Founded by the Alberta Mining Corporation (AMC) and Chief Scientist Wayne May, this Calgary-based company is seeking to provide people around the world with clean energy and water through technological innovation.

Implementing an unprecedented method, Binary Fluid Injector technology uses a high-performance heat pump or refrigeration cycle that is driven directly by thermal energy – rather than electricity. This unlocks the potential for widespread use of renewable thermal energy – such as waste heat, geothermal, and solar thermal energy – on an industrial scale. And where industrial energy is unavailable, switching from electricity to natural gas will significantly reduce energy costs and GHG emissions.
