Idaho Falls, ID— Intrepid
Technology and Resources, Inc. (ITR) a renewable energy company
and Organix Inc. an organic residuals management firm announced
the signing of an agreement to market ITR’s processed animal
waste residuals and join efforts to help large livestock operations
achieve a near zero waste process.
ITR is producing as a bi-product,
from their biogas facility in Rupert, Idaho, a unique high nutrient
fiber material similar in size and composition to peat moss. Organix
with expertise in soil amendment design, production, and marketing,
has found that ITR’s product could command a premium resell
value when sold to organic gardeners, landscape supply yards and
ITR has produced over 1,000 cubic
yards of this fiber which will be immediately purchased by Organix.
The product will be sold regionally in bulk. ITR is producing
this fiber at an annual rate of 5,000 cubic yards per year at
the Rupert site. Additionally the new WestPoint biogas plant and
expanded Whitesides facility will add an additional 50,000 cubic
yards of annual production of high quality digested fiber.
