On December 22, 2011, CER announced that the Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program of up to $500,000. The funding for the repurchases will be from cash on hand.

CER may determine not to use the full amount of funds available or may determine to increase the funds available for the repurchase program
What is Waste Heat Energy Recovery?
Industrial facilities release significant amounts of excess heat into the atmosphere in the form of hot exhaust gases or high-pressure steam. Energy recovery is the process of recovering as much as two-thirds of that wasted energy and converting it into usable heat energy or electricity, dramatically lowering energy costs. Energy recovery systems are also capable of lowering heat pollution and capturing harmful pollutants that would otherwise be released into the environment. It is estimated that if energy currently wasted by all the U.S. industrial facilities could be recovered, it could produce power equivalent to 20% of U.S. electricity generation capacity without burning any additional fossil fuel, and could help many industries to meet stringent environmental regulations.
