Company set to finalize abandoned-boat recycling plans

American Fiber Green Products scheduled a meeting to finalize plans to open a Florida-based abandoned-boat recycling operation.

President and CEO Daniel L. Hefner said he expects a formal plan of operation and funding to be the result of a scheduled May 8 meeting with landowners and potential funding partners.

“Recent press releases have generated a tremendous influx of interest in the company and the solutions we offer. Specifically, AFBG will offer a solution to the massive abandoned and derelict boat problem, particularly around the Gulf Coast. We have made good progress toward finalizing site selection for the start of this project. It is our intention to announce the chosen location by the middle of May 2012,” American Fiber Green Products chairman Kenneth McCleave said in a statement.
