Bion Outlines Differences between its Patented Comprehensive Livestock Environmental Treatment Technology and Anaerobic Digesters
Date:6/23/2008

NEW YORK, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bion Environmental Technologies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BNET) today outlined the capabilities and performance of its comprehensive livestock environmental treatment technology compared to anaerobic digesters.

Anaerobic or methane digestion (AD) has been used to produce energy from livestock waste since the late 1800s. While its efficiency has improved over the years, it is still based on a biological process that produces biogas (which generally contains around 60% methane). Bion's patented and proven nutrient management technology has been developed over the last 20 years to provide comprehensive environmental treatment of the livestock waste stream. Bion's Environmental Management System simultaneously (with scale) recovers substantially more renewable energy than AD.

There has been a great deal of recent publicity surrounding anaerobic digesters: promoting their ability to recover energy from livestock waste as well as provide two primary environmental benefits: reduced greenhouse gas emissions and odors. For instance,

-- A January 2008 press release stated that Oregon's 320 dairy farms could become power generators through the Dairy Power Initiative from Energy Trust of Oregon. Dairy farms that install anaerobic digesters can receive cash incentives to turn manure into biogas, and 'generate climate-safe electricity.'

-- According to AgStar, a federal program that promotes the conversion of manure to energy (and the AD process), there are more than 100 anaerobic digesters operating in the United States today, with another 80 on the drawing boards.

-- Dean Foods Company, the largest processor and distributor of milk and other dairy products in the U.S., announced in May that it has begun development of an anaerobic digester on the Big Sky Dairy farm near Gooding, Idaho. Dean Foods has partnered with AgPower Partners 'to bring this important and sustainable dairy industry solut
