Biofuels & Energy selects site in Center, Colorado for SLV Biopro Project
PASO ROBLES, CA – January 24, 2018 – Greenbelt Resources Corporation (OTC: GRCO) (Greenbelt), the developer and producer of a sustainable ECOsystem model that transforms waste into revenue generating bioproducts, today announced that Biofuels and Energy, LLC (B&E), a New Mexico based project development company planning to leverage and advance Greenbelt’s proprietary ECOsystem model for its SLV Biopro Project, has selected a site location in the San Luis Valley region of Colorado – Center, Colorado – on which to locate project operations.
“Thanks to the local Economic Development Corporation, B&E is pleased to have been offered and has selected an excellent site with the requisite infrastructure for our anchor project in Colorado,” said Richard Mason with B&E. “Consisting of seven acres with over 10,000 sq. ft. of warehouse and office space, the property is strategically located in the heart of San Luis Valley potato and barley processing industry, conveniently situated within three miles of a global equipment engineering and refurbishing operation projected to be one of our construction subcontractors and a convenient nearby maintenance resource.”
“Greenbelt shares B&E’s vision for two “sister” biorefineries, each strategically in different “feedstock baskets” to serve the increasing demand in the Colorado market starting with this anchor site in the San Luis Valley,” said Greenbelt CEO Darren Eng. “This initial location in Center, Colorado has all the necessary site characteristics to efficiently deploy Greenbelt’s ECOsystem model, including such features as space for a duckweed covered discharge pond and proximity to specific feedstocks which would enable new high value bioproducts to be produced.”
Both Greenbelt and B&E appreciate the support solicited by regional economic development authorities who assisted in the distribution of the Request for Proposal, including but not limited to the Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade, Saguache County Sustainable Environment & Economic Development and the San Luis Valley Development Resources Group.
SLV Biopro was announced earlier this year as the first of B&E’s projects committed to using Greenbelt’s ECOsystem technology to convert agricultural waste into various bio-based products such as bioethanol and high protein animal feed. Other B&E projects currently in development will be located in eastern Colorado and New York/Pennsylvania.
