Acquisition from General Electric
October 19, 2015, before Probe Manufacturing, Inc., changed its name to Clean Energy Technologies, Inc. Probe announced it completed the purchase of the assets of GE’s Heat Recovery Solutions business from General Electric International, Inc. and substantially all of the assets relating to GE’s Heat Recovery Solutions business, which were located at GE’s facility in Costa Mesa, California. The GE’s Heat Recovery Solutions system captures waste heat from a variety of sources and turns it into electricity that users can use or sell back to the grid. GE paid $55 million to Calnetix for the acquisition and also invested an additional $30 million to improve the technology to create the new Clean Cycle II ORC Generator. Concurrent with this announcement, the Company announced that it was changing its name to “Clean Energy Technologies, Inc.” that better reflects the Company’s new generation of energy efficient technologies. Now CETY owns this $85 million General Electric Heat Recovery technology that serves an industry forecast to be over $65 billionby 2021. The company’s vision is to become a leader in efficient power generation and renewable energy.

CETY’s system is designed specifically for the biggest markets which are small-scale power generation at factories, biomass operations, large reciprocating engines, and even hundreds of thousands of large residential buildings that give off a lot of unused heat. It can also be used to make electricity from landfills that capture and burn biogas or at a concentrating solar power plant. To turn heat into electricity, CETY uses an Organic Rankine Cycle where heat and pressure turn a working fluid, which is a refrigerant, into a vapor. That vapor expands to turn a turbine, which drives a generator to make electricity. The vapor is cooled, turned back into a liquid, and circulated in pipes through the system again.
The company says that improvements in the basic cycle allow it to turn heat as low as 250 degrees Fahrenheit into 100 kilowatts of electricity which can be used on site or fed into the grid. One important thing that separates CETY from the pack is that their ORC Generators use an oil free, frictionless magnetic levitation for the turbine as opposed to bearing load designs that require substantially more maintenance and are not nearly as efficient.
June 11, 2018 CETY announced it entered into an agreement to cross promote its products with Biomass Power Limited, BPL, a leading designer, builder and operator of Biomass waste to energy power stations. The agreement calls for BPL and Clean Energy Technologies to refer customers and promote and solicit orders for their products. BPL has incorporated CETY's Clean Cycle II™ Organic Rankine Cycle ORC heat recovery generator into its waste to energy power plants.
CETY's management estimates that between one to four Clean Cycle II™ ORC heat recovery generators will be used in each family of BPL-TEC Stepped Grate Gasification plants built by BPL, which delivers gross power outputs ranging from 140 – 560 kWe. The Clean Cycle II™ ORC heat recovery generator will be used to create electricity from hot water that has been produced by thermally processing (via advanced gasification) non-recyclable "end of waste" organics (biomass) and plastic's.
Kam Mahdi, Chief Executive Officer of CETY said, "We look forward to working with BPL to cross promote our products. We are honored that BPL, a globally-recognized and market-leader in the design of gasification-based waste to energy power stations, has decided to integrate our Clean Cycle II™ ORC heat recovery generators into its solutions. Through our partnership with BPL, CETY will provide a low maintenance, highly efficient ORC system utilizing our patented magnetic turbine generator that is easy to deploy and simple to maintain. We believe that the association will be very beneficial for the long-term growth of our company."
Ben Talbott, CEO of Biomass Power Ltd, commented about the new relationship, "Having seen the market for environmentally friendly small scalable waste from energy solutions grow exponentially, BPL is pleased to work with Clean Energy Technologies and integrate their product line into our Stepped Grate Gasification solution for waste to energy plants. We expect that our new relationship will enable us to better serve our clients' needs for electricity by efficiently producing medium temperature hot water from processing one of the worlds increasing problems, waste, as a clean fuel."
According to a report by Expert Market Research, global biomass power reached a production volume of 440 TWh in 2016 and is further expected to reach 963 TWh by 2022, an increase of approximately 118% in 6 years.

Corycos is pleased to work with Clean Energy Technologies and introduce their product line into our extensive client base. CETY's technology is a perfect fit for our business and we are excited about where this agreement will lead."
The Biogas markets represent one of most sizable industries and gaining exposure to this industry is no small feat and could take CETY to an entirely new level. Global Market Insights reports the waste to energy market size was $20.86 Billion in 2015 of which thermal based waste to energy technology occupied a significant percentage of the market, which may surpass $29 billion by 2023.
How much is a company worth that owns an $85 million Heat Recovery Technology that is the most cost-effective technology in a multi-billion-dollar market and that is ready to hit 2019 with a built in strong backlog. A good market comp is PwrCor, Inc. that provides an engine that converts low heat to energy and has sales of about $1 million which is a little more than half of CETY reported sales for 2018 to date, but that supports a market cap of $30 million versus the $7.5 million market cap for CETY. Given the wide gap in undervaluation for CETY, and the valuable technology that gives them a big competitive edge in a big marketplace, a fair market value today for CETY based on actual market comps is greater than $40 million which translates to a share price of $.075 per share versus current price of $.014. Factoring in growth for 2019 alone, an unrealized market value of $.25 per share is justified. CETY has substantial growth potential in years to come as large users learn about the substantial savings they can realize with CETY technology.
