Jul 11, 2014 (ACCESSWIRE via COMTEX) — POMPANO BEACH, FL / ACCESSWIRE / July 11, 2014 / Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: CYPW), developer of the all-fuel clean-tech Cyclone Engine, announced that the European Patent Office has issued a notice to grant the Company a patent on its Waste Heat Engine (the WHE).
The WHE converts heat from exhaust streams into mechanical power which can be used to run electric generators for distributed generation. The compact size and simple but robust design of these engines are well suited to enable small-scale waste-to-power equipment to operate at the site where waste is created and power is required. This has the ability to overcome costly logistics and management issues while generating electricity close to grid parity.
Harry Schoell, Cyclone’s Chairman and CTO, stated: “Receiving this new patent is an important development for our company and shareholders. It increases the value of our portfolio of intellectual property, and provides protection for our subsidiary, WHE Generation, to focus on expanding its marketing and business throughout the European territory. Success in these efforts will provide capital and revenue to Cyclone for years to come.”
The EPO is the gateway for patent protection in 39 European nations, which collectively comprise the largest economy in the world by nominal GDP. Many of these nations have well developed renewable energy programs and commercial markets for biomass and waste energy recovery. This EEU patent marks the fifth patent for the WHE, inclusive of the United States, China, South Africa and Australia.
