EPA Classifies Carbon Dioxide as Dangerous Pollutant; Carbon Sciences Says this Pollutant is Key to Providing Unlimited Source of Fuel

CEO Byron Elton declares company’s CO2 to Fuel process as “most powerful, sustainable fuel technology in the world”.

Santa Barbara, CA - December 9, 2009 - Carbon Sciences, Inc. (CABN), the developer of a breakthrough technology to recycle carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into gasoline and other portable fuels, reported today that Domestic Fuel published an interview with the company’s CEO exploring the benefits of carbon dioxide recycling (CCR) technology and its implications on the world’s energy and climate challenges.

As world leaders began talks on climate change at the United Nations Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its long-awaited finding declaring carbon dioxide (CO2) a dangerous pollutant that must be regulated. Carbon Sciences’ CEO, Byron Elton, says, “while excess carbon dioxide presents a harmful climate problem, it also provides the solution to our energy concerns. With the CO2-to-Fuel technology that we are developing, CO2 emissions can be recycled into a virtually unlimited supply of fuel.”

As Elton noted last week on Domestic Fuel Cast (, a popular podcast series that reports on domestic fuel alternatives, “this particular technology is the most powerful and sustainable fuel technology that's being developed in the world today . . . because it's the most direct path from CO2 to fuel."

Elton says the company’s technology will be the solution needed to quell the fears of global carbon emitters facing tightening emissions regulations. “The EPA has already proposed regulating greenhouse gas emissions from new power plants, oil refineries and factories emitting more than 25,000 tons of carbon dioxide a year,” said Elton. “The latest news from the EPA resonates globally and may have a profound impact on the outcome of climate negotiations. More importantly, it increases the focus on the dangers of CO2 as well as the options available to control it, and now, to use it to our advantage so it’s no longer a wasted resource.”

Elton explained to Domestic Fuel reporter John Davis how the minimal level of energy needed to complete this process is what distinguishes Carbon Sciences’ approach from past attempts to convert CO2 into fuel. Another compelling advantage is the type of fuel being produced. “If you think about all the different approaches being used to address these significant challenges, it [CO2-to-fuel] is the only one that has a resulting product that can be used in the existing infrastructure, vehicles and supply chain. The fuel that we're making is the fuel we're using right now,” added Elton.
