Diamant Art Corporation Highlights Contrasting Distinction Between Popular Biodegradable Technologies and Diamant's Superior Solutions

TORONTO--(Marketwire - October 25, 2007) - Diamant Art Corporation (OTCBB: DIAAF) announced today that in a press release (http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5ienYPUcY7ZAw006R-wo5hhyVHg_AD8SDP3L83) distributed by the Associated Press, "Bioplastics" were the feature of a news story that reveals the shortcomings of various common Biodegradable products.

Attention was drawn to the fact that plastics made from corn and other plants are creating a niche in the marketplace for conventional petroleum-based plastics, and being promoted as a green alternative for everything from bulk food containers to lipstick tubes and clothing fiber, as well as gift cards.

While bioplastics provide the environment with a solution to reduce the need for oil, and are mainly biodegradable to varying degrees, environmentalists have revealed reservations due to the downside of such solutions. Mention is made regarding the fact that manufacturing bioplastics produces carbon dioxide, which contributes to global warming. It is also noted that these materials are made from crops, which require water to grow, among other concerns.

This technology is also reported to cost three times more than conventional plastics which will likely serve as a hindrance for the marketability of these technologies. Additional to the financial disadvantages, health concerns are also a factor.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger this month to sign legislation banning chemicals called phthalates from toys and baby products led in part by the fact that Bioplastics lack toxins like polyvinyl chloride and have recently raised health concerns.

Tamara Nameroff, acting director of the American Chemical Society's Green Chemistry Institute, said being as good as the product it replaces is not good enough for any green product, "even if you've proved you can make it environmentally friendly."

In Contrast, Diamant's Bio-Products contain Totally Degradable Plastic Additive. Unlike other plastic, once biodegrading is complete, all that remains is carbon dioxide, water and biomass, all of which are part of the normal bio-cycle. As a result, Diamant™ Film has recently received the ECO logo certified by the Environmental Choice™ Program.
