BlackLight Power Inc. Announces Independent Replication of New Energy Source

    Rowan University confirms BlackLight's new disruptive energy source

    CRANBURY, N.J., Oct. 20 /CNW/ -- BlackLight Power (BLP) Inc. today
announced the successful independent replication and validation of its 1,000
watt and 50,000 watt reactors based on its proprietary new clean energy
technology. This follows BLP's May announcement that it had successfully
tested a new non-polluting energy source.

    BLP's 50,000 watt reactor generated over one million joules of energy in
a precise measurement made by Rowan University engineers, led by Dr. Peter
Jansson.  The independent study included full characterization of a
proprietary solid fuel to generate the energy, before and after the reaction.

    "Our experiments on the BlackLight technology have demonstrated that
within the range of measurement errors the significant energy generated, which
is 100 times the energy that could be attributed to measurement error, cannot
be explained by other known sources like combustion or nuclear energy," says
Dr. Jansson, professor of engineering at Rowan University. "The ability to
generate such tremendous power in this controlled process demonstrates that
the claim by BlackLight Power that it is able to demonstrate repeatable heat
experiments based on their technology can be replicated by independent

    The BLP process continues to be replicated and validated by independent
scientists and has received interest from financial institutions and power
utility plant operators around the world. BLP plans on licensing its

    "This is the result that the world has been waiting for to engage this
technology and provides validation that the energy generated using the
BlackLight technology is no longer an academic argument," says Randell Mills,
Chairman, CEO, and President of BlackLight Power Inc. "The BlackLight Process
generates more than 200 times the energy of burning hydrogen that can be
harnessed to replace the thermal power in coal, oil, gas and nuclear power
plants. These experimental results prove that the new power source discovered
in our labs has the possibility to make a profound impact in our current
energy-strapped economy."

    Dr. Jansson's Rowan University team conducted 55 tests of the prototypes,
including controls and calibrations, during a nine-month study.  Test results
indicated that energy generation was proportional to the total amount of solid
fuel, and only one percent of the one million joules of the energy released
could be accounted for by previously known chemistry.  These results matched
earlier tests conducted at BlackLight's Research and Development Center, in
Cranbury New Jersey.

    Michael Jordan, former CEO of Westinghouse and current board member of
BlackLight Power, says "The offsite replication and independent testing
announced by Dr. Peter Jansson and his team of scientists underscore the
business viability and impact of BlackLight's new energy source as the
opportune replacement of coal-based fuels. It will go down as one of the most
important advances in the field of energy in the last fifty years."

    Rowan University's Dr. Jansson has released a report outlining the full
documentation and results of the off-site replication and independent testing
of the BlackLight Process that is available at:
