Ag Conversions Grand Lake St. Marys

  1. 1. Green Done RightTM<br />Grand St. Mary’s Lake<br />Lake Improvement Association (LIA)<br />Celina, Ohio <br />
  2. 2. Amiran Technologies Mission Statement<br />Our mission is to provide unique, ecologically sound, cost effective solutions for the decontamination of Agricultural & Industrial waste streams worldwide in a fashion that restores the environment to a pristine state while promoting beneficial reuse. <br />
  3. 3. Corporate Overview<br />
  4. 4. Amiran Technologies<br />
  5. 5. Earth- Plant <br />Green Done Right!<br />Feed -Animal<br />Waste to Ag Conversion<br />Completing the Cycle…<br />
  6. 6. Unmatched Value<br />Three Primary Benefits of Partnering with Amiran Technologies <br />Upstream- Amiran Technologies is uniquely positioned to convert animal waste into a stabilized Highly Efficient Organic Fertilizer (HEOF) that can compete with synthetic fertilizers . <br />Downstream - Our innovative and proprietary technologies can also convert contaminated dredged sediment into a high-performing, enriched, fortified commercial grade potting soil. Our 100% beneficial reuse process eliminates the need for the stockpiling of sediment in expensive landfills. <br />Highly Scalable & Sustainable - Ensuring growth for the Ag Community while restoring Grand St. Mary’s Lake and Watershed’s water quality. As an integral part of the long-term solution, Amiran Technologies will be providing hundreds of permanent, high-paying jobs to the Mercer County area.<br /> <br />
  7. 7. Goals<br />Reduce and Restrict Availability of Phosphorous in the Grand St. Mary’s Lake Watershed<br />Address Odor Control, Nutrient Loads and Cyanobacteria Blooms<br />Convert Dredged Sediments to a Beneficial Reuse Product (Nutrient rich potting soil)<br />Turnkey Solution; Employment Opportunities<br />Advance Lake Restoration while Prompting Agriculture Growth<br />
  8. 8. Amiran ApproachPhase #1 – Production Facilities<br />1. Amiran Technologies to build Two Production Facilities<br />Upstream – Animal Manure / Fertilizer Run-off<br />Stop/reduce the usage of manure as fertilizer in farms in the watershed <br />Convert manure to Organic Fertilizer<br />Downstream – Remediation of Lake & Watershed<br />Process dredged sediment eliminating need for storing in embayments, littoral wetlands, or landfills<br />Convert dredged sediment into a beneficial reuse product - (nutrient rich potting soil)<br />
  9. 9. Amiran ApproachPhase #2 – Mitigation of Animal Waste<br />2. Mitigation Process - Manure<br />Collect Solid and Liquid Animal Manure – (Hog, Turkey, Poultry, Dairy)<br />Local Partners to collect Manure and deliver to our Processing Plant in Watershed<br />Convert Manure to Stabilized, HEOF<br />Free of Pathogens / E-Coli<br />100% Beneficial Reuse<br />Bulk of Organic Fertilizer sold outside of County / State<br />

  12. 12. Amiran ApproachPhase #3 – Mitigation of Dredged Sediment<br />3.Mitigation Process – Dredged Sediment<br />Dredged Sediment Deposited at Amiran’s near-lake Production Plant<br />Eliminates Landfill & Transportation Costs<br />Convert Sediment to Stabilized, Highly Efficient, Fortified, Enriched Potting Soil <br />100% Beneficial Reuse<br />Bulk of Potting Soil sold outside of County/ State<br />
  13. 13. Proof of Concept….<br />Lake Sediment - #2<br />Lake Sediment - #1<br />High-Value Potting Soil<br />
  14. 14. Amiran ApproachPhase #4 – Long-Term Considerations<br />Remove the Algae<br />- Harvest the algae as a biomass as a feed source or other organic material base<br />- Reduces load to the watershed<br />Can be processed at Amiran Technologies Facility<br />Create "Green Zone" Around Lake<br />Utilize Phosphorus rich sediment and amendments to create the "Green Zone“<br />Plant natural plants to take up phosphorus<br />"Green Zone" will filter incoming runoff/sediment to the lake<br />Size and location of green zone to be determined by amount and quality of runoff feeding each area of the lake<br />Aquatic Species management<br />
  15. 15. Amiran ApproachPhase #4 – Long-Term Considerations…con’t<br />Deep Dredge the Lake<br />Deepen the lake by 3 to 5 feet.<br />Will reduce the overall lake temperature which will have a positive impact on pH and microbial activity<br />Will reduce the Phosphorus mass stored in the lake<br />Convert the dredged sediment to soil and other grow media <br />Aquatic Species Management<br />Removal of invasive species (Carp, etc)<br />Restock lake with natural balance species (Perch, Bass, Walleye, etc.)<br />
  16. 16. Benefits<br />Unique, patented and patent pending processes developed from over 22 years of fine particle remediation research<br />Proven capabilities with the U.S. EPA for fine particle remediation <br />Eliminate odor<br />Stabilize dredged material, converting it to a nutrient-rich potting soil<br />Process is highly scalable<br />Provides hundreds of jobs and economic growth for the community – reversing negative economic trends<br />
  17. 17. Reinvigorate! <br />Agriculture Economy <br />Recreation / Tourism Economy<br />Manufacturing Base<br />Real Estate Property Values<br />
  18. 18. Where we are…..<br />Upstream – Process of securing commitment from local producers committing waste for HEOF production in the range of….<br />100,000 Tons Swine<br />50,000 Tons of Poultry / Turkey<br />Downstream – Seeking commitment from State of Ohio for dredged sediment for nutrient rich Potting Soil production<br />Financing - In process of securing long-term financing. Working with Municipal & State Officials.<br />
