KENT, Wash. — Transformative Wave announced that the Canadian Intellectual Property Office has issued patent approval on the company’s CATALYST technology, marking the fourth overall patent for the product. The first patent was awarded in August 2013 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, followed by a second U.S. patent in January 2015, and the Australian Intellectual Property Office issued a patent in April 2015. The CATALYST is an energy efficiency solution for existing commercial constant volume HVAC systems.

Danny Miller, president of Transformative Wave, said, “We are proud Canada is the third country to recognize the unique technology and logic the CATALYST is made of and has issued this latest patent to protect the intellectual property we have worked so hard to develop and bring to market. Again, I would be remiss if I didn’t personally thank Justin Sipe, co-inventor of the CATALYST, for his contributions to developing a solution unlike any other in the marketplace today.”

The CATALYST is a complete HVAC energy efficiency retrofit kit for existing constant volume HVAC systems. It is manufactured and shipped as an easy-to-install pre-wired kit designed to lower the energy use and improve the performance of constant volume HVAC systems. According to the company, the product reduces overall energy use by 25 percent to 50 percent. In addition, Transformative Wave’s eIQ Platform provides customers real-time interaction with CATALYST-equipped HVAC units for performance verification, fault alerts, remote set point adjustment, and scheduling via a web interface.
