Suja Minerals Executes a MOA to Acquire 100% of Global Energy Innovations Inc. and Will Change Name to GEI Global Energy Corp.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(Marketwired - July 25, 2013) - SUJA MINERALS CORP (OTCQB:SJML) announced today the execution of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOA) with GLOBAL ENERGY INNOVATIONS, INC. (GEI) and their fuel cell systems technology. The terms of the MOA state that the parties will execute a definitive agreement on or before July 31, 2013.

GLOBAL ENERGY INNOVATIONS INC., in cooperation with governments and industry around the world, will provide GEI's unique technology for scalable, green fuel cell power plants. A multi-trillion dollar market is available and GEI intends to be a world leader in providing clean, inexpensive energy. GEI's commercial potential is essentially unlimited. By becoming public and raising the necessary capital, GEI will be able to aggressively expand into the worldwide market for clean and inexpensive energy (www.geiglobal.com).

The GEI X5 is different; it is a "hybrid" fuel cell power system that incorporates a high temperature PEM (Polymer Exchange Membrane) fuel cell and a high-density energy storage system. Because batteries and ultra-caps are excellent at satisfying high instant power demands, as such GEI fuel cell power systems can be sized to meet nominal power requirements and can be integrated with solar and wind projects to achieve maximum efficiency.

Matt Reams, President and CEO of SUJA MINERALS CORP, stated, "The GEI commercial potential is unlimited and will focus much of their attention on the large scale power utilities worldwide as it has the ability to become both a technology game changer and a market leader."

Fuel cells are a highly efficient, combustion-less, reliable, and virtually pollution-free energy source that provide electricity to power a wide array of applications, including buildings (manufacturing facilities, hotels and hospitals), primary power for grid integration, automobiles, emergency back-up systems, and base load grid power. A fuel cell uses fuel - usually hydrogen, extracted from common fuels such as natural gas, and oxygen - to produce electricity. In principle, a fuel cell is an electrochemical device that operates like a battery. However, unlike a battery, a fuel cell requires re-fueling and not recharging. Fuel cells will continue to produce electricity and heat as long as there is a constant fuel source. Hydrogen fuel cells work simply, have no moving parts, and operate silently, with water and excess heat as their only by-products. Fuel cells thus provide the ideal solution for a myriad of portable, on-board and stationary electric power generation applications.

Matt Reams, President and CEO of SUJA MINERALS CORP, stated, "Due to the ongoing difficulty with trying to secure the necessary capital for junior exploration in North America the Company has decided to proceed in a new business direction. I am extremely excited and impressed with the novel GEI technology and the real potential to finally meet the ever-expanding global need for clean and sustainable energy with near zero emissions.

"We believe that Dr. K. J. Berry, P.E. and the GLOBAL ENERGY INNOVATION team have developed a very exciting fuel cell technology, which is further combined with a superior business strategy and global vision that will accelerate commercialization of this technology worldwide to support and resolve the future demand and power limitations the world is currently experiencing. As such we will change our name from SUJA MINERALS CORP to GEI GLOBAL ENERGY CORP., to leverage this multi-trillion dollar global energy opportunity." Dr. K. J. Berry will continue to provide high-impact leadership as Chairman, CEO, and President of GEI Global Energy Corp.

Dr. Berry, honored as Flint, Michigan's fuel cell father(1) , has been Professor of Mechanical Engineering for over 26 years at Kettering University, and served as the former Head of Mechanical Engineering for 17 years. With over 1200 students mechanical engineering is ranked as one of the largest undergraduate programs in the country, and has been constantly ranked in the top 5 by U.S. News and World Report.

Dr. Berry, honored as an ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) Fellow, also spearheaded, conceived, and raised over $10 million in funding for Kettering's Center for Fuel Cell Systems Engineering's (www.kufuelcellcenter.info) research initiatives. Recognizing the lack of an infrastructure for the storage and distribution of hydrogen as a "fuel," as required for traditional fuel cells, as being a major barrier to global fuel cell commercialization, Dr. Berry's vision was a more robust fuel cell power plant system to leverage the existing global logistic fuel infrastructure such as abundant and inexpensive natural gas. The result being the GEI X5 as a novel and revolutionary hybrid fuel cell power systems architecture.

Berry says, "Our vision is to be the world leader for innovation in fuel cell systems engineering, and for developing products and strategies that improve the social and economic quality of life for millions." We believe this vision is achievable due to our "Blue Ocean" strategy supporting common fuel cell power systems that are scalable, customer-centric and applicable across multiple industry sectors.

The GEI fuel cell systems can operate on a number of fuel sources such as natural gas, ethanol, propane and biofuels. Since GEI's fuel cells can leverage the existing logistic fuel infrastructure, this makes the Company very unique in the industry. Fuel sources such as natural gas are cheap and abundant worldwide; this will enable GEI to be very competitive. Since the GEI X5 "brand" fuel cell system is scalable and stackable, it enables the Company to become a market leader in every category of the fuel cell Industry and has the potential to create new categories. GEI can build fuel cells ranging from 2 kW - 100 kW and since the Company has the ability of stacking the fuel cells like building blocks it can build fuel cell power plants that are multi-megawatt in size. The GEI commercial potential is unlimited and will focus much of their attention on the large scale power utilities worldwide as it has the ability to become both a technology game changer and a market leader.

The GEI fuel cell system provides 24-7 primary power for homes and buildings and is paramount due to very restrictive offerings from other companies with only back-up power (due to fuel restrictions) or power to one singular application (due to technology restrictions). The GEI X5 core strategy is to avoid providing a "niche" technology for a "niche" application, but rather provide a robust and scalable systems technology applicable across multiple platforms that allow high volume cost reductions and savings in design and manufacturing cost. There are currently 3 patents that protect this technology and the Company plans for several more to be filed before the end of 2013.

ABOUT GEI: GLOBAL ENERGY INNOVATIONS INC. was founded in 2007 and is part of the fuel cell and sustainable/alternative energy industry. Global Energy spent the last 7 years testing the product and has had running prototypes with all data for over 3 years. (www.geiglobal.com)

There also exists the option to integrate the GEI X5 "hybrid" fuel cell power systems technology with an auxiliary solar/wind grid. In this operational mode, the GEI fuel cell system is designed to integrate seamlessly with other alternative energy systems such as solar and wind and would reduce the use of natural gas and concurrently allows the solar array to provide steady continuous power, depending upon environmental conditions and the size of the solar grid. This is known as solar balancing. The combined solar/fuel cell system would operate 24-7 and represents the optimum in power generation efficiency for both solar and fuel cell systems. As such, solar companies have expressed interest in exclusive global license opportunities.

Dr. Berry continued to say, "In July of 2013 we secured a manufacturing facility in Flint, Michigan, USA. We intend on ramping up production so we can start to ship product before the end of 2013. We are in the process of a manufacturing roll out process, which will include ordering and assembling necessary equipment to deliver the GEI X5 fuel cell power system by the end of the year.

"Our new company, GEI GLOBAL ENERGY CORP., and our brand, the GEI X5, represent a revolutionary and smart, multi-fuel, clean, silent, and affordable fuel cell auxiliary electric power generation system for residential, commercial, military, and industrial electric applications. Our unique scalable modular technology allows power systems from a few kW to several hundred MW. Our power systems employ a superior technology that conserves Earth's natural resources, improves people's quality of life, and assures energy security." (www.geiglobal.com)

Global Energy Innovations' (GEI) Fuel Cell Auxillary Power Unit is a one of a kind unit that is a flexible system that can be used for a broad range of applications due to its unique high temperature fuel cell stack, adaptable power electronics, and logistic fuel processor.  GEI's Smart Fuel Cell is the ultimate solution for the following applications.

Commercial Trucking

Commercial trucking APU power needs are increasing as better amenities are being added to sleeper cabins by the truck manufacturers to provide comfortable and sometimes luxurious interiors. Current APU power needs are approximately 2 to 6 kWe and are projected to go higher. Meeting this power demand through truck idling results in a significant cost estimated to be $5,700/truck/year with significant environmental emissions. Argonne National Laboratory estimates that 480,000 class 8 trucks alone generate 120 million pounds of NO, 202 million pounds of CO, and 9.6 million tons of CO2 annually; they also generate about 5.5 million pounds of particulate matter.

Current APU technologies to replace truck idling are based on diesel engine power generators, which, though better than truck idling, still possess a range of problems, including low efficiency and high noise and emissions.

We believe that fuel cell (FC)-based APU technologies are ideally suited for use in truck APUs because of their inherent benefits.

Telecommunications

Today’s telecommunications networks demand backup power solutions that provide highly reliable, cost-effective power for extended periods of time. As such the availability and reliability of backup power sources are a major concern not only in the United States, but also globally. With over 220,000 cell sites nationally and increasing cell and internet traffic, weather conditions and a fragile power infrastructure have caused blackouts across the country, and making customers and service providers look for backup power solutions that offer durability and flexibility at a reasonable cost. More recently, the realization that our power generation and distribution system may be vulnerable to interruptions due to terrorist and natural disasters has increased this need significantly. Why Traditional Solutions Won't Work  power use may not translate directly, or even easily, into stationary applications. Even on the automotive front, several key issues remain to be resolved, among them load response and the need for intelligent systems to charge and maintain the batteries. One other disadvantage may prove troublesome for wireless networks as well: lithium's high flammability. The risk of fire only adds to liability concerns and replacement costs. eight hours or less of backup power time, lower power needs, and where convenient access to hydrogen refueling is available. Six bottles of hydrogen provide eight hours of backup power for a 5 kW load. However, in situations requiring extended backup power times, higher power needs or in situations where hydrogen delivery is difficult or impossible, compressed hydrogen is a challenge. For example, 36 hydrogen cylinders are required to provide 48 hours of backup power for a 5 kW load. are required. In situations where hydrogen storage is difficult due to space and weight restrictions, liquid fuel combined with a fuel reformer is the most economical solution. Additionally, at remote installation locations such as telecommunications tower sites, hydrogen can prove to be difficult, bulky and heavy to store, and maintenance to re-supply industrial hydrogen cylinders in these remotes sites is not feasible. Reforming technologies and fuel cell products that incorporate reformers exist today that eliminate these obstacles and pave the way for even broader network applications.  According to a national U.S. survey commissioned by Emerson4, power outages resulting in downtime are common.

Military

The U.S. Army is transforming itself into a globally deployable force. The new force will need to operate with a smaller, more deployable logistics support system. Because much of the present logistics support systems exist to move fuel, improved battlefield fuel economy will help reduce logistics support requirements. These forces need new lightweight, fuel-efficient, air transportable equipment, with light, efficient logistics support systems.

 To offset the obvious reductions in armor and heavy weapons in this new force, new vehicles are being developed as part of the Future Combat Systems (FCS). The FCS is not a single vehicle or vehicle family, but rather a system of systems designed to use lighter weapons and faster vehicles more effectively to achieve the results of heavier forces. Two of the keys to this increased effectiveness are reducing the forces’ dependence on a heavy logistics support system and the development of an integrated battlefield data-sharing environment for U.S. forces, called “battlefield digitization.”

 Battlefield digitization has created new vehicle electric power demands. To be effective, digitization equipment must operate essentially all the time. A digitization suite includes items such as computers, digital radios, encryption systems, displays, identification friend-or-foe (IFF) and Global Positioning System (GPS) devices, with a combined power demand typically around one-kilowatt (kW), or 36 amps (A) on a military vehicle 28-volt system. This demand, when added to the power needed for personnel heaters, battery charging, sighting and detection equipment, often exceeds vehicle alternator capacities. The situation is made worse by the need for long waiting, or “silent watch” periods, during military operations in which a vehicle crew must minimize noise, thermal and other emissions for scouting or ambush. This effectively rules out running an engine.
