Harp Renewables Establishes American Distribution and Manufacturing Office

DUBLIN | Source: Harp Renewables – Harp Renewables, Dublin, Ireland, is proud to announce the establishment of BioNova America Inc., based in Austin, TX to open distribution channels in N. and S. American markets for its “waterless” digester system that reduces organic waste mass and volume by 70% on average and up to 80%-90% for waste water DAF sludge.  BioNova is the first continuous feed digester that does not use any fresh water and has no gray water discharge to the trade waste sewers.

Food waste collected in bio-degradable (PLA) garbage bags are thrown whole into the system leaving clean totes ready for the next shift. The BioNova system will also process compostable dinnerware and cutlery from Vegware and other PLA suppliers with the food waste. Most importantly, the (pathogen free) biomass output is stable and will not rot or smell if rehydrated and can be land applied as an organic fertilizer. BioNova also provides close coupled biomass boilers that use the output to generate heat and hot water.

BioNova manufactures six different on-site machines that will process two hundred lbs to six tons per day. BioNova’ s unique enzymes never need replacement and if the system is unused for two days or two months, the system comes to life again when food waste is inserted.

Harp Renewables has appointed Sonny Burkett as CEO of BioNova USA. Mr. Burkett was the first to introduce food waste dehydrator systems to N. America and has over ten years’ experience in developing OE and aftermarket distribution channels in the organics waste recycling industry. Mr. Burkett states; “The BioNova is truly unique in providing the most end user friendly and cost-effective system with an expected life span of fifteen years plus based on real life client use in Europe.”

BioNova offers the systems for sale, rental or long-term lease and plans to build systems in the USA.
