China Energy Recovery Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2009 Financial Results

May 17, 2009

– Q2 2009 sales expected to exceed average 2008 level of $5.8 million

– First quarter low level attributed to temporary impact of economic downturn

– 2009 annual performance expected to be an improvement on 2008

SHANGHAI, China, May 17 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — China Energy Recovery, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CGYV) (ISIN: US16943V2060; “CER”), a leader in waste heat energy recovery and industrial energy efficiency, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2009.

Revenues in the three months ended March 31, 2009 were $1.26 million. The relevantly low revenue level was due mainly to a reduction in order completion in terms of number and size between quarters as a result of the company’s order-based business model and the temporary impact of the recent economic downturn.

Gross profit was $0.06 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $1.54 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009 of which an aggregate of $0.64 million were related to public company operations, including $0.40 million of share-based, non-cash expenses. Non-operating expenses were $0.16 million for the period, including $0.13 million non-cash expenses related to changes in the fair value of warrants.

Net loss was $1.47 million for the first quarter of 2009.

“It was a bit challenging for us in the past quarter as a result of quarterly fluctuations due to our order-based business model and with the temporary impact of the economic downturn,” commented Mr. Qinghuan Wu, Chairman and CEO of China Energy Recovery. “With the completion of the Papua New Guinea order of roughly $4.85 million in contract value announced in early May among others, we anticipate the second quarter results will be much improved and exceed the average level of 2008. Our current order book also provides a positive indication of our top line performance for the next several quarters. Further, the emerging market recovery and the continuously strong emphasis of governments on energy efficiency and pollution reduction, especially in China, will continue to help enhance our order pipeline for 2009 and 2010.”

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 vast amounts of that wasted energy and converting it into usable heat energy or electricity, dramatically lowering energy costs. Energy recovery systems are also capable of 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.
