Cielo announces signing of long-term lease for construction of the first commercial waste to energy refinery

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
March 7, 2016

Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. ("Cielo" or the "Company") - On March 4, 2016 Cielo signed a long-term lease for 2.09 acres and a Right Of First Refusal on an additional 8 acres, located in Edmonton, Alberta. This will allow the Company to construct the first unique commercial waste to renewable diesel refinery enabling a groundbreaking global landfill reduction phenomena coinciding with a novel high quality green renewable diesel product.

Don Allan, President and CEO of Cielo, states: "After years of hard work, we are now ready to move forward with completing the engineering and construction of a 1,000 liter per hour refinery. Our decision is a result of many factors, including the 3rd party validation of the technology and proforma as well as an intensive selection process for this site location. Being located in our province's capital city, Edmonton, and in their Heartland Industrial area, will prove to reduce costs in construction and operations. The site is on a major highway corridor, close to suppliers, buyers, manufacturers and industrial infrastructures. The site is large enough to allow for expansion opportunities. We will be applying for permits to construct what we believe to be a waste to energy game changing technology. This refinery will be using waste, such as wood shavings, contaminated plastics, recycle materials and further municipal waste streams to a maximum usage of near 100% landfill reduction status. We will produce renewable diesel that will be used to meet the provincial and federal green mandates for blending with petroleum diesel. We believe this will be a world class facility that will provide many benefits for Edmontonians, Albertans and Cielo's shareholders".

Mohammed Farooq, the Chief Operating Officer of Eco Industrial Business Park, stated "We welcome Cielo's renewable-diesel refinery to our Eco Park. This is what the province needs - value-added businesses in our province to rejuvenate the economy and what better place to locate than our Eco Park site, a success story in itself. This site was an abandoned brownfield site with a single market focus and today we have redeveloped it into a thriving place with many industry leaders calling it home, from Midstream Companies, Waste Management Companies and even a world class Pharmaceutical Company. The addition of Cielo's unique technology brings exactly the diversification and excellence we are looking for".
