Bion Environmental Technologies (OTCQB: BNET), a developer of advanced livestock waste treatment technology that dramatically reduces environmental impacts and recovers valuable resources, has broken ground on a small commercial-scale Gen3Tech facility that will be located near Fair Oaks, Indiana. According to the announcement, Bion expects building construction to be completed by Dec. 15, 2022, with waste processing equipment delivered by mid-January. The Gen3Tech platform’s successful operation at Fair Oaks will demonstrate its scalability and allow nitrogen recovery efficiencies to be optimized at scale. Bion will use operating data from the Fair Oaks facility to design its first full-scale commercial project and support certification requirements for various regulatory agencies to establish a USDA-certified sustainable brand. In addition, the facility will produce ammonium bicarbonate fertilizer for both commercial testing by potential joint venture partners and university growth trials.
“A couple key takeaways: first, this is the final engineering step before we are ready to launch full-scale commercial projects. While we expect normal engineering challenges associated with scaling up, we don’t anticipate any major ones because most of this equipment is already in use at larger scale,” said Craig Scott, Bion’s director of communications. “Second, and most important: we are NOT another digester company that will power a couple thousand homes from cow manure. Bion’s key differentiator is the comprehensive solution we bring to all the environmental problems associated with livestock waste – air, water and soil – not just methane and climate change. That comprehensive solution also generates multiple revenue streams, not just one. And while climate impacts need to be addressed, we believe the more pressing problem is the industry’s direct impacts to water quality and human health. In our opinion, developing anaerobic digester projects to extract renewable energy, without addressing ammonia/ nutrient control, is a ticking timebomb that will create greater problems in the future.”
