MMEX Resources Corp. Finalizes Disruptive Refining Technology Design

MMEX technology parter, Polaris Engineering, receives patent to produce ultra-low sulfur fuels with carbon capture

FORT STOCKTON, TEXAS, Dec. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MMEX Resources Corp. (OTCPK: MMEX), a development-stage company focusing on planned hydrogen and clean fuel projects with carbon capture, announced it has completed  milestones with its technology provider Polaris Engineering for its West Texas project.

Jack W. Hanks, President and CEO of MMEX Resources Corp., said, “Along with Polaris Engineering, we have now completed significant milestones on the technology timeline for our Ultra Fuels Plus project. Our front end engineering and design package is 90% completed which allows us to move forward with planned financing and commercial arrangements. Polaris Engineering has received its  patent for the clean energy technology incorporating a 95% reduction in overall emissions after carbon capture. We are able to increase capacity beyond original targets by over 16% utilizing West Texas lighter crudes.”

MMEX’s goal is for the UltraFuels Plus Project to be  the first crude oil refining facility in the world to capture all of the CO2 emissions. This disruptive technology is a globally unique process to decarbonization. The carbon capture technology is provided by BASF through its OASE patented sytem.

As noted in MMEX’s July 29, 2021 announcement,  we are  able to expand the clean fuels product flexibility with the facility being slated to produce finished transportation grade ultra-low sulfur diesel; 87 Regular, 87 Clear, and 93 Premium grades of gasoline, readily available to our market on Interstate 10, the “transcontinental” highway traveling thru eight states from coast to coast.  Our rail capacity allows us to reach western U.S. markets to take advantage of clean fuels mandates and price advantages.”

Gerry Obluda, Principal of Polaris Engineering, the technology provider and EPC of the UltraFuels Plus project added, “We now have achieved a significant milestone with the award of the patent for our process which we have worked on for the past four years. Polaris is able to deliver to MMEX the detailed engineering and project costing which will allow MMEX to move forward on its financing. We look forward to working with MMEX to provide the engineering, construction and O&M functions for this first of its kind refinery.”
