Aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium (known as geoponics).
The basic principle of aeroponic growing is to grow plants suspended in a closed or semi-closed environment by spraying the plant's dangling roots and lower stem with an atomized, nutrient-rich water solution. The leaves and crown, often called the 'canopy', extend above. The roots of the plant are separated by the plant support structure. Many times closed cell foam is compressed around the lower stem and inserted into an opening in the aeroponic chamber, which decreases labor and expense; for larger plants, trellising is used to suspend the weight of vegetation and fruit. The main ecological advantages of aeroponics are the conservation of water and energy.

License Grant
Licensor of Taiwan who developed the technology, hereby grants and Licensee of Hong Kong hereby accepts a worldwide exclusive License with respect to all Intellectual Property Rights in and to the Patentable Technology.

Licensee of Hong Kong wishes to acquire the exclusive right and License to manufacture, sell and use apparatus embodying, employing and containing the Patentable Technology and for commercialization of this technology globally.

License Property
Taiwan Fast Plant Propagation Technology has developed copyrightable and patentable technologically improved aeroponic equipment to facilitate aeroponic spraying and misting. Aeroponics has contributed to advances in root morphology, nutrient uptake, drought and flood stress. This high performance of Aeroponics Systems together with formulated organic fertilizer from Taiwan Fast Plant Propagation Technology will rapidly grow plants and crops ecologically by using less water, nutrients, energy and labor while significantly shortening the cultivating cycle.

Aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium (known as geoponics. The word 'aeroponic' is derived from the Greek meanings of 'aero' (air) and 'ponos' (labour). Aeroponic culture differs from both conventional hydroponics and in-vitro (plant tissue culture) growing. Unlike hydroponics, which uses water as growing medium and essential minerals to sustain plant growth, aeroponics is conducted without a growing medium. Because water is used in aeroponics to transmit nutrients, it is sometimes considered a type of hydroponics.

The basic principle of aeroponic growing is to grow plants suspended in a closed or semi-closed environment by spraying the plant's dangling roots and lower stem with an atomized, nutrient-rich water solution. The leaves and crown, often called the 'canopy', extend above.

IPSCIO Record ID: 872

License Grant
Licensor of of the British Virgin Islands hereby grants to Licensee, for the Term a nontransferable, exclusive license to Commercialize Giant King Grass within the Licensee's Territory and to use the GKG IP and Licensor Tradename, including, without limitation, to reproduce and publicly display the Licensor Tradename and GKG Tradename solely in connection with its license to Commercialize Giant King Grass and as otherwise provided in this Agreement (the “Commercial License”).  Licensee is a stockholder of Licensor.
License Property
Licensor controls certain know-how and other rights related to Giant King Grass.

“Giant King Grass” or “GKG” shall mean the high yield, non-genetically modified, natural hybrid grass that was received and licensed by Licensor from IPA China under the License.

“Manufacturing” or “Manufacture” shall mean activities directed to planting, growing, harvesting, producing, manufacturing, processing, filling, finishing, packaging, storage and quality assurance testing of a product, plant or material, whether in bulk or finished goods or otherwise.

Giant King Grass is a high yield dedicated nonfood energy crop that can be harvested at any time in a tropical or subtropical climate. If the biofuel or power plant is co-located with a GKG plantation, the collection radius will only be about 3 miles. The high yield and logistical advantages mean that GKG can be grown and delivered to a co-located plant at a substantially lower price than currently paid for agricultural waste. The largest operating cost of a biomass power plant or biofuels plant is the cost of the fuel or feedstock, and the low cost and high quality of GKG are of major interest to these customers.

Field of Use
The Company focuses on GKG, a natural hybrid, non-genetically modified, fast-growing, perennial grass which we are growing as a dedicated energy crop that can be used to generate low carbon and renewable electricity by direct burning in a biomass power plant, and can be made into pellets that can replace some of the coal in existing power plants thus reducing carbon emissions. GKG may also be used to produce bio methane through anaerobic digestion and as a feedstock for non-food liquid biofuels such as bio ethanol and bio butanol. It can also be used as a feedstock for biochemicals and bio plastics. This perennial grass can grow up to 14 feet in height. It can be harvested at least twice a year in tropical and semitropical areas with a yield of up to 375 metric tons per hectare (freshly cut, referred to as wet yield). We believe that GKG has the highest yield of any crop. Note that one hectare (ha) is 10,000 square meters and equal to 2.47 US acres or approximately the size of two US football fields.
