BioNitrogen Issued Patent for Production of Urea Using Stranded Natural Gas

DORAL, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2015) - BioNitrogen Holdings Corp. (OTC PINK: BION), a cleantech company that utilizes patented technology to build environmentally-friendly plants that convert biomass into urea fertilizer, announced today that it has been awarded a patent (US Patent Application No. 13/389,239), Modularized System and Method for Urea Production Using Stranded Natural Gas, for the manufacturing of urea using Stranded Natural Gas as a feedstock.

"This is great news and we are excited to add this patent to our portfolio of technologies. Many fossil fuel operations simply flare off natural gas as an unwanted by-product of their production. Worldwide, over 140 billion cubic meters of natural gas is flared annually by these operations. Now, we have the ability and technology to utilize this stranded natural gas and convert it to urea fertilizer or other products that use urea as a feedstock," said Carlos Contreras, Chairman and CEO of BioNitrogen.

"The implications for BioNitrogen are significant in that we now have a process that can be used to take an otherwise wasted resource, the stranded or flared-off natural gas, and make useful products instead," said Mario Beruvides, PhD, BioNitrogen co-founder and Professor of Engineering at Texas Tech University.

"I'm excited about the potential this patent holds for BioNitrogen," declared James Simonton, PhD, BioNitrogen co-founder and Associate Professor of Engineering at the University of Tennessee. "We should see increased development of urea processing using Stranded Natural Gas because the flare-off process is damaging to the environment. This patent also has the potential to drop the air emissions pollution when the stranded natural gas is released and burned into the atmosphere."
