Alternative Environmental Technologies Announces Nigerian Ministry Approval to Deploy its Sulfex™ Desulfurization Tech

Nigerian Ministry of Petroleum Resources

We are very pleased that the Nigerian government has seen the benefits of AET’s cost saving and environmentally friendly desulfurization technology.”

— APPL Executive Director Muawiyah Umar Farouk

U.S.A., August 4, 2021 / — Alternative Environmental Technologies Holdings Corp. ("AET") is pleased to announce that the Nigerian Ministry of Petroleum Resources/Department of Petroleum Resources (“DPR”) has approved its unique, patented, cost-saving Sulfex™ desulfurization process for deployment to Nigeria and, by extension, the ECOWAS West African region that includes 15 West African countries. This is a direct result of the hard work of our Nigerian partner, Alternative Petroleum & Power Ltd. (“APPL”).

“AET would like to congratulate APPL and their team on this important milestone. We look forward to working with APPL to bring our Sulfex desulfurization technology to West Africa,” stated AET Director, Jack Carter.

“We are very pleased that the Nigerian government has seen the benefits of AET’s cost saving and environmentally friendly desulfurization technology. My entire team and I are very excited about the opportunity to move this forward,” stated APPL Executive Director Muawiyah Umar Farouk.

AET's unique, patented, cost-saving Sulfex™ desulfurization process uses liquids in a low pressure and low-temperature environment to achieve petroleum-based fuel sulfur levels less than 10 ppm and produces a finished fuel that is ready for use. AET's Sulfex™ process is operationally much less complicated than the HDS system currently used at refiners to desulfurize petroleum-based fuels, making it considerably less expensive and much safer to use. The process has been independently validated by the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Labs ( and the initial mass balance of the plant has also been reviewed and confirmed by a global engineering firm.

“In addition to Sulfex, AET looks forward to working with APPL to deploy some of AET’s other climate friendly technologies to West Africa, particularly AET’s EcoMix™ emulsion technologies,” stated AET Executive Director, Steve G. Stevanovich.

Other additional AET technologies include proprietary emulsion technologies that create stable mixtures of emulsified fuels which contain varying percentages of water content. The emulsion technology can be applied to various base fuels in combination with water, creating a wide array of pollution reducing fuels. These fuels reduce both oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) pollution created during the combustion process. AET's Diesel Oil Emulsions (DOE), Fuel Oil Emulsions (FOE) and Residual Oil Emulsions (ROE) have proven significant emission benefits over diesel and significant advantages over "alternative fuels" because their use requires no engine modifications, uses existing diesel fuel oil infrastructure, and requires virtually no re-training of personnel.

About Alternative Environmental Technologies Holdings Corp.

Alternative Environmental Technologies Holdings Corp. (“AET”) is an environmental technology company dedicated to comprehensive cost-effective solutions to environmental problems centering on the processing and usage of hydrocarbons. With more than 100 worldwide patents and patent applications, AET is the worldwide master licensee of the world's most extensive emulsified fuel technology platform.

Using its protected technologies, AET has developed products that provide economical ways to address the increasingly stringent environmental and emission regulations globally to:

• Remove as much as 99.9% of all sulfur compounds found in existing high sulfur fuels and middle distillates sourced from various refineries;
• Enhance combustion efficiency of fuel oil for industrial furnaces and boilers;
• Substitute water for expensive light distillates (i.e. diesel) in producing heavy fuel oil (HFO);
• Reduce Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions, the key hurdle to global adoption of biofuel and biodiesel-based products; and
• Remove sulfur from petroleum in ways that are both more economical as well as more environmentally friendly than methods in current use.

Equity-Focused Approach to Climate Policy Increases Health and Affordability Benefits

Targeting clean energy adoption and greenhouse gas reductions in high-impact communities can save lives, lower energy costs, and build climate resilience

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 4, 2021 / — As federal policymakers consider historic investments to reduce economy-wide carbon emissions, nearly half of all US states have already set binding targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Research released today from the nonprofit science and policy institute Physicians, Scientists, and Engineers (PSE) for Healthy Energy outlines benefits, strategies, and an actionable framework for integrating equity into these state and federal decarbonization policies.

The Bringing Health and Equity to Western States Deep Decarbonization reports analyze the public health, cost, and equity impacts associated with meeting 2020-2050 emissions targets in three Western states: New Mexico, Colorado, and Nevada. For each state, researchers identified regions and populations with high exposure to fossil fuel emissions; characterized household and transportation energy cost burdens; and identified strategies to reduce health-damaging air pollution, lower energy cost burdens, and increase climate resilience through decarbonization efforts. The state-based findings hold implications for climate and energy policy at every level, emphasizing the need and outlining strategies for an equity-focused approach.

“Communities currently burdened by pollution and high energy costs have the most to gain from a transition to clean energy,” said Dr. Elena Krieger, director of research at PSE Healthy Energy. “However, these same communities are frequently left behind when climate policies focus only on carbon emissions. Policies and programs that engage impacted communities upfront and directly address the inequities of our current energy system can help realize these health, economic, and resilience benefits for those who need them most.”

Across all three states, the reports show that focusing emissions reductions and clean energy adoption within targeted populations can reverse longstanding inequities. This equity-focused approach to decarbonization consistently resulted in a more equitable distribution of energy costs, lower public health risks in overburdened communities, and increased climate resilience in at-risk populations. However, the reports also show that decarbonization policies that fail to account for equity may result in prolonged exposure to health-harming pollutants and even increase energy and transportation costs for communities that are already disproportionately impacted by the current fossil fuel system.

Solarflux FOCUS parabolic dish concentrator demonstrates 72% solar-to-thermal conversion efficiency

The FOCUS concentrates sunlight onto a central receiver, where the energy is transferred into a circulating fluid

The FOCUS concentrates sunlight onto a central receiver

Annual energy yield from the FOCUS solar concentrator significantly above that of alternative solar energy systems

This report provides independent confirmation of what we have long known- that the low cost FOCUS solar parabolic dish concentrator is the highest performing solar technology out there.”

— Naoise Irwin, CEO

READING, PA, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2021 / — Solarflux Energy Technologies, Inc. (Solarflux) has announced the results of an independent report reviewing performance test results for the Solarflux FOCUS parabolic dish concentrator, demonstrating solar-to-thermal conversion efficiency of 72%. That is, the tests show that 72% of the solar energy arriving at the FOCUS is converted into usable heat.

This solar-to-thermal conversion efficiency is comparable to best-in-class solar-to-thermal conversion performance from alternative concentrating solar power (CSP) systems such as parabolic trough. However, unlike alternative CSP technologies, the FOCUS is a full two-axis tracking device. As such, it maintains perfect alignment with the sun from sunrise to sunset at all latitudes, thereby delivering maximum conversion efficiency throughout the day, and year-round.

As a result, the annual energy yield from the FOCUS is significantly above that of alternative solar energy systems, outperforming parabolic trough by up to 50% or more, depending on the system’s peak capacity and site location.

Prepared by Lehigh University’s Energy Research Center, the report independently reviews testing of solar-to-thermal conversion efficiency in close accordance with the methods outlined in the ASTM 905-87 industry standard relating to solar concentrators.

The FOCUS offers a low-cost, low-maintenance, zero-emission, modular thermal energy solution for a variety of use cases, including industrial process heat, water desalination and purification, space heating and cooling, hot water, and remote power generation.

Solarflux was founded in 2019 by a team dedicated to developing innovative technologies to help sustainably meet the growing energy demands of modern human civilization. The Solarflux team believes that parabolic dish concentrators offer unique potential to bring clean, inexpensive energy to a wide range of underserved market segments, particularly in regions of the world with an abundance of direct sunlight. Solarflux is backed by the Met-Ed Penelec Sustainable Energy Fund, Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania and private investors.
