VADADORA – Ceres Biosystems India Pvt Ltd today officially opened its first organic fertilizer processing facility in India, in the City of Vadadora, Gujarat. The facility will source organic waste material from the City of Vadodara and combine it with other raw materials provided by Gujarat State Fertilizer Corporation (“GSFC”) for conversion into a nutrient-rich fertilizer product.
“We are pleased that Ceres India is utilizing leading Canadian technology to produce this very important and much needed affordable natural fertilizer for sale in our markets,” said Atanu Chakraborty, Managing Director GSFC. Area farmers will purchase the product under the name of Sardar Nirmal by GSFC.
“We are a Canadian company that focuses on providing sustainable solutions to improving soils by recovering essential nutrients from organic waste streams” said Ceres India Chairman Kevin Andrews. “We are proud to be using proven Canadian technology to provide farmers in India with a renewable source of nutrients to help improve their crop yields and lower their costs.”
While the process uses organic waste as a raw material, the final product is pathogen free and safe for farmers to apply to their fields and crops. “Our final product is particularly beneficial to farmers who cannot afford to apply non-renewable commercially produced fertilizer, and it will benefit the Indian agriculture sector by providing a fertilizer product that will increase crop yields at a low cost” said Rob Sampson, Managing Director of Ceres India.
By providing a beneficial reuse alternative for human waste management, the technology allows municipal governments to expand the construction of wastewater treatment plants, and support the more sustainable management of fresh water resources. This technology is currently used in seven organic fertilizer production facilities in Canada.
Ceres India is owned by Corpfinance International Limited (“CFI”), and a local Indian partner. Financing for the project was arranged by CFI, utilizing full project financing protocols, which CFI applies to Canadian infrastructure projects, to ensure on budget and on time delivery of the project.
CFI and Ceres India are committed to expanding throughout India using this technology as an affordable option to manage waste water treatment challenges, to help clean up India’s natural waterways, and provide affordable, natural, nutrient rich fertilizer to local farmers.
