Value Dramatically Increasing in Clean Energy Solutions While Waste to Energy Conversion Develops
Palm Beach, FL – (December 04, 2018) — The market for renewable energies continues to develop and evolve as the demand for sustainable fuel sources continues to rise in light of economic and political pressures. According to the International Energy Agency, over $1.8 trillion was spent on clean and renewable energies in 2017. The rising level of investment is being driven by an increased emphasis on developing environmentally friendly energy sources as society steadily distances itself from traditional fossil fuels. An increased emphasis on sustainability is driving prominent growth, while tech and energy leaders are also recognizing the recurring value in renewable energy sources and the ability to convert waste into output. Perfect example is in Entsorga West Virginia, where a resource recovery facility will process mixed municipal solid waste (MSW) into a clean-burning fuel that is ready to begin operations very soon. Renewable energy usage has doubled in the United States since 2008, illustrating just how quickly this market is developing.. Active companies in the markets this week include BioHiTech Global, Inc. (NASDAQ:BHTG), Vivint Solar Inc. (NYSE:VSLR), Enphase Energy Inc. (NASDAQ:ENPH), Waste Management Inc. (NYSE:WM), Advanced Disposal Services Inc. (NYSE:ADSW).
BioHiTech Global, Inc. (NASDAQ:BHTG) BREAKING NEWS: BioHiTech Global, a technology and services company that provides cost-effective and sustainable waste management solutions, today announced that BioHiTech’s Entsorga West Virginia, LLC (“EWV”) subsidiary has completed an $8 million tax-exempt bond financing to finalize construction and commence operations at the nation’s first HEBioTtm renewable resource recovery facility located in Martinsburg, West Virginia (the “Martinsburg Facility”).
Ziegler, a privately held investment bank, capital markets and proprietary investments firm, acted as sole placement agent for the $8,000,000 Series 2018-A tax-exempt bonds issued on behalf of EWV. BioHiTech recently entered into a definitive agreement to become the largest owner of EWV which the Company expects to close in the coming weeks. Other minority partners include: Apple Valley Waste Technologies, a portfolio company of Kinderhook Industries, LLC, and Entsorga USA, a company owned by the principals of the Italian engineering firm that developed the HEBioT technology. Another Kinderhook portfolio company, Apple Valley Waste, an affiliate of Apple Valley Waste Technologies, will be providing feedstock and certain business services for the operations.
The Martinsburg Facility is expected to begin commissioning in December 2018 utilizing a patented high efficiency mechanical and biological treatment process (“HEBioT Process”) for the disposal and recycling of mixed municipal solid waste into an EPA approved solid recovered fuel (“SRF”). Upon becoming fully operational, the facility will have a capacity to accept up to 120,000 tons per year of inbound municipal solid waste, converting as much as 45% of that waste into a SRF that is contracted to be sold to a multi-billion dollar cement company with operations nearby.
BioHiTech plans to build a series of facilities utilizing the patented HEBioT process in the US in the coming years. A second site is currently under development in Rensselaer, NY with other potential locations in early stage planning.
Commenting on the financing, Frank E. Celli, Chief Executive Officer of BioHiTech Global stated, “We are excited to have EWV complete the last stage of financing prior to completion of the Martinsburg Facility. The opening of this facility will represent a new sustainable direction for the waste management industry in the United States and we look forward to leading the way toward a more responsible approach to waste disposal along with our partners at Gold Medal and Entsorga.” Read this full announcement and more news for BHTG at: https://www.financialnewsmedia.com/news-bhtg/
