GreenShift Invests in Air Cycle Corporation
Monday November 28, 10:00 am ET
Company Markets Proprietary Products for Recycling Spent Lighting Products

MOUNT ARLINGTON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 28, 2005--GreenShift Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: GSHF - News) today announced that it agreed to acquire a 30% stake in Air Cycle Corporation ("Air Cycle"), a privately-held lamp, ballast, battery and electronics waste recycling company.

Under the terms of its agreement with Air Cycle, GreenShift will purchase 30% of Air Cycle`s outstanding stock and receive certain commercial rights in return for GreenShift`s investment of about $350,000 and its provision of strategic business development and other services.

Lamp Recycling

Due to the new Federal EPA regulations on fluorescent and mercury vapor lamps, which went into effect on January 6th, 2000, most non-residential facilities are now required to properly dispose of their lamps. Landfills are increasingly intolerant of lamps from non-residential sources due to the amount of mercury found in each lamp. Lamps later found in landfills are subject to retroactive clean-up costs under EPA regulations. Recycling of the lamp components is the recommended method of disposal by the Environmental Protection Agency and helps to eliminate facility liability. Air Cycle offers lamp recycling products and services nationwide based on its Bulb Eater® product line and its EasyPak(TM) recycling program.

Air Cycle`s EasyPak(TM) Recycling Program is offered as an alternative for customers who generate spent lamps, batteries, and/or ballasts and cannot meet Air Cycle`s quantity minimums for bulk pick-ups. Small shipments are instead shipped through pre-paid FedEx Ground transportation services. The program is simple, requires little paperwork, and is a practical option for facilities nationwide.

Air Cycle`s Bulb Eater® product line crushes spent fluorescent lamps into small fragments and compacts them into 55-gallon containers. This greatly improves storage of the lamps, handling, safety/liability issues, and recycling costs. The units are complete with filtration systems to help ensure both OSHA and EPA compliance, even for facilities disposing of large quantities of lamps. Air Cycle`s Bulb Eater® products have been mentioned on the front page of the Wall Street Journal and numerous other publications and in use today at many small and large companies, schools, hospitals, military bases, and government agencies.

Scott Beierwaltes, Air Cycle`s chief executive officer, said that "Air Cycle was founded to address the growing need to make lamp recycling easy and efficient. This is directly in line with what we believe GreenShift is about and we are very excited to become part of GreenShift`s portfolio."

"Air Cycle has built an impressive blue-chip following for its existing Bulb Eater® consumer product line," added Kevin Kreisler, GreenShift`s chairman and chief executive officer. "We take this as proof positive that the concept of distributed waste reduction and recycling is not just viable but is capable of thriving with the right backing. We intend to provide Air Cycle with this backing as we help them grow through acquisitions, increased sales, and technology development."

Manufacturing and Distribution Rights

GreenShift`s agreements with Air Cycle also provide for right of first refusal manufacturing rights to Air Cycle`s Bulb Eater® product line for INSEQ Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: INSQ - News), a GreenShift portfolio company, that are expected to be worth in excess $1.5 million per year. The agreements with Air Cycle also grant INSEQ the right to distribute Air Cycle products and services through INSEQ`s new online store in return for fixed transaction fees payable to INSEQ.
