NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 03, 2015) - Clean Coal Technologies, Inc., (OTC PINK: CCTC) ("CCTI" or the "Company"), an emerging cleaner-energy company utilizing patented technology to convert raw coal into a cleaner burning and more efficient fuel, today announced that they have signed a binding term sheet to license their Pristine "M" Technology to the Diamond Energy Group, LLC, a newly formed consortium of coal technology and engineering expertise. Under the terms of the Agreement the Diamond Energy Group has a six month option to license the Pristine M Technology for a designated site in Wyoming. The terms of the transaction include CCTI receiving a license fee of $1,000,000 per one million tons of capacity and a royalty of $1.50 per ton. The option is exercisable six months following the commercialization of CCTI's Pristine "M" technology.
Diamond Energy will also be granted an exclusive license to develop and deploy the CCTI Technology throughout Wyoming and Montana in a joint venture with CCTI whereby license fees and royalties are split 50%-50%. In return for the option and in addition to the license fees and royalties, Diamond Energy shall make three payments to CCTI under an additional structured note that is being finalized. The financial highlights include a $250,000 payable on or before September 15, 2015, $250,000 on or before October 15, 2015, and $800,000 on or before November 15, 2015. These funds shall be for the exclusive purpose of retiring the remaining convertible notes and as such a major step towards further cleaning up CCTI's balance sheet.
"We are receiving a substantial amount of interest from the Powder River Basin and have recently signed two more NDA's with strong groups looking to capitalize on the successful commissioning of our technology. Signing this term sheet with a group that has considerable exposure to the coal industry and political systems throughout Montana and Wyoming will help to accelerate our roll out in the region. CCTI has attracted interest and investments from around the world and we are very excited to have finally signed a domestic agreement that will complement the testing of our technology at AES that is focused on PRB coal. We remain firmly commited to the coal industry in the United States and we believe that this transaction will provide CCTI an opportunity to commercially demonstrate the effectiveness of our technology and the first step to providing assistance to the coal industry across the US and globally. As the interest from multiple parties in the region gathers momentum we can see a clear path to commercialization based upon the results of the testing at AES. This is another major step forward for our company and we are looking forward to a successful relationship with the consortium," said Robin Eves, CEO and President of CCTI.
