Raven Engages Eco-Energy for Ethanol Offtake Agreement

PARAMUS, NEW JERSEY--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - Raven Biofuels International Corporation (OTCBB:RVBF) and Eco-Energy have agreed to proceed with an agreement to sell 100% of its ethanol production from its newly announced Washington State cellulosic ethanol plant directly to Eco-Energy. Eco-Energy, a Franklin, TN based business, operates on a foundation to ensure the efficient availability of affordable, renewable and environmentally friendly energy. Eco-Energy provides full marketing and logistical support for ethanol manufacturers like Raven. Eco currently has over 1 Billion gallons per year under contract in North America.

Eco-Energy is willing to make a commitment to Raven to purchase all or substantially all of the cellulosic ethanol produced from the previously announced Washington plant for the next 10 years upon execution of a conclusive agreement. "Companies like Raven are critical to creating alternative energy solutions for America. We believe the partnership between Raven Biofuels and Eco-Energy will be an important part of the advancement of the renewable fuels industry." noted Eco-Energy's Chief Operating Officer, Andy Sallee.

"Ethanol made from biomass is much cleaner and is positioned to become the transportation fuel of choice." said John Sams, Raven's Chief Operating Officer, "We are excited to have Eco-Energy as our partner and look forward to the successful production and distribution of cellulosic ethanol."

Ethanol made from biomass could cut greenhouse gases responsible for global warming by a large margin. Several recent studies conclude that cellulosic biofuels reduce greenhouse gases by over 80%.

Raven Biofuels International Corporation intends to become a global renewable energy company whose principal focus is converting waste biomass in the low cost production of cellulosic ethanol, and derivative chemicals.
