June 28,
2010, Whitefish, MT – Core Biofuel Inc., a Canadian company that is
commercializing a biomass-to-gasoline production process, says it will pursue
an additional production facility possibly to be located in northwest Montana.
Don Sigler, chief financial officer and resident of Whitefish, Montana, says,
“We are pleased with our progress in developing our demonstration production
facility in British Columbia and we are now seeking potential sites for
additional licensee facilities in those areas of the United States where beetle
killed timber is readily available.”

The
company uses both beetle-killed timber and timber harvesting slash as
feedstocks. Current estimates indicate that there are more than 40 million
acres of beetle-killed timber in British Columbia, and the infestation has
affected over 5 million acres in Montana.

Core’s
patent-pending MKS Gasoline Synthesis Process is a thermo-chemical process that
breaks down wood and uses industrially proven catalysts to produce clean
gasoline. The process uses proven equipment in each step to produce a zero
fossil input, 92 octane gasoline. The Houston, British Columbia, demonstration
plant will produce about 18 million gallons of gasoline, 6 million gallons of
distilled water, and will generate its own electric power.
