BlueFire Ethanol Fuels Co-Sponsors the 4th Annual California Biomass Collaborative Forum March 27-29

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2007 -- The theme for this year's California Biomass Collaborative Forum is on advanced technologies for biomass and waste conversion. It is co-sponsored by the California Energy Commission, the California Integrated Waste Management Board, BlueFire Ethanol Fuels (PINKSHEETS: BFRE) and other industry leaders. The mission of the California Biomass Collaborative (CBC) is to enhance the sustainable management and development of biomass in California. To fulfill this mission, the CBC plans to administer a comprehensive statewide collaborative program to support and integrate efforts of the State in the advancement of efficient, safe, reliable, affordable, and environmentally sound biomass systems. The program is expected to concentrate the following:

--  Scientific research and innovation
--  Technology development, demonstration, and deployment
--  Education and training
BlueFire's Senior Vice President Necy Sumait will present and discuss the facets of ethanol production from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) at the Forum. Ms. Sumait has been an outspoken voice in the development of biofuels from cellulosic waste materials in California for many years and was a contributing author for the California Biomass Collaborative Report entitled "A Roadmap for Biomass Development in California."

Ms. Sumait stated, "We are excited about the recent groundswell of support for the deployment of a cellulosic ethanol industry. It is one industry that provides opportunities to address a myriad of current issues from energy independence to waste management to economic development and climate change concerns. California has a unique opportunity to lead a meaningful shift in the production of renewable fuels using its abundant biomass, most of which is now being buried in our landfills, to supply its large transportation fuel market. Everyone at BlueFire looks forward to playing a major role in the roll-out of this revolutionary change in the transportation fuel industry."

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.
