Canadian and Australian patents further broaden CO(2) Solution’s intellectual property coverage in the growing global market
for carbon capture

QUEBEC CITY, May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – CO(2) Solution Inc. is pleased to announce it has been granted Canadian
patent # 2499264 – A PROCESS AND A PLANT FOR RECYCLING CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS FROM POWER
PL
ANTS INTO USEFUL CARBONATED SPECIES, and Australian patent # 2006217575 – AN IMPROVED CO(2) ABSORPTION SOLUTION.

According to the International Energy Agency’s Greenhouse Gas Program
power plants, aluminum refineries, cement plants and other large
stationary industrial sources worldwide generated aggregate annual
carbon dioxide emissions of more than 14 billion tons, representing
half of all global emissions of carbon pollution from all sources. CO(2) Solution’s patented carbon capture technology provides an effective and
less costly answer for the capture, storage and treatment of these
harmful emissions.

Canadian patent # 2499264, related to corresponding U.S. patent, #
7,596,952 issued to CO(2) Solution in 2009 and other patents pending provides for exclusivity in
the field of using the enzyme carbonic anhydrase for the capture of
carbon dioxide from any fossil power plant. The Company believes that
the patent family has significant value for efficient carbon capture
from power plants and aluminum operations.

Australian patent # 2006217575 related to corresponding U.S. patent,
# 7,740,689 issued to CO(2) Solution in 2010 and other patents pending, provides for exclusivity in
the field of using carbonic anhydrase for the capture of carbon dioxide
with low-energy amine solvents. The Company believes that this patent
family has very substantial value for the power generation, oil & gas
production and other large carbon-intensive industries where the enzyme
catalyst can enable the highly efficient capture of emissions with
commercially available amine solvents such as methyldiethanolamine
(MDEA).

“These additional patents further enhance our leading patent position in
the use of carbonic anhydrase for efficient carbon capture and further
protect our game-changing technology position on a worldwide basis”,
stated Glenn Kelly, President & CEO of CO(2) Solution Inc. “With our portfolio of patents in place, we stand to
uniquely benefit from the significant potential of this growing global
market.”
