Fort Lauderdale, Florida / ACCESSWIRE / July 8, 2014 / BioPower Operations Corporation (OTCQB:BOPO) ("BioPower" or the "Company") announced today that it has signed a non-binding term sheet to acquire EnviroPower Management, Inc. for CV Preferred Stock subject to certain performance criteria and 7,682,500 shares of common stock of the Company with a two year lock-up provision on such shares. This acquisition positions BioPower as a converter of waste-to-electricity through the environmentally sound and patented advanced thermal output gasification technology. EnviroPower Management has the global exclusive license in perpetuity to the patented gasification process which includes several enhancements that greatly increase the thermal efficiency and reduces emissions compared to pyrolysis, plasma, incineration, biomethanization, and anaerobic composting methods.
Robert Kohn, CEO of BioPower, commented, "This acquisition is a game changer for BioPower, as it fulfills a long road of testing different technologies for the conversion of biomass and wastes to electricity and biofuels. This acquisition immediately provides proven environmentally sound technology with significant capabilities for converting MSW, better known as trash into electricity."
EnviroPower Management’s team has provided engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) or management services in over 250 waste projects.
Dr. Neil Williams, PhD, P.E., stated "Our patented gasification technology is capable of converting a significant amount of different waste streams into electricity including municipal solid waste (trash); tires; construction and demolition debris; medical waste; industrial oils and industrial waste; pharmaceutical waste; biological waste; clinical waste; sewage sludge; APHIS waste and much more. We are developing waste-to-energy projects using gasification globally and in the United States, for conversion to electricity wherever such projects can be financially successful. The U.S. recognizes that getting rid of industrial and medical wastes through landfilling can no longer be a viable long-term solution for a sound environment."
Dr. Williams will be granted a seat on BioPower’s Board of Directors.
Additionally, upon completion of this transaction, the Company's diluted share count will be approximately 38 million.
