Initial Test Site Chosen for Eccotopia Megafolia© Plantation

Eccotopia has agreed to the development, implementation, and management of Megafolia© tree plantations in South Africa, identifying land use, as well as the approximate number of local jobs to be created.

Cape Town, South Africa, March 01, 2013 -- Julian Moses, president of Symphony Trade and Investment 57 (PTY) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eccotopia Ltd., http://www.eccotopia.com , announced today that Eccotopia has secured an initial test site in the Republic of South Africa. Phase 1 of the initiative will include implementation of a Site and Feasibility Study/Analysis that will identify land and plantation use, the approximate number of local jobs to be created, as well as the establishment of a greenhouse and propagation facility.

The project goal is job creation through the development, implementation and management of Eccotopia's Megafolia© ( http://www.eccotopia.com ) tree plantations for a variety of uses including Phytoremediation of ground water and topsoil, biofuel production, timber production, biomass-to-energy production and carbon sequestration. Also, the wide variety of timber products available from Eccotopia's Megafolia© trees are remarkably able to ultimately provide numerous new job possibilities in the region.

The establishment of Eccotopia's Megafolia© tree plantations can utilize waste mining water as the trees grow, creating a solution for mining waste water issues. Eccotopia's Megafolia© trees are uniquely suited for the process of phytoremediation, as they are able to flourish utilizing polluted mining water which is an abundant by-product of the mining industry.
