Surna Inc. (OTC: SRNA) said it has filed a provisional patent application covering enhancements to its proprietary Climate Control Systems and Methods used in indoor gardens.
The patent covers an industrial process that provides electricity, heating and cooling while utilizing the resulting carbon-dioxide generated as a nutrient for the plants. Surna plans to incorporate this and other proprietary technology into a new, commercial-grade power-generating and environmental control system product.
The PolyGen System is being designed to provide a near zero waste energy alternative for the cannabis industry, which currently relies heavily on local energy providers for its energy intensive growing needs. Surna´s PolyGen System also provides an alternative where either the cost, or availability, of electric power is an issue. It will enable growers to power their facilities using natural gas fired generators in order to create electricity, and provide heating and cooling, as a far cleaner and cheaper alternative to diesel generators.
Surna´s mission is to acquire intellectual property and scalable operating companies in the nascent, legal marijuana industry with a focus on disruptive technology, equipment and related support services (www.surna.com). Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Hydro Innovations, the company offers a comprehensive line of commercial and small business indoor agriculture equipment (http://www.hydroinnovations.com/).
