Planktos/KlimaFa to Offer Market-Heartening News at Cologne Carbon Expo 2007

    Partner Ecosystem Restoration Companies Achieve New Project Milestones
Enabling Large Volume, Low Cost Carbon Credit Sales

    COLOGNE, GERMANY, April 30 /CNW/ - Leading ecorestoration firms Planktos
Corp. (OTCBB:PLKT) and KlimaFa Ltd. proudly announce the presentation of the
greenest, most economical carbon offsets available at the fourth annual
international Carbon Expo in Cologne, Germany from May 2-5, 2007. Both partner
companies will be publicizing major breakthroughs fulfilling promising
projections made at the previous Expo in 2006.

    In 2006, KlimaFa successfully completed the scientific and business
feasibility studies for its Climate Forest Parks in collaboration with project
partners including Hungary's federal government, Academy of Sciences, and
National Parks Directorate. The firm's project plan has now been approved as a
JI project by the Hungarian government and envisions over 100,000 hectares of
new mixed growth native species forests planted on degraded or retired
farmlands incorporated into and maintained by the national park system. These
strictly protected new climate parks will both enhance local economies and
ecosystems while sequestering scores of millions of tonnes of global warming
CO2. KlimaFa has commenced planting its initial 10,000 hectare Climate Forest
Demonstration Project in Hungary's Bukk National Park, which will help refine
the company's model for developing similar premium carbon offset projects in
other EU states. KlimaFa principals are now in negotiation with several large
institutional buyers for volume sales of both mid-term and long-term credits.

    Planktos, Inc.'s own pioneering ocean ecorestoration/carbon sequestration
program is also on schedule. During its March 7 press briefing at the National
Press Club in Washington, DC, the firm announced the launch of three
commercial-scale pilot projects targeting many million tonnes of verified CO2
sequestration within the current calendar year. Planktos has acquired and is
now refitting the former UNOLS/ National Science Foundation research ship
Weatherbird II to conduct its initial projects off the Galapagos Islands
beginning this June.

    According to Planktos CEO and KlimaFa managing director Russ George, "We
at Planktos/KlimaFa look forward to meeting old friends and developing many
new partnerships at this premier carbon finance event. Indeed we think all
Carbon Expo participants will be both surprised and delighted by the news we
bring, especially the uniquely green and low cost solutions that we will be
presenting for sale this year."

    KlimaFa's co-managing director Dr. David Gazdag concurs, "We believe the
quality, affordability and sustainable volume of the credits we will be
offering are truly unprecedented in the carbon trading world. We welcome all
attendees to our Expo Booth B-015 for some very informative briefings and
rewarding opportunities."
