NEW YORK, NY, Aug 08 (Marketwire) -- SunSi Energies Inc. ("SunSi") (OTCQB: SSIE) (PINKSHEETS: SSIE), a renewable energy company and a provider of the specialty chemical trichlorosilane ("TCS"), today announced that it has scheduled a major European institutional roadshow as well as strategic business meetings, which will run approximately one week from the end of August 2012 through early September 2012. This European event follows a very successful series of recent investor meetings in North America where SunSi management presented the potential positive impact of TransPacific Energy Inc.'s ("TPE") patented core heat recovery technology to current and prospective investors. In addition, the Company also outlined future TPE initiatives and its planned aggressive expansion strategy for TPE's technology combined with targeting new synergistic acquisitions. The European roadshow is the first major institutional investor, and investor relations effort in which the Company has participated in to date. SunSi management looks forward to an excellent reception from some of the largest renewable energy investors in the world. Richard St-Julien, SunSi's Chairman and CEO, stated, "We are encouraged by our recent fund raising efforts and success, as well as with the level of interest expressed by potential European investors and strategic partners in SunSi. The TPE acquisition is the first step in a multi-pronged expansion plan which includes growing revenues organically as well as making opportunistic acquisitions in synergistic areas which will enable us to leverage our resources and create new revenue streams. For example, due to our relationships established in China over the past three years, we have already received numerous serious inquiries from local, government and industrial sources interested in installing TPE's heat recovery technology systems in China. We believe this is a vast untapped market with enormous need and upside potential for clean energy that is friendly to the environment." About SunSi Energies Inc. SunSi Energies is an international company whose products focus on the energy industry as well as related synergistic products. SunSi currently owns 45% of TransPacific Energy, Inc. ("TPE"), a U.S. based renewable energy technology provider, and expect to acquire controlling interest by mid-August. TPE's technology uses proprietary multiple component fluids that are environmentally sound, non-toxic and non-flammable. Custom formulated mixtures efficiently capture and convert heat directly from the heat source at temperatures ranging from 100 degrees F to 1000 degrees F. TPE's technology offers applications at broader temperature ranges than other energy recovery systems. TPE's systems, in certain applications, reduce operating and maintenance costs and significantly improve return on capital expenditures, thus making the purchase of waste heat recovery systems that previously yielded nominal savings, economically viable.

TCS is a chemical primarily used in the production of polysilicon, which is an essential raw material in the production of solar cells for PV panels that convert sunlight to electricity. TCS is considered to be the first product in the solar PV value chain before polysilicon, and is also the principal source of ultrapure silicon in the semiconductor industry.
