BlueFire Renewables Completes Site Preparation for Fulton Project

IRVINE, Calif. and FULTON, Miss., June 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BlueFire Renewables, Inc. (OTC BB: BFRE.OB), a company focused on changing the world's transportation fuel paradigm through the production of renewable fuels from non-food cellulosic wastes, has completed initial site-preparation on the company's Fulton, MS cellulosic ethanol plant.

Century Construction has completed clearing and grubbing; placed the geo-grid and fabric across the site; brought the site to grade level, and installed drainage structures prior to completion of final rough grading. Grass and mulch were applied to establish the necessary growth for erosion control until plant construction begins.


"With support from the County of Itawamba and the City of Fulton and excellent work done by Century Construction, the Fulton site is ready for facility construction," said Arnold Klann, CEO of BlueFire Renewables, Inc. "We are happy to be working with the County and City to bring renewable fuel production into reality and, in the process, create local jobs. We are currently working on multiple pathways for financing including a pending loan guarantee application with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)."

"Itawamba County is very pleased to join BlueFire Renewables in the effort to alleviate our dependence on foreign fuels, preserve our environment and spur our economy. BlueFire's first phase of construction has already created 52 jobs in Fulton and, as BlueFire moves into its next phase of construction, will create numerous more," said Greg Deakle, Itawamba County Executive Director.

With this phase of construction completed, BlueFire is poised to build its first commercial facility utilizing green and wood wastes available in the region as feedstock for the production of approximately 19 million gallons of ethanol per year to help fulfill the demand under the Federal Renewable Fuel Standard established under the Energy Independence & Security Act.

About BlueFire Renewables, Inc.
BlueFire Renewables, Inc. was established to deploy a commercially ready, patented and proven Concentrated Acid Hydrolysis Technology Process for the profitable conversion of cellulosic waste materials ("Green Waste") to renewable fuel sources, including Cellulosic Ethanol, Biodiesel, BioJet Fuel, and Drop-in Directs. BlueFire is the only cellulose-to-fuel company worldwide with demonstrated production of Biofuels from urban trash (post-sorted MSW), rice and wheat straws, wood waste and other agricultural residues.


BlueFire received an increase to its Grant totaling $88 million under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in December of 2009. BlueFire's biorefineries will be located near markets with high demand for ethanol and will use locally available biomass. This should dramatically reduce delivery costs and increase biofuel supplies, while providing a unique waste processing technology to help America's cities better manage the increasing problem of overflowing landfills.
