BioSolar Receives "Technology of the Day" Award From jumpintotomorrow.com

SANTA CLARITA, CA--(Marketwire - April 21, 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, today reports that the company has been recognized as the "Technology of the Day™" from jumpintotomorrow.com ™. The award is granted to ideas and products that represent innovative ways of addressing many of society's pressing needs.

BioSolar is receiving this recognition for its "BioBacksheet™" product that forms the backsheet component of a photovoltaic solar cell. BioSolar's environmentally responsible "BioBacksheet" is made from renewable plant resources. It is much more cost competitive than the petroleum-based products which are currently being used for the backsheet component of solar cells. The resulting cost savings allows photovoltaic cell manufacturers to reduce the cost of their finished product, thereby reducing the cost per watt of solar electricity.

"We believe we are bringing a product to market that will significantly alter the economics of the photovoltaic power equation by reducing the cost-per-watt of electricity, and allow more of the world's electrical energy needs to be generated by the sun," said Dr. David Lee, BioSolar's chief executive officer. "Industry analysts are beginning to stress that a distinction between solar manufacturers that are truly green and those that are not should become part of every manufacturer's analysis. BioSolar may benefit from this trend as manufacturers try to further position themselves as true green players."

According to jumpintotomorrow.com's President and Founder, Sam Spear, "BioSolar's BioBacksheet is exactly the kind of technology that's going to make a difference. Throughout our site are ideas and innovations we hope inspire others as much as it's inspired us. We congratulate the work of Dr. Lee and his team, and believe this is just the beginning of the kind of favorable attention they deserve."

A wide variety of smart thinking and technologies are offered, from products visitors can buy, to companies in which people can invest, to causes one can join.
