TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 23, 2021 / Toronto based CO2 GRO Inc. ("GROW") (TSXV:GROW)(OTCQB:BLONF)(Frankfurt:4021) is pleased to provide a summary of attending and presenting at the Japan Plant Factory Conference ("JPFA") held virtually from September 14th to 16th, 2021.
GROW joined the JPFA in early September 2021 after announcing its first Japanese commercial feasibility on August 16th, 2021 with one of JPFA's 221 members. GROW was invited to present its CO2 Delivery Solutions™ technology to an exclusive member only forum. Several greenhouse growers expressed interest in the technology's benefits which include increased plant production, lower CO2 use and costs, protection from pathogens, increased profitability and the reduction of a grower's ecological footprint, regardless of the type of protected grow structure.
Aaron Archibald, VP Sales and Strategic Alliances stated, "Japan was one of the first countries to develop and adopt high-tech Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) greenhouses and indoor growing facilities. Being an island exposed to long food supply chains, the government has strongly supported local produce growers and food suppliers. This JPFA virtual conference and our ongoing membership is a highly effective way to introduce our CO2 Delivery Solutions™ to Japan's 5 billion square foot protected ag market which is on par with Spain and Mexico's protected ag markets. We believe we can provide significant benefits to protected ag growers in Japan including increased yields, increased profits and the reduction of ecological footprints"
