DOTHAN, AL, March 10, 2011 (Press Release) -Clean Energy Pathways, Inc. (, an alternative energy and renewable energy solutions company, has been selected by Buckeye Technologies to provide biomass fuel for a 75,000-gallon test burn at the company's cellulose mill in Perry, Florida. The mill provides specialty fibers and non-woven materials to high-end niche markets worldwide.

Buckeye received approval from the state of Florida to conduct the test burn, designed to reduce emissions at the facility and demonstrate the company's commitment to improving the environment. Clean Energy Pathways' biomass fuels have been proven to reduce SO2 emissions and dependence on non-renewable resources and foreign oil.

"The cost-saving and environmental benefits of green fuels are very attractive to many industries," said Michael Parsons, CEO of Clean Energy Pathways. "If the Buckeye test goes well, this will be the first step to get orders for our biomass fuel on an upward track."
