Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN.OB) Substantially Reduces CO2-to-Fuel Reaction Time

Monday, June 29th, 2009

The process of making liquid fuel is a timely and costly venture, not to mention that it can be extremely detrimental to the environment. It requires many human hours, is extremely dangerous and requires several large tanks, pipes and reactors continuously mixing and intertwining with each other. The magnitude of this process is called scalability. To give you an idea of what this means, 1 cubic meter reactor can create 1 ton of CO2 per day from a medium sized, coal-fired power plant. Under present conditions, several thousands of these operate every day.

Living in a time where immediate changes are necessary to improve our resources for fuels, a major development has surfaced. Carbon Sciences Inc., a company dedicated to converting CO2 emissions into reusable liquid fuels, has taken an unprecedented leap forward in reducing the reaction time between CO2-to-Fuel from hours to minutes. In short, 1 cubic meter can now produce close to 10 tons of CO2 a day at the same plant. So instead of having 3,000 plants operating a day, creating 3,000 tons of CO2, we now can have 300 plants running and creating 3,000 tons of CO2. This huge production increase is found in the process itself.

CEO Byron Elton and CTO Dr. Naveed Aslam both agree that this breakthrough has the potential to completely change how fuel is produced on a global level. The sheer scale of this advancement can effectively generate 30% of the worlds’ liquid fuels. This could not have come at a better time. Carbon Sciences Inc. is now at the forefront of the fuel producing industry and it looks as though they will be for some time.

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Carbon Sciences Inc. (OTCBB: CABN), the developer of breakthrough technology designed to transform carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into gasoline and other fuels, announced this afternoon that the online edition of Newsweek magazine featured an exclusive interview with the Company’s CEO, Derek McLeish and President, Byron Elton.

The two executives were intervied by Newsweek’s Anita Kirpalani in the Newsweek exclusive titled, “Carbon to Burn: Entrepreneurs are trying to recycle carbon from the air by turning it into gasoline.” The article discusses the growing value of carbon as the government and industry begin to invest in technologies to capture carbon from their smokestacks, and entrepreneurs discover ways to recycle it.

“We believe that the world should look at everything it can to reduce the [carbon] footprint, but the world still needs portable fuel and the best way to have that is our [CO2 to fuel] system,” said McLeish.

Mr. Elton stated the biggest advantage of Carbon Sciences’ technology over biofuels is scale. “You can’t grow enough [terrestrial crops] to make a big impact,” he said. “But there is an unbelievable amount of CO2 available. Also, the fuel that we are making [by recycling CO2] goes right back in the existing infrastructure. It is gasoline.”

“The U.S.A. will be a leader in climate change and technology, and the new administration seems to send the right signals about that. The most recent one is that the EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] decided yesterday to make carbon a pollutant. It’s major,” added McLeish.

Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN.OB) Completes Prototype, Demonstrates the Ability to Turn Carbon Dioxide into Fuel

Monday, April 6th, 2009

Searching for a solution to a major global issue is often like searching for a needle in a hay stack. The problems are so large and seemingly insurmountable that they defy perception. If, however, a paradigm shift can occur, vast profit awaits. One of today’s largest and more pressing problems is carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. As difficult as it may appear, a paradigm shift may have just occurred with the ability to transform carbon dioxide into the very thing that caused it in the first place, fuel.

Carbon Sciences Inc., a development stage environmental sciences company, is working to develop a “bio-catalytic” process in which carbon dioxide (CO2) is transformed into methanol. Once the CO2 is transformed into a low-level fuel, such as methanol, it is then “built” into a higher-level fuel such as gasoline, jet fuel or another fuel form. A working prototype has recently been tested to demonstrate the viability of the technology.

Although the overall market for this type of technology is very large and wide ranging, its primary target market is that of coal fired power plants. The general concept is turning a waste by-product into a product itself. In a general sense, one is turning a pollution credit into a solid product all its own. The process is just getting underway with a prototype recently demonstrating that the process can work. If the company’s projections work as did the prototype, potentially 30% of the world’s liquid fuel needs could be met with the process.

Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN.OB) Gains Key Ingredient for Co2-to-Fuels Process

Monday, October 20th, 2008

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most significant byproduct of fossil fuel usage and a major greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. We hear about the dangerous levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere on major news broadcasts across the globe. Carbon Sciences is tackling this issue, developing a breakthrough technology to transform carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into the basic fuel building blocks required to produce gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel and other fuels.

The key to Carbon Science’s CO2-to-Fuel approach lies in a proprietary multi-step biocatalytic process. The company’s approach is based on a low energy biocatalytic hydrolysis process where water molecules (H2O) are split into hydrogen atoms (H) and hydroxide ions (OH) using a biocatalyst. The hydrogen atoms (H) are immediately used in the production of hydrocarbons and the free electrons in OH are used to power the various biocatalytic processes. Instead of using expensive inorganic catalysts, such as zinc, gold or zeolite, with traditional high energy catalytic chemical processes, their process uses inexpensive, renewable biomolecules to catalyze certain chemical reactions required to transform CO2 into basic hydrocarbon building blocks.

Derek McLeish, CEO of Carbon Sciences stated, “Because many aspects of our technology are trade secrets, we are not free to discuss all the details. However, based on our research to date, we believe that we will be able to demonstrate our technology within the next several months with a prototype that can convert a stream of CO2 into an immediately flammable liquid fuel.”

We will be on the lookout for that prototype in the next months to come and update when new information becomes available.

Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN.OB) Announces 1st Commercial Application of Its Technology

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN.OB) is developing an innovative technology for transforming harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) from sources such as coal-fired power plants into earth-friendly carbon products. By eliminating harmful CO2 emissions, the company’s technology will provide a partial solution to the problem of global warming.

Carbon Science has filed for a patent on their technology which they call Green Carbon Technology. This unique technology uses a process which combines the harmful CO2 with a mineral feedstock to turn it into a highly stable and useful mineral carbonate product which the company calls Green Carbonate. This Green Carbonate has many possible applications in a wide range of industries such as: agriculture, construction, paper, chemicals, and the environment.

On May 12, 2008 Carbon Sciences announced its first application for this technology, which is targeting a near-term, multi-billion dollar global market. This is a process that will transform CO2 into a high-value chemical compound called precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC), which is currently used in the manufacture of paper, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. Unlike existing methods of producing this chemical, Carbon Sciences’ clean-tech process will be carbon neutral, use less energy, and generate lower production costs.

There seems to be a ready market for the PCC that Carbon Sciences will be producing. The demand for PCC is projected to grow to 10 million tons annually by 2010, due to increased global paper consumption and construction in the booming Asian countries. Approximately 70% of this is expected to be used by the paper industry as brightness coating and filler. The company’s management believes that energy and CO2-intensive industries such as paper production will welcome their innovative clean technology because it offers very important benefits, namely lower cost and carbon neutrality.

OTCPicks.com Highlights Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN.OB)

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN.OB) is a California-based company in the process of developing an innovative technology for transforming harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) into earth-friendly carbon products such as building materials, plastics, and fertilizers. The technology is based on a patent filed by the company.

By eliminating harmful CO2 emissions, the company’s technology will provide a partial solution to the problem of global warming. Carbon Sciences is initially targeting emissions from coal-fired electric plants and fuel production plants, since about one third of CO2 released into the atmosphere is from the combustion of coal. Current methods for reducing CO2 from power plants involve capturing the CO2 and storing it underground. This method is just not economically viable at a cost of approximately $150 per ton.

The company’s Green Carbon Technology shows promise. This technology can be installed in new coal-fired plants or retrofitted for existing plants. The company’s GreenCarbon ‘reactor’ takes the CO2 and – in a process using water and mineral rock particles – transforms the CO2 and mineral feedstocks into green carbonate, a highly stable and useful mineral carbonate product with numerous applications, including agricultural fertilizer, extender in paints and coatings, concrete fillers used in construction, plastics, paper-making uses to help increase paper’s whiteness and gloss, etc. By selling this very useful carbonate product, companies would be able to reduce the cost of CO2 transformation.

Carbon Science’s technology should find a ready market. Both the Bush administration and the Kyoto Protocol have mandates which require greatly reducing carbon emissions by 2012. The Kyoto treaty calls for a $40 per ton penalty on CO2 emissions which eventually rises to $100 per ton, so the company’s product should have strong demand from around the world. At the Bali Global Warming Conference in December 2007, many of the participants showed great interest in Carbon Science’s Green Carbon Technology.
