Greenline Industries to Feature Landspeed Record Biodiesel Motorcycle at National Biodiesel Conference

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenline Industries, a
leader in the design and construction of biodiesel production facilities,
today announced that they will be showcasing the world's first biodiesel
land speed record motorcycle in their booth at the National Biodiesel
Conference in San Antonio, TX.

The custom-built performance motorcycle, named Die Moto, was designed
and fabricated at The Crucible, an innovative industrial arts education
facility in Oakland, California. The motorcycle has already reached speeds
in excess of 130 mph running on pure biodiesel fuels. In September 2007,
The Crucible team plans to shatter the diesel motorcycle land speed world
record, currently 105 mph, at the renowned Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

"We believe in proving the simple point that diesel fuels are
exceptionally efficient in smaller engines, and that biodiesel is the
ultimate form of diesel," said Ted Lavoie, Greenline's CEO. "That is why we have sponsored the Earthrace circumnavigation world record attempt, and that is why we are sponsoring The Crucible's land speed record attempt."

The record attempt will be run later this year at the International
Motorcycle Speed Trials by BUB at Bonneville in September. "We hope to show the world the performance potential of bio-fuels by breaking the existing diesel record and establish records for both biodiesel and SVO at the home of high performance, the Bonneville Salt Flats," said Michael Sturtz, Die Moto's rider and The Crucible's Executive Director. "Our group believes in the development of green power and in demonstrating its potential through concrete actions. That's why we are proud to be working with Greenline Industries and their ecologically friendly factories."

Greenline Industries designs, produces and delivers groundbreaking new
biodiesel production technology, using EPA Award winning waterless, ion
resin exchange processing systems. With over 26 plants under contract, this cost efficient technology is gaining rapid acceptance with major biodiesel producers domestically and internationally. By leveraging strategic partnerships and technical expertise, Greenline provides high quality biodiesel fuel, at a competitive cost-of-entry. .

The Crucible is a non-profit arts education center that fosters a
collaboration of arts, industry and community, teaching and showcasing
fire, metal, glass and light art in the East Bay for eight years. The
Crucible offers more than 400 classes to over 3,000 students annually in
everything from bronze casting to neon, welding to glass working,
blacksmithing to fire dancing. Dedicated to the creative use of fire and
light, The Crucible is known for its innovative and stunning public events
and fundraisers, uniting artists from diverse disciplines.
