Oslo, Norway 03 November 2022


CO2 Capsol AS has entered into a loan agreement with the Norwegian bank DNB for
financing of CapsolGoTM unit 1 and unit 2. This is a "green loan" facility of
23,000,000 NOK.

"With this facility the company has strengthened its financial position and
improved its growth capacity," says Ingar Berg, Chief Financial Officer at CO2
Capsol.

In October, CO2 Capsol announced start of operations on its CapsolGoTM unit 1 at
Östersundskraft's Energy-from-Waste plant in Helsingborg, Sweden. Due to strong
demand from the European market, the company has invested in a second unit which
is expected to be ready for deployment by end of 2022.

"The fact that CO2 Capsol qualified under the DNB Sustainable Product Framework,
which is verified by DNV as an independent third party, is a testament to our
commitment to drive sustainability. We are very pleased with the support from
DNB in this process," adds Mr. Berg.

"DNB will be a driving force for sustainable transition, and we will use our
expertise and provide banking services to help our customers move in a
sustainable direction. We are excited to play our part in bringing much needed
technologies like CO2 Capsol's carbon capture technology to the market,"  says
Gry Berit Lundal, SVP Energy & Industry.

About DNB's "green loan"

A green loan is a financing product where the loan proceeds are used for
projects and investments with specific environmental credentials. In partnership
with ESG rating company Sustainalytics, DNB has developed a framework for
qualifying "green loans". DNV makes an external assessment and issues green
certificates for loans that qualify. A green loan offers better terms than an
equivalent loan that does not meet the criteria for "green loans".
