Mar. 10, 2010, Vancouver – Carbon Friendly Solutions Inc.’s recently formed Pacific
Briquetters Inc. is planning to own, finance, develop, and operate a briquette
and biomass energy manufacturing and distribution facility. The proposed
location is in Mission, British Columbia, at an affiliate of The Clarke Group
(TCG), a group of cedar shake and building product companies with operations in
British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.

PBI plans to develop and sell biomass energy fuel products to industrial buyers in
the initial years. The starting product line will focus on the production of
biomass energy briquettes from residual fibre obtained from TCG's existing
operations, local suppliers, and wood waste materials obtained from its current
wood waste and recycling permit application. The briquettes’ expected use is by
industrial users in coal-fired plants, biomass boilers, and combined heat and
power systems.

Production is expected to commence in 2010 at approximately 20,000 tonnes/year of
briquettes, with an emphasis on expanding operations over time. The initial
focus is to sell to the highest priced sustainable market. PBI is currently in
negotiations with several potential buyers in Europe, the United Kingdom, the
United States, and Asia for its proposed briquette product.
