Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 25, 2023) -  SATO Technologies Corp. (TSXV: SATO) (OTCQB: CCPUF) (the "Company", or "SATO"), a publicly listed company building digital infrastructures for Bitcoin and AI, is pleased to announce that a new study made with University of Québec at Trois-Rivières, exploring the potential for reusing heat generated from digital asset machines, such as those used for Bitcoin mining, has been released.

Preliminary findings from the study are promising. They indicate that the tested computers generate significant amounts of heat, with the recoverable heat energy potential ranging from 68% to 88% for the MicroBT WhatsMiner model and from 66% to 86.33% for the Bitmain Antminer model. These percentages vary based on the cooling system employed and the surrounding conditions. For the purpose of the experiment, air cooling was used.

These results underscore the vast potential of digital asset mining heat waste recovery as a sustainable solution to reduce energy costs and mitigate environmental impact as from an input of energy, operating such machines allows to obtain both Bitcoin and waste heat that can be used for projects.

Yvan Guibault, a strategic advisor for SATO and one of the first shareholders, collaborated on the study and comments: "I'm glad this first step was conducted successfully, advancing in the direction of waste heat re-use as we first initiated it back in 2018. With these new data points, we will be able to transition to the next level of application for large-scale industrial use of waste heat re-use."

These results not only validate the viability of heat recovery technologies but also pave the way for their adoption in the digital asset sector. Such advancements can significantly reduce the industry's carbon footprint while simultaneously meeting industrial heat demands.

PhD Student Alejandro Parrado-Duque, under the mentorship of Professor Yves Dubé and Kodjo Agbossou, received accolades for his contributions. Professor Agbossou is a full-time professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering at the UQTR. He holds the Hydro-Québec Research Chair on the Transactional Management of Residential Power and Energy Demand, is the director of the Laboratory of Innovation and Research in Intelligent Energy (LIREI), a member of the Hydrogen Research Institute, and vice-president of RLS-Sciences. Alejandro received a prize for his active participation during RTUCON 2023, the International Scientific Conference on Power and Electrical Engineering of Riga Technical University.
