First Large-Scale Trial For Manufacturing Diesel From Waste Oil Successful

POINT ROBERTS, WASHINGTON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Aug 08, 2006 -- Clyvia Inc. (OTCBB: CLYV) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Clyvia Technology GmbH ("Clyvia Technology"), successfully converted 3 metric tons (approximately 3.3 US tons) of waste oil into 2,000 liters (approximately 528 US gal.) of light heating fuel in a large scale trial run of its pilot plant. Light heating fuel is chemically identical to diesel fuel and the results of this trial run confirm the results of laboratory tests previously conducted by Clyvia Technology.

During the trial run, the waste oil was pre-heated to 170 degrees C prior to being fed into the pilot plant's reactor. Using a process known as fractional depolymerization, once the waste oil was placed into the reactor, it was heated to a temperature of 400 degrees C. The diesel produced by the reactor process was then extracted into a distillation tower. The fractional depolymerization process used in Clyvia Technology's pilot plant is similar to the cracking of crude oil. Using this process, Clyvia Technology was able to produce a volume of 2,000 liters of diesel from the 3 metric tons of waste oil fed into the system.

Initial gas-chromatographic tests conducted by Clyvia Technology have shown that the diesel produced by the trial contain the expected distribution of hydrocarbon chains. Density measurements conducted by Clyvia Technology have also been positive. Clyvia Technology has submitted the diesel output produced during the trial run to an external independent laboratory where it will be tested to check if it complies with diesel norm DIN EN 590 (the European standard for diesel fuel).

Clyvia Technology GmbH is a subsidiary of Clyvia Inc., a Nevada, USA corporation. Clyvia's shares are traded on over-the-counter market in the United States (OTCBB: CLYV) as well as on the stock market in Frankfurt (WKN: A0F59X, ISIN: US18975K1088).

This Press Release may contain, in addition to historical information, forward-looking statements. These forward looking statements are based on management's expectations and beliefs, and may involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results to be materially different from the results implied herein. In particular, readers are cautioned that Clyvia Technology is still in the process of developing recycling/processing systems based on its fractional depolymerization technology. Clyvia Technology has not yet developed any commercially marketable recycling/processing systems and there are no assurances that it will be able to do so in the future. Furthermore, there are no assurances that independent laboratory tests will confirm that the diesel produced during the above trial run will comply with standardized requirements for diesel fuel.

Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements made in this Press Release.
