Bion Environmental Technologies Inc. Announces Initial Results of Advanced Separation Technology Pilot
Aug 2 12
Bion Environmental Technologies Inc. announced initial results of the advanced separation technology the company is piloting at its livestock waste treatment facility at Kreider Farms in Manheim, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. In mid-July, the company began conducting (invitation-only) tours for various stakeholders to showcase the new solids separation technology, now being piloted on-site after a series of successful bench trials. This pilot represents the last step in the company's separate and aggregate strategy. This strategy focuses not only on treating the waste stream to mitigate environmental impacts, but also isolating and capturing the various value-components in the stream so that they can be recaptured and then converted into assets instead of being lost to contaminate local and downstream waters. The company's patented micro-aerobic livestock waste treatment system accomplishes this strategy through a multi-stage process: Stage 1 produces a cellulosic biomass that can be used to produce renewable energy. Stage 2, the bioreactor, produces inert nitrogen gas in lieu of detrimental ammonia emissions to the atmosphere, greatly reduces a wide range of environmental problems including greenhouse gases, hydrogen sulfide and VOC emissions, and converts nitrogen and phosphorus into a more stable form; where, in Stage 3, the pilot separates the nutrients to produce both an energy-rich soluble stream of nutrients that can be used as a feedstock for an onsite greenhouse or hydroponic growing facility, as well as a particulate nutrient stream that can be dried and used as an organic fertilizer or as a single-cell protein livestock feed component. The final discharge will be water from the greenhouse facility that can be land-applied to recharge the aquifer or be treated and reused by the livestock facility. The existing livestock facility, where current practices dictate that the economic costs of treating its environmental impacts exceeds the economic value of the existing business enterprise, is now converted into an integrated producer of protein products, a renewable energy feedstock, feedstock for an on-site greenhouse or hydroponic growing facility, a single cell protein livestock feed component, and water that can be used in a variety of ways. The company integrated approach to livestock agriculture will enable the production of livestock proteins using the least amount of water and energy possible per unit of livestock protein produced. The company anticipates concluding its advanced separation technology pilot at Kreider Farms in September of 2012. Barring unforeseen challenges, a full scale separation technology installation could be implemented in late 2012 to early 2013, coupled with greenhouse growing trials utilizing the soluble nutrient stream and feed trials using the single-cell protein from the recovered particulate nutrients.
Bion Environmental Technologies Inc. Announces Micro-Aerobic Livestock Waste Treatment Facility in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
Aug 1 12
Bion Environmental Technologies Inc. announced that the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) issued a final and full Water Quality Management Permit for Bion's micro-aerobic livestock waste treatment facility located at the Kreider Dairy Farm in Manheim, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The full WQMP replaces the 'Water Quality Management Experimental Permit' issued by the PA DEP to Bion prior to the construction of the Kreider facility. Incorporated within the permit is Bion's verification plan approval which spells out the sampling and reporting requirements for the issuance of verified credit reductions from the PA DEP. The full WQMP and verification plan approval is a significant milestone that enables Bion to be a participating seller of credits in the PENNVEST nutrient credit trading program. At its March 2012 credit auction, PA adopted a requirement that credits be 'verified' in order to qualify for inclusion in its trading program.
