CO2 Solutions Announces U.S. Patent Allowance

Company comments on patent portfolio in context of proposed U.S. EPA 
QUEBEC CITY, June 5, 2014 /CNW/ - CO(2 )Solutions Inc. ( the "Corporation") 
(TSX-V:CST), an innovator in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture 
technology, today announced it has received a Notice of Allowance from the 
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its patent application No. 13/264,294 
entitled Process for CO(2) Capture Using Micro-Particles Comprising 
Biocatalysts.  The Corporation also takes this opportunity to provide an 
update on the depth and breadth of its U.S. intellectual property portfolio in 
context of the landmark announcement made this week by the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) on the regulation of carbon emissions from existing 
power plants. 
Upon issuance, the patent will provide CO(2) Solutions with broad coverage for 
the use of biocatalysts, including carbonic anhydrase enzymes, for carbon 
capture in a packed reactor from any gas stream with any solvent where the 
enzymes are attached to the surface of micro-particles or entrapped in porous 
micro-particles. The Corporation believes the allowed patent constitutes a 
valuable process innovation, which will allow for exclusive use of enzymes in 
various industrial applications, with additional flexibility as to process 
"We believe that with the allowance of this patent, combined with our already 
very comprehensive intellectual property portfolio, the Company has covered 
all viable routes to commercialization of carbonic anhydrase enzyme based 
systems for the capture of CO(2)," stated Evan Price, President and Chief 
Executive Officer of CO(2) Solutions. 
Together with this patent allowance, CO(2) Solutions now holds 24 issued and 
allowed U.S. patents, and an additional 6 pending patent applications.  The 
Corporation's patent portfolio provides broad exclusivity for the application 
of any carbonic anhydrase enzyme for the efficient capture of CO(2) from any 
stationary emissions source and production of concentrated CO(2) or 
bicarbonate, which is then available for industrial utilization or storage. 
Included is also specific patent coverage in the application of the technology 
at fossil-fuel-fired power plants, using any solvent in any reactor type, 
packed tower or otherwise, as well as the use of carbonic anhydrase in 
combination with various solvents including carbonates and alkanolamines, 
among others. 
Proposed EPA legislation to drive market for CO(2) capture technologies 
On June 2, 2014, the EPA released its Clean Power Plan, which proposes to 
dramatically cut carbon pollution from power plants, the single largest source 
of carbon pollution in the U.S.  The plan foresees in the application of 
various tools to bring about the desired reduction in CO(2) emissions, 
including the use of remedial technologies such as carbon capture.  The 
Corporation believes its proprietary technology is among the most credible low 
cost alternatives for carbon capture, as well as the economic reuse thereof.  
According to the International Energy Agency GHG Program, as of 2011 there 
were more than 1,000 fossil fuel power plants in the U.S., which generated 
over 2.2 billion tonnes of CO(2) emissions. 
Price continued, "With the EPA's proposed regulations for existing power 
plants, we are witnessing a marked shift in attitude in the United States to 
effectively regulate harmful carbon pollution.  By enforcing concrete emission 
reduction targets, the meeting of which we believe will depend to a large 
extent on the use of remedial technologies, the new regulations have the 
potential to substantially expand the market for carbon capture technologies.  
Our enzymatic technology, backed by an extremely robust patent portfolio, is 
positioned to provide a retrofitable solution for these power plants, where 
their CO(2) emissions can be efficiently captured and sequestered, or 
profitably reused for existing needs such as Enhanced Oil Recovery."
