CER Reports Financial Results for the Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2010

Significant Investment in New State-of-the-Art Manufacturing Facilities in 2010 Sets Stage for $115 Million in 2011 Production

SHANGHAI, April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Energy Recovery Inc. (CGYV) ("CER"), an emerging growth company and international leader in the development of cutting-edge waste heat energy recovery systems, is returning to full reporting with today's filing of its financial results for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2010. China Energy Recovery's present auditing firm is PricewaterhouseCoopers.

In 2010 China Energy Recovery invested in the construction and implementation of new 150,000 sq ft state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Yangzhou that were officially inaugurated on January 8, 2011. This significant investment, which dramatically increases the company's production capacity, along with the development of a stronger engineering base, has given China Energy Recovery the necessary infrastructure to meet its future growth initiatives.

"2010 was a year of significant transition, as it marks the first phase of a three-year plan to give the company enhanced manufacturing and design capabilities, in order to absorb the growing number of orders we are receiving, and emerge as one of the principal leaders at the forefront of the energy recovery sector in China, and around the word," said Qinghuan Wu, China Energy Recovery's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"CER's investment in these new state-of-the-art facilities, the move of our manufacturing from Shanghai to Yangzhou and the hiring and training of new staff and engineers, resulted in delays in delivery and substantial additional cost, which understandably translated into a smaller recognized revenue and a loss in 2010," continued Mr. Wu. "However, this investment was a necessity to allow the company to undertake the future production pipeline and satisfy the needs of a fast increasing demand of the market. This strategy has already translated in nearly $115 million in works for 2011, or five times the total revenue of 2010. This spectacular surge in orders effectively confirms the validity of the company's long-term strategic vision."

For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2010, CER generated $21.2 million in revenue compared to $22.2 million in revenue in fiscal 2009. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) costs for fiscal 2010 were $6.4 million compared to $5.8 million in the same period last year. The increase in SGA expense was due primarily to an increase in labor and training costs as the company added over 100 new management and professional staff in 2010. CER recorded a net loss of $3.5 million or ($0.11) per share in fiscal 2010 compared with a net loss of $886,480 or ($0.03) per share in the same period a year ago.

CER had $3.0 million in cash at the end of the period.

Mr. Wu concluded, "The results for fiscal 2010 reflect a period of substantial transformation for the company. CER made the shift from a much smaller, single-product contract manufacturing company to a far larger firm, more focused on EPC contracts for which the company realizes much higher revenue. It was only at the end of the year that CER was able to move from its manufacturing quarters in Shanghai to the much larger, state-of-the-art facilities in Yangzhou. With this transition completed, CER is now able to focus on expanding its operations to suit its larger-scale EPC-oriented sales development, and ready to embrace the next phase of its planned development. We strive to keep our prospective investors and our loyal shareholders informed of our expansion initiatives in 2011, and we look forward to providing updates on our progress in the coming weeks and months."

What is Waste Heat Energy Recovery?

Industrial facilities release significant amounts of excess heat into the atmosphere in the form of hot exhaust gases or high-pressure steam. Energy recovery is the process of recovering as much as two-thirds of that wasted energy and converting it into usable heat energy or electricity, dramatically lowering energy costs. Energy recovery systems are also capable of lowering heat pollution and capturing harmful pollutants that would otherwise be released into the environment. It is estimated that if energy currently wasted by all the U.S. industrial facilities could be recovered, it could produce power equivalent to 20% of U.S. electricity generation capacity without burning any additional fossil fuel, and could help many industries to meet stringent environmental regulations.

About China Energy Recovery, Inc.

China Energy Recovery Inc. (CGYV.PK) is a leading international engineering and manufacturing company that specializes in the design, fabrication and installation and of cutting-edge waste heat energy recovery systems. Using patented technology developed by a team of over 100 engineers, CER's energy recovery systems capture and convert waste energy that is produced by heavy industrial processes into low-cost electrical power. CER's environmentally friendly technology enables industrial manufacturers to reduce their energy costs, shrink their emissions footprint and generate saleable emissions credits. Not only is the technology good for the environment, investments in CER's waste heat recovery systems typically pay off in energy savings over a one-to-three-year period. The company's primary focus is the market in China, which represents one of the largest concentrations of heavy industry in the world. However, due to increasing international interest, CER's systems are now operating in heavy industrial plants located in Egypt, Korea, Vietnam and Malaysia. In 2010 CER finished the construction of China's first state-of-the-art energy recovery system research and fabrication facility, which will allow CER to meet increased demand for its products and services worldwide.
