Calgary, Alberta (Accesswire) – December 17, 2018 - Sparta Capital Ltd. (TSXV: SAY) (the “Corporation” or “Sparta”) is pleased to provide the following supplementary information in relation to its 50/50 joint venture (the “Joint Venture”) with Pi.Eco Canada Ltd. (“Pi.Eco”), earlier disclosed on December 13, 2018.

The initial project (the “Project”) for the Joint Venture will be the construction of a facility (the “Facility”)in the Greater Toronto Area, to re-direct some 18,000 tons per year of waste plastic from landfill -converting it to synthetic fuels, such as, SAE Grade II synthetic diesel fuel. Discussions are ongoing to obtain project financing to manufacture the flagship plastic to fuel technology (the “PTF Equipment”) with an expectation of securing the same in the early part of 2019. In anticipation of this, the venture parties are simultaneously working to secure long-term availability of plastic feedstock, and to enter into a land lease for the development of the Facility where the PTF Equipment will be operated.

“Despite technological advances over recent years, there remains a portion of the plastic waste stream where the inability to separate plastics can make recovery unfeasible – much of this non-recycled plastict hen becomes land filled. However, the Joint Venture has identified a new plastic to fuel technology that will play a key role in the commercialization of the Project. Items such as, timing required for pretreatment of feedstock, varying evaporation and distillation requirements, and refining and final blending are all factors that drastically impact the commercialization of industrial scale operations such as the Project, and which the PTF Equipment has looked at addressing,”

said John O’Bireck, President of Sparta.

The benefits presented by the Joint Venture are two-fold: (i) transforming non-recycled plastic into avaluable commodity and (ii) creating a reliable source of alternative energy. A primary goal of the JointVenture is the further exploration of the newest generation of plastic to fuel technologies and how theJoint Venture can complement and support the existing mechanical recycling infrastructure for plastics.
