University Provides Further Validation of USSEC Biofuel Discovery

U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. Hosts Visitors From Department of Biological Sciences From Alcorn State University

NATCHEZ, MS -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2007 -- U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: USSE) announces today further validation tests completed by independent researchers and visiting academia at USSEC's bio-energy plant in Natchez, Mississippi.

Visiting from Alcorn State University, Dr. Willie Humphrey, Ph.D., Wildlife Ecologist, and Emma Jackson, M.S., Biologist / Assistant Phytoremediation Researcher, were on site to observe and provide further validation of USSEC's "Rivera Process," as well as baseline yield data from the company's biofuel production capabilities. Both members of Alcorn State University (ASU) were in attendance due to their personal involvement in identifying cost-effective clean renewable resources for the future.

"It is always our pleasure to host members of the scientific community that work selflessly to identify alternative fuel sources and emerging technologies that will change the world," stated USSEC CEO John Rivera. "Their efforts in drawing global visibility to real and existing solutions provide the framework for accelerated research across many related fields, and contribute greatly to the adoption rates by society as a whole."

The independent validation process included a series of production, performance, and physical property tests, aimed at identifying both the quality and usability of the USSEC biofuel and direct byproducts. The team observed firsthand the simplified "Rivera Process" converting 20 pounds of soybeans into 11.42 liquid pounds, 5.31 pounds of ash or solid material, and 3.27 pounds of biogas -- including just over two gallons of biofuel, providing a minimum yield of five gallons of green fuel per bushel of soybeans.

In another demonstration it was noted that the fuel does not clog engines, flows at temperatures lower than -70° F, and remains liquefied at temperatures of -90° F. During the performance tests it was shown that the fuel burns very cool and does not degrade engine performance. It was also noted in the demonstration that it can be used 100% in diesel engines and as a 50/50% blend in gasoline engines without retrofit or modification. No gum deposit or residue formed, and these qualities indicated that the USSEC Biofuel shows great promises for usage in cars and trucks, as well as power generation.

"U.S. Sustainable Energy using the 'Rivera Process' has placed the solution to our energy problems on the front burner, and the flame is on high," remarked Dr. Humphrey, a Wildlife Ecologist at Alcorn State University. "We believe that this is the sparkle that will ignite the flame of deliverance of America from Foreign oil dependency. We must make a transition from fossil fuels to other energy sources and do it before current supplies run low. This is where the USSEC group of companies and their production of biofuel from soybeans fit in."

Alcorn State University joins a number of high profiled power companies, municipalities, and leading energy brokers that have made the trip to USSEC's bio-energy plant in Natchez, with the company receiving queries and proposal requests for more than 60 Gigawatts (60,000 Megawatts) of power plant services already within their first quarter of trading. "The assignment of exclusive rights to Sustainable Power Corp. (PINKSHEETS: SSTP) to market our biofuel integrated within large scale power plants is coming at a perfect time," commented Rivera. "With our first fuel production facility progressing rapidly and our engineering stages reaching completion, we are ready to start signing official contracts and our pre-construction planning."
