China Recycling Energy Announces $10.9M Acquisition of Shenqiu Power Generation System
China Recycling Energy Corp. (NASDAQ: CREG) today announced that the Company expanded its waste-to-energy project portfolio with the acquisition of a power generation system.

Under the assets transfer agreement, Xi'an TCH purchased a set of 12 MW biomass power generation system from Shenqiu for RMB 70 million (approximately $10,937,500 USD) following the company's completion of the conversion of Shenqiu's non-operating coal fired power generation system into a biomass power generation system.

Upon completion of the lease, Xi'an TCH will transfer the biomass power generation system to Shenqiu at zero cost. Shenqiu, the seller and the customer, is located in Shenqiu county, part of Zhoukou City in Henan Province, PRC.
With this acquisition, the Company now has 13 waste-to-energy projects in operation totaling 133 MW and 2 waste-to-energy projects under construction totaling 55 MW.
