US BioTec Announces Formation of Exploratory Subsidiary

GLEASON, TN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 10, 2006 -- US BioTec, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: USBO), an emerging player in the rapidly growing bio-chemical sector of the annual multi-billion dollar industries related to agriculture, lawn and garden, and golf course products, today announced the Board Of Directors has approved the incorporation of a subsidiary for use in potential new business ventures. This new subsidiary will immediately begin exploring opportunities presented to USBO for entry into various aspects of the bio-fuels market.

"Promoting the use of renewable resource fuels from grain could end up being very important to the marketing potential of USBO's grain products. After seeing a couple of opportunities pass us by within our field of contacts related to alternative fuels and since being approached by another group to supply alternative fuels, the Board decided USBO should have a corporate vehicle to handle any potential alternative fuel deals that we might enter into," says Jimmy Joyner, CEO of US BioTec.

Ethanol made from grain- (corn) based alcohol and soy-diesel, a soybean-based fuel, both carry a government subsidy that makes these fuels attractive to use and manufacture. Corn is the largest grain market in the U.S. and soybean is number two. Any increase in the use of these related alternative fuels automatically increases demand for corn and soybeans. USBO's potential to market biotechnology products in these huge grain markets is enhanced as demand increases these crop prices. USBO sees multiple opportunities for it to enter into the fast growing bio-fuels market in areas ranging from the supply of bio-chemicals to growers to the actual manufacturing of ethanol.

All of US BioTec's products are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and biodegradable alternatives to the toxic and sometimes carcinogenic agrichemicals that have been widely used by farmers for decades. The agrichemical market, which is measured in the tens of billions of dollars annually, is controlled primarily by a handful of large multi-national corporations such as DuPont, Syngenta, Bayer, BASF, Dow Chemical and Monsanto.
