    About CO2 Solution

    CO2 Solution Inc. has developed a proprietary bio-technological platform
for the efficient capture of carbon dioxide (CO2), the most important
greenhouse gas (GHG), from power plants and other large stationary sources of
emissions. The Company's technology platform exploits the natural power of a
bio-catalyst (enzyme), carbonic anhydrase, which functions within humans and
other mammals to manage CO2 during respiration. CO2 Solution has successfully
adapted the enzyme to function within an industrial environment, and thus has
taken advantage of a biomimetic approach to CO2 capture based on millions of
years of evolution. The Company is commercializing its technology for coal
fired power generation, the oil sands and other CO2-intensive industries where
a low-cost capture solution is key to meeting climate change legislation in a
cost effective manner. News releases and additional information are available
