Second U.S. Patent Issued for CoronaLux(TM) Technology With More Patents Pending and to Be Filed in 2016
GOLDEN, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/01/16 -- Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources, Inc. (SEER) (OTCQB: SENR), a provider of environmental, renewable fuels and industrial waste stream management services, announced that its subsidiary, Paragon Waste Solutions, has been awarded U.S. Patent Number 9,393,519 from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for technology related to medical waste disposal and extension of the volatile organic compound 'VOC' spectrum. As of today, the total number of patents issued in the Company's portfolio is four, with several more patent applications pending both domestically and internationally.
The Paragon CoronaLux™ system is a patented, low energy, plasma-assisted pyrolytic process that makes it possible to reliably and safely destroy medical waste; on-site and on-demand. The disruptive technology safely and efficiently eliminates virtually all harmful emissions associated with high-temperature thermal processes. Third party independent emission studies concluded the CoronaLux system emits the lowest levels of NOx, Carbon Monoxide and VOC's versus any of today's thermal destruction technologies.
The newly issued patent expands the VOC profile claimed in the original patent, includes the use of catalysts for extreme ranges of VOC's, and expands the intellectual property protection around the Paragon Technology. The Paragon Technology has now been examined by the USPTO, European, Latin American and Asian patent examiners, and granted patent protection in each region.
"The issuance of this second patent is a significant step forward in protecting our valuable asset, both domestically and internationally, as we deploy our disruptive technology into the global market," said Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources Chairman and CEO, John Combs. "Additionally, the new patent award covers an important element in the foundation of our CoronaLux waste destruction system and embodies the uniqueness of our waste destruction intellectual property. We anticipate expanding our patent portfolio to cover a broad set of intellectual property in this area as well as others."
U.S. Patent Number 9,393,519 Abstract
The waste disposal system disclosed herein includes a chamber operated at high ampere and low voltage, the chamber configured to inject smoke on a stream of free radicals. In one implementation, the stream of free radicals is generated from a plasma igniter and the smoke is generated from oxidizing waste products, such as all types of medical waste products.
Cross-Reference to Related Applications to U.S. Patent Number 8,870,735
A method comprising: generating a stream of free radicals using a low energy plasma torch generating cold plasma; injecting at least one of smoke, combustible gas, air, steam, and inert gas into a secondary chamber; and impinging the stream of free radicals on the flow of the at least one of smoke, combustible gas, air, steam, and inert gas, wherein the secondary chamber further comprises a catalyst to accelerate the reaction of the free radicals with the smoke.
About Paragon Waste Solutions
SEER's majority-owned Paragon Waste Solutions is at the technological forefront of the waste management and destruction industry. Paragon's patented CoronaLux™ system uses a low-energy, plasma-enhanced pyrolytic process to safely and reliably destroy hazardous, chemical, biological, pharmaceutical and regulated medical waste. The system also eliminates harmful emissions associated with high-temperature thermal alternative processes such as incineration and conventional hot plasma. The result is tremendous cost savings for waste producers and a much cleaner, safer environment. Initial CoronaLux™ installations have addressed the medical waste market where prevailing destruction methodologies are not available or antiquated, costly and create harmful emissions through incineration or high-energy plasma treatment. Eventually, the Company intends to deploy its CoronaLux™ technology into the oil and gas refinery sector, where the mandated destruction of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, is currently costly and inefficient. The Company's CoronaLux™ technology is the industry's cleanest and most effective solution for most types of solid waste destruction; appropriate for on-site, mobile or centralized collection applications.
