In addition to the environmental project cleanup system, the company will be offering a green energy solution starting in the 5th year of the project. Besides being an excellent natural resource for the process of phytoremediation, the fast-growing Megafolia trees are a rapid producer of biomass, offering the opportunity to produce both ethanol and diesel for trucks. While the first phase of the project will be to demonstrate that Eccotopia ( http://www.eccotopia.com ) has a solution for the disposal of the large quantity of mining waste water, the secondary benefits will be the production of “green fuel” for the vast needs of Southern Africa. Initial plans call for the hiring of 20 to 30 employees which will be trained the first year to be the future leaders in the rapid expansion of the project.
Eccotopia has developed a number of significant strategic alliances with environmental industry partners. We offer not only innovative, patented technologies of our own, but also an unmatched ability to provide experienced, objective third-party testing and evaluation of new technologies and cutting-edge approaches to site remediation, decentralization, forestation programs and pollution control.
We understand the dynamics of combining ecological and environmental improvements with industrialization and profitability. We have begun to explore linkages between ecology and economics, looking to create new kinds of partnerships and enterprise out of environmental protection and restoration initiatives. Eccotopia's principal commitments are to our partners and to the environment.
Eccotopia, Ltd. is a BVI Corporation domiciled in the Republic of South Africa.
