CO2 Solutions And Neumann Systems Group Achieve Breakthrough Carbon Capture Results; Pilot Project Now To Take Place This Year

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO and QUEBEC CITY, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - CO 2 Solutions Inc. (" CO 2 Solutions") (TSX-V: CST), the leading innovator in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology, and Neumann Systems Group, Inc. ("NSG"), an established emissions control solutions provider, today provide an update on the technical progress towards establishing a commercial ultra-low cost carbon dioxide (CO 2) capture and reuse solution.

As announced on June 14, 2014, the companies signed a collaboration agreement to demonstrate a combination of their two proprietary technologies at pilot scale for the capture of CO 2 from industrial effluent gases.  Initial testing has demonstrated the compatibility and synergy resulting from the use of CO 2 Solutions' enzyme-based technology with NSG`s NeuStream® compact and highly efficient absorber and stripper systems.

In more recent tests, the enzyme-based solvent operating in the NeuStream® system achieved CO 2 capture efficiency comparable to some of the better amines.  This kinetic performance when combined with the energy-efficient properties of the enzyme-based process, is expected to deliver substantially lower operating costs relative to the best amine-based CO 2 capture systems.  The enzyme-based solvent is also more environmentally sustainable compared to conventional amines by eliminating carcinogenic aerosols and other amine related pollutants.  Additionally, through significantly reduced equipment sizing, the NeuStream® system provides low capital costs and a much smaller system footprint.

Because of these excellent results, CO 2 Solutions and NSG have decided to accelerate preparations for the previously announced operation of a pilot facility in Colorado Springs to capture approximately 10 tonnes of CO 2 per day. The pilot, originally expected to take place in April 2015 will now commence in October 2014.

Dave Neumann, President & CEO of NSG, stated, ""These results demonstrate how our two technologies complement each other and can deliver a truly low cost solution for CO 2 capture and regeneration systems.  Because of this, we have decided to accelerate our previously announced pilot project.""

Evan Price, President & CEO of CO 2 Solutions, added, "We see a number of very significant business opportunities for CO 2 capture and regeneration, such as Enhanced Oil Recovery, that we intend to pursue jointly with NSG once the pilot demonstration of the combined solution has been successfully concluded.  Advancing the pilot start date by six months brings us even closer to providing our technology to these promising markets."
