September 29, 2021, Guelph, Ontario.  Current Water Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: WATR) ("CWTI" or "the Company" or "the Corporation"), an emerging technology leader in the management of industrial and municipal wastewater, and now in the development of novel hydrogen and lithium recovery technologies announces the filing  of a provisional patent application for its AmmEl-H2 system.

 The filing of this application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) establishes an early effective filing date and allows CWTI to ascribe the phrase “patent pending” to any commercial products, methods, or services contemplated by the subject matter claimed. The patent application, once converted into a U.S. non-provisional, utility application, provides the detailed claims upon which legal protection is afforded upon a grant of a U.S. patent. CWTI also plans to submit individual national stage patent applications in select international jurisdictions.

 Our patent pending AmmEl-H2 technology generates hydrogen gas while simultaneously removing toxic ammonia from wastewater. This process differs from traditional electrolyzers that are operated for the sole purpose of producing hydrogen gas. Therefore, the AmmEl-H2 has the benefit of generating dual purpose revenue streams.

 Dr. Gene Shelp, CEO said, “During the past year, Current Water has leveraged its technical endowment into pursuing new markets and business opportunities.  One of the most exciting opportunities is “green hydrogen”.  The company’s goal is to convert costly municipal wastewater treatment facilities into profit centers by converting the ammonia into environmentally friendly nitrogen gas and pure, fuel cell grade, hydrogen gas. Due to the ubiquity of wastewater treatment plants around the globe, our vision is to convert these facilities into energy storage centers − vital components in the future electrical grid. 

These locally-created energy storage centers would facilitate the transition of municipal fleets from conventional internal combustion engine vehicles to more efficient hydrogen-powered, fuel-cell electric vehicles. In contrast to conventional internal combustion engines, fuel cell electric vehicles do not generate exhaust pollutants, and therefore can  dramatically improve the poor atmospheric conditions plaguing major cities globally.”
