Toronto, Ontario - February 16, 2022 - (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Minnova Corp. (TSXV: MCI) (OTC Pink: AGRDF) ("Minnova" or the "Company"), is an evolving resource development company with an exciting green hydrogen and cleantech innovation strategy to compliment our development-stage PL Gold Mine restart plan.
We are pleased to provide an update on ongoing design and testing of a new generation of gasification technology by DUMA Engineering (2018) Inc. ("DUMA") in collaboration with leading European Institutes that is capable of producing higher hydrogen content and tar free syngas than existing technologies. Results from level 8 cold test work carried out earlier this year were positive and confirmed different fluid dynamics configuration options. Design and test work is ongoing and is expected to be finalized in the second quarter of 2022. Upon completion of final tests, global patents will be filed to protect this innovative gasification technology in parallel to ongoing commercialization discussions considering both licensing and build-own-operate options.
In addition to supporting the development and commercialization of a proprietary new gasification technology, Minnova Renewable Energy is expanding our research and development efforts to include analysis of biochar derived from pyrolysis to improve environmentally friendly processing techniques to produce graphite and graphene. Biochar already has demonstrated commercial uses ranging from soil enhancement to filtration systems, but more recently offers potential to be a natural source of graphene. The planned research initiative will inform our strategy to maximize green hydrogen production and produce a high quality biochar with potential to be transformed to a commercial renewable graphene product.
Minnova Renewable Energy is rapidly evolving as a Green Energy Production and Clean Technology Company. To accelerate development, site selection discussions are progressing for initial green hydrogen development projects on 3 continents with emphasis on access to low-cost power and feedstock, existing infrastructure, and access to established European and North American markets, as well as new emerging markets.
Gord Glenn, President & CEO, commented, "We have an ambitious vision to develop Minnova Renewable Energy into a leading green energy production and technology company. Initial community, supplier and off-taker support for our initiative has been very positive. The global commitment to reducing CO2 emissions represents a significant opportunity for Minnova Renewable Energy to take a leading role by advancing our green hydrogen production plans."
