Renowned Biodiesel Producer Recently Profiled in Newsweek to Deliver Keynote Address at Infocast's Biodiesel Finance & Investment Summit in January

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 27, 2007) - Martin Tobias, the President of biodiesel manufacturer, Imperium Renewables, who was recently profiled in the Newsweek article, "It's All About Energy, Stupid!" will be the Keynote Speaker at Infocast's upcoming Biodiesel Finance & Investment Summit, scheduled for January 14-16, 2008 at the Princeton Club in New York City.

In the article, which chronicled the growing effect of renewable energy on the presidential race, Mr. Tobias, a former Microsoft executive and digital-media pioneer, observed that the search for alternative fuels was the largest technological opportunity the world has seen since the dawn of the personal computer. "We are now where Bill Gates was before he left Harvard," stated Mr. Tobias who founded his company in 2005 and is already considered one of the leading exponents in the alternative fuels arena. Earlier this year, Imperium filed papers to go public in addition to opening the country's largest biodiesel refinery on the Puget Sound.

As the Summit's Keynote Speaker on the morning of Tuesday, January 15th, Mr. Tobias will be joined by two other distinguished pioneers in the renewable energy field: James Eiler, the Managing Director of First National Investment Banking (who will offer the luncheon address), and Gene Gebolys, the President & CEO of World Energy Alternatives (who will provide the Keynote Speech for the morning of Wednesday, January 16th). They will be joined by a roster of 33 leaders in the biodiesel and finance and investment communities who will use the Summit to detail their success to date and consider their strategy for the future.

A workshop, "How To Finance A Biodiesel Project," will precede the Summit on Monday, January 14th and will feature a distinguished faculty of industry experts.
