Independent third parties carried out a project utilising THERMAL-XR ® on a diesel bus’s air conditioner and showed a 2.7% FUEL SAVINGS and 25% less cooling time to reach the set operating temperature. The results are highlighted in the table below.
Source: Results from over a two (2) hour period in a controlled facility whilst monitoring time and fuel usage. A Thermo King DAS (Data Acquisition System), standalone data recorder, (not connected to the AC system) with TK Wintrac 5 software was used to download the data for the Pull Down Test, and a proprietary Volvo Telematic System recorded the fuel data. Test was conducted inside a Spray ‘n’ Bake paint booth Model TNT-3-20/6.
GMG CEO Craig Nicol stated, “Where a city bus uses 25,000 litres of diesel fuel per year, with approximately 220 hours per month, THERMAL-XR® powered by GMG graphene based off these test results could potentially save over 650 litres of diesel fuel per year per bus – a significant cost saving for a city bus operator. This would also mean reducing approximately 1.8 tonne of carbon dioxide emissions per annum for each bus.”
“These results highlight the opportunity that THERMAL-XR® powered by GMG graphene also has with transport air conditioning – saving diesel fuel and improving driver and passenger comfort. There are approximately 3 million city buses in the world (~13% being electric) which could use our product to save fuel/energy and emissions or extend battery life (if electric) – which is obviously a significant opportunity for GMG” said Craig Nicol.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.
This document contains “forward-looking information” and “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of applicable securities legislation, including statements relating to: (a) the demand for THERMAL-XR® and cooling; and (b) management’s expectations of the effects of Thermal-XR® and cooling as a result of the independent third party projects.
Such forward-looking statements are based on a number of assumptions of management, including, without limitation, assumptions that the expected results of cooling and the THERMAL-XR® will be consistent with the Company’s expectations as a result of the independent third party projects, and that the market demand for the Company’s THERMAL-XR® will be consistent with the Company’s expectations. Additionally, forward-looking information involve a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual plans, intentions, activities, results, performance or achievements of GMG to be materially different from any future plans, intentions, activities, results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks include, without limitation: (a) the expected results of cooling and the THERMAL-XR® will not be consistent with the Company’s expectations as a result of the independent third party projects, and (b) there will be not global market trend or demand for THERMAL-XR® or cooling; and (c) public health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic may adversely impact the Company’s business.
There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The Company does not intend, and expressly disclaims any intention or obligation to, update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
