Top Energy Blogger Highlights Promising Potential of Carbon Sciences’ CO2 to Fuel Technology

   
Geoffrey Styles of Energy Outlook Offers Insight to Emerging CO2-to-Fuel Sector in “To Bury CO2 or Recycle It”

Santa Barbara, CA - January 6, 2010 - Carbon Sciences, Inc. (CABN), the developer of a breakthrough technology to recycle carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into gasoline and other portable fuels, today announced that prominent energy blogger, Geoffrey Styles of Energy Outlook, featured Carbon Sciences in a blog post titled, “To Bury CO2 or Recycle It.” Styles is the managing director of GSW Strategy Group, LLC, an energy and environmental strategy consulting firm and has functioned in leadership roles at Texaco Inc.

Hailed one of the “Top 50 Eco Blogs” by The Times of London, Energy Outlook offers useful information and discussion about energy, including oil and gas, peak oil, hydrogen, alternative energy, ethanol and other biofuels, climate change, and geopolitics, from an experienced industry professional.

Styles spoke with Carbon Sciences Chief Executive Officer, Byron Elton and Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Naveed Aslam for this December 22 post that begins by examining the daunting climate and energy challenges the world faces, and the technologies being developed to address them. A seasoned industry professional in the energy sector, Style notes “. . . another strategy now attracting interest involves non-photosynthetic pathways for turning CO2 back into hydrocarbons. If practical, this approach has much to recommend it.”

With a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering serving as his foundation, Styles understands Carbon Sciences’ unique biocatalytic approach of transforming CO2 into fuel. An intriguing aspect to Carbon Sciences’ proprietary process hinges on the type of fuel it produces. Styles writes, “If this can be scaled up to many thousands of barrels per day with a cheap and readily-available source of chemical energy and a suitable supply of CO2, it has the potential to deliver fuels that are 100% compatible with our current infrastructure and vehicle fleets.”

“Mr. Styles understands the promises and challenges of a CO2 to fuel conversion intimately, which made our conversation with him very productive,” said Elton. “Ultimately, we’re thrilled to see his interest in our technology and the many advantages it holds over other alternative fuel solutions such as corn ethanol or biodiesel.”
