About MicroCoal™ Technologies Inc.

The Company is focused on commercializing its unique, clean-coal upgrading technology known as MicroCoal™; a low-cost, patented microwave technology that reduces moisture in coal resulting in an upgraded energy content of coal. This process provides significant financial benefits to coal-fired electrical generating utilities such as: large cost savings from switching to low-rank coal, substantial increases in boiler efficiencies and heat output, improved ash efficiencies and reductions in scrubber costs. Important environmental benefits including reductions in most greenhouse gases (SOx up to 70%, NOx and mercury) are also key primary benefits from implementation of this technology. The Company iscurrently constructing the first commercial facility in Indonesia with other projects soon to be announced.

We seek safe harbor.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,
