Nation's Top Newspaper Hails California Company's Revolutionary BioCatalytic Method as "Furthest Along in the CO2-to-Fuels Quest"
Santa Barbara, CA - February 25, 2008 - Carbon Sciences, Inc. (CABN), the developer of a breakthrough technology to transform carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into gasoline and other fuels, was featured in USAToday's (http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/energy/environment/2009-02-24-carbon-dioxide-gasoline_N.htm) Money section (Page 3B), which reports, "Carbon Sciences is furthest along in the CO2-to-fuels quest."
The piece "Greenhouse gas villain rehabbed; Companies develop methods to repurpose carbon dioxide," features industry pioneers who are making strides to recycle CO2, "public enemy No. 1," and "reduce dependence on carbon-spewing, petroleum-based products, as well as renewable fuels such as corn ethanol that compete with food supplies."
The article details the company's revolutionary biocatalytic process, invented by Dr. Naveed Aslam, the company's chief technology advisor, who has found a way "to break down CO2 at low temperature and pressure."
Derek McLeish, Carbon Sciences' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, says his company's process is the "most direct path," and, noted USA Today reporter Paul Davidson, "ultimately, quicker and cheaper."
Carbon Sciences' President and Chief Operating Office, Byron Elton added, "USA Today's article is a validation of our proprietary and unique technology that uses CO2, the very source of the problem to provide a solution."
