TAMPA, FL, Oct. 14, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- EarthFirst Technologies Inc. has signed a letter of intent with ECE EarthClean Energy (ECE) to license territories in Canada and for the sale of a Catalytic Activated Vacuum Distillation (CAVD) plant.

The agreement with ECE, based in Calgary, Alberta, is a license for three provinces in Canada: Ontario, Quebec and Alberta. A nonrefundable license fee of US$1 million will be paid to EarthFirst as part of the agreement.

It includes an initial deposit of $200,000 and $300,000 paid upon signing of the formal license contract. The balance of the $500,000 will be paid upon the first occurrence of: a) one year from the date of the signed letter of intent, or b) when ECE builds a plant in a second of the listed provinces.

At the signing of the contract, a 10% deposit for the purchase of the first plant will be made with the balance secured by a letter of credit, which can be drawn down as the plant is completed. The performance requirement of the license calls for one plant in the first year and a total of three plants in three years. The license is renewable for an additional seven years with at least one plant per year required. ECE will own 100% of the plants and EFTI will receive royalties for continued services during the contract period.
