Ductor 2024 Priorities First Commercial Project in Sight

Ductor Prioritizes Ohio Project for 2024, Targets Investment Approval in First Half of the Year

Ductor, a pioneer in transforming organic waste into renewable energy and high-quality organic fertilizers, announces its strategic focus on the Ohio project. The company aims to approve the investment for its first major facility in the United States in the first half of 2024. This initiative is part of Ductor’s ongoing commitment to revolutionize organic waste management, biogas and organic nitrogen fertilizer production. 


This facility, a significant first milestone in Ductor’s partnership with TotalEnergies, will produce  organic nitrogen fertilizer, soil amendments, and biogas. The liquid fertilizer is being marketed in both concentrate and CDFA-certified 5-0-0 form.   


Bernard C. Fenner, CEO of Ductor, said, “Our partnership with TotalEnergies marks a significant chapter in Ductor’s journey. Our Ohio project, being the first in a substantial pipeline of future biogas and sustainable organic fertilizer plants, is crucial in unlocking the potential of our full project line up. Our collaboration with TotalEnergies is both vital for advancing the construction of our first integrated fertilizer and biogas facility and for the subsequent projects in our pipeline. This partnership is a testament to our commitment to creating a more sustainable agricultural ecosystem and realizing our vision at a larger scale.” 


Ductor’s unique two-step biogas process produces both renewable biogas and high-nitrogen liquid fertilizers, supporting farmers in improving soil health and fertility. With the rise of low-carbon organic fertilizers, Ductor is at the forefront of a movement that recognizes the interconnectedness of soil health, plant growth, environmental stewardship, and circular economy principles. 


Caleb Adams, Head of Ductor Fertilizer Americas, added, “The market trends we’re observing in North America are incredibly supportive of our mission. The rise in organic farming and the increasing demand for eco-friendly fertilization solutions align perfectly with Ductor’s offerings. The growing organic acreage, from cash crops to corn, cereal, and other row crops, is a clear indicator of a broader commitment to sustainable agriculture and ecological balance, and it’s exciting to be at the forefront of this movement.” 


The Ohio project is set to play a pivotal role in Ductor’s strategy, aligning with the company’s mission to provide sustainable and efficient solutions for the agricultural industry. Ductor’s previous experience from its ground-breaking project in Jalisco, Mexico provided valuable insights into optimizing the integration of biofertilizers and biogas technologies.

The new facility will not only bolster Ductor’s capacity to meet the growing demand in the U.S. organic fertilizer market but also reinforce the company’s vision of enhancing agricultural biodiversity, enriching soils, and improving ecosystems.
