AUSTIN, Texas, July 10, 2013

AUSTIN, Texas, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Skyonic Corporation today
announced that it has awarded the $117M construction contract for the Capitol
SkyMine plant in San Antonio, Texas, to Toyo-Thai-USA Corporation (TTUS).
Toyo-Thai Corporation Public Company Limited (TTCL) is providing engineering,
procurement and construction (EPC) services to the project. Toyo-Thai has also
invested $1M in Skyonic to support the project.

"This is our first entry into North America as a full EPC provider and we are
looking forward to the experience," said Hironobu Iriya, President & CEO of
TTCL. "Building Capitol SkyMine® plant, the first commercial scale carbon
capture and utilization plant in the US, will have global implications and our
experience in the energy market makes us an ideal partner for this project."

An internationally acclaimed, globally oriented turnkey EPC contractor,
Toyo-Thai Corporation Public Company Limited provides design & engineering,
equipment & materials procurement, and construction (integrated EPC) services
for turnkey projects, primarilyto the power, petrochemical, chemical, and
petroleum industries.

"When we looked at EPC partners for the nation's first commercial scale carbon
capture and utilization plant, Toyo-Thai's engineering experience really stood
out to us," said Joe Jones, founder and CEO of Skyonic. "The company's
construction and engineer expertise will be critical as we bring SkyMine® to
the commercialization stage with the help of our partners and investors."

Skyonic's electrolytic carbon capture technology, SkyMine®, will selectively
capture CO[2], acid gases and heavy metals from the flue gas of the Capitol
Aggregates Cement Plant, where the Capitol SkyMine facility will be
retrofitted. The captured pollutants will be mineralized into solid products,
including sodium bicarbonate, which are stored, transported and sold as safe,
stable solids. Process byproducts include hydrochloric acid and bleach, which
can also be sold into the market. By producing valuable products using
low-cost chemical inputs and operating at energy-efficient conditions,
SkyMine® captures CO[2] at a substantially lower cost than other carbon
capture technologies, allowing industrial emitters to turn a profit from
reduced emissions.
