BlueFire announced the July submission of its NASDAQ application at the shareholder meeting. Arnie Klann stated, "BlueFire chose the NASDAQ Exchange as the next logical step for several reasons. One, the NASDAQ uses the market maker system which BlueFire feels is superior in many respects to the specialist system. Two, it will enable BlueFire to retain its current trading symbol BFRE or 'Be Free' as it is referred to. We have always felt at BlueFire that our ticker symbolized our goal as a company to 'Be Free' from foreign oil."

About us:

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.
