As the exclusive licensee for the commercialization of these technologies, Avjet Biotech will sell stock and use the funds raised to reimburse the university for its investment in patent applications, as well as allocate development capital to create a continuous production model for the biofuel refining system.

    "We are excited to work with Avjet Biotech to increase awareness of the unique refineries that they are creating," said Briguglio. "We commend Avjet's commitment to reducing our dependence on foreign oil, and we look forward to assisting the company with its public relations efforts."
