Plantstone Research and Development

The Plantstone research team has collaborated with other researchers and conducted Plantstone Carbon analysis on many plant species and their varieties. These plants were grown and collected from field trials at NSW Agriculture Tamworth, Qld DPI&NR Biloela, Goondiwindi, Roma, Toowoomba and the propeties of private landholders as well as the Fujian Academy of Forestry Sciences and the Zhejiang A&F University, China. If you would like to know more about Plantstone carbon or investment opportunities using Plantstone carbon please contact us. Plantstone technology provides carbon sequestration solutions for agricultural crops, horticultural and turf industries, wetlands construction, revegetation projects with native plants and the rehabilitation of degraded landscapes. We have also been looking at plants suitable for the household garden and also grasses suitable for your lawns. These will be available through reputable nurseries soon so keep you eye out for the authentic Plantstone Carbon Eaters® Logo and visit our Plantstone Carbon Eaters® page www.plantstonecarboneaters.com for updates. At Plantstone we have been working hard to identify the best carbon sequestering plants for your conditions. Note our research shows that not all plant species contain good Plantstone Carbon Capture capabilities and for those that do this carbon is highly variable between the varieties of those species. To identify the plant species and varieties within those species that we have screened and endorsed as having good Plantstone Carbon Capture capabilities look for the authentic Plantstone Carbon Eaters® Logo featured on the right. We hold IP on procedures for plant breeding, carbon quantification and for the practical application of this process as well as both granted AUS Patent 2005279679, US Patent 7927884B2 and pending international patent applications on the use of these procedures for the purpose of carbon sequestration and claiming carbon credits.

Carbon sequestration solutions for cropping
Offsetting on farm expenses

Carbon sequestration will not provide the entire income for a grain or fodder producing farm but it may be an option that will provide additional income for offsetting on farm expenses such as fuel or fertiliser costs.


wetlands construction
Carbon sequestration in wetlands

Many wetland plants such as sedges are particularly good sequesters of carbon. There is a real potential to capitalise on the ability of these plants for the construction of wetlands for wastewater treatment and for rehabilitation of existing degraded wetland systems. revegetation with native plants.


bushland regeneration Regeneration projects with Australian natives

Revegetation projects require a diversity of plants rather than monocultures. While trees are often carefully selected for such projects grasses and other herbaceous plants should be considered equally important. Many Australian native herbaceous species are also very good carbon sequesters.


rehabilitation of degraded land
Carbon sequestration on degraded land

On land that has been completely degraded by erosion
and/or salinity the re-establishment of vegetation on bare soils constitutes a land-use change for which all carbon increases may be eligible for claiming carbon credits.

We have screened a a large number of plant species and found that not all have Plantstone carbon. Chickpeas is an example of this.

However, we have established that some varieties of the following economic grass species have Plantstone carbon capabilities.

Bamboo

Barley

Corn

Millet

Rice

Sorghum

Sugarcane

Wheat

We have also established that some other plant species and/or varieties of those species have Plantstone carbon capabilities including some;

Native grasses

Introduced pasture

Other Native and

Introdued herbaceous plants
