USSEC Ready for Green Fuel Production

US Sustainable Energy Corp announced today the completed assembly of their first official reactor system located at the new USSEC Bioenergy plant and fuel production facility in Natchez, Mississippi. Named FREEUS, the first reactor includes a number of refinements, component upgrades, and process improvements designed by management and consulting engineers since introducing the prototype last year.

The new reactor is capable of producing 6000 gallons of biofuel daily, converting five gallons of quality fuel from every bushel of soybean stock - a conversion ratio three times more effective than the creation of any traditional biodiesel. The USSEC biofuel also inherits none of the shortcomings of its competitors, features weather resistance up to -90 degrees Fahrenheit, a BTU rating similar to petroleum diesel, and the complete absence of any unwanted residue with no corrosive attributes.

USSEC's "Rivera Process" was featured this weekend on Channel 13, WHO TV, in Iowa, in a special news cast that presented how low cost energy production is being applied to the creation of ethanol. The video piece, located at highlighted the impact and importance of USSEC's technology, along with an overview of how it will be applied to partnering company Diversified Ethanol.

U.S. Sustainable is planning an official commissioning ceremony for later this month to kick off fuel production, to include expected visits from government officials, foreign dignitaries, members of the press, and senior journalists from national trade magazines in the power, petroleum and environmental sectors. Special attendees will also include invited power brokers and prospective clients presenting contract opportunities.

The FREEUS reactor is the first of more than 200 planned reactor tubes scheduled for installation over the next 12 months at the Natchez facility, with further announcements on additional site locations for 2008 expected by March. FREEUS stands for "Free U.S.", a USSEC motto referring to the stranglehold that overseas countries have on the United States through our dependence on foreign oil sources, and a statement of USSEC's commitment to counter that reliance through its proprietary energy advancements.
