BlueFire Ethanol CEO: Landfill Ethanol Provides Two Climate Benefits for Price of One

Provides Low Emissions Fuel, Reduces Methane Emissions From Landfills

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2007 -- BlueFire Ethanol, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BFRE) Chief Executive Officer Arnold R. Klann released the following statement regarding today's House hearings on climate change and alternative fuels.

"BlueFire Ethanol commends House leaders for addressing the challenges of climate change by advancing renewable fuels that will reduce emissions that cause global warming. Just as in the Senate last week, we commend our Congressional leaders for advancing made-in-America biofuels as an important part of our energy future. While new technologies can and will play an important role going forward, BlueFire is ready to advance ethanol technologies from green waste and other cellulosic materials at landfills today. We are implementing proven, first-class cellulosic ethanol technologies that not only improve our environment, but also strengthen our energy security. And with California leading the effort to aggressively address climate change through progressive state action, BlueFire is proud to give leaders two benefits for the price of one when considering global warming.

"Our technology will convert widely available, inexpensive, organic materials such as agricultural residues, high-content biomass crops, wood residues, and cellulose from landfills into clean, renewable fuels. This process provides low-emissions fuels for cleaner cars and less pollution from our transportation sector. At the same time, our biorefinery located at landfill sites and using landfill cellulose also reduces the much more potent greenhouse gas, methane, by using post-sorted municipal solid waste as feedstock and available landfill gas to generate thermal and electricity needs.

"Both the Department of Energy and the California Energy Commission have supported the commercial viability of BlueFire's cellulosic conversion technology. We are proud of this acceptance and endorsement of our environmentally friendly alternative fuels and look forward to helping our leaders meet our ambitious energy goals."

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.
