CLIENT FEATURE: Robix (RZX: CSE) Revolutionary Patented Oil Spill Clean Up Technology

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 2:43 PM on Thursday, December 18th, 2014

RZX: CSE

The Corporation is an “industrial products/technology” company, offering to investors a unique opportunity to participate in a leading company in the business of ownership of patents, and their development from commercialization to worldwide expansion through various business arrangements.

Highly Cost Effective – Clean Ocean Vessel

  • COV’s rapid recovery rate and large on-board storage result in low per barrel recovery cost.
  • COV’s simple design minimizes down time for repair and maintenance.
  • A two-man crew can be easily trained and the COV vessel can operate long hours without interruption
  • Selling COV products in the first half of 2015

Design Versatility

  • COV’S can be scaled to meet various application requirements (sizes range from 10 Ft., 20 Ft., 40 Ft., 80 Ft., 100 Ft. (references to length of vessel
  • A standard 40-foot COV is 40 feet in length, 26 feet in width, and 12 feet in depth
  • Recently completed the engineering drawings for the Clean Ocean Vessel (COV) and ordered critical components to initiate construction on the COV

Featured COV Technology

Recent Highlights

  • Signed an exclusive manufacturing agreement with Rayco Steel Ltd, to manufacture the Clean Ocean Vessel
  • Creating a new business division, through a subsidiary entity, to enter into the marine industry.
  • Announced that Rick Carson, of Montreal, PQ, has agreed to join Robix as a Strategic Advisor.
  • Announced that it intends to enter into an agreement with Rayco Steel Inc., wherein Rayco shall work on completion of engineering construction drawings for the anticipated construction of the first Clean Ocean Vessel.

How the COV compares to the competition:

  • Rates of oil recovered and recovery-throughput efficiencies are noted as “oil rate of recovery” (ORR) and “recovery efficiency” (RE).
  • The water surface lifting force generated by the COV’s patented contra-rotating drums acts in a suction or pumping manner that increases the ORR compared to conventional skimmer systems and the RE of the COV is in the 90-97% range. This is competitive with best in class 21st century technology in terms of ORR and RE.
  • Further improvements to the ORR (in terms of gallons per minute) could easily catapult the COV to “top three” status, by increasing the surface area of the drums through design modifications without impairing the stability of the vessel which is inherent to the COV design.
  • When our competitors’ skimmer systems meet waves above 18 inches, they are forced to suspend service. The COV operates in rough sea conditions (as high as 8 feet waves), significantly out-performing its competitors, and stands in a class of its own.

Robix Provides Update on COV Construction

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:41 AM on Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA–(July 8, 2014) – Robix Alternative Fuels Inc. (“Robix” or the “Corporation”) (CSE:RZX)(FRANKFURT:R0X) announced today that the construction of the first commercial Clean Ocean Vessel (COV) is progressing as planned. Long lead items are being received and construction of the COV unit is scheduled to begin this month at Rayco Steel Ltd, of Sparwood, British Columbia, following final approval of engineering and construction drawings. A detailed construction progress report is expected in August 2014, with testing and commissioning of the COV anticipated in Q3 of 2014.

The first 40 ft COV prototype was built, by previous owners of the technology in the 1990s, in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, USA and tested in Leonardo, New Jersey, USA. Since acquiring the COV technology, Robix has designed state of the art hydraulics and electronics systems, which will be installed on the COV unit currently under construction. The new systems will allow the COV to perform more efficiently with less potential future maintenance issues.

Robix is also pleased to provide an update on its sales and marketing efforts. The sales and marketing team, led by Mr. Dale Oleksyn, is currently in discussions with a number of end users which have pre-existing relationships with the Company. These discussions are progressing well and certain end users have been identified and prioritized for COV demonstration and testing once the first unit is deployed. A more aggressive marketing campaign is scheduled to begin following deployment of the first commercial COV unit in the fall of 2014.

Robix holds a patent covering its unique COV technology. The COV is an ocean vessel, catamaran-hull barge design, capable of recovering oil from water in virtually any conditions; especially in rough seas (the 40 Foot COV is stable in conditions as severe as Beaufort 6, or equivalent to 8 foot ocean waves).

In addition, subject to regulatory approval, Robix has issued 160,000 options at $0.64 per share to consultants to the Company.
