Thermal Energy Files New Patent for THERMALONOx

Thermal Energy International Inc announced today at its annual meeting of shareholders, that it has filed for a provisional patent on new technology at the core of its THERMALONOx solution.

THERMALONOx is proposed as a cost effective alternative to existing solutions to effectively reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions at coal-fired power plants and other industrial boiler/burner applications.

Over the past year, Thermal Energy's chief scientist Dr. Raymond Belanger has developed a new system to generate ozone, which is fundamental to the chemical reaction required to remove NOx from the flue gas streams and one of several components required for a complete emission reduction solution.

"We have conducted extensive bench tests which show Dr. Belanger's new process generates significant quantities of ozone exceeding even his original projections," said Thermal Energy President and CEO Tim Angus. "It is our intention to move forward with this new technology at the heart of THERMALONOx."

Dr. Belanger developed the process after conducting the first bench tests on the originally proposed method for ozone generation. Those tests determined that the original process would produce insufficient quantities of ozone to make THERMALONOx work.

"We are confident that this new process will allow us to move forward and bring THERMALONOx to market as a cost-effective solution to reducing NOx emissions than exists today," said Mr. Angus.

The Company has embarked on additional research and development work to integrate the new technology into the complete THERMALONOx solution. This will include additional bench tests and the establishment of an R&D test site, with the eventual goal of establishing an industrial-scale demonstration site.
