Aries Clean Energy, LLC (“ARIES”), an environmental leader in technology addressing our world-wide need for sustainable waste management and waste-to-energy solutions, rejects EQTEC’s July 28 announcement on every point.
EQTEC’s assertion that ARIES “abruptly filed suit” alleging infringement of ARIES’ US-patented technology is without foundation. ARIES and EQTEC had been in negotiations since January 2020, and after months of fruitless discussions ARIES was forced to file suit in response to EQTEC’s repeated refusals of ARIES’ requests for information. Providing ample warning of the seriousness of the issues, ARIES’ counsel forwarded a draft complaint to both EQTEC and its US customer, North Fork Community Power, on June 16, 2020. In reaction to EQTEC’s continued lack of responsiveness, ARIES then filed its patent infringement suit on July 7, 2020.
It is noteworthy that EQTEC apparently lacks any US-patented technology, especially in view of their baseless disparagement of ARIES patents, which are at the center of the infringement suit.
Although EQTEC has requested that ARIES withdraw its patent infringement suit, ARIES has no intention of doing so. ARIES will be unrelenting in its protection of its intellectual property rights in the US and worldwide.
