CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y., — BioHiTech Global, Inc. (“BioHiTech” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BHTG), a sustainable technology and services company, has entered into a project management services agreement with Lone Cypress Energy Services, LLC (“Lone Cypress) to evaluate and develop new High-Efficiency Biological Treatment (HEBioTTM) projects. Together, the two companies will also explore additional uses of Solid Recovered Fuel (“SRF”) and other potential fuels that could be developed.
Lone Cypress will take a lead role in environmental permitting and regulatory compliance services related to the development of additional patented HEBioT facilities and in the renewable energy business sector. This includes any additional projects in connection with solar, hydrogen, and other renewable technologies. BioHiTech and Lone Cypress are also in discussions with several general construction and engineering management services firms to guide construction and provide cost management oversight in executing future opportunities.
“We are pleased to be working with Lone Cypress to provide project analysis, management, and industry understanding of waste-to-energy projects that enables our team to better capitalize on the many inquiries we are receiving about our HEBioT technology,” stated Tony Fuller, CEO of BioHiTech. “Our Companies are currently exploring additional uses for our SRF, such as fuel for cogeneration and as a feedstock for bio-plastics.”
BioHiTech launched its first HEBioT resource recovery facility in Martinsburg, West Virginia in 2019. That facility is capable of processing 110,000 tons of municipal solid waste annually while producing nearly 50,000 tons of SRF for use by cement manufacturing partners as a partial replacement for coal.
As communities around the United States have looked to find solutions for municipal solid waste disposal, BioHiTech has established a successful model for making a useful product out of refuse resulting in significant diversion from landfills and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, our sorting of municipal solid waste has increased the amount of recycled metals going to market that would have otherwise been landfilled.
“BioHiTech is one of the preeminent members of the waste management community, and we look forward to working in partnership with this esteemed firm. Their cutting-edge HEBioT technology has amazing potential for the domestic waste industry. Merging our project execution experience with their industry knowledge positions us well for future growth. We look forward to working with BioHiTech on these exciting opportunities,” said Greg Brooks, President of Lone Cypress.
