This milestone represents activation of the first major treatment step, with the remaining portions of the treatment system to be operational during the second quarter of this year. Initiating the Bioreactor (while the remaining portions of the project are still undergoing construction) allows time to build biological mass in the nutrient treatment vessel, shortening the time necessary to reach operational efficiency once the entire project is constructed and operating.
Bion anticipates construction completion during the Spring of 2011 followed by an "operational shakedown" period.
