Toledo, Ohio, June 10, 2014 – N-Viro International Corporation (NVIC: OTCQB) announces final determination has been received from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (the “USEPA”). The determination concludes that the N-Viro Fuel™ process satisfies the requirements of 40 CFR part 241.3(b)(4), designating the process as a non-waste fuel product.
The determination is the result of the Company’s request for determination submitted to the USEPA in response to their issuance of 40 CFR 241.3. The rule requires discarded non-hazardous secondary materials (NHSM) must meet the legitimacy criteria for fuels in 40 CFR 241.3(d)(1). The USEPA concluded through review of the Company’s request and subsequent correspondence the N-Viro Fuel process does satisfy the legitimacy criteria for both process and fuel quality. Specifically, the Company was able to demonstrate that the N-Viro Fuel process that; 1) manages the material as a valuable commodity; 2) the material has a meaningful heating value; and 3) contaminant levels are comparable or less than those in traditional fuels.
Timothy R. Kasmoch, CEO and President of N-Viro International, commented, “I am very pleased with the determination from USEPA. This is a significant accomplishment towards the commercialization of our alternative energy process. N-Viro Fuel is a valuable commodity in the secondary fuel market and has proven itself as a genuine waste conversion process. Furthermore, I expect the international community to embrace the USEPA’s determination, thus streamlining our ability to develop projects in those countries that rely on coal for their electrical needs.”
