Liquid livestock

Lacombe gets biorefining facility from Biosphere Technologies.

Biosphere Technologies has also been assessing the market potential of the “liquid cow” that emerges from its Biorefinex process.

In addition to serving as organic fertilizer, the molasses-like substance can be fractionated into biochemical products like fatty acids, amino acids, minerals and other elements.

It might also be used in an anaerobic digester to create biogas, which in turn could generate electricity and thermal energy.

“You have these various options,” said Schmidt. “It depends what products you’re making and what markets would be the best.

“What we’re going to explore is all the different ways this stuff can be made into valuable industrial products.”
