Global Resource Recovery Organization, Inc (GRRO) has entered into a formal agreement with Farm Pilot Project Coordination, Inc, in conjunction with the USDA’s National Resources Conservation Service to form a new joint-venture company to commercialize the GRRO’s Tempest Dying Technology in animal feeding operations.
The new joint venture will be a Florida limited-liability company with all of its operations located in Eldora, IA. The first project in swine manure is well underway and will be located in Iowa’s Hardin County. A new 2,400-head swine confinement operation will be built using state-of-the art technologies that will capture at least 75 percent of the nutrients from the operation and eliminate all liquid manure on a daily basis, the company says.
There will be no on-site, long-term storage of liquid manure with this new process. Daily production of manure is gathered and processed with the end product being an easily handled dry fertilizer product that can be stored and used when needed by the farmer. Farm Pilot Project Coordination, Inc, a non-profit organization, was designated by the US Congress to assist in implementing innovative treatment technologies to address the growing waste issues associated with animal feeding operations. FPPC’s objective is to foster the conservation, development and wise use of land, water, and related resources, while providing animal feeding operations with opportunities for profitable operation.
Significant progress has been made with the FPPC Program. To date, 14 pilot projects have been selected covering innovative technologies for poultry, dairy, swine and composting operations in seven states including: North Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Texas, Colorado, Utah and Iowa. These pilot projects are in various stages of development, implementation and operation while six project demonstrations are nearing completion.
The new joint-venture company will take the work funded by the FPPC program to a new level by combining the business resources of the FPPC with the innovative technology from GRRO.
