Home > Press > Techtronic Industries North America Commits to GREEN Oil Product Partnership with Green Earth Technologies and Leading Home Center Chain

Abstract:
Techtronic Industries North America, Inc. (OTC:TTNDY), manufacturer of Ryobi® and Homelite® brand outdoor power equipment, in partnership with Green Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets:GETG), of Stamford, CT, have teamed up with a leading Home Center chain to introduce two new 2-cycle engine G-OIL™ mixes; plus a bar and chain oil lubricant that are 100% biodegradable and environmentally safe. Said Lee Sowell, President of Techtronic's Outdoor Division; "These are the first 2-cycle ‘Green Oil' products that perform better than or equal to synthetic oils, yet maintain higher engine performance and a cleaner engine when operating."

Techtronic Industries North America Commits to GREEN Oil Product Partnership with Green Earth Technologies and Leading Home Center Chain

ANDERSON, SC and STAMFORD, CT | Posted on June 19th, 2008

In comparison to other "Bio" or Organic oils the G-Eco Oil is the only bio-based oil that provides superior lubricity naturally, over conventional oils. G-OIL delivers superior performance, is safe for the environment, safe for your home and is made in the U.S.A.

Though some synthetic oil manufacturers claim "biodegradable," those oils do not achieve the same level of biodegradability, which is why G-OIL is rated "Ultimate Biodegradable" by ASTM standards and easily biodegrades within 28 days. Users of these new, competitively priced oils, which can be used in all domestic 2-cycle engines, will have up to 150 times less ash content, which equates to less exhaust particulates and a cleaner engine.

The new Green Oil products join a host of other superior performing, totally green products from Green Earth Technologies. All are made with American-grown based oils that utilize the powers of nanotechnology to deliver environmentally friendly products with no compromise, as the Company's motto states, "Save the Earth - Sacrifice Nothing."

Jeff Marshall, President and CEO of Green Earth Technologies, says, "Green Earth is excited to announce its newest partnership with TTI. It's a win-win relationship with extraordinary growth potential. This is a major turning point for Green Earth's position in the marketplace, and a huge acceleration of Techtronic's green initiatives."

G-OIL meets American Petroleum Institute (API) requirements for TC Rating for performance and engine protection. Test results showed that G-OIL met or exceeded the allowed tolerance of a benchmark reference oil on key performance criteria.
