Global Clean Energy Inc. Phase 1 Gasification Testing Successfully Completed

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - October 21, 2010) -  Global Clean Energy Inc. (OTCBB: GCEI) has completed gasification testing of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and industrial organic feedstocks on behalf of the City of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Qc. A full report of the tests and result analysis was compiled and submitted to the city. This report will be included in their submission to the FMV (Federal Municipal Green Fund) as the first step of a three phase project to reduce landfill of municipal waste.

In December 2009, the gasifier was moved from the Cascades plant in Kingsey Falls, Qc to JR Mecanique for on-site testing in the City of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield. Venting, cooling and collection lines were installed, as well a high temperature boiler to provide the steam for the reaction.

"The development of our proprietary steam-reforming gasifier has been an exciting and highly rewarding experience. Implementing the technology has strengthened our core group and led to new partnerships in engineering, financing and R&D," said Earl Azimov, GCEI President.

A successful series of tests were conducted on waste feedstocks over a 5 month period between March and July 2010. The materials tested included coal, plastic, rubber, MSW, grass cuttings and industrial waste wood. For each series of tests, gas samples were collected and sent to the Canadian Metallurgy labs (CANMET) in Ottawa for analysis.

"While our goal was to show the feasibility of reducing landfill by gasifying solid waste, the consistent production of syngas, with all the feedstocks tested, validated the robustness of our technology for this application," said Philip Azimov, GCEI's Chief Scientific Officer.

While testing has been completed, the gasifier remains operational and GCE is offering its services to any company that might wish to evaluate the potential of producing energy from their waste material.

"We have a gasifier that can be operational within hours -- a unique device -- and we welcome the opportunity to showcase its potential. As pleased as we are with our success, our focus is moving forward quickly to build a pilot unit on the scale of 20-25 tons per day, which we know, has commercial viability for both municipal and industrial applications," said Kenneth Adessky, GCEI's CFO.

About the company: Global Clean Energy Inc. has offices in Houston Texas and Montreal, Canada. In addition to its gasification project, GCEI has developed a proprietary vortex AirPump™ technology for feedstock preparation, coal slurry and other industrial waste clean-up processes and, in collaboration with BioCAST Systems Inc., Concordia University and le Ministère d'agriculture, pêcheries et alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ), developing new techniques for purifying agricultural waste water.
