Phoenix Canada Oil Extends International Patent Filings on Hydrogen Gas Generation Technology

    TORONTO, Sept. 14 /CNW/ - Phoenix Canada Oil Company (TSXV : PCO & OTC BB
: PHXCF) reports that new patent filings, deriving from the recent issue of
U.S. Patent No. 7,122,171, have been completed under International Patent
Cooperation Treaty (PCT) rules. Under the Technology License Agreement with a
major U.S. research university, held by its U.S. unit, Phoenix International
Energy Inc., Phoenix holds exclusive worldwide rights to the proprietary
technology for a period of twenty years beyond the initial 17-year patent
    Phoenix said that the U. S. patent was the primary milestone that
established its leading position in the developing hydrogen economy. Phoenix
claims that the U.S. patent validates its proprietary "foundation" technology
covering the solar light-powered generation of low cost, pure hydrogen gas
from a common water feedstock. The patent also provides a strong measure of
confidence that no competitive "prior art" that conflicts with the Company's
innovative hydrogen technology was determined in the examination process.
    The PCT filing procedure is being extended to Canada, the European Union,
Australia and India. The Indian filing is considered of special economic
interest due to the sub-continent's rapidly expanding economy which remains
dependent on geologically limited energy resources. India's patent law system
is patterned on established English and U.S. common law practice that clearly
recognizes and protects intellectual property rights.
    The patented Phoenix hydrogen generation technology employs practically
the full spectrum of solar light energy to catalytically produce virtually
inexhaustible hydrogen gas resources of pristine energy from an ordinary water
feedstock. Hydrogen's combustion products consist exclusively of heat and
water vapor. The elimination of greenhouse gas emissions and global warming
effects will ensure longer term environmental stability.
