Cape Town, South Africa -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/06/2013 -- Julian Moses, president of Symphony Trade and Investment 57 (Pty) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eccotopia Ltd., http://www.eccotopia.com/ , has announced that Eccotopia and Pacific Tree West, in joint venture for the marketing, development and implementation of Megafolia© tree plantations worldwide, are planning further development and considering various locations within the Republic of Botswana for their projects.
The Republic of Botswana is a landlocked country located in southern Africa. Botswana is flat, and up to 70% is covered by the Kalahari Desert. A mid-sized country of just over two million people, Botswana is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, and was one of the poorest countries in Africa when it gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1966.
Botswana has since transformed itself, becoming one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, with mineral production currently a growing commercial resource. By one estimate, it has the fourth highest gross national income at purchasing power parity in Africa.
The Megafolia© tree has been designed to provide a particularly broad variety of uses including the phytoremediation of ground water and topsoil. Megafolia© trees are also an excellent source for the production of biofuel, the production of timber from which a wide variety of timber products can be developed, biomass-to-energy production, as well as for carbon sequestration. The broad range of uses for this fast-growing tree will enable the formation of a wide variety of new job possibilities in any regions in which Megafolia© plantations are established.
Upon the successful implementation of projects, Eccotopia, founded and developed on the basis of over 30 years of research and development in the fields of forestry, farming, business and agricultural investments with a focus on sustainability, will have the exclusive marketing and development rights in specified geographic territories or regions, including the Republic of South Africa.
