International biomass-based firm Active Energy has announced it has been awarded three new patents to turn forest waste into clean energy for its CoalSwitch® technology – the “next generation” pellet.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued two patents – No. 10,647,935 and No. 10,858,607. The Canadian Patent Office has issued patent No. 2,999,447, for treating and preparing biomass to be used as fuel.
The company said that the award of these new Patents builds upon its successful receipt of the Malaysian patent for CoalSwitch® in July 2022, as well as patents awarded in the United States in 2020 for the manufacturing and production of CoalSwitch® and in Canada in 2021 for beneficiating and cleaning biomass.

AEG’S CoalSwitch® is a second generation biomass fuel that has been tested, and proven, to replace the traditional coal fired-power industry and existing renewable biomass industry without requiring plant modification.
