Aberdeen International Inc. Is Pleased to Provide Corporate Updates Regarding AES-100 Inc.
TORONTO, March 03, 2021 - Aberdeen International Inc. ("Aberdeen" or the "Company") (TSX: AAB) is pleased to share some exciting updates regarding its recent acquisition, AES-100 Inc. (see press releases dated February 1, 2021 and February 11, 2021).
The Advanced Electrolyzer System (AES) is a world-class system created by the team led by Pinakin Patel at T2M Global. Its proprietary technology allows for much lower cost production of hydrogen with no greenhouse gas emissions. AES is the only technology capable of producing high purity green hydrogen at highly competitive costs. AES targets <$5/kg H2, a significant and material improvement from the $10-15/kg H2 levels currently in the market place. The significant cost savings through AES should accelerate the adoption of hydrogen technology in accelerating growth sectors such as the fuel cell vehicle and renewable energy sectors.
- "Green Ammonia" - AES Technology has potentially unlocked ammonia as another method of hydrogen creation (https://www.t2mglobal.com/news). Pinakin Patel was the primary author, in conjunction with Venkat Pattabathula, formerly of Incitec Pivot, one of the largest ammonia producers in the world. Extensive infrastructure for ammonia can lead to lower cost hydrogen needed for transportation and stationary power. AES was used successfully to extract hydrogen from ammonia. The current ammonia market is about 200MM metric tons per year ($60 billion per year).
- Invited Talk at Nitrogen and Syngas International Conference: On March 1st, Pinakin Patel delivered a talk entitled "New Application of Ammonia: Fertilizer to Fuel". Ammonia is highly energy-dense carrier of hydrogen with a multitude of benefits. It is also carbon-free. Emerging use of ammonia as hydrogen carrier can potentially double the ammonia demand from 200 to 400 million metric tons per year. At $300 per ton of ammonia, this translates to an increase of $60 billion in new revenue for the ammonia industry. Building on existing infrastructure for ammonia will greatly benefit the emerging hydrogen fuel cell industry. A small ammonia plant producing about 1000 tons of ammonia per day can provide hydrogen for over 3000 trucks every day. AES technology is expected to play a significant role in this multi-billion-dollar Fertilizer to Fuel application.
