CAN WE INTEREST YOU IN A FEW
SOLUTIONS INSPIRING ACTION?
The Ocean Exchange aggregates and promotes real solutions to the world’s
most pressing problems and urgent needs through
innovations that drive growth and efficiency.
The giant steps we are looking for already exist;
concepts ready to be realized and solutions ready
to take the leap from one industry to the next.
The following are samples of six transformative solutions. More are shown on our website OceanExchange.org
Treating the fuel before it enters the combustion chamber is
preferable to dealing with the problem after the fuel has
expanded many thousands of times in the form of exhaust
A proven method of cleaning up combustion on the inlet side of
the engine, boiler, etc. is the use of water in oil emulsified
fuels, now an accepted means of emissions reduction.
This simple, no moving parts device operates at
relatively low pressure and provides even, precise
particle size reduction and dispersions previously
unattainable with existing technologies.
• Reduces fuel consumption, emissions, soot on boiler tubes and cleaner engines, less maintenance.
• Emulsion is made on demand. No chemical additives or storage is needed or separation concerns of shipment
• Installed on existing fuel train and can be easily reverted back to fuel only.
• #2, 4, 5 and 6 fuels can be used.
• No emulsion is returned to fuel storage tanks and return fuel is re-emulsified.

ADDRESS EMISSIONS BEFORE THEY FORM
DRAMATICALLY REDUCING EMISSIONS AND
INCREASING FUEL EFFICIENCY
Nonox Fuel Emulsion Systems have been
• boilers in high-rise office buildings,
• trucks hauling goods and services up and
down the east coast of the US.
• Sailed the seas on vessel engines around
Applications Include Land and Marine
NoNox Emulsion-Combustion Systems can be
applied to oil fired boilers, burners, kilns, all
types of diesel engines, and generators.
• Emulsified Fuel is never returned to original fuel supply. The fuel delivered to the Emulsion Control Unit (ECU) is
isolated in its own fuel circuit.
• No emulsified fuel is ever left to separate in fuel train, pumps, etc. On shutdown or even if the power is shut off to
the unit, the ECU switches back to the regular fuel quickly flushing the fuel train with pure fuel.
• The more even combustion temperature reduces thermal stress and the more complete combustion greatly
reduces carbon buildup, thus reducing maintenance and extending service life, as well as improving efficiency.
• Uses fuel from your existing fuel supply/tank.
• The ECU requires no special training to operate
• All components, pumps, valves are similar to those already found in engine/boiler rooms.
• Installation is simple and swift.

The Wave Glider is the first unmanned autonomous marine robot
to use only the ocean's endless supply of wave energy for
propulsion (no manpower, no emissions, no refueling).
The Wave Glider employs a multi-patented design that allows it to
cost-effectively collect and transmit data gathered during yearlong
missions, over distances of thousands for miles, or while holding
"Our world makes progress through the invention of simple, yet
game-changing technologies. Liquid Robotics is one of these
game-changers." - Dr. Marv Langston, former DoD deputy chief information
It enables game changing discoveries to help address the biggest
challenges we face, including global climate change, national
security, hurricane & tsunami warning, and offshore energy &

Jellyfish inspired robot colony is proposed as a viable solution to
ocean exploration and monitoring. The design simplicity enables
low-cost manufacturing and easy deployment of millions of
ROBOJELLIES to monitor and explore the ocean.
• Use hydrogen and oxygen to power artificial muscles made of smart materials (multiwall carbon nanotubes, nickel-
titanium shape memory alloy and platinum nanoparticles).
• Chemical reaction activates articulation of jellyfish bell for mobility
• Byproduct is water vapor which doesn’t adversely affect the ocean (zero emission).
• Design is sustainable due to the possibility of scavenging hydrogen from ocean ( indefinite life ).

BRIDGING DEVELOPMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY
Coastal development and urbanized seascapes are
inevitable given 2/3 of the human population reside
in coastal zones.
Marine infrastructures such as ports, piers and
shipping channels are mainly composed of modular
concrete units forming breakwaters, sea walls and
Concrete is a poor substrate for biological
recruitment, and one of the reasons why coastal
development is considered the prime cause for
habitat loss, reduced biodiversity, and damaged
ECOncreteTM is an innovative yet simple solution to the conflict between
societal and environmental needs in coastal zones.
By manipulating concrete structures in three levels; concrete composition, surface texture and macro-
design, EconcreteTM elevates marine and coastal infrastructure’s ability to provide valuable ecosystem
services and improved environmental parameters associated with filter feeding communities.
Ecological designs (USPTO app 61/764800) increase the operational life span and stability of marine
infrastructures by encouraging biogenic buildup that protects them from damages associated with
aggressive salt-water environments.

Use coastal infrastructure for environmental goals such as
enhancing species with conservation value or creating nursing
grounds and shelter for different marine organisms.
Matrices withstand compressive strength of 30-80MPa with
different flexural and tensile strengths, complying with the
formal requirements for marine construction.
Units are designed to support biogenic buildup which is a
calcium carbonate deposition by marine organisms. These
include oysters, mussels, barnacles and corals which cover the
substrate, add volume, weight and contribute to its stability.
ECOncreteTM was developed at SeArc - Ecological Marine Consulting
by marine biologists specializing in habitat restoration.
