The biomass does not compost quickly due to its composition while sending it to landfill creates methane, a very harmful greenhouse gas

Progressive Plant Solutions Inc. (CVE:PLAN) revealed it has filed a United States Provisional Patent Application for "pelleted fertilizer product incorporating biomass as a binder".

In a statement, PLAN said it was aware that the amount of biomass generated as a waste product when hemp and cannabis are grown to produce cannabinoids is increasing rapidly in North America.

This material does not compost quickly due to its composition while sending it to landfill creates methane, a very harmful greenhouse gas.

PLAN said it believes this biomass would be an excellent candidate as a binder for various minerals that are used as fertilizers and soil amenders.

The group said it has produced pellets using waste cannabis biomass to bind various minerals and these pellets possessed good durability.

The inventors include two directors of PLAN, Steve Harpur and Edward Beggs, and two employees of InnoTech Alberta, Earl Jenson and Ataullah Mohammed, and all the inventors have assigned their rights to PLAN.

Steve Harpur, CEO of PLAN commented: "I am very excited that our team created a value-added product out of a waste stream. PLAN received input from industry seeking a fertilizer pellet which contains carbon as a binder for minerals used in agriculture. Creating a pellet as a delivery mechanism was desirable to farmers as pellets generate less dust than powders when applied to farmers' fields.”

PLAN is a Canadian-based mineral exploration company, with its flagship Z1 Zeolite Quarry in Cache Creek, British Columbia, which is committed to using mineral resources to provide solutions for a livable planet.
