Toronto based CO2 GRO Inc. ("GROW") (TSXV:GROW) (OTCQB:BLONF) (Frankfurt:4021) is pleased to announce the commencement of a CO2 Delivery Solutions™ commercial feasibility at a significant Canadian Cannabis Licensed Producer ("the LP").
The feasibility will run for up to one year with an option to expand a commercial installation for the entire production area of the facility at the conclusion of the feasibility or sooner. The objectives of the feasibility are to increase production and revenue while reducing the cost per gram of Cannabis produced at the facility.
The LP currently employs atmospheric CO2 enrichment year-round through purchased CO2 bulk tanks. However, during the warmer months from spring through fall, the facility requires heat venting which makes increasing CO2 levels in the grow areas above ambient conditions very difficult. By employing CO2 Delivery Solutions™, more CO2 can be delivered to the plant despite heat venting, resulting in not only increased plants yields but also a significant reduction in CO2 gas use and the facility's ecological footprint.
Aaron Archibald VP, Sales and Strategic Alliances commented, "The LP is focused on reducing their ecological footprint as well as increasing production and profitability. Our CO2 Delivery Solutions™ technology's ability to deliver significant improvements in yields, reduced cycle times and suppression of pathogens is well documented and increasingly well known in the Canadian Cannabis industry. We have long maintained our CO2 Delivery Solutions™ technology can produce significant reductions in CO2 use and expenses in addition to reducing the ecological footprint of a grower. We look forward to a successful feasibility and hopefully a commercial installation in the near future."
