NEW YORK, March 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- El Maniel International Inc (Pink Sheets:EMLL) announces today that the company has entered into a series of discussion with U.S. based company currently operating between Baltimore, Maryland and Washington D.C. to produce biofuels at its oil terminal facility located in Luzerne County, Eastern Pennsylvania. "Initial discussions on the renewable energy initiative entail using the Eastern Pennsylvania oil terminal facility with five above ground tanks with storage capacity of over 2.5 million gallons as the platform to produce plant and fat based bio-energy product," according to Jamie Khoo, CEO of El Maniel. "Specifically, we are looking at converting flax seeds and animal fats into clean burning bio-diesel and as crude oil prices continue surging above $100 per barrel, clearly we are moving in the right direction and this green energy business is designated to become another profitable income stream for El Maniel."

"The U.S. based Company and El Maniel are very excited about the strategic partnership opportunity and very optimistic of the underlying prospects of the Eastern Pennsylvania oil terminal facility situated next to the scenic Susquehanna river," states Jamie Khoo. "We are very confident that our preliminary discussions with the U.S. based company will be formalized soon to initiate the eco-friendly and lucrative business to simultaneously enhance the value of the oil terminal facility as well as shareholders' value."
