Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada / December 15, 2017 / CSE:CMC: Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. ("Cielo" or the "Company") today announced its second quarter (Q2) financial results for the quarter ended October 31, 2017.

Highlights from Three and Six Months Ended October 31, 2017

  1. July 10, 2017 - Cielo announced that the Company had received its Development Permit from the MD of Foothills #31. Receipt of the permit was a major milestone for Cielo, as it was issued subject only to standard terms and conditions, with which Cielo’s management is confident it can easily comply.
  2. July 20, 2017 - Cielo announced the hiring of Kwik-Fab Energy Services to dismantle the Company’s demonstration plant in Red Deer, AB and proceed with converting it from a 50 liter an hour batch process demonstration plant into a 350 liter an hour continuous flow refinery that will produce high grade renewable diesel at the Company’s facility in High River, Alberta.
  3. July 27, 2017 - Cielo announced the signing of a multi-year feedstock agreement with Mountain View Eco Products. This agreement will provide Cielo, at a fixed cost, an ample supply of sawdust and wood shavings to fulfill 100% of the feedstock requirements for the Company’s first commercial waste to renewable diesel refinery, which is currently under construction on the Company’s High River, Alberta property. Cielo has the ability to use multiple different garbagederived feedstocks in its renewable diesel refineries.
  4. September 18, 2017 - Cielo announced that its demonstration plant (the “Demo Plant”) in Red Deer, AB had been dismantled for the purposes of moving it to Cielo’s property in High River, AB to begin to retrofit the existing refinery into Cielo’s first commercial plant. With the Demo Plant dismantled, Cielo began identifying vendors for the larger equipment needed to complete the retrofitting. Cielo has moved its operational offices from an industrial park in Red Deer County to downtown Red Deer, Alberta.
  5. September 18, 2017 – Cielo announced that PanOptic Automation Solutions (“PanOptic”) has been selected to handle the automation installation for the Company’s initial refinery. PanOptic is a privately-owned Calgary based consulting firm providing automation and instrumentation. PanOptic will become a strategic partner to oversee the optimization, automation and remote monitoring of the Company’s proprietary waste to renewable diesel refineries.
  6. Over three of four tranches in July, August and September 2017, Cielo raised gross proceeds of $2,283,236 ($1,048,236 of which was settlement for debt). The net proceeds from all three tranches are being used to continue with the construction of Cielo’s first commercial waste to energy refinery as well as for general working capital.

This news release should be read in conjunction with Cielo’s unaudited financial statements and the accompanying notes, as at and for the three and six months ended October 31, 2017, together2 with the related Management Discussion and Analysis. Those documents are available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and on the Cielo website at www.cielows.com.

Operational Update

All process drawings for Phase 1 have now been completed. As construction advances occur, Cielo’s engineering team is making improvements to the design of the continuous flow modular refineries that are being built on the Company’s High River property. These design changes will optimize the operational efficiencies of Cielo’s refineries. Cielo has approximately 80% of the work completed for the 1st 350 liter per hour refinery and 75% of the design work completed on its 1,800 liter per hour refinery that will be commissioned after the first refinery is up and running. Notwithstanding not knowing what the timing will be to receive the prerequisite approval of the EPEA Permit from Alberta Environmental and Parks, Cielo anticipates that its first continuous flow refinery will be fully operational in the spring of 2018.

Cielo also announces today that it has issued 1,538,461 common shares (the “Share(s)”) at $0.13 per Share for gross proceeds of $200,000, for the purposes of repayment of debt.
