GlyEco Issues Reminder that Rights Offering Will Expire at 5:00 pm New York Time on Friday, August 4, 2017

ROCK HILL, SC / ACCESSWIRE / July 28, 2017 / GlyEco, Inc. ("GlyEco" or the "Company") (OTC PINK: GLYE), a leading specialty chemical company, would like to remind its rights offering shareholders of record that they have the right, but not the obligation, to exercise their non-transferable basic subscription rights for $0.08 per common share, which allows its shareholders of record to acquire additional shares of common stock (the "rights offering").

The rights offering also includes an over-subscription privilege, which will entitle each rights holder that exercises its basic subscription privilege in full the right to purchase additional shares of common stock that remain unsubscribed at the expiration of the rights offering. Both the basic and over subscription privileges are subject to the availability and pro rata allocation of shares among participants.

The subscription period ends at 5:00 pm New York Time on Friday, August 4, 2017. It is important to note that many broker dealers may have different cut off times prior to the official subscription period deadline. As such, GlyEco recommends that all record date rights holders contact their broker or financial advisor about the rights offering to ensure that they can participate by the broker dealer's cut off time for subscriptions.

The exercise price is $0.08. The rights may only be exercised for a maximum of $3,200,000 of subscription proceeds in the aggregate.

The rights offering is being made pursuant to GlyEco's effective registration statement on Form S-1 (Reg. No. 333-215941) on file with the SEC. The offering is being made only by means of a prospectus, copies of which may be obtained from:

Olde Monmouth Stock Transfer Co., Inc.
200 Memorial Parkway
Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716
Phone: (732) 872-2727
