Former Pratt & Whitney Sr. Vice President Dr. David E. Crow Joins U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. Board of Directors

NATCHEZ, MS -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2006 -- U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: USSE) (USSEC or the 'Company') today announced that Dr. David E. Crow, former Sr. Vice President of Pratt & Whitney's Engineering organization, has joined USSEC's Board of Directors.

"Dr. David Crow's extensive background with Pratt & Whitney is one of the many reasons we wanted him on the Board of Directors," said John Rivera, USSEC's CEO. "His addition, among many others planned, will help attract other top industry talent to our Company, further bolstering our Board of Directors, management and executive teams."

"U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. is one of the companies that I most admire," said Dr. David E. Crow. "I'm really looking forward to working with the Company and USSEC's Board of Directors."

Dr. Crow joined Pratt & Whitney in 1966, rising to the position of Senior Vice President of Pratt & Whitney's Engineering organization in May 1997, where he was responsible for the design, development, validation and certification of all Pratt & Whitney large commercial engines, military engines and rocket products. He also led the research and development of advanced technologies systems to meet future aircraft requirements. Dr. Crow previously held the position of Senior Vice President for Pratt & Whitney's Large Commercial Engines organization which included the PW4000 and JT9D high thrust family of products.

Dr. Crow is a past secretary of the Society of Automotive Engineers, and a member of both ASME and AIAA. In addition to serving as past president of Pi Tau Sigma, he has served on the Engineering Advisory Board at Clarkson University and is an elected member of the University of Missouri-Rolla Academy of Mechanical Engineers. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Rolla with a B.S. in mechanical engineering and from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a M.S. in mechanical engineering. Dr. Crow is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, elected for his leadership in the engineering design of high-bypass-ratio gas turbine engines for aircraft.

About U.S. Sustainable Energy

USSEC holds patent-pending technology for a new breakthrough biofuel and carbon-based fertilizer. USSEC has successfully demonstrated the most cost effective method of producing biofuel estimated at $.50/gallon according to exhaustive studies and independent Lab confirmation. The company has developed the process, units and catalyst that will transform agricultural biomass into biofuel and fertilizer. This technology offers a solution for foreign oil dependence, balancing industrial and agricultural concerns with environmental issues and stabilizing and eventually reversing global greenhouse gas emissions. USSEC's research and development has successfully demonstrated the core technology in its fully functional facility located in Port Gibson, MS. The company is currently pursuing fully scalable implementation and deployment at further locations. Unlike other biomass gasification, the USSEC process can operate at a variety of scale, converting even waste biomass into fuel and fertilizer. The fuel produced will ultimately be more valuable than ethanol or methanol, and the USSEC process can convert biomass materials at an efficiency that cannot be matched by currently planned operations. In addition, unlike virtually all other approaches for biomass to energy, which deplete soil nutrients, the USSEC process restores and enhances soil mineral and carbon content. As a direct result of this revolutionary approach to integrated energy and fertilizer production from biomass, the USSEC process effectively removes Greenhouse Gases from the atmosphere, and can do so profitably before the value of Green Certificates and Carbon Credits are considered.
