MicroCoal Conducting Selection Process for U.S. Utility for first Commercial Implementation of its Technology

VANCOUVER, May 2 /CNW/ - Carbon Friendly Solutions Inc. (CNSX: CFQ)("CFS") is pleased to announce developments in the ongoing negotiations between key players in the U.S. coal energy/utility markets and its subsidiary, MicroCoal Inc. ("MCI"). MicroCoal has demonstrated its commitment to the technology and its rapid development in distinguished markets by engaging in economic feasibility studies with large U.S. utilities. This announcement follows MicroCoal's recent achievement in awarding a patent for the applicable use of its technology in Australia, adding to the long list of territories where MCI has already been awarded patents (including Russia, Eurasia, Indonesia, South Africa and New Zealand). MCI is currently in the process of examining its patents in both the U.S.A. and China.

MicroCoal's executives have dedicated the past 4 years to develop strong relationships with leading energy/utility providers in the U.S.A. A number of small and large American utilities have engaged with MCI in conducting feasibility and deployment studies of MCI's technology process into existing operations. Recent developments include detailed discussions with operating and business departments of significant utilities operating a number of coal-fired plants with sizes ranging between 120MW and 2,400MW. MicroCoal is now working together with these utilities in detailed studies to nominate the most appropriate site for the deployment of its first commercial demonstration plant.

Several small and large plants have encountered operational constraints and deficiencies resulting from rising costs, increased competition and more stringent environmental rules. MicroCoal's technology presents significant environmental benefits by converting low-Btu to high-Btu coal while at the same time reducing sulfur and mercury emissions and increasing plant efficiency through impacting the coal's ash mineralogy. Other benefits of the MicroCoal proprietary process include a significant reduction in fuel costs, and improved combustion.

The largest coal reserves on the planet are located in the U.S.A., Russia, China and India. According to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy (June 2010), the US holds 23,830 million metric tons of coal, of which 12,935 million tons are sub-bituminous and lignite (Low-rank), constituting 54% of recoverable reserves. This equates to 31.2% of the world's proven sub-bituminous and lignite coal reserves in 2009.
