Hero Technologies Inc. (HENC) Committed to Sustainability in Cannabis Cultivation Operations

  • CSU report notes that some forms of artificial cannabis plant production might not be environmentally friendly
  • HENC sees environmental sustainability and minimizing carbon footprint as synonymous with being good corporate citizens and running a profitable business
  • Company’s proprietary aeroponic cultivation system, high-tech sun chambers have minimal environment impact

In an atmosphere focused on sustainability and the environment, many consumers are taking a closer look at how things are made and the impact those things have on the world. Cannabis cultivation has not gone unnoticed, with a recent Colorado State University (“CSU”) report shining a spotlight on the sector (https://ibn.fm/jK31I). Committed to a strategic grow plan that produces high-efficiency, low-carbon-footprint crops, cannabis company Hero Technologies (OTC: HENC) pays close attention to these reports to ensure sustainability. 

“Generally, consumers want to better understand a product’s impact on the environment, often concerned with greenhouse gas emissions,” stated the CSU article, titled “Marijuana’s High Environmental Burden.” The article noted that marijuana, now legally available as a recreational drug, is often overlooked as far as its environmental impact. “Well, here at Colorado State University, we investigated the environmental impact of traditional marijuana cultivation practices. The results might surprise you. . . .

“Since recreational legalization, the marijuana industry has seen exponential growth,” the article continued. “In Colorado alone, more than one million pounds of marijuana are grown annually. However, more than 80% of that one million pounds is grown indoors. That’s right, plants being grown inside warehouse-like buildings without access to the sun. This requires energy-intense grow lights, fans to circulate air and strengthen stems, carbon dioxide gas to increase plant growth and sophisticated equipment to maintain a comfortable temperature and humidity.”

The article noted that those were only a few of the environmental control systems required to grow marijuana plants indoors, with the majority of such systems relying on electricity or natural gas. “Considering this energy is primarily made through combustion of fossil fuels, you may be starting to connect the dots here, realizing that this form of artificial plant production might not be so environmentally friendly,” the article observed.

Hero Technologies cultivation systems, on the other hand, uses a proprietary aeroponic cultivation system and high-tech sun chambers designed to produce high plant density and yields but with minimal environment impact.

“We see environmental sustainability and minimizing our carbon footprint as synonymous with being good corporate citizens and running a profitable business,” said Hero Technologies CEO Gina Serkasevich. “Sustainable cannabis production has mutually reinforcing drivers: increasing productivity, conserving energy and other resources, reducing environmental waste, and maximizing profitability.”

The system, designed by HENC subsidiary BlackBox Systems and Technologies LLC, produces ideal growing conditions with highly efficient use of materials, resulting in greater photosynthesis, high plant flowers, and optimal harvest yields while also decreasing the carbon footprint per pound of product produced (https://ibn.fm/zynzw).

BlackBox has also partnered with industry leader Ceres Greenhouse Solutions to build innovative, energy-efficient cannabis sun chambers, designed to maximize sunlight to reduce energy use and trap supplemental CO2 to avoid emissions into the atmosphere. The sun chambers, which feature sensors and controllers to regulate the environment and avoid energy waste, also provide renewable, local geothermal energy for unusually efficient heating, cooling and dehumidification. 

“Traditional HVAC and lighting systems can represent close to half of a typical cannabis grower’s operating costs,” said Serkasevich. “But we anticipate that our aeroponic growing system and super-efficient sun chambers could reduce those operating costs by one-third or more. . . . In addition, we expect our cannabis cultivation technologies to produce optimal plant density and crop cycles for the lowest possible cost-per-yield, which is the biggest contributor to sustainability, efficiency, and positive environmental impact.”

Hero Technologies Inc. is a cannabis company working toward a vertically integrated business model. The company’s strategic business plan includes cannabis genetic engineering, space for both medical and recreational cannabis cultivation, production licenses, distribution licenses, consumer packaging, and retail and dispensary operations that make the company a multistate operator.
