AMNE Completes License Deal for "Infinite R"

NEW HAVEN, CT--(Marketwire - June 4, 2009) - American Green Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMNE) ( announces it has a signed a licensing deal with the patent holder of "Infinite R," a revolutionary insulation that could change building around the world.

AMNE has initially licensed the State of FL with Miami-Dade County having the most stringent building codes in the Country, once Infinite R is recognized as a standard in the building industry in FL other States will accept Infinite R as a new building material.

AMNE has been in discussions with a company in FL to help them introduce Infinite R to the building community and lobby the State of FL to make Infinite R the standard in the building industry.

About Infinite R

Infinite R controls the temperature differential across the R-value. If the temperature difference can be kept low then the heat flow across any R-value is also kept low. If the temperature difference, sometimes referred to as Delta T, equals zero then zero heat flow occurs. Using this new patented technology, zero heat flow conditions have been witnessed even when large temperature differentials existed between the two spaces.


Claims are that the Infinite R under development could save up to 20 percent of house space-conditioning costs. A Computer model of the laboratory tests of the attic Infinite R insulation showed that it reduced the total heat flow by 22 percent and the peak heat flow was 42 percent lower than an equal thickness of fiberglass insulation. It reduced the air conditioning load by 40 percent and shifted the peak load up to eight hours, depending on climate. Infinite R insulation is most effective in climates that have sharp variations between day and night temperatures. Adopted in sufficient quantities, the technology could result in reductions of peak-hour energy use that make unnecessary the use of expensive utility peak-hour shaving power plants and defer the construction of additional power plants to meet peak energy demands.

A private company with the help of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory has developed a building envelope application. It has tested an attic insulation that absorbs daytime heat, releasing it at night. The Infinite R changes phases from solid to liquid at 82 degreesF, absorbing heat from the hot attic during the day, before it can penetrate the home. When attic temperatures cool at night, the Infinite R solidifies and releases heat back into the attic, moderating outdoor temperatures.

Imagine a layer of insulation (R-value) in a building where the temperature difference across that layer was near zero all the time! Imagine a product that (when used in conjunction with spray foam insulation,) seals the envelope, protects the space with "R" Value, and, Controls the Delta T across the Insulation!

Infinite R collects thermal energy from its environment and stores it until it reaches its "saturation point" or until the ambient temp drops below the phase change temp. In our case, our basic material has a phase change at 81 degrees F. So any temps above that number would be stored in the material and when the ambient drops below that temp (at night) the heat would be released by Infinite R. This would of course flatten out (modulate) the highest temps of the day (while the Infinite R is absorbing the heat unlike most other materials, it doesn't change temperature itself!) and perhaps more importantly, it would push forward 4-8 hrs the actual "Peak use period" for power companies. This of course would help to control customer energy costs as many utilities charge more for peak period use, and help prevent brown and blackouts by removing our customers' peak period from the load!

In heating environments, it acts as a heat storage material that can store thermal energy (either solar or mechanically generated) then release it at night. In radiant heat floors for example any excess heat would be collected by the Infinite R then when the floor heat is turned down or off, the Infinite R will release its heat and keep the floor warm (80degrees) for much of the night. For example, imagine sitting around a fire place where the room was too hot while the fire was burning bright then cooled very quickly when the fire died down, Infinite R in the wall would lower the temp in the room when the fire is roaring by absorbing heat above 81 degrees thus flattening out the peak temp, but when the fire dies down and the room begins to cool as the temp drops to 80 degrees the Infinite R will start releasing the energy (at 80 degrees) and tend to keep the room at that temp most of the night or day.
