Wall Street News Alert: Investment Watch: CLTH! April 16, 2008

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Wall Street Capital Funding.

WESTON, FL--(Marketwire - April 16, 2008) - Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: CleanTech Biofuels, Inc. (OTCBB: CLTH), VeraSun Energy Corporation (NYSE: VSE), Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) and GE (NYSE: GE).

CleanTech Biofuels, Inc. (OTCBB: CLTH) has just issued positive news, and the company should have investors monitoring the stock closely. Yesterday after the markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that it has entered into an exclusive worldwide sublicense agreement with HFTA of Livermore, California to license technology developed by scientists at the University of California, Berkeley.

Great news for the company! The patented technology utilizes nitric acid rather than sulfuric or hydrochloric acid to hydrolyze cellulosic material for the production of ethanol and other fuels from biomass. Sulfuric or hydrochloric acids are typically used for most thermo-chemical hydrolysis processes. CleanTech believes that the HFTA/University of California Berkeley nitric acid process represents state-of-the-art technology in the cellulosic ethanol industry.

In addition to the company's exclusive rights to utilize municipal solid waste as feedstock for the HFTA technology, CleanTech has also obtained a nonexclusive worldwide license for all other cellulosic biomass feedstocks for the production of ethanol. The licensed technology is described in U.S. Patents No. 5221357, 5366558, 5536325, 5628830, and 6019900. The sublicense agreement is with HFTA, a California corporation formed by the developers of the technology while at the University of California at Berkeley.

Investors are urged to continue to monitor the progress of the company!

Before the news was released, the stock closed Tuesday at Eighty cents a share.
