NewBridge Global Ventures Appoints Dr. Doug Mancosky as Interim Chief Technology Officer

Dr. Mancosky has Proven Track Record of Successfully Developing and Commercializing Extraction Technologies

Orem, UT, Oct. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NewBridge Global Ventures, Inc., (OTCQB: NBGV), a technology led hemp processing company, today announced that Dr. Doug Mancosky, Chief Science Officer at Hydro Dynamics Inc. (HDI), has been appointed by the Board of Directors to serve as Chief Technology Officer on an interim basis. Dr. Mancosky joins NewBridge with the full support of HDI, where he will continue to actively serve as HDI’s CSO, to oversee the initial deployment of HDI’s Shockwave Power Reactor (SPR) technology. 

Dr. Mancosky’s participation expands the relationship between HDI and NewBridge that began earlier this year with a Technology License Agreement for the use of HDI’s proprietary patented SPR cavitation technology to produce solvent-free CBD crude oil extracted using a water-based method on a large-scale commercial basis.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Doug join the team at NBGV. We believe that his ground-breaking work in extraction will help to define and push the industry forward, making him the best person to have directing the deployment of this technology at NewBridge to bring solvent-free CBD crude oil to market at scale,” said Chris Bourdon, CEO of NewBridge Global Ventures. “We are also excited to further reinforce our relationship with Hydro Dynamics as we bring this exciting technology to the hemp industry.”

“I am thrilled to take a more active role at NewBridge to oversee the deployment of the ShockWave Power™ Technology, build out the team and develop strategic direction that will accelerate the success of NewBridge and the ShockWave Power™ Technology in the hemp industry,“ said Dr. Mancosky, author of five U.S. patents with two directly related to cavitation extraction technology. “Hemp extraction is similar to HDI's hop extraction process, which has resulted in the ShockWave Power™ Technology being installed in breweries throughout the world because of the significant improvements and savings created for the industry.”

Dr. Mancosky will work closely with NBGV’s other technology partner, AgriSep, to integrate the two proven technologies and deliver on the next generation, solvent-free system that can take fresh hemp and extract and separate full-spectrum CBD crude oil at scale.
