(3 months ago)
QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 12: CO2 Solutions Inc. (or the "Corporation") (TSXV: CST) is pleased to announce that it will be airing its video "Industrial Evolution," during the 2018 Winter Olympic games which will take place from February 9th to the 25th.
The 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea are presented under the theme "Where the Earth Meets the Sky", which promotes world harmony and a gathering place where the three elements of Cheon-ji-in - heaven, earth, and human - are in harmony.
"Ambitious goals have been set for carbon reduction in Canada and the world," stated Evan Price, President and Chief Executive Officer of CO2 Solutions. "We know that CO2 Solutions' technology can contribute significantly towards achieving these reductions and keeping the world's climate in harmony. The Valorisation Carbone Quebec project, through which we are demonstrating commercially viable end-to-end solutions to capture and utilize CO2 in various applications, while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, is an example of our leadership. The airing of this video, which is consistent with the theme of the 2018 Winter Olympics, is an effective method to make this message broadly known across Canada."
The central theme of the video is that CO2 emissions can be curbed through an "industrial evolution" that calls for carbon capture and utilization (CCU). According to the Global Roadmap for CO2 Utilization prepared by McKinsey & Co. for the Global CO2 Initiative in 2016, CCU represents a market opportunity of $1 trillion while mitigating 10% of global CO2 emissions through this approach.
The 30-second commercial spot will first be seen during the opening ceremony and will continue to air until the end of the Olympics on both the CBC News network and on www.cbc.ca, conveying its industrial evolution theme. It will also continue being aired on the CBC news network for an additional two weeks. CO2 Solutions is also considering additional airing of the commercial spot on other Canadian business-related networks and can also be viewed at: https://vimeo.com/178354070 as well as on CO2 Solutions' website www.co2solutions.com and social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.
