enzymes for efficient mitigation of carbon dioxide emissions

Outstanding Shares: 79,187,836

QUEBEC CITY, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – CO(2) Solutions Inc. (TSXV: CST), an innovator in the field of enzyme-enabled
carbon capture technology, announced today that it has been granted
three U.S. Patents as follows:

8,329,458, entitled “Carbonic anhydrase bioreactor and process for CO(2) containing gas effluent treatment” (http://alturl.com/a8qym)

8,329,459, entitled “Carbonic anhydrase system and process for CO(2) containing gas effluent treatment” (http://alturl.com/n8qdj)

8,329,460, entitled “Carbonic anhydrase bioreactor and process” (http://alturl.com/8933u)

The three patents broadly cover the use of the enzyme carbonic anhydrase
(CA) flowing through an absorption reactor either homogeneously or
attached to or in substrates, and optionally removed after absorption,
for the efficient capture of carbon emissions from any gas stream with
any aqueous solvent or solution. Notable industry applications of the
patents for carbon management include power generation, oil refining,
metals production, and cement production, among others.

“The issuance of these three patents further expands our already
dominant intellectual property portfolio for enzymatic carbon capture,”
stated Glenn Kelly, President and Chief Executive Officer of CO(2) Solutions. “These patents will provide significant incremental value in
commercializing our technology in the U.S. market.”
