LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – Harmonic Energy Inc. (OTCQB:ASUV) (OTCBB:ASUV) is a company focused on tire manufacturing and recycling, using an innovative approach to energy efficiency and sustainability. Harmonic is pleased to announce that it has acquired an advanced Carbonization technology license from Kouei International. This acquisition gives Harmonic the exclusive rights to North America and Europe for technologies from Kouei Industries.
Kouei Industries is a Japanese engineering company that specializes in thermal degradation and has over 30 years of proven success. Kouei Industries Carbonization facilities currently produce “green” diesel, high tension steel and premium carbon black, all from scrap tires. Kouei Industries has constructed many commercialized tire carbonization facilities for the recovery of high grade commodities from waste/scrap tires.
Kouei Industries has partnered with Mitsubishi and Mitsui Bussan to commercialize the production of high grade nanocarbons for use in advanced scientific applications for manufacturing electronics, computer chips, new polymers and specialized military equipment applications.
For decades tires have been subsidized by government programs which have led to tires being stockpiled or illegally dumped after collection of the disposal fees, causing serious environmental damage with an abundance of tire fires across the globe.
Harmonic’s new technology acquisition allows tires to be fully recovered into mainstream commodities that fit today’s existing supply chain while substantially reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The carbon dioxide reduction is estimated based on the reduced emissions released in to the atmosphere when compared to current traditional methods of carbon black production by burning oil or natural gas as the primary feedstock for commercial grade carbon blacks.

About Harmonic Energy Inc.
Harmonic Energy Inc. is a company that focuses on a comprehensive solution to the disposition of scrap tires worldwide. Harmonic plans include the utilization of proven technologies that ensure each scrap tire is either remanufactured and put back on the road as a new tire or is completely recycled and reduced into marketable chemical commodity products. Both the tire remanufacturing and carbonization technologies that will be utilized by Harmonic must be commercially proven and have viable operating facilities not bound by subsidies.
Harmonic plans to be the first company to integrate these two technologies to provide a comprehensive ‘closed-loop’ solution for the management of scrap tires. By design, Harmonic plans to offer a solution that replicates nature’s intentions by developing symbiosis between waste, energy supply and sustainable growth.
