JBI, Inc. -- IsleChem Contributions to P2O
NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, Feb. 12, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JBI, Inc. (the "Company") (OTCBB: JBII) announces that IsleChem, a state certified laboratory, has been working closely with the Company since December 2009 on chemical, analytical and process engineering for its P2O technology. The core businesses of IsleChem are Contract R&D, Contract Manufacturing, Scale Up Services, Analytical Services, Contract Technical Services, and Environmental Services. Full details of the company's expertise and professional services may be viewed at http://www.islechem.com
IsleChem is currently running a JBI processor at their site and gathering analytical data to support the Company's green claims and technology. The analytical data IsleChem is collecting covers a range of post consumer feedstocks and will be utilized to enable the JBI global growth strategy.
As well, IsleChem has been supporting JBI's engineers to maximize process efficiency and fuel output for target markets.
CEO John Bordynuik commented, "JBI welcomes IsleChem's research scientist's knowledge, analytical capability and industrial expertise to the P2O team. IsleChem is able to work at the molecular level to further improve P2O's efficiency and hydrocarbon output and working closely with such a local partner continues to be a key component of our business strategy. This P2O process is a home run for JBI and I am extremely pleased with how it is operating."
JBI, Inc. is transitioning to become a global technology leader whose purpose is to mine data from JBI's large information archive, find under-productive entities to inject our superior proprietary technologies into, and benefit from increased productivity and profitability, beginning with Plastic2Oil. JBI has also acquired the following operations:
JAVACO, Inc. ("Javaco") is part of the Supplier Diversity Network, WBENC. JAVACO, Inc. currently distributes over 100 lines of equipment from fiber optic transmitters to RF connectors. To further enhance business in the United States, new distribution lines are frequently being added including a line of home theater and audio video products. Javaco will operate and manage the Company's Plastic2Oil sites in Mexico.
Pak-It, LLC ("Pak-It"): Using the patented Pak-It™ delivery system (liquid cleaner in a water soluble sachet) Pak-It can deliver glass cleaner, disinfectant, multi-purpose, and many more cleaning products (42 products currently) shipped in tiny packages of condensed cleaner (inside a 'dry' 1 quart container). This delivery method is "green" since it's fully biodegradable and saves thousands of dollars in shipping. The user simply adds water to the container without measuring or cutting the Pak-It. Large retailers and many national Building Service Contractors already using the product have documented significant cost savings from shipping, training, inventory control and space.
Accordingly, our revenue sources presently include (i) income from reading archived tapes (including microfiche) from clients such as NASA, (ii) income from the recently acquired Javaco, Inc., (iii) income from the sale of Pak-It products, and a bulk chemical facility which we realized beginning October 1, 2009, and (iv) from the anticipated commencement of operations in the first quarter of 2010 with Plastic2Oil, a process and service that converts plastic to fuel oil.
