Klean Signs LOI to Supply Five More Recovered Carbon Black Plants

Vancouver, British Columbia — Klean Industries Inc (“Klean”) is pleased to announce the signing of a non-binding Letter of Intent to supply equipment for another 5 more rCB upgrading projects in India which will bring the total number of built facilities to 8 in just India alone over the past 2 years. Klean’s presence and activity in Asia is expanding and as of late there has been a large and growing interest in Klean’s advanced technology which is required to produce high quality, low cost Recovered Carbon Black (“rCB”) throughout South East Asia. Klean anticipates further expansions as the demand for rCB is significant, especially with the virgin carbon black shortages and import tariffs on Carbon Black in India.

A core part of Klean’s intellectual property and know-how is for the processing of scrap tyres. Klean has a proven portfolio of advanced technologies that transforms the waste tires into high quality, valuable raw materials primarily Recovered Carbon Black and Recovered Fuel Oil. Klean’s tyre char upgrading systems enable the economic conversion of low-value tire char into high-value Carbon Black replacements which can replace virgin Carbon Black by volumes of 10% up to 100% depending on the applications. The additional expansion and equipment sales in India could significantly disrupt the rCB market place and could make India a leading producer of rCB products for the plastic, automotive, and rubber industries. These new resource recovery plants have the potential to easily bring online another 75,000 metric tonnes of rCB annually. This combined with the already existing supply chain and product portfolio makes for an exciting and growing business opportunity in India.

Klean is currently working with several of the largest global tyre manufactures, rubber, and plastic automotive parts suppliers along with numerous other supply line producers and end-users who all see the market potential and opportunity for rCB to offset both emissions and costs associated with traditional carbon black manufacturing. It’s estimated that the carbon emission offsets alone from these combined facilities will be in excess of 225,000 metric tonnes annually.

Klean’s CEO said, “With ongoing developments, Klean has been able to bring its recovered carbon black plant manufacturing costs down considerably and it’s quality of production techniques up, thus enabling further rapid expansion into other adjacent Asia countries as well. Klean has spent years developing its relationships and with long term arrangements in place throughout the supply chain this enables Klean to do what other vendors and suppliers cannot, at less than 50% of the capital costs”.

Klean has further reinforced its current business initiatives by coupling its manufacturing capabilities with trade finance relationships. By establishing and strengthening international trade finance relationships with the Export Development Bank of Canada (www.edc.ca) and Elevate Financial Corp (www.elevatefinance.ca) the company is now able to offer new and existing customers with financing on competitive terms for loans to purchase plants and equipment of all sizes on approved credit (“OAC”) of up to 85% both secured and unsecured depending on size and financial requirements.
