U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. Completes Assembly of First Fuel Reactor at New Bioenergy Facility
NATCHEZ, MS--(MARKET WIRE)--Jan 17, 2007 -- U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. announced today the completed assembly of their first official reactor system located at the new USSEC Bioenergy plant and fuel production facility in Natchez, Mississippi. Named FREEUS, the first reactor includes a number of refinements, component upgrades, and process improvements designed by management and consulting engineers since introducing the prototype last year.
The new reactor is capable of producing 6000 gallons of biofuel daily, converting five gallons of quality fuel from every 1 bushel of soybean stock -- a conversion ratio three times more effective than the creation of any traditional biodiesel. The USSEC biofuel also inherits none of the shortcomings of its competitors, features weather resistance up to -90 degrees Fahrenheit, a BTU rating similar to petroleum diesel, and the complete absence of any unwanted residue with no corrosive attributes.
USSEC's "Rivera Process" was featured this weekend on Channel 13, WHO TV, in Iowa, in a special news cast that presented how low cost energy production is being applied to the creation of ethanol. The video piece highlighted the impact and importance of USSEC's technology, along with an overview of how it will be applied to partnering company Diversified Ethanol.
U.S. Sustainable is planning an official commissioning ceremony for later this month to kick off fuel production, to include expected visits from government officials, foreign dignitaries, members of the press, and senior journalists from national trade magazines in the power, petroleum and environmental sectors. Special attendees will also include invited power brokers and prospective clients presenting contract opportunities.
The FREEUS reactor is the first of more than 200 planned reactor tubes scheduled for installation over the next 12 months at the Natchez facility, with further announcements on additional site locations for 2008 expected by March. FREEUS stands for "Free U.S.," a USSEC motto referring to the stranglehold that overseas countries have on the United States through our dependence on foreign oil sources, and a statement of USSEC's commitment to counter that reliance through its proprietary energy advancements.
About U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp.
U.S. Sustainable Energy offers a revolutionary and patent pending 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 fuels.
The USSEC biofuel is furthermore created at a nominal cost as the byproduct of producing organic fertilizer from recycled waste products, a discovery made during research into agricultural biomass now known as the "Rivera Process." The technology offers a solution for foreign oil dependence and the eventual reversal of global greenhouse gas emissions, and can be further utilized to produce ethanol for 30 to 35 percent less than anyone else in the world.
Management and current operations are focused on leveraging the superior performance and low cost of the carbon, fertilizer and biofuel within bundled plant operations, turnkey energy contracts, ethanol production, and other critical applications that rely on energy as a major cost component.
