Stated Senator Polanco: “MGX is changing the way we look at the energy industry and the environment. I feel the Company is poised for growth by combining cleantech and mineral extraction to extract lithium and produce a clean water byproduct using low energy nano-filtration. I am excited to join the Company and work alongside their accomplished team as they expand into California.”
Mr. Polanco is a former California State Assembly Member and Senator, having been first elected in 1986.
