BioNitrogen’s CEO will give keynote at conference

Mar. 6, 2012, Miami, FL - BioNitrogen Corp., a developer of revolutionary patent-pending technology for converting renewable and abundant biomass waste into high-nitrogen urea and urea fertilizer, has announced that the Company's top executive will participate as a keynote speaker at the Biomass Transformation Conference near Paris, France.

The conference will be hosted by the Universite Technologique de Compiegne and Pole de Competitivite Mondiale Agro-Ressources; the conference will be chaired by Dr. Daniel Thomas.

The conference begins March 12th, 2012 14h 00 at the Research Center (Council Chamber), University of Technology of Compiegne.

Pole de Competitivite Mondiale Agro-Ressources' mission is to be the benchmark for European industrial valuations of agricultural resources by 2015. The competitiveness cluster "Industries and Agro-Resources or IAR" is intended to bring together stakeholders in research, teaching and industry Champagne-Ardenne and Picardy around a common axis: the valuations of non-food plants.

The IAR Cluster has identified four strategic areas of action grouped under the bio-refinery concept. These strategic issues are at the heart of current and future development: sustainable increase in commodity prices and non-renewable energy, international competitiveness, sustainable technology development, environmental protection, health and consumer safety.

The purpose and strategy of the Industries and Agro-resources Conference is to bring together the skills and technologies of extraction, processing and formulation of biomass components. The conference will discuss emerging technologies introducing the many steps from the laboratory to real sustainable industrial development as part of innovation devoted to bioenergy, agrimaterials, biomolecules, and other plant ingredients.

Professor Daniel Thomas will address the conference at 14h 15 with a presentation on the overall activities of "Industries and Agro-resources" and the group's goal to finance Research and Development Projects for up to 1 billion euros over the next five years.

The keynote address "Bionitrogen Corp.: Converting biomass to urea" by Dr. Terry R. Collins President - CEO will begin at 15h 30.

The seminar by Dr. Collins will be followed by:

- Dr. Jacky Van de Putte, Director IAR

- Jean-Charles Delebecque, Special Adviser to the Regional Agency Agribusiness Innovation, Picardy
