Lion Alternative Energy has filed a provisional patent application with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its nano-carbon coating technology which supports the safe transportation of hydrogen.
The clean technologies company on Monday (July 19) confirmed the news, stating that its nano-carbon coating technology deposits layered nano-hydrocarbon structures with concentrations of up to 90% or more in the diamond phase without depressurisation of the working chamber.
By efficiently and reliably apply the coatings customers are able to the emerging hydrogen economy as well as for medical implants and devices, whilst reducing the risks of corrosion that could cause fires and explosions.
Once converted into a US non-provisional application, the patent application will provide protection for Lion Alternative’s nano-carbon coating technology, effective upon a grant of a US patent.
Lion Alternative also plans to pursue an international (PCT) patent application, from which national stage patent applications can be submitted in both industrial jurisdictions and developing countries around the world.
