Biomass Controls PBC (Public Benefit Corporation) announced today that it will receive a loan from WaterEquity’s WaterCredit
Investment Fund 3 (WCIF3) to expand the deployment of biogenic refineries in India (as well as other priority countries) where existing demonstrations for fecal sludge
management are currently established.
The biogenic refinery is a decentralized, small-scale, thermal process that remediates any organic waste (i.e. fecal, food, agriculture waste (manures, crop residues), and others). De-watered waste streams are inputted into the system, processed thermally, and produces pathogen-free outputs in the form of nutrient-rich carbon. An integrated combined-heat and power technology generates positive electrical power enabling the system to be off-grid and excess energy can be stored or used for other applications. Novel controls and software (Kelv°n™) allow users to remotely monitor all inputs/outputs, process parameters (KPIs), and customize reporting tools. The goal of this technology is to be at the forefront on meeting the new emerging International Standards Organization ISO/PC 318 “Community Scale Resource Oriented Sanitation Treatment Systems.”
