Velocys has built a pioneering patent portfolio, and owns, or is licensed under, several hundred patents with coverage in more than 30 countries.
Our patent estate includes fundamental and broad patents relevant to smaller scale gas-to-liquids. Our intellectual property (IP) portfolio has years to run and is of a high quality, having been cited more than 3,000 times in others' patents. Velocys' patent strength has been demonstrated through an excellent record of successful defence and re-examination of its patents that have been challenged.
The company continues to actively seek IP protection in the UK and internationally for its innovations in a variety of ways, including patents, trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights, and other protections that apply to our proprietary process technology, reactors and catalysts.
We will defend our practice and our clients' practice of our licensed Fischer-Tropsch process technology for patent freedom to operate. Velocys has passed extensive due diligence for patent clearance.
