Uptick in Gas Flaring Concerns Add Value to Well Power, Inc. (WPWR) Technology

Ideas get bigger when you share them...

July 28, 2014 (www.investorideas.com newswire) Struggling to keep the pace of the nation’s high production rates for oil and natural gas, several states in the union demonstrate subpar handling of natural gas that often streams in large volumes with the crude. On a broader scale, a growing conglomeration of studies stacks up in agreement with a Stanford study that suggests that "U.S. emissions of methane are considerably higher than official estimates. Leaks from the nation’s natural gas system are an important part of the problem."

Gas flaring is the controlled burning of natural gas that cannot be capture and returned to the system for processing. Approximately 150 billion cubic meters of natural gas are flared annually around the world, representing a tremendous waste of natural resources and churning 400 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent global greenhouse emissions, including methane.

Consequently, environmental degradation is linked to gas flaring, resulting in significant impact on local populations via loss of livelihood and severe health issues. Sadly, money often speaks louder than morals. And for that translation, billions of dollars' worth of gas each year is being wasted through gas flaring.

As part of Obama's Climate Action Plan, the White House and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are working to define a preliminary strategy to curb methane emissions from a variety of industries, including landfills, agriculture and fossil fuel. As part of this plan, if the EPA can identify what kind of regulations will be effective and in compliance with the Clean Air Act, the new rules must be set by the end of 2016.

In North Dakota, where gas flared in the Bakken oil field has nearly tripled in the last three years, new rules aimed at cutting the waste took effect in June and are expected to cut natural gas production flared from 28% in May to 10% in 2020. Furthermore, the North Dakota Industrial Commission will soon require that companies submitting drilling permit applications explain how they will limit flaring - if it's not up to par with commission standards, the state can impose limits on oil production.

As state-level and federal-level government take action, innovative companies in the energy industry are preparing to offer viable solution to meet reduction standards.

Dr. Christian Neagoe, director and CEO of Houston-based Well Power Inc., specializes in the design of industrial processes, including sizing reactors, distillation and extraction columns, heat exchangers and pumps, as well as mass and energy balance and energy optimization.

Under his leadership and in partnership with ME Resource Corp., Well Power is developing proprietary technology designed to process wasted raw natural gas, including shut-in and flared gas, into Engineered FuelsTM and electric power.

These Micro Refinery Units (MRUs) have the potential to address the global concerns and dollar-value waste as a solution to process waste natural gas into "clean power" and engineered fuels, including no-sulphur diesel and diluents.

The plan is to provide the technology to clients in the upstream areas of exploration and production, offering full-service engineering, design, construction, modular fabrication, maintenance and construction management services, as well as consulting services, process assessments, facility appraisals, feasibility studies, technology evaluations, project finance structuring and support, and multi-client subscription services.

Well Power's MRUs provide incredible opportunity to cultivate value from a wasted resource while improving environmental conditions and economic development for local populations. Aligned with the ongoing push for sustainable and environmentally friendly resource development, Well Power is strongly positioned to take a leadership role in addressing a huge gap in energy production and efficiency.

NBT Equities Research Process Delivers Valuable Emerging Growth Sector Data

For the investor more curious about the elusive "next big thing" than the re-tread value stocks scattered beneath their feet, they need to look no further than NBT Equities Research. NBT's (Next Big Thing) efforts are focused on researching the emerging growth sector marketplace and presenting it in delectable info snack form to those who have an appetite for it. The company's website can be found at http://nbtequitiesresearch.com.

NBT is the brainchild of emerging growth investor and financial media personality, Tobin Smith, Fox News Contributor and NY Times bestselling author. Smith is also the Founder of ChangeWave Research (http://changewaveresearch.com) and ChangeWave investing newsletters.

NBT is in the process of expanding to cover over a dozen emerging sectors in Asia, America and else-where. Also included in the NBT family, a division of NBT Equity Group, Inc., is NBT Capital Group, NBT Communications, NBT TV, and NBT Social + Mobile Apps That Work. As part of the company's services, it publishes NBT Week - a weekly newsletter to keep readers up-to-date on the sectors and companies it follows 365 days a year. All newsletter services are included free of charge with an NBT Equities Research membership.

NBT suggests that with just one, 10-20X winner and a moderate collection of under performers, an investor's entire portfolio realizes a 5-10% upside. If the 2010 study by Cerruli Associates is near accurate, with average retirement savings per 50+ household at less than $75,000, nearly every portfolio can benefit from this type of boost.

NBT claims it has proven this concept to hundreds of thousands of investors since 1995 - when founder Tobin Smith started the emerging growth research company ChangeWave Research LLC. NBT's work is centered on researching the emerging growth sector marketplace and incorporating their investment philosophy to it. It is the company's belief that 10-20% of an equity portfolio directly invested in 8-10 leaders of the "secular super sectors" of the world's economy, a portfolio can outperform the overall indexes.

Banjo & Matilda, Inc. (BANJ) Australian Beach Lifestyle Brand of Knits Poised to Score Big Wins in North American Markets

Banjo & Matilda has won over a fast-growing following of consumers who are attracted to the carefree luxury beach lifestyle that is embodied in the company's brand of premium quality knitwear and finer multi-ply cashmere basics. Emblematic of the company's profile are facts like the material for their cashmere being ethically sourced from the incredibly soft undercoat of tiny Mongolian goats that only produce on average as little as 150 grams of this superb material each year. This level of concern for the sourcing and quality of the product resonates profoundly with the intended audience and has set up the brand to perform nicely as they roll out into more and more retail locations globally.

The company's unique and attractive brand of knitwear cut its teeth and grew out of the popular Bondi Beach/Bondi Bay scene in Sydney, NSW, Australia. The name of the town and its surrounding suburb is practically synonymous with a trendy, up-scale (yet relaxed) beach lifestyle and Bondi Beach is widely known amongst Aussies from being featured in TV and film, as well as being home to a number of noteworthy celebrities and personalities. Australia's top international short film festival, Flickerfest (think Cannes on the beach), even takes place at Bondi every year and the locale has become known as a kind of Mecca for surfers, exuding an almost Zen-like aura.

Banjo & Matilda's focus on articles of clothing spun from the very best natural silks and organic cotton, which not only encapsulate the laid back Bondi Beach lifestyle as a brand, but also represent a conscious consumer choice that runs counter to the planned obsolescent world of fast fashion, is a particularly good niche marketing decision. The consumer in the primary target markets wants a lovable piece that can endure the passage of time with grace and which also represents a sustainable approach to textile manufacturing.

Banjo & Matilda has grown quickly from their origins in Australia, but they still maintain their design studios in Sydney, from which the company churns out a stunning array of new collections every season, lovingly designed to capture the imagination of shoppers. Today, BANJ's selection of tops (cardigans, crew/vee necks, hoodies, turtleneck and statement sweaters), bottoms (pants and jumpsuits) and accessories (scarves, sleepwear and travel wear), are available all around the world from New York and Germany, to New Delhi and the Middle East, prominently featured at leading retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Harvey Nichols, Intermix, and David Jones.

The decidedly uncomplicated, yet opulent hand-crafted lifestyle brand clothing from BANJ really managed to make some killer waves during their latest Fall/Winter season, with record sales of $897k (reported July 8) and a 63% jump from the prior year's Fall/Winter season. Thanks in large part to a successful retail distribution expansion from just 18 stores during the same period in the preceding year, to 129 stores as of late June, these latest sales figures are a glowing hallmark of where the brand is headed.

Powerful organic demand for the company's "luxe casual" lifestyle brand offerings has really accelerated retailer traction for BANJ and the company also tapped top U.S. fashion agency, HATCH, to help increase throughput across North American markets even more. Already influential to sale and distribution growth, this move by HATCH and BANJ should lead to even greater brand presence in North America during the remaining 11 months of the campaign and particular emphasis will be paid to optimizing penetration into the Canadian retail space, seen by the duo as a real growth area. HATCH is known for working with some of the hottest, most unique designers in contemporary fashion today and the marriage to BANJ on this campaign feels as natural as the company's clothing.

The Banjo & Matilda label's exposure is set to grow by leaps and bounds in the U.S. over the next year or so and investors will want to keep an eye on the company for further indications of their distribution footprint's expansion, as well as expressions of their ability to successfully connect with and win over a well-defined demographic, represented by continued sales growth.
