ECO2 Plastics to File for FDA Approval for Food-Contact Applications.

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ECO2 Plastics, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: ECOO.OB) ("ECO2" or the "Company"), the eco-friendly recycling company that is changing the way plastics are recycled, today announced that initial test results demonstrate that the Company's proprietary cleaning process can produce PET plastic flake that is suitably pure for use in the manufacturing of food-contact containers.

"Based upon the initial data and analysis performed by The National Food Laboratory, Inc., and our attorneys Keller & Heckman, we are pleased to see that our process meets the food-contact standards of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Not only are we recycling PET bottles in an environmentally friendly way, but we are delivering the highest possible quality through the process as well," said Rod Rougelot, ECO2's CEO.

Preliminary calculations demonstrated that ECO2's recycling process is capable of producing PET resin that is suitably pure for use at levels up to 100% in the manufacture of food-contact articles that will be used in contact with all food types under the FDA's Condition of Use C ("Hot filled or pasteurized above 150 degrees F") through H ("Frozen or refrigerated storage: Ready-prepared foods intended to be reheated in container at time of use"). The Company is conducting further tests and is expecting to file a formal application with the FDA in the first quarter of 2008.
