Quote From Press Conference

The Secretary of State and President of the National Commission of Energy, Licentiate Arístides Fernández Zucco, who Pointed out "the importance for the country of the reactor, because the same one foretells a great change for the economy of the world."

The event was reported in at least three major local newspapers, and videotaped for release to worldwide media outlets. A video feed taken on site in the Dominican Republic can be viewed here: Press coverage received can be viewed here: and

The presentation centered around showing how the USSE process could be utilized using various local feedstocks, like sugar cane, nuts, and other native oilseeds, to help alleviate the Dominican Republic's energy demand and economy problems that arise from the demand. USSE delivered a test reactor to the site for a live demonstration of the technology. This demonstration came after two visits by Doroteo Rodríguez, Director of CNE, to U.S. Sustainable Energy's Natchez, MS headquarters, where he witnessed the "Rivera Process" firsthand, validating it could create nearly three times the quantity of fuel of other biofuel conversion processes available today.

"After witnessing the process firsthand in USSE's Natchez, MS facility on several occasions, I felt like it was the solution for one of the Dominican Republic's largest problems, which is energy production and consumption," stated Doroteo Rodriguez. "Utilizing the 'Rivera Process,' the Dominican Republic and any other small or underdeveloped country could become energy independent using local feedstocks, thus reinforcing their own economy and providing economic sustainability for but not limited to farmers, the new workforce that would be needed to operate and maintain the facility and all supporting infrastructure and support for this great cause."

"We have begun to work closely with government officials of the Dominican Republic to find the best means of commercializing and installing our technology," stated John Rivera, President and CEO of U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. "After successfully testing over 15 native feedstocks from soy to sugar cane and other various oilseeds, we have validated that there would be no reason why the local crops could not support their own energy independence by utilizing them in conjunction with the 'Rivera Process.' We are working closely with the delegation from the presentation to ensure we make this a reality as quickly as possible. We will make further disclosures and update our shareholders as soon as possible."

About U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp.

U.S. Sustainable Energy offers a revolutionary new energy process that creates three times more fuel per feedstock unit than any other biofuel process. The company has engineered the first bio-renewable fuel able to serve as a replacement to diesel, with none of the negative traits associated with competitive green fuels. The USSEC biofuel is furthermore created at a nominal cost as the byproduct of producing organic fertilizer from recycled waste products, a discovery made during research into agricultural biomass now known as the "Rivera Process." The technology offers a solution to foreign oil dependence, significant reduction to the cost of electricity and ethanol production, and the eventual reversal of greenhouse gas emissions.

Management and current operations are focused on leveraging the superior performance and low cost of the fertilizer, biogas and biofuel within bundled plant operations, turnkey energy contracts, ethanol production, and other critical applications that rely on energy as a major cost component.
