Company's carbon capture technology performance significantly exceeds 
conventional technology in industrial testing; project ready for field pilot

QUEBEC CITY, April 10, 2014 /CNW/ - CO(2) Solutions Inc. (TSX-V: CST), a 
leading innovator in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology, 
today announced that it has exceeded the second set of technical performance 
milestones for its oil sands project. CO(2) Solutions patented process 
operated at the 0.5 ton/day scale and demonstrated that it can realistically 
lower the cost of CO(2) capture to well below that associated with current 
carbon capture technology on the basis of cost per tonne captured. 
These excellent results position CO(2) Solutions' technology as an important 
platform for carbon emissions reductions as well as for the beneficial reuse 
of CO(2) such as in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in the oil industry. The oil 
sands project will now proceed to the pilot demonstration phase of testing at 
approximately 15 tonne-CO(2)/day scale where process performance will be 
validated in the field towards commercial deployment.  To this end, CO(2) 
Solutions is in advanced discussions with a major Canadian energy company to 
host this pilot installation. 
These milestones are included in the Contribution Agreements for the 
Government of Canada's ecoENERGY Innovation Initiative (ecoEII) and Alberta's 
Climate Change and Emissions Management (CCEMC) Corporation grants funding the 
"This significant milestone further confirms the cost-effectiveness of our 
enzymatic carbon capture technology in the largest-ever scale test of a 
biocatalytic process for carbon capture," said Evan Price, President and CEO 
of CO(2) Solutions. "Our focus is to advance to the pilot stage of the project 
and pursue initial commercial deployment opportunities of the technology 
including those for the beneficial utilization of CO(2)." 
"The Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation is pleased to see the 
innovative carbon capture technology developed by CO(2) Solutions move forward 
to the pilot stage," said CCEMC Chair Eric Newell. "Enzyme-enabled carbon 
capture is a transformative technology that can help Alberta to reduce GHG 
emissions and transition to a lower carbon economy." 
Industry and government are focused on ways to reduce emissions from the oil 
sands, with carbon capture and storage (CCS) being a mitigation option of 
significant interest. However, the cost of conventional CCS technologies is 
prohibitive to broad commercial deployment. Results from the testing are in 
line with the previously announced improvement of a least 33% in energy 
consumption compared to the existing carbon capture technologies for the 
capture of 90 percent of the CO2 emissions from a typical once-through steam 
generator in in-situ oil sands operations. 
One major improvement over conventional processing is that nil-value energy 
from the operation is used as the main heat source thus decreasing further the 
operating costs. Industrially optimized enzyme catalysts employed in the 
testing demonstrated robust performance both in absorption and solvent 
regeneration. The solvent employed is less expensive, extremely stable, and 
environmentally benign compared to conventionally-used solvents.  Moreover, it 
reduces emissions of dangerous by-products to zero.
