Patents

  
Starting with the patent for the steam reforming chemistry, Intellergy has protected the process and equipment used to create syngas from organic material. For this protection, the US Patent Office issued what is called a "basic" patent for the chemistry. We then extended this patent, by covering the use of all greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, etc) in the steam reforming process. Then we surrounded these patents with a variety of additional patents focusing on the use of the syngas and its conversion to various eco-products: hydrogen, biodiesel, ethanol additives, paraffins that sequester carbon, green electricity, and fertilizer, through the use of a variety of devices.

 

U.S. Patent No. 7,753,973: This process patent,entitled "Process and System for Converting Carbonaceous Feedstocks into Energy Without Greenhouse Gas Emissions," was filed Dec. 11, 2006 and issued July 13, 2010. This covers the interface to and integration with high temperature fuel cells or other applicable electrochemical device.

 

U.S. Patent No. 7,998,226: This process and system design patent, entitled "Appliance Converting Household Waste Into Energy," was filed Nov. 2, 2006 and issued Aug. 16, 2011. This presents a design of a small appliance package similar to the washer/dryer stack units sold today for residences and apartment complexes. This design uses building waste as well as sewage to produce heat and electricity.


U.S. Patent No. 7,556,736: This process and system design patent, entitled "Process and System for Converting Biomass Materials into Energy to Power Marine Vessels," was filed June. 24, 2005 and issued July 7, 2010. This presents a design of a marine vessel for harvesting ocean or river/lake floating waste and converting by stream/CO2 reforming to produce fuel for the vessel as well as marketable products for sales dockside.


U.S. Patent No. 7,220,502: The '465 patent has been updated as U.S. Patent Application 10/719,504 filed June 23, 2003, issued May 22, 2007. This extends the steam reformer to a rotary reformer, and is more narrow than the 183 patent.


U.S. Patent No. 7,132,183: The '465 patent has been updated as U.S. Patent Application 10/602,536 filed June 23, 2003. This extends the steam reformer to a rotary reformer, and broadens products synthesized to green organic products, building materials, methanol and others.


U.S. Patent No. 6,187,465: This basic chemistry method patent, entitled "Process and System for Converting Carbonaceous Feedstocks into Energy Without Greenhouse Gas Emissions," was filed Nov. 5, 1998 and issued Feb. 13, 2001.
