Fibrowatt LLC

United States

#1 Feb 4, 2010
Hold the presses! I was just informed of the Fibrowatt LLC dealings with the State of VA and Page County. I have some great news for Del.Todd Gilbert and the state taxpayers of VA, but maybe not so great for the unemployed in Page County or for the sales team of Fibrowatt LLC. There is a more economical way to solve the problem while creating a minimal impact on the environment, and it will provide a commodity from the waste material that pays for the process. Unfortunately, hundreds of workers to build multi-million dollar facilities will not be needed. While it is possible that it could provide a significant number of local jobs, they would not initially be on the scale of what is presently being proposed, but quite possibly could exceed their estimates accounting for future growth. However, it does accomplish the major objective of being environmentally green and this process can successfully dispose of poultry, livestock, and pig wastes at a fraction of the cost. Minimal land is required, minimal trucking is required, no harmful gasses are emitted and no ash is remaining to dispose of, and the farmers of Page County are going to be happier than the proverbial pigs in sh--.
Has anyone guessed yet? It's called "Earthworm Biotechnology for the Management of Effluents from Intensively Housed Livestock".(Outlook on Agriculture, Volume 18, No.2,1989 0030-7270/89 Pergamon Press)
Simply stated: several species of earthworms are used, including the most commonly known as "red worms" used extensively for back yard composting. A large scale project utilizing this method exclusively for handling cattle manure and producing a nutrient rich marketable compost product that is in compliance with all USEPA land application regulations is presently being done in Avon N.Y. and was awarded a federal grant to start this immensely successful operation. The overall benefits are numerous and it is a revolutionary approach that could rival the initial introduction of solar power and wind power in terms of its benefits to the overall economic and environmental climate of the future.

I will be contacting Del. Gilbert to schedule a time where I can make a presentation that more fully describes this alternative solution and how it will be more benefit to the taxpayer, the poultry owners, the community, and the local environment. I am the son-in-law of Dr. Roy Hartenstein, the author of numerous scientific papers, including that which is noted above.

My proposal will incorporate a solution that incorporates not only poultry litter, but addresses the county’s overall waste problems not only for the present, but more importantly in the future.

Sounds perfect - in fact I think it's a brilliant idea. When can you get started?

Fibrowatt won't bring that many jobs, they promise 100 but it really turns out to be only a dozen or so, they count the truck drivers as new jobs...but in reality those already exist they would just have a new destination.

If you get any hassle from the county let me know, I have some land in Page Co. zoned commercial already......
