PetroSun Announces Recent Algae-to-Biofuel Development

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - PetroSun, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PSUD) announced today that the company has advanced as a team member to the award consideration phase for the development of jet fuel derived from algae. We anticipate the final award negotiation process to commence after June 30, 2008.

"Our shareholders should be aware of the important role PetroSun has ascended to within the algae based sustainable fuels industry," stated Gordon LeBlanc, Jr., CEO of PetroSun. "It is frustrating that we are restricted to this generic release of information today based solely on the current status of the alternative jet fuel program. Being a team player is something we understand; being politically correct is not on our agenda during what should be a period of an all out effort to succeed in the development of global sustainable energy resources. PetroSun will continue to move forward independently and with industry partners to fulfill the commercial promise of algae derived biofuels."
