Greengro Technologies, Inc. (OTC:GRNH), a world-class provider of eco-friendly green technologies, announced today that is has signed a definitive agreement on a ten-acre, $25 million Greengro hydroponic indoor farm project with Global Renewable Resources, LLC (GRR), Shaker Heights, Ohio, a new startup specializing in sustainable technologies and renewable energy.

The agreement calls for GRR to purchase a Glass Greenhouse Franchise marketed by Greengro subsidiary BP Gardens, Inc. The project will utilize advanced technology and production methods from Greengro’s newly acquired subsidiary Biodynamics, a premier indoor controlled environment agriculture (CEA) industry leader. Biodynamics provides Greengro customers with turnkey, fully automated, off-grid, state-of-the-art, high-tech hydroponic “€œsmart”€ indoor vertical farms using positive pressure HVAC and photovoltaic (PV) solar glass.

The GRR Glass Greenhouse Franchise includes a turnkey greenhouse facility powered by renewable energy and designed to annually produce millions of pounds of a large variety of organic, pesticide-free hydroponically grown vegetables and fruits.

Through Greengro’€™s BP Gardens franchise agreement, GRR has raised 50 percent of the funds needed and committed to finish raising capital and completing site planning on the Northeast Ohio-based facility. This is the first of four phases of an estimated $100 million total project planned for the 40-acre facility during the next four years, according to Haas.

“€œThe company will focus on hiring military veterans to run production operations,”€ stated Greengro CEO James Haas. “€œAnd five percent of the total production is earmarked for donation to Feeding America.” Based in, Chicago, Ill., Feeding America is a nationwide network of 200 food banks leading the fight against hunger in the U.S.

€œ”Greengro’€™s leading edge CEA technology fits perfectly into our business model to invest in companies that reduce carbon emissions while producing a higher quality product to be sold into the Midwest produce market,”€ said GRR CEO David Mays.
