Cyber Enviro-Tech, Inc. of Scottsdale, Arizona, formerly NexGen Holdings, Corp. announces a contract for the development of a pilot biomethane digester used for electricity and power on a dairy operation in Utah. The approximate $1.5 million pilot brings the reality of a profitable biomethane operation to midsize dairies below 2000 head of cattle, previously too expensive for smaller dairy farms. 2000 head was the prior breakeven point required to install biowaste digesters before Cyber Enviro-Tech entered the market.
According to the 2017 US Department of Agriculture Census, figures show roughly 39,210 dairy farms and 26,586 feedlots are in operation. Of dairy operations alone, over 1000 are located in California where the state mandate is to reduce methane emissions by 40%. Dairy and livestock operations have been targeted as a 50% or higher contributor to California’s Short-Lived Climate Pollutants [SLCP]. Senate Bill 32 and 1383 mandate compliance of the 40% reduction by 2030.
Cyber Enviro-Tech’s target of 1500 head of cattle and up represents the top 25% of dairy and feedlot operations in the country. The City of Grand Junction, Colorado for example provides enough converted methane to power their fleet of waste disposal trucks using biomethane Digesters saving them over $500,000 a year in fuel costs. Colorado also has numerous mining operations which have started a decade ago converting their diesel-powered vehicles to natural gas and lead the nation in natural gas conversion. The state of Utah is currently engaged in converting their bus fleets and other industries over to the cleaner operation of natural gas.
Of the combined 66,000 dairy and feedlots farms in the USA, Cyber Enviro-Tech is seeking 1.8% of the market for installation of their highly efficient and cost effective biomethane digesters. It represents $1.8 billion in revenue on the low end and as much as $4 billion for operations over 3000 head of cattle. Cyber Enviro-Tech’s technological advances in the science of water and waste conversion look promising to provide mainstream dairy farms and feedlots a competitive edge in the market.
