Save The World Air, Inc. (OTCQX:ZERO) (“STWA”) provides the global energy industry with patent-protected industrial equipment designed to deliver measurable performance improvements to crude oil pipelines. Developed in partnership with leading crude oil production and transportation entities, STWA’s high-value solutions address the enormous capacity inadequacies of domestic and overseas pipeline infrastructures that were designed and constructed prior to the current worldwide surge in oil production.
In support of our clients’ commitment to the responsible sourcing of energy and environmental stewardship, STWA combines scientific research with inventive problem solving to provide energy efficiency ‘clean tech’ solutions to bring new efficiencies and lower operational costs to the upstream, midstream and gathering sectors. STWA’s flagship product, AOT (Applied Oil Technology) improves the economics of transporting crude oil by reducing the viscosity of oil in pipelines. Once deployed on pipeline pumping stations, production and transportation companies benefit from the safer, more cost-effective delivery of greater volumes of oil while reducing energy consumption at pumping stations and lowering CO2 emissions.
The AOT technology is the result of years of research conducted at Temple University (Philadelphia, Penn.) and is the world’s first ASME-certified industrial hardware to use the principles of electrorheology, the study of applying non-uniform electrical fields to change the mechanical behavior of fluids, to significantly reduce the viscosity of crude oil within pipelines during maximum flow conditions. Field tested by the U.S. Department of Energy, independent testing laboratories such as ATS RheoSystems and fabricated to exacting industry standards by STWA’s supply chain partners, the efficacy of AOT to increase flow rates, prevent bottlenecks, reduce pump station power consumption, enhance pipeline integrity and optimize flow assurance has been proven repeatedly in the lab and on a 300,000 barrel per day pipeline.
STWA is also commercializing STWA Joule Heat, an energy-efficient technology for heating crude oil in pipelines to improve flow. Unlike traditional trace heating systems which generate heat via a resistive trace heating element which transfers energy into the oil, the STWA solution applies an electrical field directly to oil, generating heat within the flow itself. The result is optimal heat conductivity and performance with less power and in a smaller form factor.
Guided by a dynamic management team led by Greggory Bigger, Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and a strong independent board of directors of energy industry veterans, STWA is a revenue generating company with a solid cash position, clean balance sheet and a proven ability to develop and deliver industrial-grade equipment that support the company’s mission and enhance shareholder value. As the exclusive licensee of oil viscosity reduction processes developed at Temple University and owner of 48 worldwide patents related to the use of electricity to change the mechanical behavior of oil and liquid natural gas, STWA is well-positioned to capitalize on the explosive growth opportunities in the global crude oil production and transportation sector.
