Majestic Crossing DairyLocation: Wisconsin | Industry: Farming | Technology: Waste-to-Energy, Organic Fertilizer | Role: Developer
BioStar and its equipment suppliers have extensive experience in handling and processing dairy manure. Dairy waste is more difficult to process than other waste since it contains high amounts of fiber and a lower concentration of ammonia — making a fertilizer plant more profitable due to the high volumes of waste.
BioStar partnered with Majestic Crossings Dairy in Sheboygan Falls, WI to successfully run a solid-liquid separation system that produces the same centrifuge system to remove the fiber, separate the suspended solids and reverse osmosis, which separates the dissolved solids. BioStar’s patented process produces the secret sauce, SuperSix™ Organic Liquid Fertilizer. During the final evaporation step, the system removes water and concentrates the Nitrogen, resulting in the final product.
Not only does SuperSix™ meet National Organic Program (NOP) requirements for farming, it’s easy to handle, will not settle and has a very low freezing temperature. Additionally, manure pathogens and harmful bacteria are destroyed during the anaerobic digestion process, resulting in an OMRI Listed product that’s safe to use on fruits and vegetables.
HOW IT WORKS
Du Bois Integrity Academy
Location: GA |
Industry: Education |
Technology: Electricity |
Du Bois Integrity Academy has leveraged a partnership between BioStar Renewables and Charter School Energy to enhance and upgrade the school by adding a new layer of protection in the building’s HVAC system. The project is expected to have considerable annual energy savings for the school, while improving the interior and exterior lighting, adding in smart building controls to maximize energy savings and installing an Indoor Air Quality system that actively combats coronavirus, bacteria, mold and more.
City of Norman, OklahomaLocation: OK | Industry: Municipal | Technology: Electricity | Role: Developer
The City of Norman & BioStar Renewables have achieved interconnection and are producing renewable electricity at the city’s new solar project which serves the Vernon Campbell Water Treatment Plant and Water Reclamation Facility in Norman, Oklahoma. The 2.27 MW solar project is expected to produce more than 3,000,000 kWh of electricity each year and will displace over 2,126 metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions per year, the equivalent of providing 438 homes with electricity or 271,000 gallons of gasoline consumed for an entire year. The clean energy generated by the solar arrays will reduce the annual kWh required from the local utility company by approximately 30%.
BioStar developed the project, as well as providing the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, as well as ongoing operations and maintenance (O&M) services. E Light Electric partnered with BioStar and played a pivotal role in delivering the project. Implementation of these solar arrays will set the city on a path toward achieving their Net-Zero Carbon goal across city buildings, and marks the beginning of a transition to more balanced energy mixture.
San Bernardino Waste-to-EnergyLocation: California | Industry: | Technology: Waste-to-Energy Organic Fertilizer | Role: Owner / Operator
Turning Food Waste Into Renewable Energy
HOW IT WORKS
Beginning in 2022, the San Bernardino Waste-to-Energy project will divert 93,850 tons of pre-consumer food waste from the Coachella and Lambs Canyon landfills each year. As a result, 85,000 gallons per day or 31,025,000 gallons of food waste per year will create:
21,637,200 kWh of Electricity
849,000 Gallons of SuperSix™ Fertilizer
18,250 Tons of Compostable Fiber
19,876,800 Gallons of Clean Water
Industrial reuse per year
Greenhouse Gas Emission reductions equivalent to:
Avg. passenger vehicle

The purpose of the proposed solar power facility is to supplement the current power generated by Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA) from biogas and to reduce peak loads from Southern California Edison (SCE) with electricity supplied from the solar photovoltaic system. The proposed solar power facility (SPF) is designed to generate up to one (1) megawatt of electricity from the photovoltaic system and the SPF is proposed to be installed on the CCWRF project site. The proposed project consists of installing the SPF panels at one of several open location on the CCWRF site and connecting these panels to the SCE electrical grid which is located adjacent to the project site. All of the above proposed activities will occur within the footprint of existing disturbed areas at the CCWRF site.
