Free Energy International Inc. installs first Thermal Superconductor snow and ice melting system

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 5 /CNW/ - Free Energy International Inc. TSXV : FFX
("Free Energy" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the Vancouver area's
first installation of the Free Energy Snow and Ice melting system which was
completed Friday at the newly constructed warehouse owned by Refrigerative
Supply Ltd. ("RSL") on North Fraser Way in Burnaby. The driveway is 16 feet
wide by 45 feet long and is used for shipping and receiving. RSL owner Peter
Gibbs was concerned about safety for the truck drivers for the hundreds of
deliveries that are made to his facility every winter and decided to install
the Free Energy Snow and Ice melt system in the busiest loading dock area.
    The cost of installing the Free Energy snow melt rods is comparable to
installing electric heat trace and there is never an energy bill for the
operation of the snow melt rods. The saving per year on energy usage is
estimated at between $2500 and $ 3000 per year and the increase in the safety
is immeasurable.
    Refrigerative Supply Ltd. has been operating in Vancouver for over 50
years and is a family owned business.
    The system requires a series of L-shaped rods containing the non-toxic
super conducting material to be placed vertically to a depth of 30 to 35 feet
below the surface to tap into the constant mild temperatures below and bring
heat continuously to the surface.
    The natural heat will protect a driveway or sidewalk in temperatures down
to minus 10 Centigrade. Below this temperature, optional self-contained
low-wattage heating elements switch on to provide any necessary additional
