CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y., Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BioHiTech Global, Inc. ("BioHiTech" or the "Company") (OTCQB: BHTG), a green technology company that develops and deploys innovative and disruptive waste management technologies, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of its first HEBioT renewable waste facility license from Ensorgafin S.P.A ("Entsorga") in exchange for a combination of approximately 1,036,000 shares of BioHiTech common stock and $838,000 in cash to be paid through March 31, 2018.
BioHiTech controls the exclusive U.S. development rights for Entsorga's patented HEBioT solid waste processing technology in 11 northeastern states and the District of Columbia. As part of the terms of those development rights, the Company is required to pay a licensing fee to Entsorga based on designed annual processing capacity. This first license, valued at $6.1 million, provides for a designed capacity of 165,000 tons per year which the Company estimates could generate approximately $12 million in annual revenue upon reaching full utilization. The Company expects to use the license for a planned project in New York State.
Frank E. Celli, CEO of BioHiTech, commented, "We are excited to take this significant step forward in our Company's corporate evolution. This transaction accomplishes a number of strategic goals of BioHiTech including paving the way for us to build our first HEBioT facility, significantly enhancing our balance sheet as we work to meet the qualifications for an uplisting to a national stock exchange, and strengthening our relationship with Entsorga as it now becomes a significant stakeholder in our company. Together, I am confident that we can create significant future value for our stockholders as we roll out this important renewable waste technology."
