Green Planet Group Confirms Efficacy of AAQIS HHO Generator

TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwired - Apr 26, 2016) -  Green Planet Group, Inc. (OTC PINK: GNPG) announced today that its AAQIS, Inc. wholly owned subsidiary has had the efficacy of oxyhydrogen (HHO) gas in reducing emissions while improving efficiency in coal-fired power plants. The need for such improvements in coal-fired electricity generation in light of the planet-wide focus on greenhouse gases and climate change has never been clearer:

  • 39% of all electricity used in the U.S. in 2014 came from coal-burning plants
  • 90% of U.S. coal production is used to generate electricity
  • Beginning in 2007, the U.S. EPA advanced restrictions on coal-fired plants to counteract mercury pollution, smog and global warming.
  • On August 3, 2015, President Obama announced plans for further restrictions on coal-fired plants to achieve a 32% reduction in 2030 in emissions from 2005 levels.

Company management has received confirmation of positive results of testing conducted by the Western Research Institute of Laramie, Wyoming. Western Research Institute (WRI) is a multi-million dollar, not-for-profit, research organization renowned for work in advanced energy systems, environmental technologies and highway materials research and technologies. Results of testing by WRI include:

  • Introduction of oxyhydrogen (HHO) gas did positively affect carbon conversion and, consequently, the combustion efficiency.
  • An increase in ash quality with respect to carbon content was noted. The baseline carbon content in the ash was approximately 11.5% of weight. After injecting HHO gas, the carbon content was as low as 7.7%, an improvement of 33%.
  • Coal consumption was reduced by almost 3% due to the improvement of carbon conversion efficiency.
  • SO2 formation was reduced primarily by reducing coal consumption by almost 3%.

The WRI research report noted, "The results indicate that HHO injection has the potential to increase carbon conversion, supply a clean burning energy source and reduce emission by displacement of coal."

Ed Lonergan, GNPG president and CEO, noted, "While more testing is required, it is now clear that application of our AAQIS HHO gas generation technology can have positive impact on coal consumption, air polluting emissions and ash. These initial findings by an independent laboratory provide exciting verification of our pre-production assumptions. We now have verification that our AAQIS HHO generator technology will reduce coal consumption in power plants and has the potential to extend the life of coal-fired electricity generation facilities."
