Active Energy awarded three new patents for CoalSwitch® technology
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued two patents - No. 10,647,935 and No. 10,858,607. The Canadian Patent Office has issued patent No. 2,999,447, for treating and preparing biomass to be used as fuel.
The company said that the award of these new Patents builds upon its successful receipt of the Malaysian patent for CoalSwitch® in July 2022, as well as patents awarded in the United States in 2020 for the manufacturing and production of CoalSwitch® and in Canada in 2021 for beneficiating and cleaning biomass.
CoalSwitch® has been shown to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 99% compared to coal and up to 97% compared to natural gas said the firm, citing an independent report from Life Cycle Associates.
AEG’s partner, Player Design Inc, is currently in the final states of constructing a fully commercial scale CoalSwitch® production facility in Ashland, Maine where commissioning is expected in late spring.
Active Energy added it continues to file further patent applications across the globe as it targets significant markets, such as Europe and Asia.
Michael Rowan, CEO of Active Energy, commented: "We are delighted to have received three further patents for our CoalSwitch® technology, the leading next generation biomass pellet. The Patents add further protection to our pellet, which we believe is a revolutionary product in the biomass market.”
