NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Bion Environmental Technologies, Inc. (OTC QB: BNET), a developer of comprehensive livestock waste treatment technology that generates multiple new revenue streams while largely mitigating the environmental impacts of large-scale livestock production, announced that it has received a new U.S. patent that strengthens the coverage of its third generation (3G) technology platform.
Patent No. 10,793,458 was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on October 6, 2020. The patent describes the formation of ammonium bicarbonate in Bion’s 3G system from the ammonia, carbon dioxide and water vapor contained in the waste stream, and the further crystallization of that ammonium bicarbonate. Essentially, the patent covers the production of concentrated ammonia (nitrogen) fertilizer products in crystal (solid) form, from a livestock waste stream. The patent significantly strengthens Bion’s IP position, not only by covering current methods, but also by laying a foundation for future development.
