Greenbelt Claims Duckweed Ethanol Feedstock Success (Ind. Report)
Greenbelt Resources
Date: 2019-03-08
Following up on our March 30, 2018 coverage, Paso Robles, California-based Greenbelt Resources Corporation , the developer and producer of a sustainable ECOsystem model that transforms food, beverage and ag industry waste into revenue generating bioproducts, reports it used its Commercial Scale Feedstock Testing Facility (CSTF) to conduct duckweed feedstock feasibility testing for a third party customer funded by the Andrew J. Young Foundation.

Common duckweed is a very small light green free-floating, seed bearing plant. Duckweed has 1 to 3 leaves, or fronds, of 1/16 to 1/8 inch in length. A single root (or root-hair) protrudes from each frond. Duckweeds tend to grow in dense colonies in quiet, undisturbed water.

In other Greenbelt news, the company also recently announced receipt of funding funding pursuant to an agreement with Purnol, LLC to produce bioethanol for use in the predominantly hemp based cannabis CBD extraction process.

Greenbelt, Young Foundation Ink DuckWeed DAYS Agreement (Ind. Report)
Greenbelt Resources
Date: 2018-03-30
In the Golden State, Paso Robles-based Greenbelt Resources Corp. reports it has inked a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with Georgia-based Duckweed DAYS LLC. -- a new entity aiming to commercialize and further the research carried out by the not-for-profit Andrew J. Young Foundation (AYF). The Foundation aims to encourage farmers, both in the U.S. and around the world, to grow duckweed as a cash crop and sell it into the biobased products industry.

The Duckweed Project features Greenbelt's ECOsystem model, which will convert the duckweed into bioethanol and a protein concentrate targeted as a nutritional supplement.

Greenbelt's ECOsystem technology represents about $5.0 million of the total $14.0 project budget.
