Developer of a patented microwave process ("MicroCoal(R)") that
dehydrates (removes water) from coal, biomass, and other energy
feedstocks to increase calorific content of those materials. Main
consumer market is coal-fired power plants. By utilizing the
MicroCoal(R) process, these power plants can switch feedstocks from
expensive, high calorie, polluting coal (called bituminous coal) to
wetter, less polluting feedstocks (sub-bituminous/lignite coal). In
doing, the plants can save money and also improve their environmental
footprint (low-rank coal generally contains much lower levels of
sulphur and other contaminants responsible for generating polluting
emissions during combustion of coal. Another key "green" feature of
the MicroCoal technology is that the water removed from the
coal/biomass is captured and recycled, allowing power plants to
generate hundreds of thousands of tons of water each year that can be
re-used in the power plant for cooling or distributed to local
communities for use in the agricultural sector. Target customers also
include coal mines, timber industry (drying wood), iron industry and
other electricity generating utilities.
The Company is very much "hi-tech" oriented with a heavy emphasis on
R&D to stay ahead of competitors and further optimize the MicroCoal(R)
In short, unlocking the energy potential of less polluting materials
for production of energy (via technology).
Public company listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange.
We are an International company with projects and/or offices in
Canada, USA, Indonesia, and China.
Although our current target material for upgrading is low-rank coal,
we want our new logo to emphasize that our process has diverse
applications for drying/upgrading high moisture content materials
other than coal (such as biomass, clay, mineral ores, etc.).
The colour scheme for the logo does not have to be blue and black like
our MicroCoal(R) logo. However, we will greatly appreciate designs
that show a sensitivity to our current website graphics, process
photos. We do not want to have to build a new website just to
accommodate a new company name and logo.
The logo should have a corporate/industrial/hi-tech/multi-national big
business feel. High resolution, professional, and clean.
The ideal logo will combine a word mark with a picture/symbol mark
(but both the word mark and picture mark should be sufficiently
novel/distinctive to stand alone) - as is the case with our
MicroCoal(R) logo on our website.
