SANTA CLARITA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BioSolar, Inc. (BSRC) continues to garner interest from solar cell manufacturers and members of the media, including California Energy Circuit and PV Tech, following the company’s recent announcement that it is preparing for preproduction of its anticipated BioBacksheet™, a protective covering for photovoltaic solar cells made from renewable plant sources, rather than the expensive petroleum-based film currently in use.

Dr. David Lee, CEO of BioSolar, will appear on Grok’s Science Radio Show on Wednesday, November 26, 2008 to discuss his company’s breakthrough technology and the potential cost savings it could yield for the solar industry. The show is heard on radio stations across the country; please visit the show’s website to view a complete list of stations and air times. A podcast will also be posted on the website in the days following the interview.

“BioSolar has significantly expanded its activity recently, and we are excited that our new developments and continued progress have not only generated interest from partners, manufacturers and analysts, but have brought our BioBacksheet™ to the forefront of the media’s attention as well,” said Dr. Lee.

In a recent article from RenewableEnergyWorld.com, Beacon Equity Research analyst Victor Sula noted that BioSolar’s material has “durability characteristics similar to conventional petroleum-based plastics” and noted that previous attempts to make a backsheet with bio-plastics were unsuccessful due to the material’s “low melting temperature and fragile molecular structure.”

The latest wave of media coverage follows the company’s official announcement of the technology behind the BioBacksheet at the SPIE Symposium on Solar Applications and Energy conference on August 12, 2008 which was reported on: GreenTech Media, CNET, Scientific American and United Press International, among others.
