(DDNFF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Adamera Minerals Corp. is a junior exploration company listed on the OTC Markets. It is exploring for high-grade gold deposits in the well-established mining district of northeastern Washington State. At present, the Company is drilling a number of targets in the Cooke Mountain district. Adamera Minerals has its head office in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The northeastern Washington State region has produced more than 6,000,000 oz of gold historically. Adamera Minerals is exploring several highly prospective projects and is the most dominant regional exploration company. This area also has the Kettle River Mill on Care and Maintenance that is depleted of ore which could be strategically beneficial.

Adamera Minerals holds an extensive land position in the Cooke Mountain area in Washington State. The land surrounds or includes part of 5 past producing mines including Overlook, Lamefoot, Key West, Key East and Belcher. The Kettle River Gold Mill is central to the Company’s Cooke Mountain project.

The Empire Creek property is on the western margin of the Republic Graben 6km south of the K2 Mine that produced more than 1 million ounces of gold and 15km north of the Republic gold district that hosts 3M oz. @ 20g/t Au and 16M oz. @ 110g/t Ag. The Flag Hill Mine Property is on BLM land within the Republic Gold Mine district, 1 km from the Eureka trend where greater than 2.8 million ounces of gold (average grade 20g/t) and 15.8 million ounces of silver (average grade 110 g/t) were recovered. The property is 10 kilometers from the Kettle River Mill.

The Talisman Historic Copper-Silver Mine is roughly 95 kilometers by major highway from the Teck Trail Smelter. Samples from the initial program yielded mineralization as high as 144 g/t silver, 3.45% copper, 6.3% lead and 6.91% zinc. A recently completed magnetic survey defined a large magnetic high anomaly west of the mine, which appears to be associated with this mineralization.

In July 2019, Adamera Minerals announced that drill permits were granted by the US Forest Service for the Outlook Ridge target on the Cooke Mountain Project in Washington State. The Outlook Ridge drill permits are in addition to permits earlier granted on the Oversight, Lamefoot South, and Goodfoot properties that provides greater than 50 drill sites for testing.

Bear Creek Mining Corporation (BCEKF)

Bear Creek Mining Corporation is a foremost Peru-focused silver exploration and development company. Its flagship Corani Project is one of the largest undeveloped silver deposits in the world. The Company’s Executives and Directors have a substantial breadth and depth of experience discovering, advancing, financing, developing, constructing and operating mines in Latin America. Bear Creek Mining is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQX.

Corani is Bear Creek Mining’s most advanced mineral property. The 100 percent owned Corani silver-lead-zinc property is in the Andes Mountains of Peru, roughly 160 kilometers southeast of Cusco in a sparsely populated high mountain desert environment. This project consists of 13 mineral concessions. These form a contiguous block of ground encompassing approximately 5,700 hectares.

The Corani deposit (besides its size and projected life-span) contains considerable base metal credits. It is positioned in a mining-friendly jurisdiction and enjoys overwhelming community support. The Corani Project contains more than 250 million ounces of silver, 2.7 billion pounds of lead, and 1.8 billion pounds of zinc.

The expectation is that the Corani Project will produce greater than 8 million ounces of silver and 150 million pounds of combined lead and zinc over an 18-year mine life. Corani is highly leveraged to metal prices, with a $112 million increase in NPV (Net Present Value - the difference between the present value of cash inflows and the present value of cash outflows over a period of time ) for every $1 increase in silver price with proportional changes in lead and zinc prices.

Moreover, Bear Creek Mining has its exploration project - Maria Jose. The Maria Jose Prospect is positioned in the Department of Ancash, 140 km NNW of Lima, Peru. This property hosts a system of mesothermal quartz veins and shear zones. These have been observed over a strike length of around 4km. They range in thickness from 0.20 meters to 1.8 meters with average widths of roughly 1 meter.

Exposed vein intersections reach up to 4.5 meters returning an average of 27.2 g/t gold. During 2015 and 2016, mapping and channel sampling of seven veins yielded values ranging from 1.0 g/t to 233 g/t gold.

Last month, Bear Creek Mining announced that it filed a Feasibility Study Technical Report (as defined in National Instrument 43-101) concerning its Corani Silver-Lead-Zinc property in Peru, entitled "Bear Creek Mining, Corani Project, NI 43-101 Technical Report" (the 2019 Report). The 2019 Report supports and augments the technical results and economic analysis announced in the Company's news release issued on November 5, 2019. The 2019 Report is dated effective December 17, 2019. It was prepared on behalf of Bear Creek Mining by Ausenco Services Pty Ltd. with contributions from other mining and engineering consulting firms.

Bear Creek Mining originally acquired a 70 percent interest in the Corani Property from Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration Ltd. in March of 2007. This interest was increased to 100 percent in February of 2011 after the Company completed the terms of a purchase and sale agreement dated March 6, 2008 with Rio Tinto for its remaining 30 percent interest.

MetaStat, Inc. (MTST)

Goldman Small Cap Research, Innovative Marketing, Club Penny Stocks Network, OTCBB Journal, First Penny Picks, StocksImpossible, Pumps and Dumps, and The MicrocapNews reported previously on MetaStat, Inc. (MTST), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter. 

OTCQB-listed, MetaStat, Inc. is a personalized medicine company developing therapeutic and diagnostic treatment solutions for cancer patients. The Company develops and commercializes diagnostic products and novel therapeutics for the early and reliable prediction and treatment of systemic metastasis - the process by which cancer spreads from a primary tumor through the bloodstream to other areas of the body.  MetaStat’s focus is on breast, prostate, lung, and colorectal cancers, where systemic metastasis is responsible for approximately 90 percent of all deaths.

A life sciences company, MetaStat is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. In essence, MetaStat’s core expertise includes an understanding of the mechanisms and pathways that drive tumor cell invasion and metastasis, and also drug resistance to certain targeted therapies and cytotoxic chemotherapies.

The basis of MetaStat’s function-based diagnostic platform technology is on the identification and understanding of the vital role of the mena protein and its isoforms  (a common pathway for the development of systemic metastatic disease in all epithelial-based solid tumors).

The design of the MetaSite Breast™ and MenaCalc™ product lines are to accurately stratify patients based on their individual risk of metastasis and to enable clinicians to better customize cancer treatment decisions through positively identifying patients with a high-risk of metastasis who need aggressive therapy and by sparing patients with a low-risk of metastasis from the damaging side effects and cost of chemotherapy. 

The MetaSite Breast™ test measures the process of systemic metastasis. MenaCalc™, a platform of diagnostic assays, based on the measurement of the balance of the Mena protein isoforms, is widely applicable in solid epithelial-based cancers.

The intention of the MetaSite Breast™ test is for use in patients with early stage (stage 1-3), invasive breast cancer who have node-negative or node positive (1-3), estrogen receptor-positive, HER2-negative disease.

In August of 2017, MetaStat announced that accomplished drug developer, Renato T. Skerlj, Ph.D., joined the Company as a member of its Scientific and Clinical Advisory Board. Dr. Skerlj has more than 25 years of pharmaceutical experience in drug development resulting in two marketed drugs: Invanz® and Mozobil® and numerous drugs in clinical development.

He serves as Vice President of Drug Discovery and Preclinical Development at Lysosomal Therapeutics Inc. Dr. Skerlj is a Co-Founder and a Member of the Scientific Advisory Board of X4 Pharmaceuticals, Inc. He is also Co-Founder of Noliva Therapeutics.

Agritek Holdings, Inc. (AGTK)

CFN Media Group, Promotion Stock Secrets, PennyPro, SmallCapVoice, and Cannabis Financial Network News reported on Agritek Holdings, Inc. (AGTK), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Formed in 2010, Agritek Holdings, Inc. is a fully integrated, active cannabis real estate investor and branding consultant in the legal cannabis sector. The Company provides innovative technology and agricultural solutions for the medicinal and recreational cannabis industry.

The Company has a satellite office in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Agritek does not directly grow, harvest, or distribute or sell cannabis or any substances that violate or contravene United States law or the Controlled Substances Act. It does not intend to do so in the future. The Company’s solution is an integrated platform designed for commercialization in three high-value segments of the global cannabis market – Real Estate, AGTK Brands/IP, and Infrastructure.

Agritek’s Colorado property is 80-Acres approved for cannabis cultivation or manufacturing facility in Pueblo, Colorado.

With the five-year operational contract and licensing agreement, Agritek will receive revenue in the form of property rent, licensing fees on all vaporizer and edible brands, equipment and lighting rental and financing fees along with equity interest in the property.

Also, in May, Agritek Holdings announced that it executed a land purchase agreement to purchase a "420 Style" resort and estate property about one hour outside of Quebec City, Quebec. This 15-acre estate comprises nine innovative guest suites and horse stables. It is within walking distance to a public golf course that the Company will have ownership in for guests staying at the resort. A separate structure will serve as a small grow facility run by patient employees and caretakers on the property that may be toured by guests of the facility.

Recently, Agritek Holdings announced that Phase One of construction is commencing this month at the 1919 Clinic's 25,000 square foot cultivation and manufacturing facility located in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight MCTC Holdings Inc. (MCTC).

MCTC Holdings (OTC: MCTC), doing business as Cannabis Global Inc., recently filed its fifth patent under its Hemp You Can Feel(TM) brand after lab results surpassed the company’s expectations for demonstrating cannabis particle infusion on a minuscule, undetectable basis. To view the full article, visit http://cnw.fm/XXH1o.

MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC) is an innovator in the field of cannabinoid nanoparticles and infusion technologies with several important cannabinoid patents filed and an active research and development program underway. The company was reorganized during June of 2019 and announced its intent to enter the cannabis sector and change its corporate identity to Cannabis Global Inc. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.

With the hemp and cannabis industries rapidly expanding in terms of market size, acceptance and number of market participants, MCTC plans to concentrate its efforts on the middle portions of the hemp and cannabis value chain. The company is actively pursuing R&D programs and productization of advanced cannabinoid delivery systems, based on solid polymeric nanoparticles and fibers. These technologies hold the promise to revolutionize the science of cannabinoid bio-enhancement for use in foods, beverages, consumer products and in transdermal applications. Because of nanoparticles’ ability to be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, nanotechnology has been utilized in the food and drug industry for some time and has the potential for tremendous growth in the cannabis industry (http://nnw.fm/v6RQ6).

Cutting-Edge Technology

MCTC is at the cutting-edge of the cannabis industry’s trends with its emphasis on polymeric nanotechnology. This is not to be confused with the more basic oil-in-water nano-emulsions currently marketed to the food and beverage industry. The company’s polymer-based particles offer significant loading of active ingredients and unmatched flexibility and customization, allowing for myriad combinations of cannabinoids with unique performance characteristics. MCTC believes polymeric nanotechnology particles will be a critical technology area for the cannabinoid formulation marketplace.

The company continues to build its R&D program, specifically researching the development of improving methods to make cannabinoids available to living systems. Instrumental in the research program is the development of novel polymeric nanoparticles and nanofibers. These have the potential to elevate the potential of cannabinoid products in the following ways (http://nnw.fm/cK3Bl):

  • Significantly improving bioavailability
  • Allowing for ultra-high loading rates
  • Enhancing customization of cannabinoid combinations
  • Improved dosing precision
  • Providing more control in release parameters

MCTC leadership understands the importance of developing intellectual property (IP) in the ever-evolving cannabis industry. A recent Forbes article described IP as “critical for creating true differentiation between companies and their product and service offerings” (http://nnw.fm/57Fjh). Recognizing the importance of IP, MCTC has been consistent in its application for patents to protect its innovative nanotechnology applications.

Patents

MCTC has now filed four patents on its cannabinoid delivery technology systems:

  • The company first collaborated with Cannabis Nanosciences Inc. on technologies. This became the basis for its first patent filing on an innovative edible dissolvable film for cannabinoid ingestion.
  • Its second patent filing for cannabinoid nanoparticles combined TPGS, a water-soluble form of vitamin E.
  • Its third patent filing involved a unique 4th dimension, 3D printed cannabinoid delivery system for beverages.
  • Its fourth patent, considered its most significant, broadly covers many aspects of nanoparticles and nano fibers comprising one or more cannabinoids disposed at least partially within a water-soluble medium.

Collaborations

MCTC collaborated with Marijuana Company Inc. (OTCQB: MCOA) subsidiary hempSmart Inc., under a hemp extract and CBD product supply agreement wherein hempSmart will utilize its extensive network of marketing partners to market MCTC’s powered drink mixes and other CBD edibles online. These products are designed for the dry beverage and edibles sector and will be supplied by MCTC. They incorporate the company’s patent-pending cannabinoid infusion technologies and will be trademarked as Hemp You Can Feel (TM) and Gummies You Can Feel (TM).

Leadership

MCTC CEO and chairman Arman Tabatabaei boasts 15 years of management and operations experience and is considered an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting, and profit and loss management. He has acted as a consultant with Cannabis Strategic Ventures (OTCQB: NUGS) and played an instrumental role in improving operations at Sugarmade Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) relative to the company’s hydroponic growth supplies initiatives.

MCTC founder and director Robert Hymers also brings a seasoned perspective, having had significant experiences in the cannabis industry and as a financial executive and consultant. He is the managing partner of Pinnacle Tax Services in Los Angeles and was previously CFO and director of Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA). He is currently a member of the Strategic Advisory Board at Massroots Inc. and acts as a consultant to both Cannabis Strategic Ventures Inc. and Sugarmade Inc. Hymers’ background in tax accounting, auditing, SEC reporting, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate finance has immense value in his current position at MCTC Holdings.

LiveWire Ergogenics Inc. (OTC: LVVV)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight LiveWire Ergogenics Inc. (LVVV).

LiveWire Ergogenics Inc. (OTC: LVVV) was featured today in a publication from HempWireNews, examining how, after decades of being classified as a controlled substance, hemp was finally legalized in 2018 by the Farm Bill. The legislation classified cannabis with less than 0.3% THC as industrial hemp. THC, or delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical in marijuana that makes users ‘high’, and legal hemp varieties have minuscule levels of it.

LiveWire Ergogenics Inc. (OTC: LVVV) is a forward-thinking company specializing in identifying and monetizing current and future trends in the health and wellness industry. The company recognizes significant potential in the multibillion-dollar cannabis industry and operates at the forefront for acquisition and management of licensed cannabis real estate locations and the research, development and commercialization of high-end products for distribution throughout California.

During the past two years, LiveWire has diligently researched, secured, designed and set up several fully compliant and permitted cannabis operations in locations in California, including a state-wide distribution license from the Bureau of Cannabis Control. The company is focused on acquiring compliant real estate properties for cannabis operations and entering into operation agreements and strategic alliances to build teams of carefully selected and vetted operators, horticulturists, extractors, distributors and establish research partnerships. Its current portfolio of cannabis operations consists of the following properties:

PODs and Distribution in Coachella, California

For the past year, LiveWire has operated high-tech, state-of-the-art production structures, or “PODs” for its cannabis nursery business. Coachella is also home to the company’s statewide distribution headquarters. Both entities operate under LiveWire’s majority owned subsidiary, GHC Ventures. The company is currently in the process to strategically centralize all operations at its recently acquired Paso Robles facility, Estrella Ranch.

Estrella Ranch in Paso Robles, California

Through its subsidiary, Estrella Ranch Partners LLC, LiveWire acquired a 265-acre historic ranch property in Paso Robles, Calif. Estrella Ranch has a longstanding history, once owned by George R. Hearst, the eldest grandson of the late William Randolph Hearst, developer of Hearst Communications, and is considered among the finest ranches in California and the gem of the California Central Coast. LiveWire is transforming this property into the world’s first “Estate-Grown Weedery” with plans to develop it into a vertically integrated, high-end cannabis facility and wellness retreat in California. The stunning property, located in the heart of the world renown California wine country, currently houses three spacious residences, storage areas, and elaborate equestrian facilities with four barns and numerous stables. LiveWire is designing a truly unique property that features indoor and outdoor cannabis operations, including large outdoor and indoor cannabis production. Long-range plans include adding teaching and luxury recreational facilities focused on providing a comprehensive and unique cannabis-related retreat experience.

 

The Paso Robles Nursery

LiveWire has begun the build-out and will soon begin production in its 22,000-square-foot secure indoor cannabis nursery facility in Paso Robles, Calif. The project includes the conversion of two existing buildings with sufficient power capacity and abundant water supply. Floor plans include more than 10,000 square feet of canopy devoted to “mother” plants and separate clone storage; additional space has been identified for flowering plants. Within the two buildings, the nursery also contains research and development areas, rooms for cannabis waste and storage, record keeping and staging space, security offices, a conference room and additional designated locations required for permit approval and compliance.

LiveWire has spent significant resources to research and maneuver a complex legal environment and confirm the economic and environmental feasibility of potential LiveWire cannabis operations in different locations throughout the state of California. All LiveWire operations comply with California state law and local ordinances. To fully capitalize on these highly valuable assets, LiveWire is seeking funding to accelerate the development of its business plan.

GHC Ventures Subsidiary

GHC Ventures, LiveWire’s Coachella-based distribution division, employs a consumer-driven market approach that provides retailers access to a wide range of new high-end cannabis products, all serviced through the licensed and reliable GHC supply chain and distribution network.

GHC Ventures’ distribution network is available exclusively to licensed manufacturers that pass LiveWire’s stringent legal and environmental qualification process. This enables LiveWire to provide a large and solidly structured legal distribution network for all qualifying third-party operators in California. LiveWire is actively seeking to work with licensed operators who are enthusiastic and qualified to ensure the delivery of high-caliber and legal cannabis products for the fast-growing California medical and recreational cannabis markets.

Research Partnerships

LiveWire has established two independent research teams with world-renowned experts in their respective fields to pursue application of cannabis derivatives to specific targeted medical ailments. The company is also establishing research partnerships to explore the application of cannabinoid-based products to target specific ailments or conditions with large “sufferer” populations for both human and veterinarian applications. Possible applications may include dosing verification of zero-pesticide products for quality brands via its 7X Pure Cannabis Dosing and Verification System.

LiveWire has also engaged a highly qualified research team and advisory board to explore the opportunities in the unexplored yet highly valued equine space. The company has entered into consulting and/or advisory board agreements with high-caliber individuals from the medical and international-performance equine sector and is currently exploring strategic relationships with the veterinary departments of leading local and domestic universities and medical facilities.

7X Pure™ Dosing and Verification System

LiveWire Ergogenics is developing its “7X Pure Compliance and Dosage Verification System” intended to provide third-party verification of cannabis material origin, potency, purity, dosage and labeling, securing each product with a digital identity and clearly identifiable chain of custody.

The 7X Pure system will be completely secure, transparent and verifiable, protecting the confidentiality of growers’ and manufacturers’ intellectual property while providing retailers, consumers, government officials and others verification that the growers’ and manufacturers’ claims are true.

The system is designed as a parallel service to the seed-to-sale data provided by marijuana tracking software, will help growers and manufacturers meet increasing compliance requirements related to logistics, quality and transparency. It will also provide a high level of assurance to everyone from end users to municipalities.

Acquisitions & Operations

To maximize the utilization of its fully compliant locations and the licenses granted throughout California, LiveWire has begun and continues to pursue acquisitions of and/or strategic alliances with qualified cannabis companies and consultants. LiveWire will apply a strict regimen to the acquisition of operators, carefully utilizing its experience and legal standing in the California cannabis market for the selection of qualified operators.

Market Opportunity

Legal marijuana is the fastest-growing industry in the United States. Twenty-nine states have already legalized medical marijuana, eight states have approved it for recreational use, and more are following suit. Once the trend toward legalization expands to all 50 states, marijuana could become larger than the organic food industry, according to a new report obtained by The Huffington Post.

The U.S. marijuana industry is forecast to generate annual revenues ranging from $17 billion to $35 billion by 2021. The combined legal medical and recreational market has grown by roughly 30 percent, reaching $6 billion during 2017, according to The Marijuana Business Factbook. The same study projects the market will increase 300 percent to top $17 billion by 2021. During 2017 recreational sales grew by 80 percent, reaching $1.8 billion, not yet accounting for sales of the biggest revenue producer, California, which will only commence with recreational sales in 2018.

Business Model

LiveWire’s diligent approach to the cannabis sector is based on extensive environmental and legal research to predetermine the feasibility of the locations it selects for operations. The company pursues a carefully selected approach of acquiring, licensing and managing self-contained and permitted real estate properties for the development and distribution of its products and leasing to third party operators. LiveWire avoids the complications and high start-up cost of the typical large “growing” operations, instead focusing on becoming the market leader in research, cloning and verification, producing and distributing high quality brands.

Management Team

LiveWire’s team of experienced corporate managers and innovators are leading the company’s plans to capture increasing market share from different and often underserved market sectors in the cannabis industry. LiveWire intends to utilize its team’s experience to accelerate the development and/or acquisition of new properties, product offerings, and companies.

As early as five years ago, Hodson recognized the potential of CBD and became an early adopter of CBD as a health and wellness supplement by including hemp-derived cannabidiol in a starburst size edible product. His experience includes not only product development, marketing and sales, but most significantly constant city and county advocacy, guiding the company through four license processes, identifying and spearheading real estate acquisitions, and to assemble operations teams comprised of nursery horticulturists, cultivators and distribution personnel. His vision for the industry is complimented with his out-of-the-box thinking and anticipation of positioning for the future.

Kyle McKay, Horticulturist
Kyle McKay is responsible for managing LiveWire’s controlled cultivation environment, developing new-age genetics to produce consistent and high-quality products for medical patients, and applying his expertise in integrated pest management with Omri-certified fungicides and pesticides.

He also assists with location research and selection; cultivation center planning; operations set-up; and maximizing the growth potential of cannabis edibles, concentrates and oil production. McKay’s expertise in plant genetics and modern horticulture technology makes him extremely qualified to guide LiveWire’s efforts. During his 12-plus years in the cannabis horticulture field, he has grown more than 230 stable genetics, managed over 27 cultivation centers and grown the specific strains required to meet the needs of up to 45,000 medical cannabis patients at one time.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF).

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF) was featured today in a publication from HempWireNews, examining how the Farm Bill gave farmers all over the country the green light to grow industrial hemp under state and tribal programs, as long as the hemp met the federal requirements.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF) has developed and optimized proprietary technologies designed for biomass extraction, distillation and purification of ethanol and ethanol-based solvents used for the hemp biomass and cannabidiol (“CBD”) industry, as well as gas and liquid extraction. HTC’s extraction & purification systems are engineered to large-scale to reduce capital and operating costs while delivering superior performance measured by reduced energy usage, lowered emissions and improved quality of the product produced.

Advanced Extraction Technologies

For more than 14 years, HTC has developed and optimized proprietary technology and purification systems used for biomass, gas and liquid extraction. These technologies include:

  • LCDesign® – Low-cost design for modular gas, liquid and biomass extraction systems optimizes plant design, thus reducing capital and operating costs.
  • PDOEngine™ – Software-based design algorithms accurately model and simulate gas, liquid and biomass extraction processing.
  • Delta Solvents™ – Custom-designed, ethanol-based solvent mixtures and additives that optimize production and reduce costs. Technology development is being conducted at HTC’s sponsored research facilities at the University of Calgary.

Delta Purification® Technology

HTC’s patented Delta Purification® technology will purify, recycle and reuse the extraction ethanol used in the CBD extraction process while managing and reducing any CBD waste losses through the re-extraction of all wastes collected from the purified ethanol. Current and new technologies include:

  • Delta CBD Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol for use in CBD extraction from biomass. Reduces required heat to prevent damage of the chemical attributes of the CBD molecule, allowing extracted CBD to meet food-grade targets for human consumption.
  • Delta Solvent Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol-based solvents, such as single, mixed and formulated amines, for use in natural gas processing and post-combustion CO2 capturing processes.
  • Delta Glycol Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying glycols, such as mono-ethylene glycol and tri-ethylene glycol for use in natural gas dehydration processes.

Hemp Biomass and Tolling Contracts

HTC has entered into a hemp biomass tolling agreement for the 2019 crop year involving a supply of hemp biomass from a hemp grower in Saskatchewan, Canada. The hemp grower utilizes five varieties of Health Canada-approved cultivars as the genetic foundation. HTC will process and extract CBD FSO distillate from the hemp biomass. As a tolling fee payment, HTC will receive a percentage of the extracted CBD FSO distillate for its processing, extraction, purification and distillation services.

Additional hemp biomass tolling contracts with producers and hemp biomass providers are being negotiated in the U.S. for the 2020 hemp crop growing year. HTC will provide “local-to-grower” drying-to-biomass storage capability and transportation of dried biomass to an HTC, location to be determined, future US based, extraction facility. HTC is also in negotiation with a 60,000-acre, recognized Canadian farm leader, who is a significant hemp biomass producer, for a similar hemp biomass tolling contract.

re3™ Technology

Large users of ethanol and solvents for plant oil extraction demand reduced capital and operating costs. HTC’s re3™ (reclaim, recycle, reuse) technology can save up to 30% of the required fluid costs. The increasing cost of new extraction ethanol, combined with the cost of used ethanol disposal, creates a unique opportunity whereby the re3™ technology will create cost savings, while meeting environmental responsibilities.

The growth of ethanol and CO2 used in CBD production has created a new demand for reliable commercial scale ethanol reclaimer systems. The Delta Purification® ethanol system meets this new demand.

Sales and Offtake Agreements

HTC intends to leverage its relationship with its related entity, Purely Canada Foods™, to provide sales and distribution for its Ingredient CBD market under the brand of Purely Canada Hemp™, Purely Canada CBD™, Purely Canada Cannabinoids™. Purely Canada Hemp™ will develop risk managed multi-year ingredient supply contracts with its existing and new Global Food, Beverage and Animal Food Industry Customers.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO).

Zacks Small Cap Research, a division of Zacks Investment Research, has announced that they are maintaining their strong $4.44 share price target originally stated in their initial coverage of Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO), a leader in the sale and development of pressure-based consumables, instruments, and platform technology solutions to the global life sciences industry. PBIO’S unique and enabling pressure platform technologies can be used in many large and growing markets (e.g., food preservation, medical/lab applications, and, importantly, CBD oil water solubility).

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.

The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.

Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”

Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.

The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.

Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.

This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.

The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.95, off by 24.00%, on 58,170 volume with 49 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 11,607 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.600600004/$4.0300002.

OriginClear (OTC: OCLN)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight OriginClear (OTC: OCLN).

OriginClear Inc. (OTC: OCLN), a leading provider of water-treatment solutions, has released an impressive case study showing how a swine-manure, wastewater treatment system developed in Spain by its licensed partner Depuporc treats all types of manure without polluting ground water, thus allowing significant increases in animal production. The case study came on the heels of OriginClear’s watershed announcement that it would be marketing the Depuporc integrated manure system worldwide. Also today, InvestorBrandNetwork released a report on the company detailing how OCLN has partnered with its Spain-based licensee Depuporc S.L. to develop a comprehensive water-treatment system that continuously transforms pig manure into a zero-waste output of fertilizer and clean irrigation water (http://nnw.fm/1dM01). To view the full article, visit http://nnw.fm/q9O3c

OriginClear (OTC: OCLN) leads the self-reliant water revolution, deploying advanced technologies at the point of use, with modular, prefabricated systems that create durable assets and water independence for industry, commerce and agriculture.

Failing infrastructure and the rising cost of water are driving businesses to treat their own water. OriginClear leads this megatrend with on-premise systems enabling very high purification and recycling levels that centralized systems cannot achieve.

Systems installed at the point of use become productive assets for businesses that also increase property values. And OriginClear helps corporations improve their environmental, social and governance (ESG) standings with world-class water management.

Operations & Markets

OriginClear leads a new generation of water companies that focus on meeting the needs of businesses looking for compact, advanced technologies that can be shipped to and installed at the point of use. The company manufactures and distributes its professional-grade water treatment and conveyance products to commercial and industrial properties, fielding both direct and indirect sales channels to reach end-market clients such as hotels and resorts, real estate housing developments, office buildings, military installations, schools, farms, food and beverage manufacturers, industrial warehouse, oil and gas producers, and medical and pharmaceutical facilities.

From its Texas-based factory, OriginClear designs and prefabricates an entire line of plug-n-play containerized units called Modular Water Systems™ that enable water purification, recycling and wastewater management.


Industrial Pretreatment Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) designed by Daniel M. Early, using reinforced thermoplastic modules.

These onsite modular products provide clients with water independence through ownership and operational control over water quality, enabling them to increase productivity while reducing environmental, health and safety risks from pollution, contamination and corrosion. Modular water products are trusted to balance performance with cost-effectiveness, enabling business users to go well beyond municipal standards for water quality, therefore achieving high levels of satisfaction for their own customers, and improved sustainability for their properties.

OriginClear’s water treatment equipment can boost real estate asset value as a fundamental capital improvement, combined with long-lasting water savings for the corporate bottom line.

Product Portfolio

OriginClear groups its products into three main categories:

  1. Water Treatment: achieving high grade purification.
  2. Water Conveyance: water transportation and pumping.
  3. Advanced Technologies: commercialization of innovative technologies.

OriginClear’s complete line of compact, on-site, point-of-use products include: advanced purification systems that are skid, rack-mounted and containerized for reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, media filtration, disinfection, water softening, ion exchange and electrodeionization (EDI), combined as needed in small to medium commercial and industrial applications, and custom-build projects. Water conveyance products include pump and lifting stations, modular storage tanks, and control monitoring panels.

OriginClear’s line of modular water products and systems is key to the self-reliant water treatment revolution as they create “instant infrastructure” – fully engineered, prefabricated and prepackaged systems that use durable, sophisticated materials. The units are available in standard capacities for onsite closed-loop systems at commercial business locations.

The company’s rugged wastewater treatment plants, highly reliable pump stations, and premium water purification units typically offer 25 percent lower initial costs over conventional systems, with greater quality and full connectivity. These pump stations and wastewater treatment products utilize high density thermo-plastics (HDPE) and proprietary, innovative prefabrication methods and materials that deliver the longest life and strongest products.

Breakthrough Technologies

OriginClear has a long history of innovation through its OriginClear Technologies division, which is responsible for identifying leading-edge technologies to solve today’s toughest challenges. These advanced technologies are the centerpiece of the division’s international licensee network. The technologies are developed in OriginClear Technologies, and licensees integrate them into their own products.

Electro Water Separation™ (EWS) and Advanced Oxidation (AOx™) are the principal, well-proven technologies.

EWS is OriginClear’s breakthrough water cleanup technology which utilizes a catalytic process to concentrate and eliminate suspended solids in the worst commercial and industrial wastewater.

AOx is OriginClear’s proprietary advanced oxidation technology which generates a dense cloud of ozone, hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl radicals, dramatically reducing or eliminating dissolved organic microtoxins, including bacteria and viruses, hormones, drugs, pesticides such as Roundup, and synthetics. AOx has also been shown to effectively reduce harmful chemicals such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide – the “rotten egg” smell in crude oil that reduces its value.

Through international licensing and partnerships, OriginClear’s advanced technologies are being adopted to treat tough water problems in East and South Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and North America.

Market Opportunity

In just 10 years, the global water services market has doubled into a trillion-dollar industry, driven by improper sanitation and water scarcity. Only 20 percent of all sewage and only 30 percent of all industrial waste are ever treated. Additionally, water leakage results in the loss of 35 percent of all clean water across the planet; reducing that percentage by half would provide clean water for 100 million people. This is a situation of great danger, but also great potential.

The statistics demonstrate that we can no longer rely on the efficiencies of giant, centralized water utilities to meet these challenges. An increasing number of businesses are starting to take notice, instead conducting their own water treatment and recycling. Whether by choice or out of necessity, those businesses that do invest in onsite water systems get a tangible asset on their business and real estate, and can enjoy better water quality at a lower cost.

Out of the public’s eye and with OriginClear’s help, a growing number of self-reliant businesses are building Decentralized Water Wealth™ for themselves while also helping their community. They know that environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing guidelines, which represent $22 trillion of assets under management around the world, specifically note the key indicator of how well corporations manage their water.


10,000 Gallon per Day Industrial Membrane Bioreactor Waste Water Treatment Plant designed by Daniel M. Early, PE, using long-lived Structural Reinforced ThermoPlastic (SRTP)

OriginClear is a key enabler of ESG water management for corporations that are increasingly responsible for what was once delegated to central utilities. For example, when a corporation manages its own water, and uses OriginClear’s proprietary hybrid treatment methods, it can significantly reduce both water use and nutrient footprints (carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus) in one compact package.

These hybrid processes feature advanced blackwater treatment with advanced clean water processing. They can convert toxic nutrients to less harmful compounds, and even capture them for beneficial reuse purposes, as shown in OriginClear’s recent case study.

Revenue Growth through Synergy

Since OriginClear acquired it in 2015, Progressive Water Treatment has generated steady revenues in the range of a million dollars a quarter. It is now the Fabrication and Manufacturing Division for the whole company. The team at Modular Water Systems, headed by Chief Engineer Daniel M. Early, is responsible for overall design and high-level engineering. It relies on the Fabrication and Manufacturing Division to add incremental revenue for its modular product line, without requiring large increases in personnel.

OriginClear believes that these two business units can develop growing revenues through synergy and ultimately help achieve overall profitability. OriginClear also seeks to acquire profitable water companies that can complement the synergy of its existing units and accelerate both revenues and profitability. However, acquisitions are neither guaranteed, nor essential to OriginClear’s continued growth.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Green Organic Dutchman (OTC: TGODF).

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF) was featured today in a publication from CBDWire, examining how the sector has been plagued by one issue: quality control. As many have put it, the hemp/CBD industry rapidly outpaced regulatory authorities, resulting in a market filled with substandard and contaminated products.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).

Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.

TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.

Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.

Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.

The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.

The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.

TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.

Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.

Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.

TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA).

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. This year has seen several advancements for the marijuana cause, with a bevy of positive legislative changes passed. Let’s look at some of the highlights of the year.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.

The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.

The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.

The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors. The Company’s business model includes producing a diverse portfolio of synergistic business segments that provide value to its shareholders. Its vertically integrated business model and distribution platforms are positioned to capture market share by developing recognizable and valuable brands.

Under the MCOA umbrella, wholly owned subsidiary hempSMART™, Inc. is committed to bringing high quality CBD-based products to the market through its affiliate marketing program. Through hempSMART, MCOA’s strategic approach to the distribution of products is through a networking architecture geared to maintain customer loyalty and capture market share. The patent-pending product “hempSMART Brain,” is designed to revolutionize the safe and effective support of healthy brain function. The brand new product, HempSMART DROPS, is a full-spectrum CBD tincture formulated with hemp and fractionated coconut oils. The hempSMART marketing team has decades of experience, and is well positioned to take the hempSMART brand to a global audience.

Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: FRSX) (TASE: FRSX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (FRSX).

Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: FRSX) (TASE: FRSX), founded in 2015 and headquartered in Israel, is a technological innovator in automotive vision systems and driver assistance technology. Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Foresight Automotive Ltd., Foresight is engaged in the design, development and commercialization of stereo/quad-camera vision systems and V2X cellular-based solutions for the automotive industry based on 3D video analysis, advanced algorithms for image processing and sensor fusion. The company’s powerful and patented stereoscopic technology is derived from field-proven technology that has been deployed throughout the world for almost two decades.

Foresight’s innovative autonomous driving solutions are based on mature, proprietary stereoscopic image technology that uses two synchronized cameras to mimic human depth perception and produce a three-dimensional image. This 3D image can anticipate possible collisions with other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and other obstacles. The technology provides highly accurate real-time alerts about the vehicle’s surroundings while in motion. The systems are designed to improve driving safety by enabling highly accurate and reliable threat detection while ensuring the lowest rates of false alerts.

The company’s patents provide IP protection for its robust and proven proprietary stereoscopic technology, which was developed using the security technology of Foresight’s major shareholder, Magna B.S.P.

Foresight has developed three main products:

  • QuadSight™. This breakthrough detection system sets the bar for autonomous vehicle vision. It features nearly 100 percent obstacle detection with almost zero false alerts and operates optimally under all weather and lighting conditions, including darkness, rain, fog, haze and glare. QuadSight™ is the first quad-camera multi-spectral vision solution of its kind, driven by advanced and proven image processing algorithms. The system consists of two sets of stereoscopic infra-red and visible-light cameras that enable highly accurate and reliable obstacle detection for seamless 24/7 vision.
  • Eyes-On™. This solution uses advanced algorithms for accurate depth analysis and obstacle detection to provide a unique stereo vision Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). It can detect all potential obstacles regardless of shape, form or material, including other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and animals. It has an accuracy and reliability of almost 100 percent and near zero false alerts.
  • Eye-Net™. This is a cellular-based accident prevention solution that is designed to provide real-time pre-collision alerts to vehicles and pedestrians. This proprietary system is deployed on smartphones and cloud-based servers operating on existing cellular networks, and it eliminates the need for additional designated hardware. Eye-Net™ is designed to provide a complementary layer of protection to advanced driver assistance systems and extends this protection to road users who are not in direct line of sight. It is optimally designed for both urban environments and high-speed scenarios to provide protection for the most vulnerable road users. On March 28, 2018, Foresight announced that it had completed a successful feasibility study of its Eye-Net™ accident prevention solution involving 120 users of Android and iOS cell phones located across Israel.

In 2017, Foresight sought more opportunities within the international market. The Company signed pilot agreements with three leading car manufacturers in China and completed pilot projects meeting all pre-defined requirements and criteria. In addition, FRSX completed a pilot project with Uniti Sweden.

Studies by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety continue to emphasize the dramatic reduction in accidents and injury-related crashes reported when vehicles are equipped with collision avoidance systems. A recent study by the Institute states that the rate of single-vehicle, sideswipe and head-on crashes was 11 percent lower in vehicles with the warning systems. More importantly, the study shows collision avoidance technology cut the rates of injury crashes of the same type by 21 percent.

Foresight Autonomous Holdings, Inc. also holds a 32 percent interest in RailVision, a company that develops advanced systems for railway safety and maintenance. RailVision has successfully completed 13 tests in Israel, Germany, Italy and Switzerland in addition to a real-time system test with a European railway operator.
