Carbon Sciences to Transform CO2 into Fuel

   
Company unveils breakthrough technology that uses a highly scalable process to transform CO2 into fuel to meet the needs of the world

Santa Barbara, CA, USA and Cambridge, UK - September 24, 2008 - Carbon Sciences, Inc. (CABN), the developer of a breakthrough technology to transform harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) into high value, earth-friendly products, announced today that the company is developing a breakthrough technology to transform CO2 into the basic fuel building blocks required to produce gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel and other portable fuels.

"We are very excited about this breakthrough," stated Derek McLeish, the company's CEO. "By innovating at the intersection of chemical engineering and bio-engineering disciplines, we are developing a highly scalable biocatalytic process to meet the fuel needs of the world. With over 28 billion tons of CO2 emitted each year, there is an abundant supply of raw material available to produce renewable and sustainable fuels for global consumption."

Speaking in Cambridge at the First International Summit on Policy, Technology and Investment, hosted by Cambridge University, Mr. McLeish commented further, "Carbon Sciences has been working for some time on using CO2 as the feedstock for production of high value products. Since the world is highly dependent on the existing transportation and fuel delivery infrastructure, we view fuel to be the ultimate high value product. Automobiles, trucks, trains and planes powered by portable fuels are crucial to our way of life. Other alternative fuel technologies, such as fuel cells and hydrogen, require substantial infrastructure changes in order to meet the energy and climate challenge."

Mr. McLeish provided further explanation, "Our solution is to enable a sustainable world of fuel consumption and climate stability by transforming CO2 into fuel. For example, Carbon Sciences' breakthrough technology can be used to transform CO2 emitted from fossil fuel power plants into gasoline to power our cars."
