Eco Allies™

Renewable and Sustainable Proprietary Technologies for Climate Change Mitigation

Introduction

Eco Allies was created to pursue opportunities in climate change mitigation by utilizing its Proprietary Technologies and Capabilities for cleaning the air, ground, and water. Our products and operations can eliminate or reduce, and also have the ability to offset environmental damage caused by what is making our world become hotter. Eco Allies' products and activities offer ways to mitigate that damage in a significant and scalable way.

Our proprietary technologies are not high-tech, complicated methodologies. They involve nature’s own technology, growing trees. To do this, we plan on planting and raising our proprietary, fast growth trees. Added to our trees are the capabilities of the patented biochar, used in Eco Allies biochar products, produced from our trees.

Eco Allies’ proprietary tree is the SuperGreenTree™. SuperGreenTrees™ (“SGTs”) are Paulownia trees. Paulownia trees have historically been known for their fast-growing capabilities.

Upon harvest SGT's make a high quality biochar. SGT wood can also be used to make furniture and building products like trims and facings. SGT's have multiple uses, all while having taken significant amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as they grow.

Eco Allies’ trademark application to register its name for itself and its products is currently being processed by the USPTO.

Problem

problem

NASA data shows that 2019 was the warmest year on record. Climate change primarily results from carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions deriving from activities such as:

  • Burning fossil fuels
  • Deforestation
  • Animals raised for food (i.e., methane)
  • Land-fill methane emissions

Solution

Eco Allies is focused on removing greenhouse gases by growing its proprietary trees developed by an affiliate 10 years ago, which breathe carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen as part of the natural cycle of life. Our SuperGreenTrees™ (SGT) are:

  • Fast-growing
  • Simply produced products that can be scaled to achieve ever increasing benefits
  • Mitigate climate change in a profitable, beneficial manner that provides Equity for Life™
  • Sequesters large amounts of carbon dioxide, helping combat the global warming crisis
  • Can be mulched and mixed with animal effluent to reduce/eliminate methane from effluent ponds to provide a cleaner energy source
solution

SuperGreenTrees™ also make great biochar, a highly adsorbent, specially-produced charcoal with unique properties originally used as a soil amendment (The ancient Aztecs used charcoal and compost 2000 years ago to amend the poor soils of the Amazon.).

Biochar is a high margin product that can be produced from hemp, timber, old railroad ties, construction and landfill wood waste, and SuperGreenTrees™. Biochar is extremely valuable due to its many unique capabilities:

  • Soil reclamation from once sterile ground so it can support plant life
  • As a soil amendment it reduces water needs and so water usage
  • Filtration and clean-up of oil and gas fields
  • Sequesters atmospheric carbon in the soil where carbon enhances growth

Eco Allies’ plans to build a plant to create its own biochar, with SGTs grown next to the plant. The plant will be the result of a joint venture agreement with BioChar Now, LLC. Biochar produced with Biochar Now’s patented process has been proven to stop algae blooms that cause Red Tide, the scourge of communities along the Florida coast and in ponds and waterways everywhere.

Biochar has a wide variety of environmentally friendly revenue streams available. These include:

  • Mercury removal from smoke stacks at coal fired plants
  • Waterway restoration
  • Plastic lumber component
  • Specialty agriculture (hemp, fruits, vegetables)
  • Fertilizer pellets component
  • Activated carbon replacement

The USDA has approved our biochar as a livestock feed additive. When Eco Allies biochar becomes used as an additive in livestock feed, it could reduce the methane livestock excretes by up to 25%.

Business Model

Eco Allies’ affiliates have grown small plots of SuperGreenTrees™ over a number of years. With Eco Allies’ resources and expertise, it can grow 400 SuperGreenTrees™ per acre. Plans are to to grow 5 million SuperGreenTrees™ from its current (and renewable) inventory of 5 million SGT seeds it has available now to plant. With five million SGT’s grown, significant amounts of carbon dioxide could be sequestered each year.

Each ton sequestered can generate a carbon credit worth from $5 to $10. Recently President Biden said he wants the government to buy one billion tons of carbon offset credits at $20 per ton, making the carbon and methane offset credit market stronger. Recently, the Biden Administration committed $2 trillion to climate change mitigation.
