MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2012) - BioNitrogen Corporation (PINKSHEETS: BION), a cleantech company that utilizes proprietary technology to build environmentally-friendly plants that convert biomass into urea fertilizer, announced today that it has signed a three-year, non-exclusive agreement with PRM Energy Systems, Inc. ("PRME") to build gasification units for its urea plants. The first of the company's plants will be built in Hardee County, FL, as previously announced.
PRME is in the business of developing, designing, and supplying proprietary gasification technologies and equipment and is world renowned as the premier technology for biomass gasification.
BioNitrogen continues to work with Granherne, Inc., a KBR company, the global engineering firm, on the engineering report, which will be completed shortly. Thereafter, Granherne will work on the design of the plant, which includes the PRME gasification systems. The initial engineering work for the Texas plant has been transferred over to the Florida plant.
The plant will be strategically located to source biomass feedstock. The location in Hardee County, Florida, will be beneficial to the local community, the sourcing of biomass and the logistics of getting the urea fertilizer to market. The State of Florida is one of the largest producers of tree trimmings, a feedstock that is year-round and not subject to severe declines in production due to weather. Furthermore, bad weather events in Florida, such as heavy rains or hurricanes, can produce higher volumes of biomass feedstock.
"We are pleased to partner with BioNitrogen," said Mr. Ron Bailey, Jr., President, PRM Energy Systems, Inc. "Now that we've been selected as the company's gasification source, the process can advance rapidly for the initial plant."
Mr. Carlos Contreras, President and CEO of BioNitrogen, said, "This agreement is a major step forward in the process of constructing our first urea manufacturing plant. We are pleased to be working with PRME, which is a world-class company with a long track record of building first-class gasification systems. This brings BioNitrogen another step closer to providing domestically produced urea fertilizer for the North American market."
