  • (1888PressRelease) January 08, 2013 - Cape Town, South Africa -- Julian Moses, President of Symphony Trade and Investment 57 (PTY) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eccotopia Ltd., announced today that Eccotopia has decided to enter into discussion in 2013 to apply for matching funds from the South African government for its project in South Africa. Eccotopia plans to offer a lasting resolution to the mine water problem in South Africa with the use of the Megafolia trees and their profound abilities in the process of phytoremediation. Currently the government has a program that provides funds for environmental cleanup projects that provide a "green solution"; the project is estimated to create thousands of jobs in the next six to ten years. Eccotopia has had favorable preliminary discussions with the labor unions in South Africa.

    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 ( ) 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.
