Manganese X Subsidiary and JV Partner Form PureBiotic Air Inc. and Expand Testing of HVAC Air Purification Delivery System for Mitigation of COVID-19 and Other Contaminants With the University of Massachusetts

Montréal, Québec, Canada, December 3, 2020 Manganese X Energy Corp. (TSXV: MN) (FSE: 9SC2) (OTC: MNXXF) (“Manganese X” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Disruptive Battery Corp (“DBC”), in conjunction along with its US JV partner, PureBiotic Air Inc., is expanding testing of its HVAC Air Purification Delivery System for the mitigation of toxic substances.

This project is headed by Mr. Lino G. Morris, who is making a return to the University of Massachusetts (UM) Turi Laboratories for the purpose of additional testing and protocols of the PureBiotic HVAC Air Purification Delivery System. This, in turn, will provide more research, demonstrating the system’s efficacy for the mitigation of a range of contaminants including COVID-19 on both surface and air.

In addition, Manganese X is pleased to announce it has completed its US based JV incorporation under the corporate name PureBiotic Air, Inc. Its production facilities will be based in Orlando, Florida and will operate under the direction of Mr. Morris.

Martin Kepman, CEO comments, “The Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of biological and technology alternatives proposed by PureBiotic Air, Inc. for the mitigation of a wide range of pathogens, including the Coronavirus as well as a range of contaminants allergens and infectious diseases. The purpose of utilizing UM is that their research and testing laboratory is accepted and recognised by many government agencies and certification organizations. The lab has a Biological Safety Level classification that covers testing of COVID-19 and other toxic materials.

Mr. Kepman continued, “For the purpose of this study, UM will also be coordinating with Virginia State University for some unique aspects of infection control factors which includes biofilm testing. As well, the overall testing and coordination for additional restricted materials is expected to include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other university labs, as needed.”

All testing procedures and data will be structured to ensure that all of the data from all parties involved in the testing is properly documented so as to be suitable for peer review publication.

JV partner, Mr. Morris is making a return for additional testing at the University of Massachusetts TURI Laboratories at Lowell because of the exceptionally well structured and performed previous research and testing project he undertook with the Lab to successfully obtain the Green Seal Certification Mark for his Company’s biological solution. This is a universal symbol indicating their product meets the highest benchmark of both “Green – Environmental Safe”.

The company is not making any express or implied claim that it has developed a COVID-19 air management solution at this time.
