Rameshni & Associates Technology & Engineering (RATE) is a woman-owned small business based in Pasadena, California since 2011. They are responsible for licensing sulphur technologies, gas processing, and decarbonization to achieve zero SO2 and CO2 emissions. Over the past 10 years, RATE has been granted more than 10 patents by the US Patent and Trademark Office, all related to advanced clean technologies that aim to meet environmental regulations by reducing SO2 and CO2 emissions. RATE has been trying to sell their technologies in countries like Kazakhstan that are required to comply with the new environmental regulations, but first had to raise awareness of advanced clean technologies. RATE utilized California State Trade Expansion Program (STEP) funding to conduct a Virtual International Partner Search (IPS), a service offered by the U.S. Commercial Service that assists export-ready U.S. businesses in identifying potential partners in international markets of interest. As a result, in October 2021, RATE signed a representation agreement with an engineering company in Kazakhstan that had been suggested as a potential partner in the final IPS report.
