VIASPACE Inc. and its renewable energy subsidiary VIASPACE Green Energy Inc. announced this morning that their Green Log™ brand fireplace and campfire logs were exhibited at the National Hardware Show held in Las Vegas, Nevada over the weekend. The National Hardware Show is an annual gathering of buyers and sellers in specialties such as hardware tools, lawn and garden, and outdoor living. Many of the major players in the fire log industry also had exhibits at the show.

Chief Executive Carl Kukkonen stated, “The Green Log is a product that we have spent a lot of time and effort in developing. We believe the Green Log is the most eco-friendly fire log product on the market, and at the trade show, we were able to educate people about the many benefits of the Green Log.”

Mr. Sung Chang, President of VIASPACE Green Energy commented, “The National Hardware Show allowed us to get the Green Log name out there. Many prospective customers were at the trade show along with our competitors in the fire log industry. From what was seen at the trade show, our competitors have already identified VIASPACE as a viable contender in the fire log industry. Potential buyers of the Green Log have expressed interest in our product and we are following up with them.”

The Green Log is VIASPACE’s first commercial product made with Giant King Grass. A renewable and sustainable product as opposed to other artificial fire logs that are made with petroleum-based materials or trees that take decades to fully grow, this product takes only 3 minutes to fully light, but burns for up to 5 hours.
