Nuclear Solutions, Inc. Announces Waste-to-Energy Hybrid Approach to Bioethanol Production

Company Launches Liquidyne Fuels, Inc. to Produce Virtually Fossil-Free Ethanol

WASHINGTON, DC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 22, 2006 -- As reported in its most recently filed 10Q-SB report on August 21, 2006, Nuclear Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: NSOL) has launched Liquidyne Fuels, Inc., to establish multiple bioethanol plants using Startech Environmental Corporation's Plasma Converter technology as part of a waste-to-energy hybrid approach for bioethanol production. The Liquidyne Fuels business model virtually eliminates the use of fossil fuels such as natural gas and coal that are normally consumed during the production of conventional fermentation-based ethanol.

This approach to bioethanol production is being pursued concurrently and in conjunction with Nuclear Solutions' and Fuel Frontiers' ongoing plans for waste-to-ethanol synthesis facilities. Liquidyne Fuels intends to locate new bioethanol production facilities domestically and internationally, with initial focus on the east and west coasts of the United States.

In tandem with ethanol synthesis from waste sources, Nuclear Solutions now intends to use a waste-to-energy hybrid approach to dry-mill bioethanol production that would employ Plasma Converters supplied by Startech Environmental Corporation to accomplish the virtual elimination of fossil fuels in the production cycle. This approach to bioethanol production will be executed by Liquidyne Fuels, Inc.

Nuclear Solutions, Inc. President and CEO Patrick Herda explains: "We are pleased to unveil this next phase of our strategy in the ethanol business. Burning fossil fuels for the production of ethanol is old-school and counterintuitive when producing an environmentally friendly fuel additive. We intend to produce a more environmentally conscious brand of ethanol, which is why we plan on doing this fossil-free.

"As our business model reflects, we believe at least two promising avenues are attractive and complementary for the production of ethanol. One of the ways we are pursuing is the synthesis of ethanol from wastes that led to the formation of our subsidiary Fuel Frontiers. The other way is to apply new innovations to more conventional approaches in order to overcome existing limitations and some of the barriers that previously limited the worthwhile production of ethanol within key geographic markets.

"We believe the combination of these two symbiotic approaches makes economic sense and helps position us to fulfill our goal of maximizing ethanol production to meet the ever-increasing demand for fuel."

Nuclear Solutions, Inc. is an innovative technology development company committed to exploring, developing, and commercializing viable products in the areas of nanotechnology, environmental technology, homeland security and defense, and, most recently, alternative fuels. In August 2005, Nuclear Solutions, Inc. established Fuel Frontiers, Inc. (FFI), a subsidiary implementing its own unique business model to utilize commercially available and proprietary technologies to transform low-value, end-of-life carbonaceous waste materials such as waste coal, used tires, wood wastes, biomass, discarded corn stalks and other agricultural by-products, into high-value, environmentally friendly, clean-burning ethanol. With its global Strategic Alliance Agreement with Connecticut-based Startech Environmental Corporation, FFI gains access to Startech's innovative, proven and proprietary Plasma Converter™ System, which is proposed for use in planned facilities to transform feedstock materials into ethanol. To diversify its ethanol production model beyond ethanol synthesis from waste sources, Nuclear Solutions is also pursuing innovations in bioethanol production through its subsidiary Liquidyne Fuels, Inc. Currently, Fuel Frontiers, Inc. and Liquidyne Fuels, Inc. report their operations and financial results on a consolidated basis within Nuclear Solutions, Inc.'s public filings.

The matters discussed in this press release are forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties such as our plans, objectives, expectations, and intentions. You can identify these forward-looking statements by our use of words such as "pursue," "plans," "intends to locate," "initial focus," "virtually eliminate," "next phase," "intend," "believe," "that can be," "helps position," "by launching," "also pursuing," "proposed for use," "is also pursuing" or other similar words or phrases. Some of these statements include discussions regarding our future business strategy and our ability to generate revenue, income and cash flow.

With regards to forward-looking statements on the proposed waste-to-ethanol facility, a facility like this has never before been constructed or operated and there are inherent risks associated with the establishment of such new operations. There could be unexpected problems or delays in the funding, construction and operation of the facility. There is no guarantee that we will be successful in raising the capital required for this project through the issuance of tax-free bonds discussed herein. While we believe that the appropriate technologies for waste-to-ethanol conversion are commercially available, we cannot guarantee that commercially available technologies will be suitable for producing ethanol in the proposed Fuel Frontiers, Inc. facility.

Overall, actual future results for Nuclear Solutions, Inc., and its subsidiary Fuel Frontiers, Inc., could differ significantly from statements contained in the press release. Factors that could adversely affect actual results and performance include, among others, the companies' limited operating history, dependence on key management, financing requirements, technical difficulties commercializing any projects, government regulation, technological change, and competition. In any event, undue reliance should not be placed on any forward-looking statements, which apply only as of the date of this press release. Additionally, patent pending status or licensing does not guarantee that a patent will issue or that the technology will be commercially successful. Accordingly, reference should be made to Nuclear Solutions, Inc.'s periodic filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, also available through the web site at
