U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. Appoints Dr. Mathew M. Zuckerman CEO

Seasoned Technical Enterprise Manager Appointed as the New CEO and President

NATCHEZ, MS -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 14, 2007 -- U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: USSE) ( announced today the appointment of Mathew M. Zuckerman, Ph.D. as CEO, President and Director, assuming the offices vacated by John Rivera as CEO and President. Dr. Zuckerman has served as the CEO, President and Director of publicly held companies, including Televideo, from 1986 to 1989. He was an Alfred P. Sloan Executive Fellow at Stanford University Graduate School of Business in 1974. Mr. Rivera, who will continue as Chairman and Director and as a valued technical and scientific advisor to the Company, observed, "Like the innovators that historically are successful, I knew when the time was right to turn over operating responsibility. Now is the right time for the hand off and Dr. Zuckerman is the right person to lead our company from here forward."

Commenting on Dr. Zuckerman's appointment, Mr. Rivera pointed out that Dr. Zuckerman had gained experience in engineering, science and business from Envirotech's EIMCO, BSP, Buell and Dohrman divisions, from 1970 to 1974, in the areas of engineering of thermal, materials, handling, liquid and gas process equipment, instrumentation design and construction, and manufacturing. He also pointed out that Dr. Zuckerman also has significant experience in science of process development of the unit operations of hydrolysis, carbon activation and device physics application to liquid and gas measurements, which was grounded by his doctoral research conducted at New York University and that his background also includes business management of companies with manufacturing lines and domestic and international sales of products made from emerging technology.

Dr. Zuckerman commented, "After reviewing the empirical data, seeing the process and conducting my own verification testing of the 'Rivera Process,' I believe that the claims made by some critics that the process 'defies science principles' are wrong and that such claims can only be made by uninformed or uneducated persons who have their own agendas that are benefited by keeping this valuable technology off the market. We will move quickly to advance our initiatives in the enormous markets we serve."

Dr. Zuckerman continued, "There is no question in my mind that the 'Rivera Process' can fill a key role in the U.S. by building a vast and reliable domestic supply of sustainable and renewable energy. The challenge for me in leading USSE is to immediately define and execute the multiple 'product paths' to success in the proper sequence that unlock this valuable technology to positively impact the U.S. energy need and build shareholder value. I am ready to meet this challenge."

About U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp.

U.S. Sustainable Energy offers a revolutionary new energy process that creates three times more fuel per feedstock unit than any other biofuel process. The company has engineered the first bio-renewable fuel able to serve as a replacement to diesel, with none of the negative traits associated with competitive green fuels. The USSEC biofuel is created at a nominal cost as the byproduct of producing organic fertilizer from recycled waste products -- now known as the "Rivera Process," a discovery made during research into agricultural biomass. The technology offers a solution to foreign oil dependence, a significant reduction to the cost of electricity and ethanol production, and the eventual reversal of greenhouse gas emissions.

Management and current operations are focused on leveraging the superior performance and low cost of the fertilizer, biogas and biofuel within bundled plant operations, turnkey energy contracts, ethanol production, and other critical applications that rely on energy as a major cost component.
