OAKDALE, July 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green EnviroTech Holdings Corp. ("GETH" ) (OTCQB: GETH) announced today that the company has signed an Authorized Representative Agreement with EcoEnergy Ventures Pty Ltd. ("EEV") of Melbourne, Australia through Black Lion Oil Limited (BLOL), a company which GETH has a service and management fee agreement. EEV is an Australian-owned company that develops Thermal Waste to Energy Projects, diverting waste from landfills to create clean energy sources.
Gary De Laurentiis, CEO stated, "We are pleased to announce the agreement with EcoEnergy Ventures Pty Ltd ("EEV"), which further expands our development plans in various countries worldwide. GETH has been working with EEV for the last six months developing a business plan for specific areas. EEV looked at similar technology and chose GETH based on the quality of our oil and the cost and efficiency of the technology.
The agreement provides that GETH will support EcoEnergy Ventures with opportunities to employ the GETH Oil Conversion Technology in the Tianjin region of China. The agreement for representation for GETH is though Black Lion Oil (BLOL). GETH/BLOL will engage the services of EEV to introduce opportunities, projects, qualified investors and financing sources to GETH/BLOL. In addition, EEV could provide GETH with the financial and operating partners capable of owning and operating GETH Systems in specific projects in the "Tianjin Region" in China under technology licensing and other support service agreements with GETH/BLOL.
The City of Melbourne has been a "sister city" to Tianjin since 1980 and has developed a very strong relationship with the Tianjin's leaders. As a member of the City of Melbourne's Clean Technology Leaders delegation to Tianjin, EEV was able to develop strong relationships with government and industry leaders in the Tianjin region. These relationships should generate a great deal of confidence that the GETH project will be given consideration by the local governments.
De Laurentiis added, "We are also in discussions with EEV to represent GETH/BLOL in Australia and expect the parameters of the agreement finalized within the next few weeks. EEV is in the process of preparing an investment prospectus for six proposed plants in Australia. EEV will focus on tires as feedstock, which is currently a huge problem in their country. The first plant will be in Perth, starting with two systems. GETH is extremely excited to be part of the first waste tire to oil plant in Australia."
Dylan Nichols, Director of EcoEnergy Ventures, commented: "We are very excited to be working with GETH and Black Lion to develop clean energy projects in Tianjin and Australia. We see the GETH solution as best in class in regards to its efficiency, modularity and end products. It is the perfect solution for the Australian tire market, which is desperate for solutions for its increasing environmental issue".
