SNRG Corporation Announces Devulcanized Rubber Production

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) -  SNRG Corporation (PINKSHEETS: SNRG) announced this morning that the Company has completed the set up of small scale production of devulcanized rubber at its facility in Bay City Texas. A short video of the initial production sample coming out of the cooler will be available for viewing on our website www.snrg.net.

"The objective of the current production capacity is to establish the first step toward generating revenues," stated Mr. Fimrite. "Potential customers typically need a volume of sample material to process as they modify their product recipes to substitute devulcanized rubber for more expensive virgin rubber."

Current production is achieved with manual operation of the materials preparation and mixing process and is not intended to produce marketable quantities of devulcanized rubber. However, based on indicated customer response to our first sample product the company has decided to accelerate its development of marketable production by permanently installing its pilot plant equipment in a fully automated production line capable of producing 10 million pounds a year of devulcanized rubber.

According to Chief Executive officer of SNRG Corp. D Elroy Fimrite, "The rapid escalation of natural rubber prices, 115% in the past year and 30% in the past three months to a record $1.40 per pound has prompted us to increase our intended capacity from 80 million pounds to 90 million pounds, and accelerate the timing of producing marketable quantities by the automation and reinstallation of the pilot plant equipment. We now anticipate an ability to commence sales in the second quarter of this year."

Devulcanized rubber is not a new commodity, low quality devulcanized "reclaim rubber" has been produced and sold for over 100 years and even with its very poor chemical and physical properties constitutes around 5% of the global rubber supply, a volume in excess of 5 million tonnes a year. The devulcanized rubber the company will produce will have vastly superior properties to "reclaim rubber," will warrant a significantly higher market price and will have access to a much larger market than reclaim rubber.

The company's devulcanized rubber has excellent properties and can be used as a substitute for virgin materials in the manufacture of numerous rubber products. The technology acquired by the company is unique, proven and ready for commercial production. The global virgin rubber demand is in excess of 22 million metric tons per year or in excess of 60 million tons of compounds and consists of thousands of manufacturers that can substitute devulcanized rubber in their products and achieve substantial savings.
