Carbon Friendly Solutions Inc. Completes Installation of Commercial Reactor

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 12, 2012) - Carbon Friendly Solutions Inc. (CNSX:CFQ) (the "Company" or "Carbon Friendly") is pleased to report that its subsidiary, Microcoal Inc. ("Microcoal" or "MCI"), has successfully concluded the installation and commissioning of its Microcoal Commercial Reactor, at its plant in Golden, CO, USA (the "Plant"). A shipment of 25 tons of low- rank coal is currently being treated and analyzed at the Company's upgraded Plant. These developments are in line with the Company's News Release dated December 14th, 2011, announcing the re-configuration of MCI's pilot plant in Colorado to accommodate upgraded coal requirements of a large-scale facility, and demonstrate a critical milestone in the Company's progress towards the licensing of the Microcoal technology.

In addition, the Plant has recently completed the treatment of two high-rank coals, as per the Company's News Release dated March 26th, 2012. The Hazen Research Inc. lab has been working with the Company to analyze raw and treated coal samples on a number of parameters, with the specific focus of reducing moisture. Results from these analyses indicate a decrease in moisture by 87-93%, resulting in less than 1% residual moisture in each respective coal sample. This serves as further support for the Company's technological process for reducing moisture, and as a result, providing significant value for a number of coal users.

Further, Microcoal Inc. is continuing to optimize its process by developing a broad database of several coal analyses. It has also scheduled additional treatments including: consignment of lignite coal to investigate a financial scenario for lignite coal- consuming plants, and testing of a multiple of Asian and North American coal samples.

Slawek Smulewicz, CEO and Director of the Company, states: "The upgraded Microcoal facility in Boulder, CO, is a significant step for the Company towards the commercial deployment of our Microcoal Technology."
