ReGen III Commences Additional Pilot Study with Koch Modular and Engages ICP Securities Inc. for Automated Market Making Services

Vancouver, British Columbia (Newsfile Corp. – February 26, 2024) – ReGen III Corp. (TSXV: GIII) (OTCQB: ISRJF) (FSE: PN4) (ReGen III” or the “Company), a leading clean technology company commercializing the patented ReGen™ process to upcycle used motor oil (“UMO”) into high-value Group III base oils, is pleased to provide an update regarding incremental pilot studies, the issuance of its 6th U.S. patent and the engagement of ICP Securities Inc. (“ICP”) for automated market making services. 

Pilot Study

Building on prior, successful pilot study work completed by Koch Modular Process Systems (“Koch Modular”), a joint venture with Koch-Glitsch LP, Koch Modular has commenced additional pilot testing at its Texas facilities.  The primary purpose of this work is to generate samples of modified base oil products requested by major offtake purchasers. As the process designer for ReGen III’s Molecular Separation Unit (“MSU”), Koch Modular brings over 40 years of industry experience specializing in liquid-liquid extraction systems. The pilot study is expected to wrap up in mid-April 2024, at which time the Company will deliver additional samples to these offtake parties.

Tom Lawlor, Chief Operating Officer of ReGen III, states, “During the course of 2023, offtake parties from around the globe, including oil and gas Majors, Super-Majors, international traders and lubricant blenders, have shown serious interest in our suite of sustainable products, resulting in robust demand for samples. In addition, potential new markets have been identified for modified base oils. Koch Modular’s pilot studies on our MSU will not only generate more samples but will also further validate feedstock properties, optimize yields of critical offtake products, and re-confirm the API properties of our base oil products, all of which are critical to our ongoing discussions with offtake parties.”

Patent Update

Further to the Company’s press release of December 20, 2023 ReGen III received its official patent certificate (Patent Number: 11873463) on January 16, 2024 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the method and system for re-refining and upgrading used oil, resulting in 18 patents issued, allowed, or accepted for the Company’s ReGen™ process, in addition to fourteen (14) patents pending globally.
