History

Since 1988, Wolfgang Amelung has worked on developing ecosystems with the purpose of achieving “the transformation of humanity through harmony with nature”.

1985  Genetron Systems Inc. founded.

1988   Mr. Amelung is granted a Canadian and U.S. patent for his Breathing Wall ecosystem design.

1989  Mr. Amelung becomes involved with the Institute for Space and Terrestrial Science (I.S.T.S.) (now CRESTech) to further develop his technology for space applications in the area of biosphere development as life support systems.

1990   Mr. Amelung coordinated and played a major role in the development of a Canadian space program based on biosphere work through I.S.T.S.  Mr. Amelung introduced Dr. M. Dixon (University of Guelph) and Dr. W. Adey (Smithsonian Institute) to I.S.T.S. who short time later joined I.S.T.S. (now CRESTech). A proposal for conducting biosphere research and work is accepted by the Canadian Space Agency.  A Consortium is formed and funding received by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. 

1992   Genetron Systems Inc. completed its first Wolfgang Amelung's rainforest ecosystem project for Glaxo Canada.

1993   Canada Life Assurance Company contracts with Genetron   for the development of a Breathing Wall Ecosystem that could be linked to their HVAC system to provide clean, fresh air to the entire floor of the building.
 
1994  Genetron Systems designs and builds a Breathing Wall   Ecosystem for Canada Life's Environmental Meeting Room.
 
1995   At Genetron’s request, the University of Guelph, under the direction of Dr. M. Dixon, begins a research project to study the effectiveness of Genetron's Breathing Wall Ecosystem at Canada Life in creating cleaner air. This research project  was funded by: Canada Life Assurance Company, the Institute for Space and Terrestrial Science (I.S.T.S.) (now CRESTech) and the Ontario Ministries of Environment and Energy, and Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
 
1996   The first published results of the University of Guelph's study are announced. Results demonstrated and concluded that Genetron’s Breathing Wall Ecosystem was a progressive and powerful natural air purifying system that effectively cured Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) and removed significant amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOC's) from the indoor atmosphere.
 
1996  Genetron creates Wolfgang Amelung's rainforest ecosystem for Panasonic Canada in their employee cafeteria.
 
1998  Genesis - Foundation for Ecological and Atmospheric Research is formed as a not-for-profit organization.
 
1998  Genetron designs and builds Wolfgang Amelung's rainforest ecosystem for Club Monaco’s head office.
 
After 30 years since the beginning of Genetron, We are continually working to produce amazing results with our ecosystems in order to create.synergistic technology that will benefit human life in ways of self healing, wellness, joy in life and love.
