LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 26, 2015) - Robix Alternative Fuels, Inc. ("Robix" or the "Company") (CSE:RZX)(FRANKFURT:R0X) announced today that it has demonstrated its patented C160 vessel in open water testing in Mexico. The C160 is capable of recovering up to 160 m3/hr of spilt oil off the surface of water. The C160 exceeded expectations in terms of its oil recovery performance and operation in open water. The next step is to complete independent 3rd party testing by local authorities to qualify the C Series for commercial sales in Mexico. Pictured here is the C160 deployed in open water.
"I am delighted to report that our internal testing of the C160 was, to quote our operating engineers, 'beyond our expectations'," commented Nathan Hansen, President and CEO of Robix. "Now, I am looking forward to testing this product with qualified 3rd party officials in Mexico. Upon successful completion of that test we will have a green light to actively pursue commercial sales in Mexico. We have identified a number of customers and will be working closely with our JV partners to produce a sales order book. These JV partnerships have proven they can generate market traction through the successful launch of our P Series in Mexico which received technical and legal approval from Pemex (of Petroleos Mexicanos) just last month."
The C Series vessels are scalable by design. The small end, the C10, can recover up to 10 m3/hr while the C20, C40 and C80 increase proportionally to the medium sized C160. Larger sizes are available on request. The C Series is capable of efficiently and effectively recovering oil in rough and debris laden sea conditions due to its rugged design and stable platform. Where other conventional mechanical oil recovery systems quite often fail in anything more than calm waters, the C Series can operate in waves up to 8 feet, depending on the size of the vessel. The recovery rate of the Robix C Series is in the 90-97% range which is significantly higher than traditional recovery rates recorded by industry over the past two decades.
