ECO2 Plastics Continues Implementation of Its Recapitalization and Financing Strategy - Withdraws SB-2 Registration Statement.

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ECO2 Plastics, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: ECOO) ("ECO2" or the "Company"), the eco-friendly recycling company that is changing the way plastics are recycled, today announced that, as part of its recapitalization and financing strategy, it has withdrawn a previously filed SB-2 Registration Statement with the SEC. The Company believes that withdrawing the SB-2 Registration Statement at this juncture enables it to better evaluate and more readily adopt certain financing options in a timelier manner.

"Our stated objectives have been to finance and commercialize our proprietary recycling process and rapidly scale our operations in order to build shareholder value. By postponing the completion of a registration statement, the Company expects to have more avenues for achieving its financing and commercialization goals," said Rod Rougelot, ECO2's CEO.

Rougelot added, "With our move towards cash flow positive operations in Q4, we are examining opportunities to recapitalize with longer term debt financing and continue our expansion with additional recycling plants, which would not be possible with the registration statement currently filed. Furthermore, withdrawal of the filing removes SEC related communication restrictions, which will allow us to communicate our progress and the exciting opportunities we foresee ahead of us."

About ECO2 Plastics (http:/ )

ECO2 Plastics, formerly ITEC Environmental Group (BULLETIN BOARD: ECOO) , is a publicly traded company engaged in PET plastic recycling. The Company's patented process was developed through a research partnership with Honeywell FM&T and the US Department of Energy. ECO2 Plastics is the exclusive worldwide licensee of the patented and patent-pending technology. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, the Company operates a recycling plant in Riverbank, California and another plant is currently under development in Southern California.

ECO2's approach sets it apart from competitors that deploy water-based recycling processes. Unlike other recyclers, ECO2's process eliminates the use of water, respects and preserves the environment, while delivering a high quality recycled plastic flake with comparably lower operating costs. ECO2 Plastics is the only recycling company that can claim that (i) its plastic recycling technology has a negligible impact on the environment and (ii) is distinguishable from existing technologies when it comes to water waste and chemical contamination.
