Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. Finalizes State of California Licensing Requirements
for Sale of BAM-FX™ for Agricultural Purposes
Boca Raton, Florida— (May 29, 2014) – Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. (ZGSI or “the Company”) (Pink Sheets: ZGSI) announced today that it has completed the requirements necessary to license its agricultural product, BAM-FX for sale and distribution in the state of California. The Company is continuing to work with the California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) on label registration and organic certification in order to commence sales. BAM-FX, the Company’s ionic, micronutrient and mineral delivery system for plants, was originally developed for use in the United States Space Program and is now being applied to agriculture here on Earth.
The Company has been conducting field trials on a variety of crops in laboratory and academic settings as well as in field applications on grower/end-user crops. The preliminary results of these trials have confirmed the positive data we had anticipated. Further field trials are currently underway or planned on additional crops in various locations throughout the United States and other countries.
Mr. Don Henry, Government and Technical Liaison to ZGSI and former Director of the CDFA, stated, “From my perspective as someone who has been involved in agricultural matters for over 30 years, a product that has demonstrated its unique ability to systemically deliver micronutrients and minerals throughout a plant at the cellular level may provide solutions to many critical issues facing agriculture today.” Mr. Henry further stated, “The completion of the licensing requirements of CDFA allows the Company to move toward the commercial sale of BAM-FX in the California agricultural market.”
ZGSI Establishes Presence at Harwell Oxford's Satellite Applications Catapult Facility
Boca Raton, Florida— (February 3, 2014) – Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. (ZGSI or “the Company”) (Pink Sheets: ZGSI) announced today that it has established a wholly owned subsidiary, Zero Gravity Solutions Ltd (ZGSL), to service the Company’s operations and interests in the European Union (EU) and other international markets.
As of 16 December 2013, ZGSI is a 100% owner of ZGSL. ZGSL has established an office at Harwell Oxford's Satellite Applications Catapult facility at the Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom (UK), a major space, biotech and life science development site in the UK. Harwell Oxford is becoming known as Space Central with the European Space Agency building a 50,000 square foot new building on this site. The campus already has 150 companies located there employing 4,500 people. This is estimated to expand to 20,000 over the next five years. Because of the resistance to the use of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) in food in Europe, we anticipate the EU to become a primary early adopter initially of our BAM-FX™ product and subsequently of our International Space Station (ISS) based plant stem cell technology. The European agricultural market is a USD300 billion/year enterprise as compared to the USA, which is USD175 billion/year.
