Keystone Edge Article Writes About N-VIRO Fuel™

Writer for Keystone Edge, Rebecca VanderMeulen, interviewed Vice President of N-Viro International, Bob Bohmer last week over the phone.
Rebecca had learned about the Company on the internet and was immediately intrigued with the prospect of turning sewage sludge into fuel.
She says in the article:
“Sewage sludge is a fact of life, but figuring out what to do with it isn’t easy. It’s traditionally dumped in landfills, but that produces methane. Some farmers use treated biosolids for fertilizer, but that’s a controversial practice and still inevitably produces carbon dioxide”
But the good news Rebecca goes on to say:
“However, N-Viro has developed a way to take biosolids, put them in a thermal dryer and end up with a material with low water content. The result burns at temperatures between 650 and 750 degrees, just like coal.”
Bohmer says the biosolid fuel can’t entirely replace coal but can significantly cut down on how much is used to generate electricity. It’s been successfully tested at Michigan State University’s power plant.
Great article Rebecca and thank you for spreading the news about N-VIRO Fuel™.
