BioNitrogen Holdings Corporation, a cleantech company that utilizes exclusive technology to build environmentally-friendly plants that convert biomass into urea fertilizer, announced that it has signed an agreement with the Casale Group of Switzerland to employ its ammonia and urea plant technology for BioNitrogen’s first plant in Hardee County. Casale has either built or refurbished more than 400 ammonia and urea plants worldwide and is a market leader in ammonia and urea technologies.

“Employing Casale’s technology and existing designs will allow us to increase the plant’s production capacity from 360 tpd (tons per day) to 520tpd, thereby improving the plant’s economics significantly," said Bryan Kornegay Jr., president and CFO of BioNitrogen. “The technology will reduce both the investment per ton of production and the engineering time. We have partnered with Casale because it is the only company with such extensive in-house experience, expertise and technology in combined ammonia and urea plant technology, process and equipment design.”

BioNitrogen's VP of Operations, Ernie Iznaga added, "We recently completed a comprehensive search for the best-in-class ammonia and urea technology providers and selected the Casale Group as having a very impressive combination of technology, in-house engineering capability, responsiveness and cost for our requirements. They are an excellent complement to the team and I'm very confident they will accelerate completion of the engineering."

"We are very happy to have been selected by BioNitrogen for this project and look forward to working with them on the first plant in Florida. Casale will be providing leading edge ammonia and urea technologies and design experience and are excited about moving the project forward," said  Giuseppe Guarino, Casale Group CEO.

Casale joins a prestigious group of partners that include the CCC Group, which will construct the plant and AMEC, which is managing all the engineering for the project.
