Echelon Wealth Partners Commitment

The Company has engaged Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. (“Echelon“) as a financial adviser to assist the interim management team and the board in assessing a number of potential financing alternatives to advance various capital development projects, including at Aldersyde.

Aldersyde Production Update:

Treat Heat From Electric Heater Online

As the Aldersyde Phase 1 facility continued to operate, Cielo continued to modify and improve the design. Aldersyde Engineering, Operations and Maintenance has made such improvements and therefore repairs the heater online. The heater is expected to be available by June 20, 2022, at which time steady-state, low-flow operation is expected.

Waste management system

A change in feedstock dimension was recently implemented to further improve the process, which resulted in improved distillate quality but impacted solid settling characteristics. The operating strategy and modification of the piping was necessary to manage the waste stream due to the change in the sedimentation characteristics of the solids. Intermediate operations have been positive, improving the recovery of used engine oil from the bottom of the reactors and reducing the production of waste.

Planned production

In line with previous press releases dated May 12, 2022 and April 18, 2022, Aldersyde’s primary focus is to improve reliability, distillate quality and better understand constraints so that learnings can be applied to the design of the research facility and in the future on a large scale. facilities. Going forward, management will no longer be focusing on feed production figures or providing advice on these figures as the current Aldersyde facility is not profitable and these figures are not required to achieve the aforementioned objectives.

Cielo’s plan is to achieve a stable production state over a 10-day period followed by a planned shutdown to inspect the equipment. After each steady-state production cycle, operations and engineering will evaluate the cycle and apply learnings for future trials with modified process parameters.

Introductory conference call

Cielo will host an introductory conference call followed by a Q&A on Monday, June 13, 2022 at 7:00 a.m. Mountain Time (9:00 a.m. EST) with Interim CEO Ryan Jackson and Acting Chief Financial Officer Jasdeep Dhaliwal.
