Mantra Energy owns the intellectual property applied for in WO 2007/041872, titled “Continuous Co-Current Electrochemical Reduction of Carbon Dioxide.” This IP was obtained from Professor Oloman in 2008, after seven years of development at the Clean Energy Research Centre of the University of British Columbia. Patents have since been obtained in Canada, India, China, and Australia and patent examinations are underway in the United States and Europe.
Mantra Energy’s IP portfolio will be expanded through development projects and acquisition. New IP is currently being developed to broaden the capability of ERC, increasing the range of products possible. Novel applications of ERC products will be collaboratively developed to open up new multi-billion dollar markets.
