Eccotopia Finalizing Initial Stages of Venture with Pacific Tree West


Cape Town, South Africa -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/14/2013 -- Julian Moses, president of Symphony Trade and Investment 57 (Pty) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eccotopia Ltd., , has announced that  Eccotopia and Pacific Tree West, in joint venture for the marketing, development and implementation of Megafolia© tree plantations worldwide, are considering various locations for their projects throughout the Republic of South Africa.

The Megafolia© tree has been designed to provide a particularly broad variety of uses including the phytoremediation of ground water and topsoil, 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 carbon sequestration.  This broad range of uses for the fast-growing Megafolia© tree will enable the formation of a wide variety of new job possibilities in any regions in which the plantations are established.

In South Africa, the ultimate goal of the projects is the creation of non-mining jobs through the development of Megafolia© tree plantations. The Megafolia© tree has been shown to be uniquely able to utilize waste mining water as the trees are cultivated, creating a welcome solution for the inherent mining waste water issues throughout the Republic of South Africa.

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, to include the Republic of South Africa.
