    PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

    Alter Nrg has continued to build on the accomplishments of the first half
of 2007, advancing projects in the waste-to-energy, power retrofit and
coal-to-liquids markets while ramping up our business development activities
and the technical work required to expand the Alter Nrg/WPC service offering.
    On August 2, Alter Nrg announced a joint venture with Jacoby Energy
Development Inc. that includes an option to invest, at Alter Nrg's sole
discretion, in the world's largest plasma gasification project to convert
household waste to electricity in St. Lucie County, Florida. This facility,
which will initially process 1,000 tons per day of garbage expanding to 3,000
tons per day and is expected to commence construction in late 2008, will
generate US$40 to US$50 million in technology sales revenues to Alter Nrg.
Should Alter Nrg opt to make an equity investment in St. Lucie, additional
annual revenues of $8 - $12 million are expected for phase 1, and
$15 - $20 million in phase 2.
    The Somerset Coal Retrofit project in Massachusetts continues to move
forward with our partners at NRG Energy (the largest independent power
producer in the US). The project received its preliminary state regulatory
approval in September, and had its public hearing in October. We will continue
to work with NRG Energy as their core technology supplier and, between now and
the first quarter of 2008, we will be evaluating whether to make an equity
investment of up to 25% in the project.
    While we remain committed to the use of strategic partnerships to
accelerate our growth and to mitigate certain project risks, we recognize that
it is prudent to continue pursuing our own separate opportunities in parallel.
With this in mind, we have been actively developing projects that are outside
our joint ventures and recently have been targeting those that are
geographically closer to home. This includes our large Fox Creek coal resource
which we are actively moving forward and for which we anticipate releasing a
public disclosure document in mid-2008.
    We continue to be pleased with the market demand for our commercially
proven plasma gasification technology. Alter Nrg has more than thirty
technology sale opportunities in more than a dozen countries, up from about
ten opportunities when Alter Nrg purchased WPC. The project developers of
these opportunities, which are mostly in the early stage of development, are
actively permitting and siting their projects and negotiating long-term
feedstock and product agreements. These projects, predominantly in the
waste-to energy sector, have an average intake capacity of 750 to 1,000 tons
per day and generate between 30 MW and 40 MW of power. With an average capital
cost in the order of $250 million (and technology sale revenue to Alter Nrg of
approximately $50 million per project) these facilities would take
approximately two years to complete, after receipt of regulatory approvals.
Following the repositioning and expansion of our gasification technology
product offering in the marketplace Alter Nrg has experienced a growing volume
of sales and business development inquiries, particularly in the
waste-to-energy market.
    As we look to further enhance our business development and marketing
activities, we have created an aggressive marketing and sales strategy which
will see us speaking at several industry conferences next year and exhibiting
at five or more industry trade shows. The first such opportunity is the
upcoming Power-Gen International Conference in New Orleans, where Alter Nrg
will participate through an exhibitor booth. This conference is the world's
largest power generation event, drawing more than 17,000 industry
professionals from 76 countries and 1,100 exhibiting companies. This venue
will provide us with the opportunity to promote the Alter Nrg/WPC
relationship, showcase what Alter Nrg is capable of doing with the WPC
technology, generate customer leads, contact potential project partners and
create valuable media relations opportunities.
    I am pleased to welcome James Fitzowich, our new Chief Operating Officer,
to the Alter Nrg Executive team. Jim brings a wealth of experience through his
20 years in the power industry in both Canada and the United States with EPCOR
Utilities Inc., TransCanada Pipelines and TransAlta Utilities Corp. He has a
proven track record in developing energy projects and building sizeable energy
companies. In total he has been involved in the development, acquisition or
sale of approximately $3 billion in power/industrial projects over the past 12
years in both Canada and the US.
    In closing, I am pleased with the opportunity-rich environment and the
numerous opportunities in both gasification project development and
gasification technology sales. Going forward, we remain execution focused and
are looking to have a steady stream of project announcements over the coming
year.

    WHAT WE DO AND HOW WE DO IT

    Alter Nrg solves two major challenges in the world today: responsibly
disposing of waste materials and providing clean sources of energy. Our vision
is to become a senior energy producer and a North American leader in the
development of innovative gasification projects.
    We own 100% of WPC, the company that developed and holds the patents for
the WPC plasma gasification technology. Plasma gasification takes waste or raw
fuel - bitumen, petroleum coke, coal or garbage - and, through the application
of intense heat, vaporizes these feed stocks into a synthetic gas (syngas)
that has many direct applications such as producing steam and power. We can
also apply existing available technology to convert this product into other
forms of energy - hydrogen, diesel, ethanol or methane. WPC licenses and sells
plasma gasification technology and products worldwide.
    Gasification creates value by taking low cost feed stocks that are
abundant and converting them into high value energy that the world requires.
The nature of the gasification process allows for the removal of harmful
contaminants which makes this an environmentally responsible process producing
cleaner energy. The recent change in the commodity price environment combined
with increasing environmental awareness within the general public has lead to
a rapid growth industry. The 2007 World Gasification Database shows that
existing world gasification capacity has grown 25% since its last report in
2004 and anticipates a further increase of over 30% by 2010. Alter Nrg is well
positioned to capitalize on this market with a commercially proven technology
that can be utilized in numerous market segments within this growing industry.
    Our business plan continues to evolve and grow as our technology gains
traction in the marketplace. We are continually being sought out by industry
leaders to partner and share our project management expertise in the
application of our unique technology in their businesses. This has led to
value creation opportunities through plasma gasification sales as well as
project participation in the clean energy projects. Beyond the sale of
gasification units, Alter Nrg intends to create incremental shareholder value
by aligning with strategic partners and taking an equity position in the most
accretive projects which provide long-life cash flows from energy sales.

    We have begun to apply our expertise to projects in four distinct 
markets:

    1. Waste-to-Energy (WTE) - This commercially proven application has been
operating successfully since 2002. Built on over 40 years of research and
development by WPC and its predecessor, Westinghouse Electric Corporation,
WPC's technology is a recognized industry leader throughout the world for
plasma gasification in the WTE sector. The WPC Plasma Gasification Reactor
virtually eliminates the need for feed preparation, a process step that
accounts for a significant portion of the capital and operating cost of other
commercial gasification technologies. Plus, our technology has the ability to
handle a wide range of feedstocks.
    Effective disposal of waste is a global problem and Alter Nrg has a
proven plasma gasification solution. Even a small share of this enormous
market represents multi-billion dollars of cash flow. Near-term projects could
be operational and producing a steady revenue stream as early as 2010. A
smaller scale project technology sale would provide $2.5 million in technology
revenues, while a standard full gasifier product sale would generate
$30 million and a large project would generate in the order of $75 million in
revenues. All projects are forecast to have attractive rates of return.

    2. Power Plant Retrofits - Through a strategic partnership with NRG
Energy, America's largest independent power producer, WPC technology will be
used to retrofit older power generation facilities. The first project of this
alliance, in Somerset, Massachusetts, is in the advanced stages of regulatory
approval. Each project is expected to be worth over US$30 million in
technology sales to Alter Nrg and would have an attractive rate of return.

    3. Petroleum Coke (PetCoke) - We have been approached by several
potential partners to apply our unique technology to convert this waste
by-product into usable clean energy. Alberta Energy Research Institute
predicts that "Alberta is destined to have the world's largest gasification
capacity" due to the unique confluence of feedstock and infrastructure. On
October 5th, Alberta Environment issued an Approvals Program Policy regarding
the burning of bitumen, petroleum coke or asphaltenes requiring project
applicants to use gasification technology, and to make the projects carbon
capture and storage ready. Alter Nrg is positioning to capture a portion of
this large market and expects to announce a project in the next 12 to 18
months.

    4. Coal-to-Liquids (CTL) - Alter Nrg owns 876 million tonnes of
coal-in-place in Alberta, 770 million of which is in Fox Creek. This coal
asset was specifically chosen as feedstock for our CTL project due to its
proximity to infrastructure and to mature oil fields that would benefit from
enhanced oil recovery, providing a market and safe disposal of CO2 production.
A 10,000 bbl/d facility is projected to be operational between 2013 and 2015.
Alter Nrg's resource base at Fox Creek has enough coal to produce over 50,000
bbls/d of liquid fuel such as diesel for over 40 years.
    The Calgary-based Alter Nrg team has a track record of implementing
cost-effective, modular, scaleable, staged facilities with short construction
times. Several of our executives and directors have taken companies from
start-up to multi-billion dollar market caps in their business careers and a
number of our technical team members have direct senior gasification
experience with multi-national companies.

together to form positive relationships in the communities in which it
operates and with all of its stakeholders.

    On April 17, 2007 Alter Nrg had significant changes to its business
including:

    
        -  Acquiring WPC, a private U.S. plasma gasification company
        -  Becoming publicly listed on the TSX Venture exchange
        -  Raising additional capital to fund business development efforts

    The acquisition of WPC provides Alter Nrg with a leading plasma
gasification technology. Alter Nrg is still focused on project development -
however, the control of a leading edge technology provides significant
benefits including:
        -  Early cash flows from technology sales
        -  Operational control of the technology for Alter Nrg projects
        -  Developing relationships with WPC customers which provides
           opportunities to invest (as a project partner) in projects which
           are using the WPC plasma gasification technology
        -  Ability to license and create joint ventures worldwide with
           companies that provide financial strength, existing market
           knowledge, and project development expertise.
    

    Strategic joint ventures

    The Company has entered into several strategic joint ventures since its
IPO on April 17, 2007 which include:

    NRG Energy Inc. ("NRG") - One of the leading electricity generators in
the U.S. Northeast and with a market capitalization over $8 billion, NRG owns
and operates over 24,000 MW of power generation assets, most of which are
located in the United States. NRG is a Fortune 500 company and is publicly
traded on the New York Stock Exchange. NRG has an exclusive license to use the
WPC technology in coal power plant retrofits where they take conventional coal
plants (with high emissions profiles) and convert the front end coal burning
to coal gasification which reduces the harmful environmental emissions. Alter
Nrg has the option to take up to a 25% equity participation in any project
that NRG advances. Alter Nrg is a core technology supplier to the coal power
retrofit projects with each project representing a $30 million or greater sale
of technology.

    Gross margin                  $ 565,089                        $ 861,674
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    Plasma system sales and services are from WPC, (acquired April 17, 2007),
Alter Nrg's joint venture with Jacoby (from inception on August 2, 2007) and
engineering services provided by Alter Nrg for reactor design and process
engineering. In the prior quarter, plasma system sales and services consisted
solely of U.S. results from the WPC acquisition.
    WPC continuing operations include engineering, design, and equipment
sales of plasma arc gasification systems. Sales revenue is related to an
equipment sale in India, engineering service revenues, equipment parts sales
and revenue from licensing the WPC technology to the joint venture. For the
three month period ending September 30, 2007 sales revenues were $496,907
higher than the period from WPC acquisition on April 17 to June 30, 2007 as
the India equipment sale was near completion, parts sales increased and new
revenues for the quarter of $165,000 from Alter Nrg engineering services and
$137,920 from the joint venture. Going forward, management expects revenues to
increase as increased sales, marketing and business development processes are
implemented and as the plasma gasification market grows.
    The selling costs relate to direct materials and expenditures for
products and services, excluding labour, and reflect standard rates. Selling
costs are $228,403 higher for the three month period ended September 30, 2007
versus the period from WPC acquisition on April 17 to June 30, 2007 as
progress on the India equipment sale was near completion, parts sales were
higher in the quarter and due to subcontracting costs related to engineering
services provided by Alter Nrg.

    
    General and administrative expenses
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Three month period          Nine month period

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    G&A was $1,884,265 for the three month period ended September 30, 2007
versus $1,388,060 for the three month period ended June 30, 2007. The increase
in G&A of $496,205 for the three month period ended September 30, 2007 versus
the three month period ended June 30, 2007 relates primarily to an increase in
office costs as Alter Nrg moved in August 2007 to larger space to accommodate
its growth, salaries and wages from increased staffing as part of Alter Nrg's
corporate growth strategy, management investment in WPC business operations
and consulting fees related to recruitment and business development
activities.
    The largest G&A expenses in the nine month period relate to salaries of
$1,531,956, accrued bonuses of $548,540, general consulting costs of $373,795
and professional fees of $261,227. The remaining G&A is for office rent, Alter
Nrg's office move, employee benefits, business travel, information technology
costs and the general costs of setting up and maintaining an office.

    
    Interest income

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    Interest income of $210,388 and $418,760 for the three and nine month
periods ended September 30, 2007, respectively, relates primarily to term
deposits which are invested in short-term, interest-bearing investments with a
major Canadian chartered bank. The investments were made with net proceeds
received from the equity issuances in 2006 and January 2007; the Company's IPO
on April 17, 2007; and the IPO over-allotment on May 16, 2007.

    Income taxes

    The income tax recovery of $66,120 and $137,853 for the three and nine
month period ended September 30, 2007 relates to non-capital losses incurred
by WPC in the U.S. at a tax rate of 44%. It is estimated that WPC will use
these losses within the year as it has commercial operations and is projected
to have taxable income within the next fiscal year.
    The Company had a loss from operations in Canada for the three and nine
month periods ended September 30, 2007, which resulted in a corresponding
future income tax recovery. The Company took a full valuation allowance on the
future income tax asset and tax recovery, as without commercial operations it
cannot be considered more likely than not that the future income tax benefits
could be realized.

    
    Loss and cashflow used in operations

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    The consolidated loss for the three month period ended September 30, 2007
was $3,536,554 and for the nine month period ended September 30, 2007 was
$7,109,699. During the three month period ended September 30, 2007, $380,638
related to selling costs and $1,884,265 in G&A costs. The remaining amount
related to non-cash charges for depreciation and amortization of $2,179,647,
of which $2,163,993 related to amortization of deferred compensation expense
related to the acquisition, and stock-based compensation of $263,226. The loss
was offset by sales of $945,727 and interest income of $210,388. Looking
forward, management is improving the sales, marketing and business development
