Glycerin as a Greener Alternative to Ethylene Glycol in Antifreeze

Coldspring, Texas (January 09, 2014) – BenchMark Energy Corp (OTCPink:BMRK), a supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes refiner and supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes, announces that the use of Glycerin in BenchMark’s upcoming Timberline Antifreeze product line is a greener alternative to Ethylene Glycol in antifreeze and engine coolant products.  ASTM International recently announced standards wherein the use of Glycerin within antifreeze and engine coolant products is seen as a much more environmental friendly and cost-effective alternative than Ethylene Glycol, which is the most prevalent component today. Glycerin, which is nontoxic to the environment, was used as a heat transfer agent in antifreeze formulations as early as 1920, but was eventually replaced by Ethylene Glycol in the 1930’s due to cost considerations.

ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), is a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of international voluntary consensus standards. Today, some 12,000 ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence.

ADVANTAGES OF GLYCERIN BASED ANTIFREEZE

– Close to neutral on a corrosive scale
– Glycerin is less corrosive to engine parts than Ethylene Glycol
– More cost-effective than Ethylene Glycol
– Better for the environment
– Supportive of the renewable fuels industry

UNIT SIZES TO BE MARKETED

Benchmark’s Antifreeze product line will be marketed in both 1 gallon containers and 55 gallon drums. The 1 gallon containers will be focused on the retail market, and through internal review, we feel could be very price competitive to current antifreeze products on the market.  55-gallon drums will be marketed towards transportation companies, farmers, school systems, automotive repair shops, and any enterprise that services fleets of vehicles. Although the launch is still pending for January 2014, Benchmark has already received indications of interest from transportation companies for pre-orders.

Mark Bateman, CEO of Benchmark Energy Corp. commented, “We are excited to announce the upcoming launch of Benchmark’s Antifreeze product line as its first commercial retail consumer product.  By utilizing our Glycerin supply and the positive environmental aspects of using Glycerin instead of Ethylene Glycol, we feel Benchmark is embarking on a cutting edge new product within the antifreeze market.”

Ludlow Research Issues Opinion on BMRK Based on Pending Launch of Commercial Antifreeze Product

NEW YORK, (December 27, 2013) – BenchMark Energy Corporation (OTC Pink:BMRK, a refiner and supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes, announces research report on company, based on pending commercial launch of retail brand antifreeze product called BenchMark Antifreeze.
 

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

– Top Supplier of Raw and Refined Glycerin
– Launching Commercial Antifreeze Product in mid-January 2014
– Strong Contacts with Transportation Fleet Shippers
– 24 Million Shares Outstanding
– Public Float only 1.1 Million
– Valuation Target $1.00 ($24 million market cap)

Benchmark Energy is one of the largest traders of both refined and raw Glycerin in North America, which is a by-product of biofuel production. They hold partnerships with nearly 60 biofuel production facilities across the US as suppliers of raw Glycerin, which is then resold to industrial manufacturers for the commercial process of other end use products.

Through their years of operation, and wide-scope of distribution through both rail and freight transportation across North America, the Company has established a number of contacts within their transportation and freight hauling network. The Company is in the process of launching their first brand retail antifreeze product in January 2014, to be marketed under the brand name ‘BenchMark Antifreeze’ towards a number of fleet transportation operators.

VALUATION POTENTIAL

As of Dec. 2013, the Company had approximately 23.5 million common shares issued and outstanding, with a public float of around 1.1 million shares. Along with BenchMark’s extensive network of trucking and fleet transportation contacts, their commercial retail antifreeze product expected for commercial launch in mid-January, potential for pre-orders to their transportation network, and a tight public float of just around 1.1 million, there is real potential for a sharp appreciation in their overall market capitalization value at these levels.
