Carbon Sciences' Proprietary CO2-to-Fuel Process Gains Additional Media Attention

   
EnergyBiz Insider and Energy Efficiency Markets Explore Concept of Carbon Capture and Recycling (CCR)

Santa Barbara, CA - December 17, 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 two prominent energy outlets – EnergyBiz Insider and Energy Efficiency Markets – reported on the benefits of Carbon Sciences’ novel process that converts CO2 waste streams from large carbon emitting power plants into fuel.

“As the debate over CO2 emissions escalates globally, reporters like the talented professionals at EnergyBiz Insider and Energy Efficiency Markets are working diligently to report on all the possible solutions to our energy and environment concerns outside what has traditionally been discussed,” said Byron Elton, CEO, Carbon Sciences, Inc.

In Part I of the multi-series podcast titled, “Capturing Carbon Dioxide & Recycling It” (link), Reporter, Lisa Cohn of Energy Efficiency Markets draws contrast between carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology versus Carbon Sciences’ work repurposing and recycling CO2. Elton offers the idea, “Carbon Sciences technology is a little bit of a departure from some of the traditional conversation being had . . . Typically, the conversation tends to revolve around CCS . . . but we, along with a lot of other people, think there are significant hurdles surrounding that technology. Our principle charge at Carbon Sciences is not to debunk the sequestration strategy but rather to introduce another solution, and that is recycling.”

With momentum building around the CO2 recycling sector, EnergyBiz Insider’s Editor-in-Chief, Ken Silverstein, notes in his article, “Reinventing Carbon Dioxide” (link), countries are acknowledging the need for innovative and compelling new technologies. “Lately, carbon recycling has come to fore as multiple global companies have applied for patents . . . the Obama administration has included the recycling of carbon dioxide as part of its clean coal efforts under the previously enacted stimulus plan.”

In August, Carbon Sciences applied for the cited energy grant from the Department of Energy for the “innovative concepts for the beneficial use of CO2.” While the Company has not yet received notice on whether they will be receiving federal funding, they continue to make advancements in the laboratory that increase the energy efficiency of the CO2-to-Fuel process.
