Pond Carbon to Serve as Future Revenue Driver and Brand Surrounding all Carbon Abatement and Algae Growth Commercial Projects

MARKHAM, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 23, 2022 / Pond Technologies Holdings Inc., an ESG company addressing global sustainability challenges of wellness and climate change, announces it has officially launched Pond Carbon to be the go forward brand during its commercialization efforts.

Pond Carbon will be engaged in the sale and licensing of its CO2 abatement technology to project developers, funders, engineering companies, and others in partnership with industrial emitters. Pond has developed a proprietary system that can profitably transform CO2 into valuable products. In large vessels (bioreactors), Pond Carbon grows algae which absorb greenhouse gas emissions, transforming these into valuable food, feed, and nutraceutical ingredients.

Pond Technologies Inc. (a subsidiary of Pond) will hold the intellectual property rights as it relates to the technology. Pond Carbon will hold the contracts for the licensing, consulting, and proprietary equipment sales, including those previously announced contracts with AB Agri and a fortune 500 oil and gas major, located in Canada.

Peter Howard, VP Project Developments at Pond states “The launch of Pond Carbon is significant as we work through our opportunity pipeline in 2022, progressing towards a commercial product line. This year, we expect to announce new disruptive partnerships across a myriad of different industries to drive revenue growth and showcase algae growth stemming from the sequestration of carbon from Pond’s innovative technology. We feel our technology has significant advantages over incumbents, in regard to lack of contamination and consistent quality and look forward to providing updates on our progress.”

Grant Smith, President & CEO at Pond said: “The introduction of Pond Carbon is well timed, as we showcase a compelling value proposition for potential clients. Our key message is we utilize a vertically integrated model to enable industries to monetize their waste emissions, reduce their carbon footprint and create sustainable products. Future clients are also afforded the opportunity to go after carbon credits once a Pond commercial facility at scale is launched.”

About Pond Technologies Holdings Inc.

Located in Markham, Ontario, Pond Technology is a technology leader in controlled environment cultivation of micro-algae. In over ten years of R&D, Pond has developed a robust disruptive technology platform based on artificial intelligence, proprietary LED-lights and patented CO2-Management. The use of concentrated CO2 from industrial waste streams enables Pond to boost productivity of micro-algae well beyond the capacity of outdoor algae growers and allows industrial emitters to abate and ultimately recycle CO2. Pond is currently selling micro-algae derived antioxidant astaxanthin under its Regenurex brand. As micro-algae are becoming increasingly important in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, nutraceuticals, human nutrition, aqua farming, bioplastics and biofuels, Pond has begun to license its technology to third parties for ongoing license fees and royalties. Pond recently added a Biotech division focused on the growth of unique strains of micro-algae to be used as a reproductive medium for the expression of human anti-bodies and proteins.
