GreenWorld Development, Inc. has announced that the company is in joint venture discussions to build affordable and environmentally friendly housing in Sub-Sahara Africa that would employ a unique technology to ferment and impregnate building panels and building blocks with anti-mosquito repellents.
“Malaria remains to be a major threat to mankind worldwide, especially in Africa,” GreenWorld-CEO Leo J. Heinl says. “In Kenya, every year 34,000 of children in the age of five and younger die because of Malaria – about 100 per day. We at GreenWorld trust that this technology will become a major step in the fight against malaria.”
The repellent will be made available to building contractors, government and health organizations.
The toxin, which the company says is not dangerous to humans, will need to be replenished every 2 years.
GreenWorld Development, Inc. develops products to support the “Smart Green Economy.” The company’s main focus is pharmaceutical/healthcare, carbon emission technologies and trading, R&D in alternative, sustainable, innovative, competitive and environmentally friendly technologies along with emerging market consultancy.
