Organic Wastes to Fertilizer and Clean Coal


We've seen it and smelled them before - organic and other biological wastes that go to drains and ditches by the roadside or dumped in places where you'd least expect them. They are out of sight for the most part, but you know they are around and give a revolting experience, nevertheless, when you smell them.
Cities, municipalities, and even corporations have this problem of disposing organic wastes from houses, establishments, and such industries as farming and livestock.

Organic wastes generally get mixed with garbage and leach into the soil contaminating groundwater. If there is no effective treatment method, the wastes only serve to contaminate the environment. It's a big problem, but few people are aware that there is a way to deal with them and allow municipalities and private establishments to benefit and protect the environment at the same time. It involves the use of special waste to energy technologies to process and disinfect municipal organic wastes - practically changing them into useful reusable products that enrich the soil. A company that provides such a solution is N-Viro International.

N-Viro International uses a patented process that takes municipal bio-solids and mixes them with lime and mineral-rich byproducts from the coal combustion, electric generation, cement, and lime industries. These wastes function to pasteurize, immobilize, and change sludge material and other organic wastes into useful and clean bio-mineral agricultural soil-enrichment products - fertilizers that make good produce! From useless environmental refuse, the process produces something of value that can create money, generate jobs, and help make the world a better place with less waste. The technology is now licensed in the United States and internationally and is currently serving satisfied clients. The system has already proven it's worth in the state of Florida in the US, successfully serving municipalities in the central area with a facility in Daytona that converts municipal bio-solids into what is called N-Viro Soil.

Apart from this natural soil-enrichment product, N-Viro International is also making use of organic wastes for the creation of fuel products in its waste to energy N-Viro Fuel technology program. The products are either a combination of bio solids or manure and coal to produce two blended fuels that compete with standard coal and conform with current emission standards - having been tested and proven that particulates produced are well below the regulation limits. The products have been successfully tested at the Michigan State University coal-fired power plant. The products have generally been dubbed clean coal and the positive response to them have made them into opportunity fuels of this age that's in dire need of alternative energy sources and/or renewable energy products.

With this kind of technology handy and accessible to the world's cities, people will have less to deal with the problem of organic waste disposal and everything to gain from the new products from materials that used to be nothing but repugnant waste. There are lots of benefits from this green technology from the likes of companies like N-Viro as this will lessen the financial burden of local governments and private companies when it comes to waste disposal. Since the initial public offering of N-Viro in 1993, underwritten by Robertson Stephens, Raymond James, Oppenheimer & Co., and Paine Webber, the company has already had sales amounting to $40 million.
