UTICA, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 29, 2003

Life Energy & Technology Holdings, Inc. ("Life Energy") (OTCBB:LETH)(Deutsche Borse DE:LFT) announced today that the Biosphere Process(TM)(a) System has been permitted to operate in The State of Louisiana.

The State of Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has permitted Life Energy's client Green Energy Management, LLC (GEM) to install and operate the Biosphere Process(TM) System in Louisiana. The Biosphere Process is a waste-to-energy operation that will generate electricity using various waste streams.

For the first 90 days the Biosphere Process will use construction, renovation, and demolition waste and/or tires as "feedstock." Five tons per hour will be "gasified" to operate the Biosphere and can generate up to five (5) megawatts per hour of excess electricity.

During the first 90-day period, GEM shall test for PM10, SO2, NOX, and VOC emissions using methods acceptable of the DEQ. After the 90 days a report of the test will be supplied to the Permits Division of the DEQ and other state and federal government environmental agencies.

Announcing the permitting of the Biosphere Process(TM) System to operate in the United States, Dr. Albert Reynolds (former Prime Minister of Ireland 1992-1995) and Chairman of Life Energy & Technology Holdings Inc., said, "This is not just an important milestone for Life Energy and for our Biosphere Process(TM) System, but is indeed a major landmark in the development of Life Energy as a company." Reynolds goes on to say, "LETH looks forward to this permit to be the first of many permits that will be granted in the United Sates and expects to obtain permitting in other locations in the United States in the near future."

Phil H. Nugent, Chairman of Green Energy, said, "Now that GEM/LETH are permitted to operate the Biosphere Process(TM) System by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, we are immediately opening the door to promote this environmental friendly technology throughout the United States. Green Energy estimates that Louisiana will be a significant advantageous showcase for this revolutionary new technology based on present engineering principles, which will benefit generations of Americans by providing for the safe and effective disposal of waste materials while creating clean safe Green Energy in the form of electricity. It is our intention with LETH as our partner to introduce the Biosphere Process(TM) technology throughout North America."

Nugent goes on to say, "This permit will allow Green Energy a platform in which to prove and certify the Biosphere's low emissions using certain feedstocks such as auto and truck tires and construction and demolition debris. Revenue will begin once the Biosphere is in full operation. Revenues from the disposal of tire waste should generate between three and five million dollars annually. The company will generate additional revenue from the sale of excess electricity to the grid."
