BioCentric Energy Board of Directors Approves Funding for Mason City

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - BioCentric Energy, Inc. (BCEI) is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors unanimously approved funding to facilitate the first Cellulosic Ethanol plant utilizing the 'Rivera Process' at BCEI's Mason City, Iowa, location. The Rivera Hydrolysis/Pyrolysis (HP) sublicense was provided to BCEI by Sustainable Power Corp. (PINKSHEETS: SSTP), the primary master license holder.

This Rivera HP Solution will use a combination of DDGS (the slag or by-product of ethanol production) and imperfect raw Soy Beans to produce and deliver a high BTU liquid, biogas, and char. The high BTU liquid will be scrubbed and converted into ethanol. BCEI has negotiated favorable terms for the use of the biogas by a factory located within ten miles of our plant. The char will be shipped to a local cement factory for fuel in their furnace to reduce their costs of production.

Jack Tortorice, President of BioCentric Energy, Inc., stated, "The Rivera Hydrolysis/Pyrolysis Solution delivers a new cost-effective paradigm to the renewable energy world." Mr. Tortorice further elaborated, "With 16 Ethanol plants within a one-hundred mile radius, this modest facility is but the first of an ambitious, yet achievable business plan for rapid plant deployment, which will replicate this low-cost Cellulosic Ethanol solution throughout our great country."

Mr. Tortorice went on to note, "The Mason City facility will immediately be utilized for the delivery of E-Diesel (OD-66)*. Until our Iowa facility is operational, the unique blending component generated by the Rivera Hydrolysis/Pyrolysis Solution will be manufactured in Natchez, and then shipped to Mason City to fulfill blending production requirements for over 58 million gallons per year of OD-66."
