"In addition to closing this round of financing we are also pleased to announce that we have initiated discussions with logging companies and state actors active in Africa interested in possible strategic development of our 3rd generation biomass gasification technology." said Gorden Glenn, President and CEO of Minnova Corp. "The equatorial forests of central and north Africa (natural forests and plantations) represent key national assets and legal and regulated timber and logging industries are an important contributor to national economies. Many logging operations and rural communities are reliant on small gasoline and diesel generators or have no consistent power supply all. Our initial discussions are focused on providing renewable, base load electrical power, utilizing harvest residues (branches, barks, stumps, etc.). This gasification application, would prioritize renewable power generation and green hydrogen would be a secondary revenue stream. That said its future regional market potential is viewed very positively by state actors and international agencies focused on mitigating climate change through increased use of renewable energy. We intend to work closely with local and national governments, international development and climate change mitigation partners, and the communities themselves to enhance sustainable forest management practices that will reduce uncontrolled deforestation. We hope to advance current discussions to formal Letter of Intent(s) or Memorandum of Understanding(s) in the coming weeks as we continue to our global growth and development efforts."
