BioSolar's Dr. Stan Levy Selected to Present Company's Breakthrough BioBacksheet™ Solar Cell Technology at Key Industry Meeting

Chief Technology Officer to Speak at SPIE, the Largest Optical Science and Technology Meeting in North America

SANTA CLARITA, CA--(Marketwire - May 19, 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, announced today that Dr. Stan Levy, the company's Chief Technology Officer, will present at the SPIE Symposium on Solar Applications and Energy conference on Tuesday, August 12, 2008 in San Diego, CA.

Dr. Levy will present findings from the company's technology development program, which led to BioSolar's breakthrough photovoltaic cell component, the BioBacksheet™. He will speak to thousands of engineers and researchers gathered for the SPIE symposium, the largest optical science and technology meeting in North America.

"Dr. Levy has spearheaded our technology development efforts, and in a highly efficient fashion, delivered a uniquely sophisticated product that has stimulated interest on the part of a significant number of major solar cell manufacturers," said Dr. David Lee, CEO of BioSolar. "The submissions panel at the SPIE Symposium on Solar Applications and Energy recognizes the unique nature of our new product and has asked Dr. Levy to deliver an oral presentation, rather than the more common poster presentation. This forum will allow Dr. Levy to discuss in detail the various scientific breakthroughs underlying our BioBacksheet™."

BioSolar recently announced that the company has delivered BioBacksheet™ samples to a select group of solar cell manufacturers in multiple regions of the country. BioSolar also has received numerous requests for analysis samples from high-volume manufacturers, located in the U.S. and abroad.

"The high level of industry interest in our new product and Dr. Levy's invitation to speak at SPIE are tributes to the significance of his contributions to BioSolar and our shareholders," said Dr. Lee.
