About us

Our beginnings

Proton began as a conversation between leading academic researchers at University of Calgary, and a young Canadian oil and gas company.

 

Both parties were seeking to redefine the energy sector through the application of game-changing technologies.

Proton's patented technology

Proton’s Operations Offices were set up in 2015, in Calgary Canada.

A hand-picked team was assembled to conduct research and trials.  Land was acquired, and a Provisional Patent was submitted.

Proton’s International Office was established in 2016.

A hygenerator was designed, fabricated and tested in a University Lab.  The patent was refined and finalized.

Patented Technology

The timing was right

A reduced price for oil and gas, and a new climate change treaty, made it possible to quickly assemble a very skilled team and a global support network.

And the location was right

Canada is a stable, democratic country with an open vibrant economy. It is home to a third of the world’s hydrocarbons, and the largest bitumen reserves in the world.

Canadian experts lead the world in down-hole combustion and integrated reservoir management.  The challenge is to use these extensive human and mineral resources, and the massive built infrastructure, as a bridge to a clean and green energy economy.

Who can lead the effort?

An industry champion seemed essential!  Thus the first big step in developing Hygenic Earth Energy was to create Proton Technologies – a new business dedicated to proving, patenting and commercializing the new technology.

WHAT IS THE CORPORATE STRUCTURE?

Proton has established an international office for the sole purpose of enhancing and protecting the Intellectual Property that underlies Hygenic Earth Energy. The I.P includes a succession of patents, along with trade secrets and new science.

Because the I.P. is owned by a separate corporation without any field operations and assets, the IP remains secure and well defended, world wide. In regions where HEE is of interest, a regional Affiliate can be established. Canada is the first regional Affiliate.

Each regional affiliate will be majority locally-owned, and will have perpetual exclusive rights to use and license HEE technology within the regional boundaries. All I.P. produced by Affiliates will be transferred to Proton International, and shared with other regions.

Each Affiliate will initiate and support a Regional Centre of Excellence (RCE). The RCE will be an ‘open tent’, welcoming participation by all sectors. One role for the RCE is to conduct research on land and infrastructure, and to incorporate HEE into the regional energy road map. All RCEs will periodically sponsor regional round-tables and think-tank sessions.

RCEs may also periodically host an Iconoclast Symposium for transferring knowledge, planning research projects, and exploring key questions.

HOW WILL PROTON EXERCISE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY?

Proton receives support from governments and academia, and from green investors. In turn, we must also find ways to use our technology and our knowledge to serve the larger community.

To this end we are dedicating a percentage of Proton revenue to a program called HydroActive.

HydroActive is a no-strings grant program designed to support application of HEE in special-needs locations, including urban regions suffering from severe air quality problems, and urban regions where energy costs and emissions are especially high.
