TOLEDO, Ohio, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- N-Viro International Corporation, (OTC Bulletin Board: NVIC), an environmental and materials operating company that owns patented technologies to convert various types of waste into beneficial alternative fuel products, announces its renewable biofuel technology, N-Viro Fuel(TM), has satisfied guidelines set forth by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to qualify as an alternative energy source that may be utilized in commercial power generation.
Attaining this status means that N-Viro Fuel technology is now eligible to qualify for certain economic incentives that are granted alternative energy technologies, and it is also a catalyst for attaining permits in each state in a more timely manner. The Company plans to accelerate its development efforts as this designation is an important factor for its potential energy partners.
In a proactive approach, the Company requested the EPA determine whether N-Viro Fuel qualifies within current regulations as an alternative fuel product, as opposed to a waste product that would be subject to incineration. The result of its request was the receipt of a written determination from the EPA that N-Viro Fuel qualifies as an alternative fuel.
The EPA sets forth various and stringent regulations for technologies such as N-Viro Fuel to qualify as alternative fuel. These regulations encompass three different regulatory divisions: water, air and solid waste. The N-Viro Fuel technology, utilizing an alkaline/heat process to produce a fuel product, satisfies all requirements of the EPA 40 CFR part 503 regulations and can be blended with coal for energy production or land applied for agricultural use as N-Viro Soil(TM). The Company's technologies can convert waste products that traditionally are landfilled, into safe, beneficial and renewable long-term energy solutions.
