BioSolar in the News as Clean Technology Industries Gain Prominence Within the Economy

Highlights Favorable Economics of BioSolar's Position in the Solar Energy Industry

SANTA CLARITA, CA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2008) - BioSolar™, Inc. (OTCBB: BSRC), developer of a breakthrough technology to produce bio-based materials from renewable plant sources that reduce the cost of photovoltaic solar cells, reports that the company has been featured in the current edition of "Direct2Product" magazine. Calling itself "the fastlane to tomorrow's suppliers," the magazine article reinforces the company's enhanced standing within the photovoltaic industry as it highlights the favorable economics of BioSolar's position within the booming solar energy industry's manufacturing value chain.

Design2Part Magazine, a national publication for the advanced engineering and manufacturing industry, focuses the March 08 issue on "How Clean Technologies are Driving Manufacturing in New Directions." The edition covers the many ways that the CleanTech revolution is changing the way business is done in nearly all sectors of the economy. In an article entitled "Tight Silicon Supply Creates Opportunity for Component Suppliers in Solar Power Industry" the reporter notes that while the solar cell industry is experiencing rapid growth fueled by long term demand, shortages in certain raw materials are putting a squeeze on profits which is forcing the major manufacturers to closely examine how they can cut expenses in all phases of the manufacturing process.

The article notes that the company believes this combination of factors should create a strong sales opportunity for BioSolar's "BioBacksheet," as this product is anticipated to significantly reduce costs for the backsheet component of the solar cell over products currently being used in the industry.

The article can be read in its entirety in the March 2008 Western Edition of Design2Part magazine.
