BCR Environmental, based in Jacksonville, has developed two new technologies to convert human waste to recycled usable materials suitable for land applications.

At Jacksonville Naval Air Station, using the BCR technology, the Navy has reduced its energy consumption for biosolids treatment by 95% and reduced greenhouse emissions by 480 tons per year. The company projects the Navy will save about $146,500 a year over the next 20 years.

The company also has completed more than $100 million in public-private partnerships, which have reduced the cost of human waste management by an average of 40%; eliminated more than 15,000 megawatts per year of energy consumption; addressed environmental health and safety issues; and provided for the recycling of more than 120,00 tons per year of organic waste.
