SOUTHERN RESEARCH LICENSES TECHNOLOGY TO AGRA FOR ‘WASTE-TO-ENERGY’ PROJECT
AGRA Energy’s commitment to progress, innovation and renewable energy extends beyond business to the very communities that we engage. We want to inspire. We want to lead. We want to transform.
Waste from cities, restaurants and farms across the nation presents a problem because of resulting greenhouse gas emissions, but innovative technology developed by Southern Research could soon help address environmental concerns and spark investment that supports dynamic change.
Under a licensing deal that is the first of its kind, Southern Research’s Energy & Environment (E&E) division is providing an Irvine, California-based company with patented technology and specialized equipment for a “waste-to-energy” project.
Agriculture is a key marketspace for Agra Energy Corp. By partnering with dairy farmers across the nation, Agra Energy intends to use an advanced chemical-conversion process developed by Southern Research scientists to turn cow manure into clean, renewable fuels conventionally produced from crude oil.
