JEV and leading U.S. manufacturer Superior Boiler partner to scale production to fulfill growing demand for patented GHG-free DCC™ hydrogen boilers
TULSA, OK and HUTCHINSON, KS / ACCESSWIRE / October 30, 2023 / Jericho Energy Ventures Inc. (TSXV:JEV)(OTC:JROOF)(FRA:JLM) ("Jericho", "JEV" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (the "MOU") with Hutchinson, Kansas-based Superior Boiler for the manufacturing of the breakthrough, award-winning, zero-emission DCC™ hydrogen- fueled boiler, developed by JEV's wholly owned subsidiary, Hydrogen Technologies ("HT").¹
Founded in 1917, ISO:9001:2015-certified Superior Boiler is a leading global manufacturer of Scotch Marine Firetube, industrial watertube and high-efficiency condensing boilers, as well as associated boiler room equipment for process steam, hot water and waste heat recovery. Superior Boiler has shipped more than 21,000 boilers throughout the U.S. and worldwide and is a leader in the facilitation of Green Energy solutions with boilers powered by alternative fuels.
Brian Williamson, CEO of JEV, commented: "Superior Boiler is among the most respected and trusted manufacturers of boilers and thermal equipment globally. They share our deep commitment to safety, quality and the environment. We are proud to have them as our U.S. manufacturing partner for our novel DCC™ system. Superior's Kansas manufacturing hub, located in the heart of the nation, is ideally positioned for efficient delivery of the DCC™ throughout all lower 48 states and beyond."
"Superior Boiler has always been at the forefront of technology enhancements and improvements within the boiler industry," said Superior Boiler President and CEO Doug Wright. "We recognize the market shift toward sustainable and renewable technologies to power tomorrow's boilers and are excited to partner with Hydrogen Technologies to provide a viable solution to the marketplace. Our boiler expertise, with an emphasis on quality, coupled with HT's zero-emission technology, provides a winning combination."
JEV and HT are at the forefront of providing emission-free solutions to the massive, hard-to-abate, heavy-polluting, commercial and industrial heat and steam markets. In August 2023, JEV announced its first U.S. boiler client, a major University which will deploy the DCC™ within its district heating system. HT has completed more than 30 site feasibility studies to date and anticipates additional DCC™ orders as organizations formally proceed to decarbonize their steam output.
DCC™ GHG-free hydrogen-fueled boilers offer a highly efficient and sustainable alternative to conventional fossil fuel-based boilers. DCC™ eliminates greenhouse gas emissions, providing a clean and eco-friendly source of steam for various industries and applications. Leveraging an exothermic reaction that combines pure hydrogen (H2) and pure oxygen (O2) gas, the DCC™ achieves an independently verified fuel efficiency of over 97%, with zero greenhouse gas emissions.² In December 2022, the DCC™ was awarded the Solar Impulse Foundation's prestigious "Solar Impulse Efficient Solution" label, recognizing profitable solutions to protect the environment.
