FRANKFURT, GERMANY--(Marketwired - April 9, 2014) - Mantra Venture Group (OTCQB:MVTG) has announced the extension of its ongoing European road show. Mantra's CEO Larry Kristof has spent the last three weeks visiting individuals, institutions, government, and its partners in France, Spain, Switzerland, and Germany. Due to the continued interest from other parties and collaborators, Mr. Kristof will extend the trip to London, Dubai, and Hong Kong.

About Mantra Venture Group
Mantra Venture Group Ltd. (OTCQB:MVTG) is a clean technology incubator that takes innovative emerging technologies and moves them towards commercialization. The Company, through its subsidiary Mantra Energy Alternatives, is currently developing two groundbreaking electrochemical technologies designed to make reducing greenhouse gas emissions profitable, ERC (Electro-Reduction of Carbon Dioxide) and MRFC (Mixed-Reactant Fuel Cell).
ERC is a form of "carbon capture and utilization" (CCU) that converts the polluting greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into useful, valuable products including formic acid and formate salts. By utilizing clean electricity, the process offers the potential for an industrial plant to reduce emissions while generating a salable product and a profit.
The MRFC is an unconventional fuel cell that uses a mixture of fuel and oxidant, thereby greatly reducing the complexity and cost of the fuel cell system. Ideal for portable applications, the MRFC is cheaper, lighter, and more compact than conventional fuel cell technologies.
