The VermiDigest by BioFiltro
Happy new year from BioFiltro! 2024 is off to a great start and we have lots of exciting news to share with our worm family.
This year, we expect to build BIDA systems at 7 California dairies. Once they’re operational, our systems will allow these dairies to avoid approximately 7 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions (CO2). That’s the equivalent of taking more than 1 million cars off the roads for a full year. Our small and growing company will have a huge impact on environmental protection, sustainability, and so much more.
Between grant funding and partnering with a large carbon credit buyer, BioFiltro is able to cover 100% of the costs of our vermifiltration systems for these farmers. The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and the California Dairy Research Foundation (CDRF) announced $21.41M in grant funding to 31 projects for the Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP), and $14.23 million in grant funding to 12 projects for the Dairy Plus Program. We’re proud to announce that six California dairies were awarded $12M through these programs to install these upgrades including vermifiltration systems in partnership with BioFiltro.
In addition, 3 California dairy farmers were awarded $3.7M from CDFA’s Dairy Plus grant program to install post-digestor vermifilters to remove excess nutrients like Nitrogen.
Recently, BioFiltro was featured in a video by 3Degrees Group, Inc. In this exclusive behind-the-scenes look, 3Degrees explores innovative methane reduction practices on local farms, including BioFiltro’s vermifilter at Royal Dairy, WA. You can watch the full interview on YouTube.
