The Next Step to a Renewable Future
Changing The Way We Think About Managing Waste
Every day we create a carbon footprint based on factors like what we consume to what we throw away. At BioHiTech we are focused on educating and empowering municipalities and organizations to embrace the use of alternative fuels and reduce that carbon footprint.
BioHiTech introduces a proven, clean alternative to landfill for the disposal of solid waste to the United States. For municipalities facing landfill end of life issues, our High Efficiency Biological Treatment (HEBioT™) technology can extend the useful life by 500x. Our facilities can be thought of as a renewable landfill that has no finite capacity.
The nation’s first fully operational resource re covery facility, located in Martinsburg, West. Virginia, utilizes Entsorga Italia’s proprietary BioHiTech HEBioT mechanical biological treatment (“MBT”) process.
The process utilizes a combination of automated sorting equipment, enhanced biological composting, and mechanical refinement to convert waste into an alternative fuel. During the process, recyclable commodities such as metals, are extracted and recovered in conjunction with a community’s current recycling program. The technology allows for up to 80% diversion of MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) and C&I (Construction and Industrial Waste) from landfills. This waste generated locally can be managed locally, reducing transportation costs and distances.
Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) is a sustainable and deliverable source of renewable energy. The use of SRF can displace fossil fuels and their associated CO2 emissions.
SRF is the principal output at BioHiTech’s Entsorga West Virginia facility which is designed to process Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and produce SRF. SRF is produced to a defined specification. Close monitoring and testing of the fuel through accredited laboratories provides a high level of quality assurance and control.
As SRF has a high carbon neutral biomass content, its use can displace the CO2 emissions associated with the use of fossil fuels. As a key driver for numerous businesses in seeking to comply with legislative targets, the carbon agenda has made the use of fuels such as SRF increasingly appealing.
The use of SRF can reduce fuel costs as well as environmental impacts. BioHiTech can guarantee quality, security of supply and price over contract periods of up to 10 years.
BioHiTech has undergone initial testing with a US-based engineering firm servicing the federal government, to use its SRF as a replacement for coal in thermal processing applications for steam boilers and power plants and is also collaborating with a renewable materials manufacturer based in Israel that is expected to begin testing the SRF as feedstock for its renewable thermoplastic.
The BioHiTech HEBioT technology is ideal for municipalities, regional waste haulers, large generators of food waste and corporations with Zero Waste initiatives.
- Produces a high-quality EPA recognized Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF)
- Reduces landfill usage by up to 80%.
- Addresses the non-recyclable plastics problem.
- Delivers a zero-landfill solution.
- No increased costs to haulers or municipalities.
- Outside environment is not exposed to waste.
- Improved working conditions:
- Waste is unloaded and processed inside the facility.
- BioFilter removes odors and contaminants.
- Fully automated, with no workers sorting or handling waste.
A future with less waste is a future less wasted
