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.”

SHARE STRUCTURE

As of March 01, 2014, the Company had approximately 23.5 million common shares issued and outstanding, with a public float of around 1.1 million shares.

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.”
