Michigan Department of Energy, Labor & Economic Growth (DELEG) has announced a grant award to N-Viro International Corporation for conducting a feasibility test for its N-Viro Fuel at a utility based in Michigan. N-Viro International Corporation is an environmental and materials operating company and owns patented technologies related to conversion of a wide range of waste into reusable products include N-Viro Fuel, renewable biofuel and N-Viro Soil.
The feasibility of the renewable biofuel “N-Viro Fuel” will be tested by a Michigan-based utility under the stipulated conditions of the grant. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has already issued the necessary permits required for the test, which is planned to take place in early 2010. The aim of the test is to study the feasibility of the N-Viro Fuel and its performance in the boiler. The impact on emissions will be also be analyzed during the test. A letter of intent has been executed by N-Viro International with the utility detailing the scope of the test. The company is expecting a long-term contract after the test is performed.
Chief Executive Officer and President of N-Viro, Timothy R. Kasmoch, said that the company is pleased to receive State of Michigan’s support and expects the test will be a great success. Kasmoch further added that N-Viro Fuel was demonstrated successfully in 2007 at Michigan State University and was confident this test will also be equally successful.
Kasmoch said that the company was expecting similar test grants from other states as well and was working other utilities in this regard. Kasmoch further added the N-Viro Fuel technology offers a very good solution to the emerging renewable energy sector.
