CHARLOTTE, NC, Jan. 9, 2007 -- EcoPlus Inc. announced today that it has made progress towards completing an agreement with Alliance Development Group LLC for the purchase of license rights to the company's patent-pending, commercially proven technology for turning brown grease restaurant refuse into a high quality, solid fuel product, as well as for the direct funding to build up to five fuel production plants in 2007. Closing of the agreement is expected to take place within the next 30 days. The Alliance agreement was first revealed in a reference to a signed Letter of Intent in a Nov. 3, 2006, Wallstreetnewsalert.com Special News Alert, a press release which offered an investment opinion on EcoPlus.

Bill Burke, president of Alliance Development Group, released the following comment on the EcoPlus L.O.I., "Our focus on completing a $1 billion agreement with Houston University's General Hospital Systems has delayed the completion of our agreement with EcoPlus. We are now focused on completing arrangements with EcoPlus, and we maintain a very high interest in developing their fuel production technology."

Ralph Rogers, president of EcoPlus noted, "Alternative energy technologies, including those for biomass as exemplified in our patent pending system, are finding increasing acceptance and utilization in both the public and private sectors. We are enthusiastic about the positive impact our agreement with Alliance will have on our growth and on the value for our shareholders."
