HDS International Announces Acquisition of License for Carbon Capture and Algae-to-Biofuel Technologies
PROVIDENCE, R.I., Aug. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- HDS International Corp. (OTCQB: HDSI) today announced that it has acquired an exclusive license relating to carbon capture, carbon sequestration and industrial algae-for-biofuels technologies from Hillwinds Ocean Energy, LLC.
The acquired technology can be applied for ocean-based biomass production through the fixation of carbon dioxide (CO2) in biological systems. The technology can be applied to remove large volumes of CO2 from the waste emissions of a carbon emitter (reducing their CO2 pollution), and to also efficiently transfer large volumes of CO2 to photosynthetic organisms, boosting growth rates. The Company's technology enables all natural, industrial non-toxic ocean-based algae production systems, providing for significantly reduced production expenses and increased productivity of renewable and sustainable biofuel feedstock and bio-product production.
The Company also announced that Tassos D. Recachinas, an executive with experience in small and large organizations spanning a wide range of positions in development, operations, finance and business management, has been appointed the President, CEO, CFO, Secretary, Treasurer and a Director of the Company. Concurrently therewith, Mark Simon, the Company's sole officer and director prior to this transaction, resigned from all positions with Company.
"We are very pleased to announce the consummation of this transaction relating to breakthrough carbon capture, sequestration, and algae-to-biofuels technologies," said Mr. Recachinas, CEO of HDS International. "With this acquisition, HDS is strategically positioned to capitalize on the already enormous and growing opportunity associated with addressing the world's most significant long-term problems, namely eco-sustainability and energy independence."
Under the terms of the license, HDS will seek to apply its technology within its licensed territory to develop fully integrated carbon capture, sequestration, and algae-for-biofuels production and processing facilities.
Algae is a renewable and sustainable source of biofuel feedstock, and contains protein and carbohydrates that can be processed into other marketable co-products. Algae-based biofuels represent the most promising large-scale substitute to petroleum, and ocean-based algae production systems provide the most promising, scalable pathway overcoming many of the hurdles associated with other conventional and alternative energy sources, while recycling carbon in a manner that is efficient, affordable and environmentally stable.
