CO2 GRO Inc. announces technology trial project in Mexico

A CO2 Delivery Solutions system will be installed for a technology trial (formerly termed ‘commercial feasibility’) at Bresca Hortalizas’ new 10-acre greenhouse

CO2 GRO Inc (TSX-V:GROW, OTCQB:BLONF). announced its first Mexico project with marketing partner Rancho Nexo.

A CO2 Delivery Solutions system will be installed for a technology trial (formerly termed “commercial feasibility”) at Bresca Hortalizas SPR de RL’s new 10-acre greenhouse in the state of Puebla.

The Bresca greenhouse was built in 2019 for growing specialty cherry tomatoes. Of particular interest to Bresca in this trial is assessing yield improvement as the climate is too hot for gassing CO2 and assessing the suppression of powdery mildew.

The trial will last for at least six months on a portion of the high-tech greenhouse (6,042 square feet).

“We are delighted to start our first Mexico greenhouse project with our Mexico Marketing Partner Rancho Nexo,” said Aaron Archibald, CO2 GRO’s vice president of sales and strategic alliances, in a strategic alliance.

“The vast majority of Mexico’s 6 billion square foot protected ag facilities cannot economically use CO2 gassing but they can use our technology to deliver CO2 in mist form for enriching their plant growth while suppressing micro-pathogens.”

CO2 GRO’s proprietary CO2 Delivery Solutions technology is revolutionizing the global estimated 800 billion square foot protected grower market. This is comprised of 600 billion square feet of fruits and vegetables, an estimated 100 billion square feet of floriculture and another estimated 100 billion square feet of crops such as medicinal plants, citrus tree seedlings, and other non-food varieties.

O2 Delivery Solutions creates a dissolved CO2 solution that is misted onto plants grown in greenhouses and protected grower facilities globally providing growers with multiple significant benefits.

Growers that cannot atmospherically enrich their facilities with CO2 (gassing) can now realize yield increases of up to 30% and up to a doubling of gross profits, while suppressing the development of micro-pathogens such as E.coli and powdery mildew leading to healthier crops. Greenhouses and indoor facilities that currently do employ CO2 gassing can save up to 90% on their CO2 consumption, thereby reducing their production costs and CO2 enrichment emissions.
