An Organically Certifiable Method of Producing Ammonium Nitrate for Fertigation of Organic Vegetable Production

Market Overview:

This technology features a novel approach to forming ammonia and/or ammonium that does not use nonrenewable resources as starting or intermediate materials and that does not require the use of any synthetic or hazardous compounds. Also featured are the bioreactors used to carry out these methods. This approach features an environmentally friendly method for producing ammonia and ammonium necessary for many applications, including organic farming. Demand continues to grow for organically grown produce due primarily to the high nutritional quality of the produce and the ability to keep soils and local environments healthier. Produce farmed using ammonia and/or ammonium formed from these methods can be certifiably organic to most if not all known certification standards.

Benefits:

· Does not use nonrenewable resources as starting or intermediate materials

· Does not require the use of any synthetic or hazardous compounds

· Environmentally friendly method for producing ammonia and ammonium necessary for many applications, including organic farming

· Can be certifiably organic to most if not all known certification standards
