Boca Raton-based Zero Gravity Solutions issued a press release on October 16 announcing proprietary agricultural technology developed on the International Space Station.
Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. (ZGSI or “the Company”), (Pink Sheets: ZGSI), announced today the introduction of BAM-FX™, a proprietary technology designed for use in the space program, which we are now developing and preparing to deploy for agricultural use on Earth to create densely nutritious, immune system enhancing food for application to world agriculture. Initial data utilizing our technology as applied to agricultural use on Earth has demonstrated, through independent certified laboratory analysis, the ability to systemically deliver targeted minerals and micronutrients throughout a plant from seed or root to maturity. This was accomplished without the use of genetic modification or traditional fertilizers. The ability to create highly nutritious, immune system enhanced crops that are not Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) is a potentially significant, disruptive agricultural technology.
Harvey Kaye, chairman of the Company, stated, “Our six years of work on the International Space Station and the intellectual property we own has allowed us to introduce the first of an anticipated pipeline of technologies to help to feed the world.” Mr. Kaye further stated, “The commercial deployment of BAM-FX creates an executable path to revenue in the near term.”
Richard Godwin, the Company’s chief executive officer and president, stated, “During the next 12 months, the Company will be engaged in rigorous field testing in conjunction with end product users, foundations, governmental agencies and academia.” Mr. Godwin further added, “It is expected that peer-reviewed data resulting from this work will lead to final formulations, application methodologies, manufacturing, sales and distribution of this breakthrough technology.”
