in almost every horticultural soil mix and potted plant in North America. Peat and peat replacement products typically have much higher market value versus standard compost materials. Most of the peat moss used in the U.S. comes from Canada and is subject to high transportation costs, short harvest windows and adverse weather that can significantly impede peat extraction.

A typical large scale Microgy RNG(R) project can produce 40,000 to 70,000 cubic yards of RePeet(TM) product per year, with associated revenues to the company dependent on specific project arrangements. RePeet(TM) is produced for local and regional landscapers, nurseries and as a primary ingredient in the bagged soil amendment products found on garden center and retailer shelves nationwide.

"We are very optimistic about the future of this collaboration with Microgy," states Russell V. Davis, President of Organix. "Environmental Power has proven that their digestion model works and, like us, are interested in uncovering the upside opportunities associated with anaerobic digestion residuals, which we believe to be significant. We are looking forward to working with Microgy to expand RePeet(TM) and other byproducts from their anaerobic digestion projects."
