NEW YORK, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Synthesis Energy Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SYMX) ("SES"), a global energy and gasification technology company, has appointed Feintuch Communications as its public relations agency of record.
Headquartered in Houston, SES provides technology, equipment and engineering services for the conversion of coal, biomass and municipal waste feedstocks into high value energy and chemical products. The company utilizes its proprietary advanced fluidized bed gasification technology, based upon U-GAS® for which it holds an exclusive license from the Gas Technology Institute.
"SES has the leading proprietary gasification technology that enables the production of high value energy products from low cost feedstocks including low quality coals, biomass and municipal waste. We are well positioned to take advantage of global opportunities, especially in emerging markets where low cost coals can be abundant and oil and gas are expensive or scarce," said Robert W. Rigdon, president and CEO of Synthesis Energy Systems. "As we prepare for the start-up of our Yima Joint Venture coal to methanol project in China this year, we have selected Feintuch Communications to help generate global awareness of the company and our capabilities, as well as this major new facility."
"This is an exciting time to partner with SES which is addressing the critical energy needs of emerging markets, including China, India and other areas in Southeast Asia," said Henry Feintuch, president of Feintuch Communications. "SES is unlocking value from largely untapped resources, particularly low cost, low quality coals, which are abundant. Its advantageous technology and vertical businesses will provide a foundation for economic growth in developing regions of the world. We are partnering with SES and its investor relations firm, MBS Value Partners, to communicate the company's strengths and enhance its global visibility."
About Synthesis Energy Systems, Inc.
SES provides technology, equipment and engineering services for the conversion of low rank, low cost coal and biomass feedstocks into energy and chemical products. Its strategy is to create value through providing technology and equipment in regions where low rank coals and biomass feedstocks can be profitably converted into high value products through its proprietary U-GAS® fluidized bed gasification technology, which SES licenses from the Gas Technology Institute. U-GAS® gasifies coal cost effectively, without many of the harmful emissions normally associated with coal combustion plants. The primary advantages of U-GAS® relative to other gasification technologies are (a) greater fuel flexibility provided by the ability of SES to use all ranks of coal (including low rank, high ash and high moisture coals, which are significantly cheaper than higher grade coals), many coal waste products and biomass feed stocks; and (b) the ability of SES to operate efficiently on a smaller scale, which enables the construction of plants more quickly, at a lower capital cost, and, in many cases, in closer proximity to coal sources. SES currently has offices in Houston, Texas, and Shanghai, China. For more information on SES and SRS, visit www.synthesisenergy.com or call (713) 579-0600.
