BioNitrogen Receives TEFRA Approval of $1.25 Billion Tax-Exempt Bonds for Five BioNitrogen Plants in Pointe Coupee Parish, LA

DORAL, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) -  BioNitrogen Louisiana Holdings, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BioNitrogen Corporation (PINKSHEETS: BION), a cleantech company that utilizes exclusive technology to build environmentally-friendly plants that convert biomass into urea fertilizer, announced today the TEFRA approval by the Louisiana Attorney General to issue up to $1.25 billion in tax-exempt bonds for the acquisition, development and construction of five plants in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana.

In April, BioNitrogen received approval from the Louisiana State Bond Commission to issue the tax-exempt bonds.

"The Florida plant currently in the process of being designed will be able to produce 520 tons per day of high-quality urea and we expect that the initial plant in Pointe Coupee will be able to leverage off of the completed designs."
