NanoLogix, Inc. Announces The Successful Conversion Of Welch's Waste Stream Into Usable Hydrogen

SHARON, Pa., May 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NanoLogix, Inc. announced today that hydrogen has been generated at its first commercial scaled-up hydrogen bioreactor facility at a Welch Food's plant in North East, Pennsylvania. The company previously announced the construction of the facility and its intent to begin hydrogen generation from Welch's waste organic matter.

The dependence upon fossil fuels is drawing to a close with the achievement of alternative fuel from waste streams from manufacturing facilities worldwide.

The technology behind the hydrogen bioreactor, developed and proprietary to NanoLogix, is intended to enable manufacturing facilities to convert their waste stream into hydrogen. The alternative energy source then can be converted, on-site, to electricity, thus contributing immediately to the manufacturing facilities bottom line.

David F. Rivers, a director of NanoLogix, CEO of Patriot Lift Company ( and who spent more than 30 years with Pfizer's Schick & Wilkinson Sword business unit and General Motors' Fisher Body Division in Senior Research, Development and Engineering operations, commented that, "The generation of hydrogen demonstrates NanoLogix's capability to convert its prolific intellectual property portfolio into needed technologies."

David C. McClelland, President of NanoLogix, commented, "The success NanoLogix has had in converting the waste stream at Welch's into hydrogen is indicative of the extremely exciting possibilities for continuous generation of hydrogen in the future."

Professor Rick Diz of Gannon University, the lead scientist in the project and consultant to NanoLogix stated, "I am pleased to confirm the bioreactor at Welch's is producing hydrogen. Gas chromatography confirmed hydrogen and no methane."
