KLIMAT X ACHIEVES FIRST MILESTONE AND DISBURSEMENT FOR REWILDING PROJECT IN WEST AFRICA
VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 1, 2023 /CNW/ - Klimat X Developments Inc. ("Klimat X" or the "Company") (TSXV: KLX) a company that develops validated and verified carbon credits from afforestation and reforestation of degraded land areas and marine ecosystems, including mangroves, for sale into international voluntary carbon markets, is pleased to announce the completion of all milestones required for the first disbursement of funds from the pre-purchase agreement announced on June 15. The funds are dedicated to tree planting from nurseries during this year's planting season and will be received within five business days from the Fortune 100 company that committed to the pre-purchase contract.
The company has developed and commenced a large-scale rewilding reforestation project as part of its growing operations in West Africa, for an initial area of 5,000 ha, which can be extended by a further 20,000 ha. The initial project area of 5,000 ha will produce up to 1.9m tonnes of validated and verified Verra carbon credits over 30 years. The total pre-purchase amount will be repaid with the delivery of the initial issuance of credits and the balance will be available to the pre-purchaser at an index linked price.
The Company completed 400 ha of planting since starting in 2022, and expects to plant between 800 and 1000 ha within this 2023 planting season. This year's planting commenced in July and is expected to proceed at a pace of 70-100 ha per week. The Company has mapped and verified 15,000 ha of land for restoration and in working with an NGO, Namati to complete land owner agreements under independently observed Free and Prior Informed Consent. The Company has grown around 250,000 seedlings in its own nurseries and has sourced a further 375,000 seedlings from local providers with the goal of completing the first year of planting by the end of September.
The Company is nearing the completion of the Verra Project Design Document (PDD) and CCB, which will be submitted for third party validation in the coming weeks. This process confirms the project carbon credit production to reasonable standards of assurance.
Klimat X CEO James Tansey stated 'We have again demonstrated our ability to rapidly build our operations in the region, responding to the growing demand from business for high quality carbon credits. One hectare is the size of a soccer field, so the scale of our project is very significant. Not only are we restoring native species to the region, but we are also providing much needed employment and training to households that benefit directly. As we continue to make rapid progress, this project will achieve unprecedented levels of restoration and economic development in the country.'
About Klimat X
Klimat X carries on the business of developing validated and verified carbon credits from afforestation and reforestation of degraded land areas and marine ecosystems, including mangroves, for sale into international voluntary carbon markets. In contrast to streaming and royalty companies, Klimat X works upstream as a direct owner and operator of projects, addressing a key supply constraint in the current market and the rapidly growing demand for carbon credits in global voluntary and regulated markets. The Company intends to achieve this by investing in the exploration, restoration and management of terrestrial and marine systems that can either be protected to enhance the sequestration of greenhouse gases or restored from a degraded status to fully productive ecosystems. Klimat X will draw on the experience of a senior executive team and board that provide access into key target jurisdictions through relationships in the mining and natural resources sectors, combined with decades of experience in carbon markets. Klimat X plans to deploy capital at risk under various arrangements (including cooperation, assignment and production sharing agreements) with large landowners and governments in various suitable jurisdictions around the world.
