HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / April 4, 2022 / Viking Energy Group, Inc. (OTCQB:VKIN) ("Viking" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the issuance of a new patent (No. 11,286,832) by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office in connection with the intellectual property and other rights licensed by Viking from ESG Clean Energy, LLC ("ESG"), developers of net zero carbon footprints and clean energy solutions for distributed power generation.
The new patent, issued in March, 2022, concerns a Bottoming Cycle Power System and its related impact to carbon capture technology, is the latest patent acquired for ESG's portfolio of advanced power generation technologies designed to make natural-gas fueled power generation maintain high efficiency without losing energy in the carbon capture process, and for the process of capturing carbon dioxide to be more economically feasible and environmentally friendly.
The new patent covers the invention of an "exhaust-gas-to-exhaust-gas heat exchanger" that efficiently cools - and then reheats - exhaust from a primary power generator so greater energy output can be achieved by a secondary power source with safe ventilation. Another key aspect of the new patent is the development of a carbon dioxide capture system that utilizes the waste heat of the carbon dioxide pump to heat and regenerate the adsorber that enables the CO2 to be safely contained and packaged.
Nick Scuderi, President of ESG, commented, "Acquiring this patent greatly expands our ability to better capture carbon - and use it to make something beneficial - whenever natural gas is used to produce electricity. It's very important progress for a world that's forced to still depend on fossil fuels while trying to meet new emissions standards. Until the renewable power industry can meet the rising global power demands, this technology addresses that challenge tremendously."
Viking's license regarding ESG's patent rights and know-how related to stationary electric power generation, including methods to utilize heat and capture carbon dioxide is exclusive for all of Canada (unlimited number of systems), and non-exclusive for up to twenty-five locations in the United States.
James Doris, President and Chief Executive Officer of Viking, commented, "We are well positioned to assist with the power generation needs of commercial and industrial organizations while at the same time helping them reduce their carbon footprint to satisfy regulatory requirements and follow best ESG-practices. The recent advancement and progress with respect to the ESG's clean energy system is timely as it aligns with the Canadian government's recently announced 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan."
