RadMax Technologies Announces Agreement with TAKEnergy Inc. For Natural Gas Expander Power Generation Development
Spokane, Washington, November 2, 2021 — REGI U.S., Inc. (“REGI” or “RGUS” or “the Company”) (OTCQB:RGUS). The Board of Directors, Regi U.S., Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary RadMax Technologies, Inc. (RadMax) are pleased to announce an agreement with TAKEnergy Inc. (Take), Calgary, AB, to support RadMax’s demonstration project of natural gas expander power generation for the Oil and Gas and Pipeline industries in Canada.
In its project supporting role, Take will be providing RadMax with engineering, manufacturing, financial and other support, as well as Alberta test site services. RadMax and Take will continue to collaborate on a commercialization plan for RadMax’s patented technology.
The project is being supported in part through CD$72,000 in approved funding from NGIF Industry Grants (Canada). (Read the NGIF news announcement here). It will demonstrate the economic feasibility and operational effectiveness of the RadMax device as a means to reducing methane emissions at the wellhead and at gas pipeline pressure let down stations. The project will be further supported and performed at an ATCO Natural Gas distribution facility in Calgary, AB.
RadMax’s natural gas expander can capture energy in pressure letdown applications and convert it to power. It uses the pressure differential from streaming natural gas to generate electricity or compressed air, either of which can be used to drive pneumatic valve actuator controllers, or provide an inexpensive source of dependable, green power for the site.
“Our ability to offer economical, reliable and cleantech alternatives for powering control, monitoring and communication devices is a significant breakthrough for regulators, producers and operators looking to reduce methane emissions from the over three million natural gas producing wells globally,” explained Paul Porter, RadMax President and Chief Technology Officer.
“This technology will play an important role in helping Canada’s natural gas industry meet newly mandated methane reduction targets. It also addresses a market for zero emission small scale power generation in pressure letdown applications for pipelines and commercial buildings. TAKEnergy is excited to partner with RadMax to bring this technology to market,” said James Cleland, President of TAKEnergy.
