VIASPACE Inc., a clean energy company providing products and technology for renewable and alternative energy solutions that reduce or eliminate dependence on fossil and high-pollutant energy sources, recently announced that the company’s top executives are touring Europe, India and Asia to hold talks with potential customers and partners seeking new and more reliable supplies of biomass feedstock for their green energy operations and projects.

In Europe, the company’s top executives met with potential pellet customers, biogas equipment suppliers, biogas electricity generators and potential partners for power plants and pellet mill projects. In India, where the demand for clean electricity is rapidly growing, talks were held in five cities where companies that own biomass power plants need a dedicated energy crop for fuel due to issues with current sources of biomass. In Singapore, the company discussed how Giant King Grass biomass projects can solve supply problems with other types of biomass now being used to generate electricity and produce pellets in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.

Dr. Carl Kukkonen, chief executive of VIASPACE Inc., commented, “Our presentations of Giant King Grass and its potential have generated tremendous interest and positive responses from a host of biomass energy producers and suppliers.” Dr. Kukkonen continued, “Numerous companies have invested heavily in large plantations of Jatropha for biodiesel, but these investments have not yet produced good results. As a result, many of these companies are looking for alternative uses of their land, including a more efficient biomass crop, and Giant King Grass can provide the solution.”
