VANCOUVER, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - International Bio Recovery Corporation ("IBR") (TSX-V-IBR) today signed a Contribution Agreement with the National Research Council of Canada's Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP), which will support IBR in its innovative research and development program with a research contribution of up to $78,000.

This research funding will support IBR's in-house R&D program to understand the scientific basics and commercial potentials of the plant growth/health promoting compounds responsible for the value of Genica soil fertility products produced through EATAD process. This is spin-off research of an earlier NRC-IRAP supported project and the results from this latest project will be instrumental in the rapid development and commercialization of a unique microbial technology that has the potential to dramatically reduce chemical agro-inputs in commercial agriculture. The outcome of the project would also help IBR to develop quality control methodology for the Genica soil fertility products produced from organic wastes.

NRC-IRAP provides a range of both technical and business-oriented advisory services along with potential financial support to qualified innovative Canadian small- and medium-sized enterprises. Financial assistance for this project is a direct result of the Government of Canada's Economic Action Plan. More information about NRC-IRAP is available at www.irap-pari.nrc.gc.ca.
