SANTA BARBARA, CA–(Marketwire -09/13/11)- Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN) (OTC.BB: CABN.OB – News), the developer of a breakthrough technology to make gasoline and other fuels from natural gas and carbon dioxide, today announced its solution to the growing problem of greenhouse gases. The company’s proprietary gas-to-liquids (GTL) process consumes two of the most dangerous gases — CO2 and methane — while producing transportation fuels.
Byron Elton, Carbon Sciences CEO, commented, “The world is in need of a technology that can both produce drop-in replacement transportation fuels without using crude oil and that is friendlier to the environment. Because our proprietary process uses both methane from natural gas and CO2 as a feedstock, we address both concerns.”
California regulators recently took a significant step toward proposing the nation’s first-ever greenhouse gas (GHG) regulation covering more than one thousand upstream oil and gas operations with the release last week of data summarizing an extensive GHG emissions survey of these facilities undertaken to help establish a regulatory baseline.
The potential GHG regulation — which would target methane and carbon dioxide (CO2) fugitive and venting emissions — may serve as a model for the federal government as well as other states, and would complement newly proposed EPA rules to control conventional pollutants from drilling operations, sources say.
Environmental experts assert that methane is an even more potent greenhouse gas than CO2, saying that it has a global warming potential over 20 years that is 105 times as strong as CO2, and 33 times as potent over a 100-year time frame.
“There are four main reasons why our technology and catalyst will provide the most complete solution to addressing energy and climate concerns,” Elton added. They are:
- Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (methane and CO2)
- Resulting liquid fuels can be used directly in the existing infrastructure
- Natural gas is domestic, abundant and affordable
- Energy independence from petroleum

About Carbon Sciences Inc.
Carbon Sciences has developed a proprietary technology to make gasoline and other fuels from natural gas. We believe our technology will enable nations of the world to reduce their dependence on petroleum by cost-effectively using natural gas to produce cleaner and greener liquid fuels for immediate use in the existing transportation infrastructure. Although found in abundant supply at affordable prices in the U.S. and throughout the world, natural gas cannot be used directly in cars, trucks, trains and planes without a massive overhaul of the existing transportation infrastructure. Innovating at the forefront of chemical engineering, Carbon Sciences is developing a highly scalable, clean-tech process to transform natural gas into liquid transportation fuels such as gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. The key to this cost-effective process is a proprietary methane dry reforming catalyst that consumes carbon dioxide.
