GenOil's solutions can be readily integrated into conventional systems to increase productivity, reduce both capital and operating costs, thereby providing a rapid payback. GenOil currently owns 12 technologies and intellectual property that are protected under 19 patents or patents pending. GenOil's primary technology is the hydroconversion upgrader (GHU). The GHU upgrading process can produce approximately 2 million barrels a day of new oil from rejected carbon, and can convert 13 million barrels of heavy oil bottoms or residues from refining to lighter oil for use in making gasoline. Those fifteen million barrels of oil can replace the entire production of light oil from the Persian Gulf and solve the shortage in gasoline. GenOil's patented hydrogenation process converts heavy oil fractions into lighter fractions, resulting in 25% greater output of oil from refineries and significant cost savings. With US refineries running at capacity, together with finite world oil supplies this technology could be one of the most valuable innovations of the century. Company: Hana Biosciences, Inc.

The Company's proprietary technology uses a lingual spray to rapidly deliver drugs into the systemic circulation. The technology can be applied to a variety of drugs in the Rx, OTC and veterinary therapeutic areas. The delivery of a therapeutic agent through the oral mucosa may lead to a faster onset of action and avoids degradation in the GI tract. Lingual sprays generally permit administration of a lower dose of the active ingredient compared with tablet formulations of the same drug due to efficient mucosal absorption and avoidance of the GI tract and hepatic first-pass effects. Drugs administered in a spray form to the oral mucosa have the potential for a) faster onset of action, b) improved safety profile, and c) enhanced patient compliance.
