SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2008) - Carbon Sciences Inc. (OTCBB: CABN), the developer of a breakthrough technology to transform carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into gasoline and other fuels, announced today that Derek McLeish, the company's CEO, will speak at the ACI Downstream CO2 & Energy Efficiency Forum to be held December 3-5 in Istanbul, Turkey.

The Forum will examine current emissions challenges facing the refining sector, providing a stage for senior executives from the industry to develop efficient CO2 management strategies and evaluate the latest solutions available to meeting emissions and energy efficiency targets.

Commenting on the upcoming presentation of the company's technology, Mr. McLeish said, "This conference is a great opportunity to meet with potential strategic partners and introduce them to our breakthrough CO2 to Fuel technology. The portable fuel industry will continue to be a large emitter of CO2 and our technology uses that waste stream to produce the building blocks required to produce gasoline and other fuels. Our solution fits nicely with their existing production and distribution systems." Mr. McLeish stated further, "We will also use this forum to discuss progress towards our prototype."
