QUEBEC CITY, Sept. 16, 2016 /CNW/ - CO2 Solutions Inc. (the "Corporation") (TSX-V: CST the leader in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology, announced today the Corporation will present at the Extremophiles 2016 11th International Congress on Extremophiles to be held in Kyoto, Japan from September 12 to 16, 2016. This bi-annual congress will bring together over 300 specialists who discover, develop and work with extremophile organisms and enzymes; i.e. that are active and robust in adverse conditions for most organisms and enzymes.
In recent years, CO2 Solutions has implemented a program for the development of robust industrial carbonic anhydrase for the exploitation of its innovative CO2 capture technology. In the process, the enzyme is subjected to temperature, salinity and alkalinity conditions that are considered extreme and make the enzyme an extremophile or an extremozyme. The 1T1 enzyme, used successfully during the demonstration pilot in Valleyfield in 2015, is the result of this development program.
On Friday, September 16, 2016, Éric Madore, PhD, the Corporation's Lead Scientist, will present the Corporation's progress in the development of robust industrial carbonic anhydrase for CO2 capture during the Extremozymes and Application session of the conference. Further information on the event can be found at: http://www.acplan.jp/extremophiles2016/. Dr. Madore's presentation will be posted on CO2 Solutions' website.
