American Power Group Corp. (APGI)
SmallCapVoice reported previously on American Power Group Corp. (APGI), and we choose to report on the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed American Power Group Corp. designs and produces proven alternative fuel solutions for stationary power generators, backup power systems, and commercial transportation. The Company’s alternative energy subsidiary, American Power Group, Inc. (APG), provides a cost-effective patented Turbocharged Natural Gas™ conversion technology for vehicular, stationary, and off-road mobile diesel engines. The proprietary technology displaces up to 75 percent of the normal diesel fuel consumption. The average displacement ranges from 40 percent to 65 percent.
American Power Group’s dual fuel technology is an inventive non-invasive energy enhancement system. The dual fuel technology system converts existing diesel engines into more efficient and environmentally friendly engines. These engines have the flexibility to run on diesel fuel and liquefied natural gas (LNG); diesel fuel and compressed natural gas; diesel fuel and pipeline or well-head gas; and diesel fuel and bio-methane. These engines have the flexibility to return to 100 percent diesel fuel operation at any time.
Pertaining to its dual fuel, methane gas is metered into a diesel engine's air intake, before the turbocharger, by the air filter. As the enriched air/gas mixture increases the engine's power, the diesel's own governor senses the power increase and backs off on diesel flow. This system maintains a balance of gas-to-diesel ratios, roughly 80-50 percent natural gas to 20-50 percent diesel fuel, keeping the proper British Thermal Unit (BTU) energy within the engine across its power curve.
The maintaining of the energized fuel balance is with a proprietary read-only electronic controller system. This ensures the engines operate at original equipment manufacturers' (OEMs) specified temperatures and pressures. Installation on a broad variety of engine models and end-market applications requires no engine modifications.
Recently, American Power Group announced that its subsidiary, American Power Group (APG), secured $3.25 million of term loan financing from an accredited institutional investor (certain members are affiliated with a number of members of American Power Group’s Board of Directors). The proceeds will be used to buy two additional Flare Capture and Recovery Systems, which can monetize captured flared gas converted into Natural Gas Liquids (NGL's). Furthermore, one of the two units will be able to produce compressed natural gas for APG's Turbocharged Natural Gas® Dual Fuel conversion technology.

QS Energy, Inc. (QSEP)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight QS Energy, Inc. (QSEP). Today, QS Energy, Inc. closed trading at $0.249, off by 0.40%, on 36,576 volume with 13 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 20,734, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$0.741.
QS Energy, Inc. today announced that it has engaged a leading, U.S.-based boutique investment bank to pursue financing in support of the Company's parallel growth strategies. These dual strategies are consistent of 1) commercialization and deployment of QS Energy's technology offerings; and 2) the acquisition of synergistic and accretive entities or product lines through its wholly-owned subsidiary, QS Energy Pool.
QS Energy, Inc. (QSEP) provides the global energy industry with patent-protected industrial equipment designed to deliver measurable performance improvements to crude oil pipelines. Developed in partnership with leading crude oil production and transportation entities, QSEP's high-value solutions address the enormous capacity inadequacies of domestic and overseas pipeline infrastructures that were designed and constructed prior to the current worldwide surge in oil production.
In support of our clients' commitment to the responsible sourcing of energy and environmental stewardship, QSEP combines scientific research with inventive problem solving to provide energy efficiency 'clean tech' solutions to bring new efficiencies and lower operational costs to the upstream, midstream and gathering sectors. QSEP's flagship product, AOT (Applied Oil Technology) improves the economics of transporting crude oil by reducing the viscosity of oil in pipelines. Once deployed on pipeline pumping stations, production and transportation companies benefit from the safer, more cost-effective delivery of greater volumes of oil while reducing energy consumption at pumping stations and lowering CO2 emissions.
The AOT technology is the result of years of research conducted at Temple University (Philadelphia, Penn.) and is the world's first ASME-certified industrial hardware to use the principles of electrorheology, the study of applying non-uniform electrical fields to change the mechanical behavior of fluids, to significantly reduce the viscosity of crude oil within pipelines during maximum flow conditions. Field tested by the U.S. Department of Energy, independent testing laboratories such as ATS RheoSystems and fabricated to exacting industry standards by QSEP's supply chain partners, the efficacy of AOT to increase flow rates, prevent bottlenecks, reduce pump station power consumption, enhance pipeline integrity and optimize flow assurance has been proven repeatedly in the lab and on a 300,000 barrel per day pipeline.
QSEP is also commercializing STWA Joule Heat, an energy-efficient technology for heating crude oil in pipelines to improve flow. Unlike traditional trace heating systems which generate heat via a resistive trace heating element which transfers energy into the oil, the QSEP solution applies an electrical field directly to oil, generating heat within the flow itself. The result is optimal heat conductivity and performance with less power and in a smaller form factor.
Guided by a dynamic management team led by Greggory Bigger, Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and a strong independent board of directors of energy industry veterans, QSEP is a revenue generating company with a solid cash position, clean balance sheet and a proven ability to develop and deliver industrial-grade equipment that support the company's mission and enhance shareholder value. As the exclusive licensee of oil viscosity reduction processes developed at Temple University and owner of 48 worldwide patents related to the use of electricity to change the mechanical behavior of oil and liquid natural gas, QSEP is well-positioned to capitalize on the explosive growth opportunities in the global crude oil production and transportation sector.

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO). Today, International Stem Cell Corp. closed trading at $3.45, off by 1.43%, on 6,693 volume with 20 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 939, and its 52-week low/high is $1.25/$18.15.
International Stem Cell Corp. announced today that it had entered into the second phase of the existing Research Agreement with Rohto Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. ("Rohto"), a global Japanese pharmaceutical company. After successfully completing preliminary studies of ISCO's human parthenogenetic neural stem cells (hpNSCs) Rohto acknowledged that ISCO's proprietary cells demonstrate consistent high quality and are suitable for further use in Rohto's research. If Rohto successfully demonstrates hpNSCs' efficacy in rodent models, which could lead to a possible treatment of a variety of degenerative eye disorders, Rohto will enter into negotiations of a definitive license agreement with ISCO in order to license ISCO's proprietary technology for therapeutic and commercial use.
International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human stem cells and the development and commercialization of cell-based biomedical products. The company was the first to develop and perfect a new class of human stem cells called parthenogenetic stem cells, created from unfertilized human eggs. ISCO has a strong patent portfolio offering clean intellectual property and freedom to operate. The company’s stem cells present superior immune matching capabilities and can be used in millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.
The company’s human stem cells have been shown to be as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells, however their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo, which effectively sidesteps the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. In contrast to induced pluripotent stem cells, ISCO’s stem cells do not involve manipulation of cells’ genome thereby avoiding potential safety and regulatory obstacles in clinical applications.
The company's scientists are currently focused on using its stem cells to treat severe unmet medical needs of the central nervous system (Parkinson’s disease), the liver and the eye, where cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells. Once the technology has been clinically validated there are an essentially unlimited number of potential applications. Because of their immune-matching ability a relatively small number of these stem cell lines could offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank as a means of serving populations of different immune types across the globe.
In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides a growing revenue stream through two wholly owned subsidiaries. Lifeline Cell Technology specializes in producing primary human cells and growth media for biological research, and Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and markets advanced anti-aging skincare products utilizing the company’s expertise in stem cell biology.
