November 3, 2010

LUXEMBOURG, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Alternative Petroleum Technologies S.A. (“APT”) announced today that it has completed the commissioning of its 15 million liters per year capacity blending unit with its Joint Venture partner, Navipac, in Ecuador. The blending unit is being utilized to support the Joint Venture’s agreement with a large Ecuadorian consumer of heavy fuel oil in industrial boilers used for roasting coffee beans.

“Despite subsidized fuel prices in Ecuador, APT’s emulsion technology for fuel oil is delivering environmental emission advantages at a lower net price to the customer under commercial testing underway,” said Ramon Espinel, Navipac’s top executive. Mr. Espinel further stated that initial results being generated were better than originally expected which sets a strong foundation for customer growth.
