BenchMark Energy Announces New Product Availability

Coldspring, Texas (March 17, 2014) – BenchMark Energy Corp. (OTC Pink:BMRK), a refiner and supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes,  announced it will include propylene glycol in its available product line.
Propylene Glycol

Propylene Glycol is used as a chemical feedstock for the production of unsaturated polyester resins as well as to produce polyurethanes. It is considered to be safe for use in and around food by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is used as a humectant, a solvent and preservative in food and for tobacco products (it is also a major ingredient in electronic cigarettes, along with glycerin).

Propylene Glycol is used as a solvent in many pharmaceuticals such as diazepam and lorazepam. Propylene Glycol is able to lower the freezing point of water and so in addition to being a main component in BenchMark’s Timberline antifreeze, it is also used in applications related to de-icing, as an oil dispersant and is present in the vapor used in vaporizers.

Mark Bateman, the CEO of BenchMark Energy Corp. commented, “The Company is very excited to be able to add Propylene Glycol to the growing list of our available products.  We believe that Propylene Glycol is an important building block in numerous applications and will be in high demand here in the United States as well as internationally.”

About BenchMark Energy Corporation

BenchMark Energy Corporation is a leading provider of a Green Renewable Energy Source, glycerin. Pure glycerin, a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid is an organic bio-degradable compound widely used in the energy, pharmaceutical, and personal care product industries. Glycerin, a result of trans-esterification of biodiesel, accounts for nine percent (9%) of the unrefined biodiesel produced. The rise in biodiesel production as a renewable fuel over the recent years sources an abundance of off-grade glycerin. This grade of glycerin, also referred to as crude glycerin, is approximately 60% to 80% pure. Biodiesel produced glycerin is called crude glycerin or industrial grade glycerin, containing water, methanol, fatty acids, biodiesel and other trace chemicals, including matter organic non-glycerol (MONG). This grade of glycerin has numerous applications in the coal, marine, mining, oil & gas, and other energy sub-sectors.

Additional glycerin applications include the food and beverage industry where it serves as a humectant, solvent, and sweetener. Glycerin is also used as a filler in commercially prepared low-fat foods and as a thickening agent. In the medical and pharmaceutical sector, glycerin is widely used as a means to provide smoothness, providing lubrication and as a humectant. It used in toothpaste, cough syrup, elixirs, expectorants, mouthwash, soap, and numerous other personal products.
