Celli, Chief Executive Officer of BioHiTech Global stated, "With our vision for a sustainable future in waste management now becoming a reality, our flagship Martinsburg HEBioT facility has become a living breathing example of how we can utilize technology to effectively address the growing problem of waste disposal in this country. Corporate and Municipal leaders continue to struggle with achieving their landfill diversion and sustainability goals and with managing their way through the growing recycling challenges we face in this country. We are confident that our HEBioT facilities will be an important part of the solution to both of these problems and help to forge a long awaited change to the traditional waste industry. Providing our customers and constituents with an opportunity to tour this revolutionary facility before reaching full production, allows us to thoroughly display the biological and technical features that are being utilized to achieve approximately 80% landfill diversion while creating an EPA recognized renewable fuel source. Based on the positive feedback we have received from all visitors thus far we are more confident than ever that we can accelerate the growth of our HEBioT business for many years to come."
The Martinsburg HEBioT Facility will process up to 110,000 tons per year of municipal solid waste while diverting as much as 80% of what enters the facility from landfills. The 56,000 square foot Facility is completely enclosed and fully automated with no waste being exposed to the outside environment and no workers in direct contact to the waste processing. The Facility utilizes a patented high efficiency mechanical and biological treatment process ("HEBioT Process") that produces an EPA recognized solid recovered fuel that can be used as a partial replacement for coal in various applications. The company will continue to provide facility tours to interested parties upon request.
