W2 Energy Files US Patent for Algae System
Thursday, March 18, 2010
Toronto -- W2 Energy, Inc., a clean energy company (www.w2energy.com) (PINKSHEETS: WTWO), is pleased to announce that it has filed a U.S. provisional patent on its algae harvesting and cleaning system.
W2's system addresses many of the common problems of tubular photo bioreactors by harvesting the product, agitating the algae during growth, and removing harmful gasses from the tubes.
W2's SunFilter (algae reactor) is low cost, scalable, has high productivity, uses less water, has less harmful contamination, and maximizes sequestering of CO2 and other feed gasses. The Sunfilter has optimum light distribution because of the diameter of the tubes and its novel construction. The modular system can be built from one unit (cell) to multiple units occupying many acres.
W2's recent step in filing for the patent allows the company to begin to market the product. The company feels that the filing of this patent assists in developing W2 Energy's position as a leader related to the cultivation of algae for conversion to alternative fuels like bio-diesel. W2 intends to market the product through its website which is presently being modified to integrate an e-commerce store as well as its ecommerce sites on eBay and alibaba.com. The company is also considering distributorship through qualified entities.
The company will also market its algae bioreactor, algae, and algae oil and other products as they become available through these sites.
W2 Energy is a net user of CO2. It generates carbon free power. Garbage is a renewable resource.
W2Energy trades in the United States on the OTC market under the symbol "WTWO".
