LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(Marketwired - Aug. 15, 2013) - SUJA MINERALS CORP (OTCQB:SJML) announced today the closing of the definitive agreement with GLOBAL ENERGY INNOVATIONS, INC. (GEI) http://www.geiglobal.com. The terms of the definitive agreement were agreed upon and the execution of the agreement was signed between, SUJA MINERALS CORP and (GEI) GLOBAL ENERGY INNOVATIONS, INC. SUJA MINERALS CORP will file for a Company name change and symbol change to reflect its new business direction.

Matt Reams, President and CEO of SUJA MINERALS CORP, stated, "I am very excited to announce the execution of the definitive agreement between SUJA MINERALS and GEI GLOBAL ENERGY INNOVATIONS, INC. There is a tremendous opportunity to manufacture and market the GEI Fuel Cell systems worldwide."

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).

Dr. K. J. Berry, Chairman, CEO, and President of GEI GLOBAL, stated, "Every since we secured our Flint, Michigan manufacturing facility in July 2013, our staff continues to work diligently to complete initial production systems for initial customers in Italy, India, and the United States. We remain excited with the potential for the rapid expansion and acceptance for the GEI X5 advanced fuel cell power systems technology for world markets thirsty for fuel efficient, clean, and scalable energy solutions. The public offering of GEI GLOBAL ENERGY CORP will certainly provide the financial resources required for the commercialization of our power generation technology for world markets and governments seeking to leverage the availability of affordable natural gas and renewable bio-methane fuels worldwide."

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.

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.

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.

ABOUT SUJA MINERALS CORP: SUJA MINERALS CORP (OTCQB:SJML), an exploration stage company, focuses on acquiring and exploring mineral properties. The company intends to explore for dolomite and limestone. It owns an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Crawford Creek property consisting of 1 mineral claim with an area of approximately 460 acres (208.93 hectares) located in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. The company was founded in 2010 and is based in Las Vegas, Nevada.

GEI HIGH TEMPERATURE PEM MEMBRANES AND FUEL CELL STACKSgei_5-cell_stack-2

GEI fuel cell stacks employ high temperature PEM fuel cell membrane assemblies operating at 160C-180C rather than low temperature PEM membranes that traditionally operate at 70C-80C. Our membrane assemblies (MEA), supplied by BASF, are integrated into our proprietary fuel cells stack design and are denoted as the Celtec®-P 1000 MEA. Celtec®-P MEAs are based on the high temperature resistant polymer polybenzimidazole (PBI) acid electrolyte. Today, although PBI is mainly used for fire protection fabrics, Celtec®-P MEA is the basis for a new generation of high temperature PEM fuel cells which are more cost-effective, efficient and reliable than conventional low temperature fuel cell systems with the following features:

• Operation at temperatures between 120 and 180 °C
• No water management necessary
• High tolerance of CO (Carbon Monoxide)
• High tolerance of H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide)
• Excellent long-term stability
• Operational robustness

 

More performance and durability information regarding the high temperature BASF MEA can be located at: http://www2.pemeas.de/home.asp. Due to the HT-PEM high tolerance to CO and H2S, fuel processing of liquid carbon based fuels become very cost effective. It has been shown that low temperature fuel cells require CO concentrations less than 0.001% or 10 PPM (parts per million), while high temperature fuel cells are more tolerate, i.e. 3%-5% or 50,000 PPM. Additionally, low temperature PEM fuel cells require H2S concentrations less than 100 PPB (parts per billion) while high temperature fuel cells require H2S concentrations less than 10 PPM or 100 times more tolerate.

DOE Durability Targets
Additionally, BASF membrane durability testing (www2.pemeas.de) confirms a low degradation rate of 6.0x10-6 Volts/Hr per cell after 18,000 hours operating on pure H2 (or decrease in fuel cell stack efficiency of 20%). Assuming a beginning-of-life cell stack efficiency of 60%, the predicted end-of-life stack efficiency is 40% for a 2kW 24 cell stack after 40,000 hours of operation. While this preliminary "rough" scenario would seem to meet the DOE project objective, predicted operation with reformed fuels will be lower by approximately 5%. However, GEI is working with supplier BASF to evaluate its latest membrane development, i.e. CELTEC P-2000, which has improved transient performance for start/stop operations and improved long-term high temperature durability. The expected fuel cell efficiency degradation over 40,000 hours is 10% or implying a beginning of life efficiency requirement of 50% to meet the DOE end of life target of 40%.

GEI Balance-of-Plant and Integrated Controls
In addition to fuel impurity tolerance, high temperature PEM (HT-PEM) fuel cell membranes do not require humidity of inlet gases as for low temperature (LT-PEM) fuel cells. As such, the overall "system" efficiency is higher with fewer components and simpler controls and more reliable operations. The GEI power system couples both the reformer and high temperature fuel cell stack into an integrated unit. The excess fuel cell stack coolant heat is used to pre-heat the water for the steam reformer, and the stack cathodeair inlet. The unused hydrogen and anodeexhaust CO and CO2 is burned within a tail gas burner and supplies heat for the reformer which reduces the diesel fuel required within the reformer to maintain the catalysts bed temperature. Finally, the anode exhaust water is condensed and used within the reformer to minimize the external make-up water required. This integrated infrastructure design leverages the high-gradeheat attributes of high-temperature PEM fuel cell stacks. As such the overall system is cost effective, compact, thermally efficient and provides high grade heat for combined heat and power applications.

GEI High-Temperature World Fuel Cell Stack
GEI'spatented high temperature fuel cell stack design has flow field channel designs optimized for reformed fuels and incorporates a robust manifold design scalable from 2kw-10kw. This allows a single design for a wide of range of power requirements without re-occurring engineering design cost and provides the scalability necessary for large volume commercialization to reduce manufacturing cost.

Below are IV curves for GEI's 500W HT-PEM fuel cell stack operating on a mixture of 2% and 5% CO/H2 fuel to simulate performance on reformed fuels. Note when operating on 2% CO there is a 4% reduction in stack power at 200 ma/cm2 @ 160C, and a 9% reduction in stack power at 400 ma/cm2. The 2% CO is the confirmed maximum reformer operating characteristics on a dry mass basis. However, the HT-PEM power reduction is off-set by requiring fewer components and a higher "system" efficiency as compared to LT-PEM fuel cell systems.
