(“Mantra”, OTCBB: MVTG, FSE: 5MV) is pleased to announce that it will be featured in an upcoming episode of the televisions show ‘Our Planet’ hosted by Greg Gumbel. ‘Our Planet’ is a television show that celebrates successful sustainable solutions, made by individuals, organizations, businesses and municipalities all around the world. Informing viewers on a variety of topics related to preserving precious resources like water, air, fuel and energy, the goal of the show’s producers is to broaden the perspectives of viewers from every walk of life, encouraging them to take steps towards achieving a brighter future, and a healthier and cleaner environment for all of us.

Mantra’s flagship technology, the electro-chemical reduction of carbon dioxide or ‘ERC’ will be the show’s focus. Mantra’s CEO Larry Kristof, as well as Norman Chow, one of the principals of the research and testing facility, Kemetco Research Inc., will be present for the show’s taping at Mantra’s ERC lab.

“We are very pleased that Mantra will be able to display its proprietary ERC technology through an entirely new medium. This will give a chance for everyone who could not make it out to the Sustainability 2008 conference to witness our ERC in action. We certainly look forward to having Mr. Gumbel and the rest of the Our Planet crew visit at our facility and the opportunity to unveil our flagship technology to a very wide audience,” commented Larry Kristof, Mantra’s President and CEO.

About ERC

The ERC process, defined as the Electrochemical Reduction of Carbon dioxide, combines captured carbon dioxide with water to produce high value materials, such as formic acid and formate salts, which are conventionally obtained from the thermochemical processing of fossil fuels. However, ERC has an advantage over the established thermochemical methods for converting carbon dioxide to liquid fuels.

While thermochemical reactions must be driven at relatively high temperatures that are normally obtained by burning fossil fuels, ERC operates at near ambient conditions and is driven by electric energy that can be taken from an electric power grid supplied by hydro, wind, solar or nuclear energy.
