Liquid Asset Development, LLC is the result of nearly two years of EPA funded research on turning pervious concrete (concrete without fine particles such as sand) into a water filter that can utilized for hygienic applications, low cost recovery of metals from mine waste, desalinization, ocean mining pre-treatment, and removal of phosphates from agricultural runoff. The listed utilization of the filter is not inclusive of all commercial uses indicating extensive potential for financial and humanitarian returns. Additional advantages of this filter include the infrastructure for design, production, and distribution of this technology already exists around the world.
2009 - 2010: Build upon previous research, increase product and business plan visibility, engage potential partners for commercial use.
Mid 2011: Negotiate first IP transfer contract, receive payment as negotiated.
2011 – 2013: Work with client while using publicity from the first deal to drive future contracts.
Based on research, identified the initial industry and humanitarian uses of the filter are:
Mining - chemical and metal processing for economical waste water treatment and metals recovery, sea-bed mineral extraction pre-treatment.
Governmental, Commercial, and Industrial – Desalinization, removal of toxic manufacturing wastes, and hygienic pre and post treatment of drinking water.
The demand for clean water for drinking, hygiene, and irrigation will grow with necessity as resources become limited and overused. Economical metals recovery can be a revenue generator for companies and nations as well as improving overall economic development. Sustainability is becoming a demand and a necessity for local and multi-national businesses and governments.
Revenue streams potential identified are:
Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) Metal Recovery - The estimated value of metals lost to AMD in the US at $200 million and globally at almost $40 billion per year (based on a 2004 Pennsylvania DEP study by Joe Rathman).
Desalinization – Expected global investment in reverse osmosis desalinization is $25 billion USD by 2010 and over $56 billion USD by 2015 and with an estimated yearly operating cost of $17 billion USD. (http://www.the-infoshop.com/study/gwi47246-desalination.html)
The market value of clean water for hygienic/potable use is more than the value of human life. Without sufficient clean water death occurs. Global GDP is dependent upon clean water because without it productivity drops significantly. No geographical limit exists in the market of producing clean water because it is a global necessity for economic development and life.
Liquid Asset Development will gain shares in the AMD market within 1-2 years and the desalinization industry in 2-3 years. Negotiated contracts will involve a complete but specific use technology transfer with a defined period of support, similar to how open source software is sold and supported. The revenue structure will depend on the following:
Within the United States, Canada, Western Europe, and Australia, the legal system allows a negotiated payment structure between Liquid Asset Development and private parties. Anticipated potential of $10 million in contracts is projected for the third year of market development.
Potential Negotiated Payment Structures:
1. Upfront payment and annual installments or,
2. Large percentage of future royalties from reselling an improved/integrated version of the filter into other technologies.
Payment would occur up front when licensing the filter to non-US based entities or entities not based in countries with a developed English legal system and NGOs. In return, the foreign/NGO entities enter into the agreement with Liquid Asset Development in the US giving jurisdiction within the United States.
Liquid Asset Development’s exit strategy recognizes that market saturation for the filter technology may occur in 10-20 years. It is the intent of Liquid Asset Development LLC to use assets and cash earned during licensing to evolve into a sustainable holding company of green/clean technologies surviving market saturation of the initial filtration technology.
