Bion Environmental Technologies Inc. provides a comprehensive animal waste management system that reclaims energy and nutrients from the livestock (dairy/cattle) waste streams and eliminates most of their environmental impact. Trading on the OTCBB, Bion is part of the Pollution and Treatment Controls industry. Headquartered in New York City, they focus on the continuing development of their waste management technology, which provides environmental solutions to the agriculture industry in the United States.
Bion provides their solutions to large-scale animal farming operations such as dairy, cattle feedlot, and hogs for integration of renewable energy production, ethanol production, animal husbandry, and organic soil/fertilizer and feed production. Their technology recovers renewable energy from the waste in a process that is much different from other technologies. Bion’s process extracts the cellulosic biomass to produce a combustible solid fuel that replaces the use of fossil fuels in enterprises’ integrated projects.
The Company’s platform removes up to 95 percent of the nutrients in the wastewater effluent and reduces ammonia emissions by greater than 90 percent. With air and water pollution from confined animal feeding operations reduced to low levels, high-density livestock operations can proceed on a scale large enough (50,000-plus head) to efficiently integrate them with biofuel/ethanol production.
With clean up of the waste streams of large-scale animal farming operations, Bion’s processes helps with integration farming activities. Their solutions allow agribusinesses to integrate their activities in a state-of-the-art facility. This reduces transportation costs and maximizes market opportunities. These state-of-the-art facilities incorporate onsite production and use of co-products, including renewable energy produced from the livestock wastes, to replace the natural gas requirements of an enterprise. This produces significant advantages in environmental, energy, and economic efficiency.
