New Year starts off well for N-Viro

N-Viro International Corp. formed a joint venture with SouthSide Environmental Group LLC to build and operate an N-Viro Fuel manufacturing plant in Ohio, which will produce a coal substitute made from sewer sludge. The U.S. EPA recently qualified N-Viro Fuel technology as an alternative energy source that can be used in commercial power generation, giving the company the opportunity to qualify for renewable energy incentives. The plant is expected to be complete in mid- to late 2009. N-Viro also announced a second purchase order agreement with the Tohopekaliga Water Authority in Daytona Beach, Fla., which will procure biosolids for the production of a soil amendment called N-Viro Soil.
