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.
