Sep 22, 2014 VIASPACE Announces Giant King Grass Developments and Progress in Hawaii (Part 1)
http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/VSPC/news

 
WALNUT, Calif., September 22, 2014 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- VIASPACE Inc. (OTC: VSPC) today reported that CEO, Dr. Carl Kukkonen, met with potential Giant King Grass customers in Hawaii. Dr. Kukkonen also attended the Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit held in Honolulu September 15-17, where he gave an invited presentation at a special conference track on Agricultural Innovation.

On March 17, 2014, VIASPACE announced that Giant King Grass was released from the mandatory one-year quarantine on Hawaii after the Hawaii Department of Agriculture found it to be free of pests and disease. Giant King Grass is currently growing well in Hawaii, and an update will be provided in a future press release (Part II).

Potential customers included Hawaiian businessmen working to revive agriculture on Hawaii, and also to produce clean energy. Hawaii once had a thriving cattle business. At this time, cattle born in Hawaii are mostly shipped to the mainland for growth and finishing. Pig farming is also important on Hawaii, but much of the big food needs to be imported from the mainland. There were once 12 sugar mills in Hawaii. Now there is one sugar plantation and mill located on Maui, and substantial plantation lands lie fallow. Most of the pineapple business has left Hawaii. There is significant underemployment in the agriculture industry.

Dr. Kukkonen reported, "There are business people in Hawaii now working to revive the cattle and dairy industries. Today most cattle are put out to pasture on large ranches which have local grasses such as Guinea grass. The land can support about 50 cattle per 100 acres. Giant King Grass with 10 - 15% protein is higher quality than Guinea grass that has about 5% protein. Giant King Grass also has much higher yield. With proper agriculture, Giant King Grass can support about 400 cattle or dairy cows per 100 acres. Giant King Grass can also be an important part of the diet for sheep, goats, horses and pigs. I believe that Giant King Grass can play an important role in animal feed in Hawaii and other tropical and subtropical regions."

Hawaii has the highest electricity prices in the US. Much of the electricity in Hawaii is produced from oil which is imported and expensive. Wind and solar electricity are intermittently available and Hawaii has difficulty in providing the backup power which is needed to provide consistent levels of electricity. Currently each Hawaiian island has its own separate grid and there is no undersea power line to make a statewide grid.

Kukkonen continued, "I heard a presentation on an ambitious concept to pump water uphill to a dam during times when there is excess solar or wind electricity. The plan is to then let the water run downhill and produce hydroelectricity when the wind is not blowing or during the nighttime. This is certainly possible, but growing Giant King Grass to fuel a reliable and 24/7 biomass power plant is a simpler and lower cost solution. Pumping water uphill to a dam is the only way to store electricity today on a large scale. It may be feasible in very special areas, but Giant King Grass clean renewable electricity should have much broader applicability. There was also a detailed concept to bring in containers of liquefied natural gas to the big island of Hawaii to replace oil for producing reliable electricity. This is feasible and would be a bit less expensive than oil and natural gas produces less carbon dioxide than oil. Both of these examples illustrate how difficult and expensive it is to produce electricity on island nations."

"I met with parties that are trying to develop biomass power plants using anaerobic digestion to produce clean bio electricity. They were interested in Giant King Grass as a dedicated energy crop. VIASPACE has just finished another round of extensive testing of Giant King Grass for anaerobic digestion and it is an excellent feedstock to produce biogas. We have action items to provide data to these potential customers."

Kukkonen also met with potential customers from other countries in the Asia-Pacific region. There are opportunities for Giant King Grass on islands like Guam.

VIASPACE Chairman, Dr. Kevin Schewe, concluded, "We have been very busy in Hawaii since our Giant King Grass was successfully released from quarantine there earlier this year. Giant King Grass is now growing incredibly well in Hawaii and we will be specifically discussing this progress soon. There is a picture of our Hawaiian Giant King Grass standing at our booth at the Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit and posted on our VIASPACE Facebook page. It takes time to develop a brand new plant/biomass platform and animal feed source in Hawaii, but we have now passed the major hurdles there and are ready for primetime. We have the most perfect solution for renewable biomass energy and animal feed for Hawaii and we are pursuing our business opportunities there."

Sep 15, 2014 Harmony Gold Mining Company CEO Announces Giant King Grass Bioenergy Project in South Africa with Harmony's Fourth-Quarter Results
http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/VSPC/news

 
WALNUT, Calif., Sept. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- VIASPACE Inc. (OTC: VSPC) today reported more details on the Giant King Grass bioenergy project being pursued by Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited of South Africa. Below is an article by Chantelle Kotze in the Mining Weekly, which is available at http://www.miningweekly.com/article/r47-million-bio-energy-project-under-development-by-harmony-2014-08-22.

"Gold miner Harmony Gold is implementing a R47-million bioenergy pilot-scale project involving the growing of bio crops, namely giant king grass and sugarbeet, on mine-impacted land and tailings in the Free State.

The project aims to simultaneously rehabilitate the impacted land in a bid to clean up the land and return it to an agricultural state.

Speaking at Harmony Gold's fourth- quarter results presentation, held in Johannesburg earlier this month, CEO Graham Briggs said that, while renewable-energy applications in mining were not new, combining renewables with bioenergy and land rehabilitation was and that was what made this project unique.

The bio crops will be used as feedstock to generate natural gas. The natural gas will then be used as a substitute for fossil fuels in the company's Harmony 1 metallurgical plant, where it will be burnt in place of polyfuel in the gold elution circuits.

As part of this process, Harmony Gold will also convert its electrical and polyfuel methods of heating the water needed in the elution process to biogas heating.

Phase 1 of the project aims to deliver 71 000 GJ within the first 18 months, with production being ramped up to 187 000 GJ within the first 36 months.

'This project aims to turn mine-impacted land to account by creating a value-added use for it and, in so doing, promote skills development and job creation for communities and ensure a sustainable legacy in the Free State,' said Briggs.

One of the main benefits of this project, as noted by Briggs, is the reduction in the mine's carbon footprint, which can, in turn, reduce carbon taxes that the mine may potentially incur."

Harmony is the third largest gold mining company in South Africa, and the 5th largest gold producer in the world. Harmony is a publicly listed company on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, the Berlin Stock Exchange, and the New York Stock Exchange.

VIASPACE is working with Harmony and Selectra, a pioneer in the biogas industry in South Africa on this project.

VIASPACE CEO, Dr. Carl Kukkonen, stated, "This project has demonstrated that Giant King Grass can grow in a very difficult and contaminated environment with no organic matter in the ground We believe that Giant King Grass can be used to remediate a wide range of contaminated soil and to make it productive. This is another business opportunity for VIASPACE. The Giant King Grass grown on this particular contaminated land may be contaminated itself, so it is not suitable for animal feed or burning which may put the contaminants into the atmosphere. However, anaerobic digestion is perfect because it produces clean biogas and the contaminants are collected in the digestate. We welcome others interested in biological remediation to contact VIASPACE."

VIASPACE Chairman, Dr. Kevin Schewe, commented, "We are in good company with Harmony and Selectra in South Africa. The potential commercial applications for Giant King Grass now include the dual purpose of remediating contaminated soil to produce biomass energy, biomass electricity production by anaerobic digestion or direct combustion, pellets to co-fire with coal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, production of biofuels and using GKG for animal feed. This is truly an exciting time for VIASPACE and its shareholders as we simultaneously build multiple lines of business and proceed to commercialize Giant King Grass on a global basis."

Sep 8, 2014 VIASPACE Giant King(TM) Grass Shows High Yield at University of California Site in Imperial Valley
http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/VSPC/news

 
WALNUT, Calif., Sept. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- VIASPACE Inc. (OTCQB: VSPC) today announced that the first harvest of Giant King Grass in the Imperial Valley of California, was completed on September 2, 2014.

At the University of California site in Holtville, California, two planting methods were compared. One is to plant single nodes that each grow into individual plants, and the other method is to plant whole Giant King Grass stalks continuously end to end similar to the way that sugarcane is planted. The first method results in individual plants that each have some space around them. The whole stalk method results in a dense linear row of plants each spaced about 6 inches apart.

Two different harvesting times are also being tested. The first is to harvest at about 15 - 18 feet tall at about six months old for bioenergy applications such as direct combustion in a power plant, energy pellets or cellulosic biofuels. The second is to harvest at about 6 - 8 feet tall about every two months for animal feed and to produce biogas for anaerobic digestion. This harvest was at 8 feet tall. The Giant King Grass was planted at the top of rows and irrigation was provided by flooding the inter-spacing furrows.

Five separate representative sections of each planting type (replicates) were harvested by hand and fully characterized. Samples were also sent for forage analysis. This is the first harvest, and subsequent harvests are expected to be more frequent and produce higher yields.

From visual observation and measurements, the whole stalk planting initially showed earlier germination and the plant height was higher. The measured yield of the first harvest of whole stalk planting was 26 wet tons per acre. The plants were approximately 8 feet tall to tip of leaf.

From observations and measurements, the individual plants had a significant number of skips where the plants failed to germinate. In the future, any skips will be filled in by transplants or replanting. Nevertheless, the canopy was closed quickly and the individual plants were a bit taller and had thicker stalks. The measured yield of the first harvest of individual plants was 36 wet tons per acre.

Both yields are excellent for the first harvest. Both will be harvested again in about two months. It is expected that there will be 4 to 5 harvests per year in the Imperial Valley.

From the preliminary data, it appears that the individual plants produce 38% higher yield than planting whole stalks. This conclusion needs to be verified by repeated harvests, but this is a significant finding. Both were planted on the same time and irrigated and fertilized identically.

After the measurements, the remaining Giant King Grass was cut by a swather and removed from the field to allow the regrowth to begin.

VIASPACE has a research collaboration with the University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources Division (UCANR). UCANR is the division of the University of California that operates the Cooperative Extension Program and nine Research and Extension Centers that link California farmers and ranchers to agricultural and veterinary researchers at UC campuses. VIASPACE is collaborating with the 255 acre Desert Research and Extension Center, located in Holtville, California.

VIASPACE CEO, Dr. Carl Kukkonen, reported, "It was 108 degrees when I arrived in Holtville last Monday evening at 6 PM. I am pleased that Giant King Grass grows well in this extremely hot and dry environment. Giant King Grass is planted in the worst soil at the University of California site, and still the results are good. This demonstrates that marginal land can be used for Giant King Grass. The high yields were as anticipated, and I expect that the results from the second harvest will even be better. Giant King Grass will be an excellent commercial animal feed crop in the Imperial Valley of California. We see similar results -- even a little better-- in Nicaragua."

VIASPACE is growing Giant King Grass in 11 locations in 8 countries on 4 continents, and it has been extensively tested by third party laboratories for electricity production, biogas, biofuel, pellet and animal feed applications.

Sep 2, 2014 VIASPACE Giant King Grass Progress in Nicaragua--12 MW Plant and Animal Feed Business
http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/VSPC/news

 
WALNUT, Calif., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- VIASPACE Inc. (OTCQB: VSPC) issued an update on the Giant King Grass power plant and animal feed projects in Nicaragua.

VIASPACE CEO Dr. Carl Kukkonen traveled to Nicaragua in August to participate in the formal power plant feasibility study being conducted by Pelican SA of Managua. The feasibility study team met at the plantation on the shores of Lake Nicaragua to assess the agricultural aspects of the project and to inspect potential sites for the power plant and survey the route for the transmission line to connect to the national grid.

The agricultural feasibility study team included experts from Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Europe and the United States. The team reviewed plans for planting, growing, harvesting, transporting and processing 284,000 tons of fresh Giant King Grass every year for the 12 MW biomass power plant. The team heard from the local Energia Reino Verde team that has been growing Giant King Grass in Nicaragua since 2012. Energia Reino Verde (English translation "Green Kingdom Energy") is the special purpose company that will own and operate the 12 MW biomass power plant and 2,100 acre Giant King Grass (GKG) plantation in Nicaragua.

The grid connection group of the feasibility study team also visited the plantation and examined potential sites for the power plant. They also conducted a survey for the route for the transmission line to connect to the Nicaraguan grid. The distance is approximately 9 km. The power will be sold to the Nicaraguan grid and potentially also to private customers. Nicaraguan law allows private customers to use the grid to deliver reliable electricity to them.

A potential Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor from the United States visited the plantation and power plant site to evaluate the project. Energia Reino Verde is interviewing several potential EPC contractors and hopes to make a selection after the feasibility study is completed.

Nicaragua is currently in a drought, but the Giant King Grass plantation is located on Lake Nicaragua with plenty of water for irrigation. Animal feeders throughout the country will likely face a serious shortage of animal feed in the beginning of 2015. The Nicaraguan partners are considering a major expansion of the Giant King Grass animal feed production to help meet needs for animal feed throughout the country. As part of the animal feed project, Giant King Grass was harvested and made into silage. Samples were also sent to Dairy One in the US for forage analysis.

Kukkonen reported, "I am very satisfied with the progress on the project in Nicaragua. We have an excellent team, and the external review by the feasibility study group will validate and improve our plan. This plantation and power plant will be a flagship for VIASPACE. We have other potential customers watching us closely and we expect to have similar projects in place in the future. VIASPACE will earn revenue from the Giant King Grass license fee and also generate earnings from a retained equity stake in the power plant."

VIASPACE Chairman, Dr. Kevin Schewe, commented, "I encourage all interested parties and investors to examine the new pictures that we are posting on our Facebook page showing aerial views of the where the 12 MW biomass power plant and 2,100 acre Giant King Grass plantation will be located including views of the Giant King Grass that is already growing there. We are proceeding with the animal feed side of the business in parallel with the 12 MW power plant and we show Giant King Grass being chopped to make silage as animal feed. This is our flagship project and business model because we will earn revenue from our Giant King Grass license fee and also generate earnings as an equity partner in the sale of electricity. In addition and very significant, we are going to demonstrate how the animal feed business and biomass electric power generation can be complementary businesses generating an even more robust economic profit related to the Giant King Grass plantation."

Dr. Schewe, concluded, "I commend Dr. Kukkonen and our partners in Nicaragua for having the vision and diligence to move this project forward with remarkable speed and success. There are many eyes watching this project and we believe that we are gaining additional recognition as a leader in this business space as its success unfolds. We are moving forward on so many other fronts as well and my support for this company is stronger than ever."
