PLAN Signs Agreement with University of Alberta on Developing Fly Ash Alternative

PLAN Signs Agreement with University of Alberta on Developing Fly Ash Alternative Progressive Planet Inc.

DECEMBER 9, 2019 – VANCOUVER, B.C. – PROGRESSIVE PLANET SOLUTIONS INC. (PLAN: TSX-V) (“Progressive Planet” or “PLAN”) announces that it has signed an agreement with the University of Alberta to modify the rheology of its zeolite from the Z-1 Zeolite Quarry so that it possesses similar rheology to commercially available fly ash. The University will immediately commence this work with the project ending on April 30, 2020. The value of the contract is $20,000.

The Government of Canada has  mandated an accelerated, nationwide phase-out of coal-fired power by the end of December 2029. Class F fly ash used in Canada comes primarily from the burning of coal at multiple power plants in Alberta and Saskatchewan. With this phase out, new supplementary cementing materials will need to fill this void.

The project will be undertaken under the direction of Dr. Vivek Bindiganavile. Dr. Bindiganavile received his PhD in Civil Engineering Materials from the University of British Columbia in 2003. Dr. Bindiganavile has decades of experience in cement and concrete research and has been published in many journals and presented at many conferences as can be seen at

https://www.ualberta.ca/engineering/faculty/vivek-bindiganavile

“I visited the Z1 Quarry in BC in the summer of 2019 and brought some samples back to our laboratory. Over the past year,  my research team has conducted a preliminary examination on Z1 for its chemical composition and physical characteristics. Based on the chemical analysis, we believe that the Z1 has potential for use as a supplementary cementing material. We have now embarked on this collaborative research partnership to address the impact on fresh concrete rheology when up to 20% of Portland cement is replaced with the same weight of Z1 Zeolite.”

“We have spent the last year conducting ASTM testing on Z1 Zeolite and one challenge to bring this material to market relates to it possessing similar rheology to fly ash. Rheology is often referred to as “slump” in the concrete industry. Ready mix cement with fly ash added to it flows very easily and we are seeking to modify our zeolite so that fresh concrete which includes our zeolite flows in a similar fashion.” stated Steve Harpur, CEO of PLAN.

PLAN also has a right to earn a 100% interest in the Z2 Zeolite Property near Falkland, BC.  Progressive Planet is committed to using mineral resources to provide solutions for a livable planet.

PLAN Files Provisional Patent

PLAN Files Provisional Patent 150 150 Progressive Planet Inc.

October 15, 2019, VANCOUVER, B.C. – PROGRESSIVE PLANET SOLUTIONS INC. (PLAN-TSX:V) (“PLAN” or the “Company”) announces that it has filed a United States Provisional Patent Application on October 11, 2019 for “pelleted fertilizer product incorporating biomass as a binder.”

PLAN 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 believed this biomass would be an excellent candidate as a binder for various minerals that are used as fertilizers and soil amenders. PLAN 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. All inventors assigned their rights to PLAN.

“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,” stated Steve Harpur, CEO of PLAN.

PLAN Announces Option of 2nd Zeolite Property in BC

PLAN Announces Option of 2nd Zeolite Property in BC 150 150 Progressive Planet Inc.

October 04, 2019, VANCOUVER, B.C. – PROGRESSIVE PLANET SOLUTIONS INC. (PLAN-TSX:V) (“PLAN” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has signed an option agreement with Jeremy Marlow on a zeolite property near Falkland, BC.

To maintain and exercise the option granted, the Company will pay Mr. Marlow a total amount of $26,000 over a period of 36 months, issue a total of 500,000 common shares over a period of 36 months, and incur a total of $200,000 in exploration expenditures on the zeolite property over a period of 36 months, commencing on the date that the Company receives all necessary prior approvals from the TSXV.  Additionally, Mr. Marlow will retain a royalty of $8.00 per tonne of mineral products produced from the property, subject to a 50% buyback right in consideration of $75,000.  All shares issued under the option agreement will be subject to a 4 month hold period.

PLAN optioned this property after conducting surface sampling which confirmed the presence of zeolite on the property through XRD analysis. In addition, engineers working with PLAN to develop supplementary cementing materials out of zeolite conducted Strength Activity Index tests (ASTM C618) on two samples taken from the property and received results of 110% and 103% versus a straight-cement control mixture. This indicates the potential for improved concrete strength when utilizing this zeolite and compares well with commercially available fly ash.

The option agreement remains subject to the Company receiving all necessary prior approvals from the TSX Venture Exchange.

“PLAN is currently seeking to increase its zeolite assets in light of the new market for zeolite to denature cannabis and hemp after cannabinoid extraction. I personally took the samples from the property which we tested, and I am keen to see this property systematically explored. We are naming this property the Z-2.  We are excited about its proximity and easy access. It is approximately a 45-minute drive from our facilities in Spallumcheen, BC,” stated Steve Harpur, CEO.

“It was a pleasure to work with the management team of PLAN while they did due diligence on the Z-2 before signing the option agreement. During multiple site visits by their CEO and geologist, their team was professional, and I am excited to see this property further explored,” stated Jeremy Marlow.

Kitty Litter vs. Zeolite – Denaturing Cannabis

Kitty Litter vs. Zeolite – Denaturing Cannabis Progressive Planet Inc.

According to André Gagnon, media relations advisor for Health Canada, “Cannabis is considered to be destroyed when it is altered or denatured (stripped of its natural qualities) to such an extent that its consumption and propagation are rendered impossible or improbable.”

 

So, how can Cannabis LPs denature their cannabis waste?

Up until recently, many companies have been using Kitty Litter to do this, but there is a better, more natural way. Zeolite!

 

Why is Zeolite better?

First an foremost, cost. Zeolite can be purchased in bulk (you can literally get it delivered by the tonne), as opposed to heading to a big box store, which typically includes sending your own staff to do so, increasing cost in both staffing and product.

 

Zeolite’s Compostable!

Zeolite is 100% compostable and environmentally friendly, unlike kitty litter which can include questionable ingredients that shouldn’t be put back into the soil.  Cannabis denatured by zeolite makes for an excellent addition to soil adding carbon, nitrogen, and trace elements, continuing the circle of life.

 

Zeolite is Ecofriendly

Progressive Planet uses substantially less packaging for its zeolite than kitty litter. We also offer re-useable bins, and we’ll clean them for you too!
