The growth in the global livestock sector has been characterized by increasingly larger operations and more centralized locations – resulting in increasingly expensive and risky waste disposal challenges. One of our WasteRenew™ Facilities can process the manure from a 4,000 cow dairy, an 8,000 cattle feedlot, or a 2.5 million poultry facility.

As the diagram illustrates, we place our WasteRenew™ Facility on approximately two acres at our Host site immediately adjacent to the green waste supply, in this case fresh cattle manure. Manure from poultry, hog or horse farms are also suitable. The Host is responsible for delivering to us, at their cost, 15 to 25 truckloads of manure per day into our pre-conditioning building, where we prepare the material for our cooking process.
After the cooker, the formulated mixture is fed into our processing area where it is formed into customized low moisture prills, granules, meal or pellets, as required, then sent to storage.
Feedlot Host Feedback from Greg Appleyard

We have proven our technologies by building and operating a full scale commercial facility in Alberta. This facility, located at a 25,000 head feedlot, was installed in 2006 and, after the commissioning phase, has been operating commercially since April 2008. In December 2008 we completed a further optimization of the facility. This experience has given us confidence in our design, economic models, capital costs and timelines
