JERUSALEM, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Applied CleanTech (ACT), the unique provider of sewage-mining technology for
wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), announced its partnership with Vert-Energy, a company
dedicated to applying new technologies in sustainable energy in Mexico. According to the
agreement Vert-Energy will introduce ACT’s new wastewater treatment solutions throughout

ACT’s Sewage Recycling System (SRS(TM)) solution recycles wastewater bio-solids
on-site, increasing wastewater treatment plant efficiency, thus yielding immediate
financial benefits: the reduced amount of sludge formation, which also reduces electric
and chemical consumption, constitutes major long-term savings in sewage treatment costs
for WWTPs. Moreover, bio-solids extracted from the wastewater are recycled instantaneously
, creating a new product, automatically packed into a reusable and resalable commodity -
Recyllose(TM). The sale of Recyllose(TM) yields long-term future revenues, serving as an
energy-efficient bio-fuel; as an economical additive for the pulp and paper industry; and
as feedstock for the bio-plastics industry. An additional benefit, particularly in Mexico,
is through carbon credits, earned via ACT’s sustainable technology (reducing GHG
emissions) implemented in developing countries.

The revolutionary innovation of ACT’s sewage-mining and recycling technology is its
dual function – it both extracts and recycles the bio-solids, thus creating an untapped
source of profit in the traditional market of wastewater treatment.

Placing their first SRS(TM) order from ACT, Vert-Energy will introduce, install and
support the SRS(TM) solutions throughout Mexico, and will manage the promotion of

values as ACT, and we are confident that their solutions will dramatically improve
wastewater treatment in Mexico, helping to preserve the environment, while reducing costs
for our clients. I am proud to announce this partnership and I foresee a financially
viable future for both of our companies,” said Vert-Energy CEO, Fernando Delgado.

Dr. Refael Aharon, CEO of ACT said: “Vert-Energy of Mexico is the first to join our
mutual aim in spearheading the WWTP revolution as a profitable business model. We have
created great synergy between the two companies, and our partnership with Vert-Energy with
its expertise in WWTPs, marks a significant opportunity in Mexico.”
