WALNUT, Calif., Oct. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VIASPACE Inc. (VSPC) today reported that Dr. Kevin Schewe, has highlighted his second year as Chairman of the Board and reviewed the major accomplishments of VIASPACE during the last twelve months. He discusses the direction of the company and the pathway to continued corporate growth, profitability and increasing shareholder value.
Dr. Schewe started, "Two years ago, on October 2, 2012, I became Chairman of the VIASPACE Board of Directors. In our press release that day, I said, 'Our shareholders will see a "new company" focused on providing tangible results and timely information. We want to attract new shareholders from around the world and reward our many long-term loyal shareholders with a company keen on growth and increasing shareholder value. Our shareholders will not have to wait long to see a difference in the direction of this company'. Since that time, we have kept our investor audience and shareholders regularly informed with timely press releases and social media outreach through our website and Facebook page. We have stayed keen on growth and Giant King Grass (GKG) is being grown in California, Hawaii, St. Croix U.S. Virgin Islands, Nicaragua, South Africa, China, Myanmar, Pakistan, Guyana, Jamaica and the Philippines. We have more new geographic sites growing Giant King Grass to announce in the near future. Developing and signing new contracts with customers, obtaining phytosanitary certificates and the required import/export approvals, harvesting and properly shipping the Giant King Grass seedlings, starting a propagation nursery to expand to a GKG plantation for biofuel feedstock and/or animal feed all takes due time, labor, effort and financing to accomplish. All of these things are a prerequisite to increasing shareholder value and we have stayed keenly focused on our plans in this regard.
WALNUT, Calif., Oct. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VIASPACE Inc. (VSPC) today reported that Giant King Grass previously released from quarantine in Hawaii is successfully growing at the Hawaii Agriculture Research Center (HARC) on Oahu. HARC, which originally began in 1882 as a trade organization of the sugarcane industry, today has the mission to support a viable agricultural sector in Hawaii by researching and applying relevant science and technology to achieve practical solutions and by identifying new agricultural opportunities.
The US Department of Agriculture previously approved VIASPACE's proprietary Giant KingTM Grass for distribution throughout the United States, and has approved it for export to many countries. However, Hawaii has additional strict regulations for importation of plants. Hawaii required that Giant King Grass be grown and monitored in their quarantine facility for 12 months. The quarantine period was completed and Giant King Grass was cleared by officials in Hawaii and released. All Giant King Grass in Hawaii must be propagated from the plants that were released from quarantine.
