Carbon Sciences Positioned as a Pure Play in the Natural Gas Sector

Only a Few Publicly Traded U.S. Companies Have Focused All Their Efforts on the Bright Future of Natural Gas

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 16, 2012) - Carbon Sciences Inc. (OTCBB: CABN), the developer of a breakthrough technology to make transportation fuels and other valuable products from natural gas, today commented that it is one of only a few publicly traded U.S. companies to focus all its efforts on the bright future of natural gas.

Energy experts believe that natural gas will be the most important energy source for the future. The abundance of natural gas, coupled with its environmental advantages and multiple applications across all sectors, means that natural gas will continue to play an increasingly important role in meeting demand for energy in the U.S.

While companies like Exxon Mobil, Schlumberger and Haliburton stand to benefit from this energy transformation, only a few have a dedicated, pure natural gas focus. Chesapeake Energy Corp., the second largest natural gas producer in the U.S. tops that list, along with Houston based Cheniere Energy, a natural gas exporter. Like these companies, Carbon Sciences has focused all its efforts in the natural gas sector, developing its breakthrough technology to make transportation fuels and other valuable products from natural gas.

Byron Elton, the company's CEO, stated, "We believe that we have the best catalyst in the world for transforming natural gas into synthetic gas (syngas), the critical first step in making the same types of products currently made from petroleum. In addition to transportation fuels (gasoline, diesel and jet fuel), natural gas can be transformed into other valuable, large volume products, such as hydrogen, methanol, ammonia, solvents, plastics, and detergent alcohols."

Mr. Elton continued, "We applaud the efforts of those developing alternatives to hydrocarbons. However, until the day arrives when renewables can be delivered at competitive costs and in sufficient quantities to meet our needs, natural gas will be the bridge to the future. Carbon Sciences is committing all of its time, energy and resources to helping build that bridge."
