BlueFire Ethanol CEO to Discuss Green Waste-to-Ethanol at Cellulosic Ethanol Summit

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - October 2, 2007) - BlueFire Ethanol Fuels, Inc. (OTCBB: BFRE) CEO Arnold R. Klann will discuss BlueFire's patented, proven technology to profitably convert urban green waste destined for landfills to ethanol at the upcoming Cellulosic Ethanol summit in Washington, D.C. Mr. Klann will participate in a panel, "Non-Enzymatic Biorefinery Developer Community's Plan and Activities," at 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16, 2007.

The panel will discuss:

--  Projects and activities of the non-enzymatic ethanol developer
--  How developers are working with other players in the value chain to
    move these projects forward;
--  What technologies are being deployed;
--  Lessons to be learned from current projects; and
--  Opportunities these projects create for other industry players.

BlueFire Ethanol is one of six ethanol companies recently awarded funding from the U.S. Department of Energy for its planned ethanol production facility co-located adjacent to the El Sobrante landfill in Corona, California. The facility will produce approximately 17 million gallons of cellulosic ethanol per year from municipal solid waste. In addition to the El Sobrante project, BlueFire expects to obtain all necessary permits to commence construction of a smaller facility near Lancaster California late this year. The Lancaster plant will produce 3.1 million gallons of cellulosic ethanol per year from the green fraction of municipal solid waste.

BlueFire Ethanol holds the exclusive North American license to employ the Arkenol Process Technology, a patented, commercially viable and profitable system that transforms cellulosic waste into usable ethanol. As a result, BlueFire is uniquely positioned to set the industry standard in converting waste materials -- such as wood waste, green waste, straw, switchgrass, and corn stover -- into ethanol.

About BlueFire Ethanol Fuels, Inc.:

BlueFire Ethanol Fuels, Inc. is established to deploy the commercially ready, patented, and proven Arkenol Technology Process for the profitable conversion of cellulosic ("Green Waste") waste materials to ethanol, a viable alternative to gasoline. BlueFire's use of the Arkenol Process Technology positions it as the only cellulose-to-ethanol company worldwide with demonstrated production of ethanol from urban trash (post-sorted MSW), rice and wheat straws, wood waste and other agricultural residues. Our goal is to develop and operate high-value carbohydrate-based transportation fuel production facilities worldwide. These "biorefineries" will convert widely available, inexpensive, organic materials such as agricultural residues, high-content biomass crops, wood residues, and cellulose from MSW into ethanol. BlueFire intends to build a multinational company that leads the world in producing biobased transportation fuels. Its business will encompass development activities leading to the construction and long-term operation of production facilities while maintaining technological advantage and ownership of the process technology and all its improvements. Ethanol will be produced from biorefinery facilities opportunistically constructed on or near landfills, waste collection and waste separation sites. Each facility will deploy the proprietary technology, which uses all cellulosic waste materials traditionally disposed of in landfills as feedstock.
