Technology of coal fertilizer made by Indonesian entrepreneur is recognized in the US
The technology of coal-based fertilizer developed by Indonesian entrepreneur, R Umar Hasan Saputra is acknowledged with the issuance of patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Consulate General of Republic of Indonesia ( KJRI) in Chicago in its statement more recently stated that the acknowledgment is a great achievement due to the coal-based fertilizer production technology developed by the inventor in the field of agriculture. This is the only one that has succeeded in getting the patent in the USA. With the patent, the coal fertilizer with the trademark Glogens Organic Micro-Carbon Fertilizer can enter the industrial market of agriculture in the United States, which is currently the largest market globally. Besides, it can open investment opportunities such as fabric as well as fasten the products internationally.
Furthermore, Umar explained the patent for the technology he won has several advantages. The fertilizer in Indonesia has the trademark "Futura" and it is produced from low-calorie coal base materials that are widely available in many countries. The fertilizer is organic because it can improve soil conditions and can be produced more quickly and friendly environmentally. The fertilizer production can be more economical compared to other chemical fertilizers.
As a follow-up step after the issuance of the patent, GLOGENS will process licensing and licensing applications to the relevant authorities in the USA, before entering the stage of a broader marketing effort. To support the effort, GLOGENS has also prepared a piece of land in California for fertilizer trials coal for grains and is preparing additional land in Indiana for maize species.
To support the penetration of Glogens Organic Micro-Carbon Fertilizer in the United States, Consul General of Chicago (KJIR), Meri Binsar Simorangkir stated that his side and Indonesian Trade Promotion Center (ITPC) will help facilitate the process of submitting standard certification to relevant institutions in America, promote the marketing efforts, and collaborate with related parties in the Midwest. The region is known as one of the centers of agricultural production and major plantations in the USA, such as soybeans, corn, and wheat. So, Midwest is one of the areas with high potential for Futura fertilizer marketing in the future.
