BlueFire Renewables Adds New Revenue Source to Fulton Facility

 BlueFire Renewables Adds New Revenue Source to Fulton Facility
IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BlueFire Renewables, Inc.
(OTCBB:BFRE), a company focused on changing the world's transportation fuel
paradigm, has integrated a synergistic wood pellet production plant to its
facility in Fulton, Mississippi. The reconfigured design will be a 9 million
gallon per year ethanol plant integrated with a 400,000 ton per year wood
pellet plant. The pellets will be sold under long term contracts into the
European mandated renewable energy market.

"This restructure provides a more robust economic model for the Fulton
facility with a significant increase in projected revenues. It has become
apparent in our attempts to obtain financing for the project that the right
synergies and revenue model would be needed to build this first of a kind
facility," said Arnold Klann President & CEO. "The optimum use of biomass in
the integrated facility strikes a much better balance of revenue with costs
and a better utilization of resources. The more profitable use of capital and
the enhanced security of projected revenue streams more closely match what the
banks have been requiring in the very conservative and restricted credit
markets," stated Klann.

BlueFire has previously announced start of construction and has completed the
preliminary site work for the ethanol facility. The engineering and other
development activities needed are already under way to add the pellet plant.
Synergistic partners will be announced once the definitive agreements are
signed.
