N-Viro to install wastewater biosolids processing system in Niagara area

A third system is about to be installed and operated by N-Viro Systems Canada in the Greater Niagara region where the liming and fertilizer product made there will be used on a variety of crops in this intensively cultivated agricultural region. That facility is scheduled to come on line in late 2005. Two other BioDry facilities are in design stages in eastern Canada...

TOLEDO, OH, Feb. 22, 2005 (PRNewswire-FirstCall) -- N-Viro International Corp. announced the development of three new facilities in eastern Canada that utilize the company's BioDry technology for the advanced treatment of wastewater biosolids. The BioDry system has been well received in Canada under the development efforts of N-Viro Systems Canada, Inc., the Canadian licensee.

The first BioDry system was installed in Leamington, Ontario, in January, 1996 and has been in continuous service since. A second facility, in Sarnia, Ontario, designed and operated by N-Viro Systems Canada, opened for business in March 2001. The N-Viro Soil product manufactured at these two plants is sold to area farmers for use on a wide range of grain, feed and specialty crops.

A third system is about to be installed and operated by N-Viro Systems Canada in the Greater Niagara region where the liming and fertilizer product made there will be used on a variety of crops in this intensively cultivated agricultural region. That facility is scheduled to come on line in late 2005. Two other BioDry facilities are in design stages in eastern Canada.

The BioDry technology is a safe, cost-effective way to disinfect, stabilize and dry wastewater biosolids. The addition of mineral by-products eliminates any potential for fires and explosions, thereby avoiding the capital costs incurred for fire and explosion prevention and containment. Ease of operation, during startup and shutdown, and system maintenance have been noted as important characteristics of this technology.

N-Viro is seeing greater interest in the BioDry technology in the U.S. where thermal drying alternatives for biosolids treatment are increasing in popularity. The Company has filed patents on several improvements to the technology and is working with equipment suppliers to move these offerings forward. For more information regarding the BioDry process, contact Dan Haslinger, president and CEO.

N-Viro International Corp. (www.nviro.com) develops and licenses its technology to municipalities and private companies. It's patented processes use lime and/or mineral-rich, combustion byproducts to treat, pasteurize, immobilize and convert wastewater sludge and other bio-organic wastes into biomineral agricultural and soil-enrichment products with real market value.
