KAMLOOPS — Progressive Planet, a company involved in developing cleantech solutions, changes its leadership team by naming Steve Gurney President as it enters commercialization phase of low carbon and carbon sequestering innovations for the cement and agriculture industries.

Gurney was previously President of Progressive Planet Products Inc., the Company’s wholly owned manufacturing subsidiary, and brings experience within operations that scaled from startup to production of packaged products. Gurney steps into an expanded role as President of the parent Company.

The move comes following Progressive Planet announcing it will break ground on a PozGlass™ 100G pilot plant in 2023 and scale manufacturing operations for CARBON PK™ natural fertilizer in 2024. PozGlass replaces cement, sequesters CO2, and is made from post-consumer glass diverted from landfills using a patent-pending process. CARBON PK’s proprietary formulation is reducing fertilizer application by 50% on 617 acres in Western Canada in 2023.

Concurrently, Progressive Planet announces Ian Grant as VP of Strategy and Investor Relations. Grant, previously COO, shifts his focus externally while remaining a key part of the leadership team.

As part of completing annual reviews, PLAN announces that the Board of Directors has granted a total of 1,600,000 stock options to directors, officers, and insiders of the Company, exercisable at $0.275 for a period of three years. All options were granted in accordance with the Company’s stock option plan.

“Progressive Planet has now entered into an aggressive commercialization phase of major cement and agricultural innovations,” said Progressive Planet CEO Steve Harpur.

Added Harpur: “At the same time, we are committed to increasing investor awareness and delivering shareholder value. Moving Steve and Ian into their new roles sets up Progressive Planet towards success on both fronts.”
