Vancouver, British Columbia–(Marketwired – August 13, 2015) – Mantra Energy Alternatives Ltd., a subsidiary of Mantra Venture Group Ltd. (OTCQB: MVTG), has announced that it will be exhibiting at the National Clean Energy Summit 8.0 in Las Vegas on August 24th. The company will also be presenting at the Electrochemical Energy Science and Technology (EEST) 2015, which runs from August 16th to the 22nd.
“This is the ideal excellent platform for Mantra to exhibit on, as the room will be full of key industrial and government players – including President Obama as the keynote speaker,” said Larry Kristof, Mantra’s CEO.
The National Clean Energy Summit “has been the national stage for clean energy development discussions for eight years and serves as the country’s most visible and influential gathering of leaders and top policy makers”. This year’s summit will focus on the benefits of public-private partnerships to deploy clean energy. Mantra will be promoting the company’s technologies at a booth on the exhibition floor at the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre.
“The emissions cuts legislated through the Obama Administration’s recently announced Clean Power Plan will require the deployment of carbon utilization and energy storage systems, both areas directly addressed by Mantra’s technologies,” continued Mr. Kristof.
The Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan, announced on August 3rd, requires that states reduce carbon emissions to 32% below 2005 levels by 2030. Mantra’s management anticipates that this announcement will spur already widespread interest in the company’s technologies, especially on a platform such as the Clean Energy Summit.
“We have continued to establish important connections and explore strategic partnerships through our exhibiting at and attending international conferences,” said Dr. Sona Kazemi, Mantra’s CTO. “The Clean Energy Summit will be Mantra’s best opportunity yet to develop relationships with critical industry players and policy makers.”
Mantra will also be presenting at EEST 2015. The conference is the second conference organized by the International Academy of Electrochemical Energy Science, and consists of plenary talks, invited keynote speeches and poster presentations focusing on electrochemical energy research, development and applications. Dr. Kazemi will be giving two presentations on Tuesday, August 18, on Mantra’s technologies. The first will cover renewable energy storage through CO2 conversion, and the second the production of chemicals and fuels from CO2.
“With these presentations, Mantra continues to demonstrate leadership and innovation in the fields of applied electrochemistry and CO2 valourisation,” said Patrick Dodd, Mantra’s VP of Corporate Development.
Mantra’s management will be available for meetings on the road between Vancouver and Las Vegas from August 20th to the 25th. Investors in the area are encouraged to reach out to arrange a meeting.
About Mantra Venture Group
Mantra Venture Group Ltd. (OTCQB: MVTG) is a clean technology incubator that takes innovative emerging technologies and moves them towards commercialization. The Company, through its subsidiary Mantra Energy Alternatives, is currently developing two groundbreaking electrochemical technologies designed to make reducing greenhouse gas emissions profitable, ERC (Electro-Reduction of Carbon Dioxide) and MRFC (Mixed-Reactant Fuel Cell).
ERCis a form of “carbon capture and utilization” (CCU) that converts the polluting greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into useful, valuable products including formic acid and formate salts. By utilizing clean electricity, the process offers the potential for an industrial plant to reduce emissions while generating a salable product and a profit.
The MRFC is an unconventional fuel cell that uses a mixture of fuel and oxidant, thereby greatly reducing the complexity and cost of the fuel cell system. Ideal for portable applications, the MRFC is cheaper, lighter, and more compact than conventional fuel cell technologies.
