Letter to Plastic2Oil Stockholders From Richard Heddle, Chief Executive Officer

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y., May 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

To our valued Plastic2Oil, Inc. (PTOI) stockholders:

I am pleased to provide you with this update regarding the business of Plastic2Oil, Inc. (P2O). As you know, on January 2, 2015, we announced that we had contracted to sell up to six processors to EcoNavigation LLC upon the completion of a pilot study. Shortly afterward, EcoNavigation presented P2O with several promising opportunities and currently P2O and EcoNavigation are involved in multiple, complex negotiations for the potential sale and implementation of P2O processors with several end-users and organizations.

P2O and EcoNavigation began discussions with a firm in the southern U.S. regarding a development project that has the potential for the deployment of more than 30 processors over the proposed project development period. This project has required significant attention from the P2O, EcoNavigation, and O'Brien & Gere project opportunity team. Assuming P2O consummates the deal, the anticipated testing requirements will be a three to five day run of the firm's specific feedstock. If testing is successful, we are expecting an initial purchase order for 12 processors for phase one of the project. In light of this new opportunity presented by EcoNavigation and the expanded scope of our relationship, we have agreed to extend our agreement with EcoNavigation for an additional ninety days under our current terms.

In addition to the above, a third opportunity for a three processor site, located in the northern states, is being worked on by the above mentioned project opportunity team, and is very close to completion. EcoNavigation continues final negotiations and work on structuring and financing.

Although there can be no assurance that our current negotiations will result in definitive agreements or successful sales, I am personally optimistic and so I wanted to share this information with you. I encourage all investors to review P2O's periodic filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission in order to keep apprised of any further developments.

Lastly, I am also pleased to inform you that P2O intends to engage O'Brien & Gere (www.OBG.com), one of the leading EPC consulting firms, for these upcoming opportunities. O'Brien & Gere's Advanced Manufacturing business should provide us the capability to scale-up our technology and integrate it into a fully operational manufacturing facility. In addition, its full-service engineering capabilities, project management and control system integration round out our capabilities to deliver efficient and cost-effective solutions to our customers.

I want to offer my personal thanks for the regular and extremely valuable contributions made by our employees, management, Board of Directors and investors. I also look forward to seeing you and sharing with you further developments at our 2015 annual stockholders meeting, which is being planned for late this summer. Formal notice and other details of the meeting will be presented in our proxy statement that will be made available to our stockholders and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Sincerely,

Richard Heddle, President & CEO
