ECO2 Plastics Reports Significant Revenue Increase With Second Quarter Earnings.

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ECO2 Plastics, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: ECOO) (formerly ITEC Environmental Group), the eco-friendly recycling company that is changing the way plastics are recycled, today announced that it has filed results of second quarter operations in a Form 10-QSB. The results report a significant increase in revenue, indicating the company's success in bringing the ECO2 recycling system online.

"We are pleased to report record quarterly revenue of $418,000 and $517,000 during the first three and six months ended, respectively, June 30, 2007, as compared to $14,000 and $50,000 for the same respective period ended June 30, 2006," said Rod Rougelot, ECO2's CEO. "We continue to track our accelerated growth and expect to achieve revenues of between $1,500,000 and $2,000,000 in Q3 and between $5,000,000 and $7,000,000 for our 2007 fiscal year."

During the quarter ended June 30, 2007, ECO2 opened its new headquarters in San Francisco and recently announced the publication of a patent entitled: "Method of Removing Contaminants from Plastic Resins." The company holds the exclusive worldwide license to this patent, which was co-developed by ECO2 and is owned by Honeywell Corporation. In addition, the United States Council for Automotive Research's (USCAR) Vehicle Recycling Partnership (VRP), composed of researchers from DaimlerChrysler, Ford Motor Company and General Motors Corporation, announced a contract with ECO2 to further evaluate the Company's recycling technology for recovery of plastics from end-of-life vehicles (ELV) that have been shredded for recycling.

Rougelot added, "ECO2's operations team is focused on optimizing the production line to maximize throughput and production yields while minimizing operating costs. Quality standards are of the utmost importance. In this regard, we are producing our washed clear flake with total contamination levels of under 50 parts per million, meeting the highest industry standards."
