HOME MILINATOR TECHNOLOGY CYCLORGANIC PRODUCTS HISTORY CONTACT

On October 19, 2012, In the summer of 2012, International Fertilizer Development Center conducted field trials of CYCLORGANIC fertilizer, produced by Milinator technology. On Oct. 19th, 2012, Dr. Upendra Singh, Principal scientist of IFDC, gave the preliminary results of the trial to Ms. Bicky Milin, Vice President of Milinator Technologies Inc. The results were much better then expected. CYCLORGANIC can produce more grains of Sorghum than commercially available fertilizers, with the same amount of nutrients. An other advantage of CYCLORGANIC was that it had to be added only once, at the beginning of the trial, while the commercial fertilizer had to be added every week during the trial. The testing of the soil after the Sorghum trial is being conducted in hopes to find the ingredients within CYCLORGANIC responsible for the extraordinary performance of this Milinator-made fertilizer. The testing continues and the results would be published soon.

On Sept 17, 2010, Mr. Leon Hui and Ms. Grace Kim, from the China Foundation for Desertification Control, visited the Milinator bench scale prototype. Before they saw the Milinator Technology, the Chinese government was trying to stop the Gobi desert from growing. After they visited the Milinator prototype, they decided to make the whole Gobi desert green.  The Milinator technology has entered the Chinese Master Plan for de-desertification of the Gobi desert, and that would be the first Terraforming application of Milinator on Planet Earth.

On July 20, 2009, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs approved $160,600.00 in funding for a joint research program conducted by University of Guelph's Department of Environmental Biology and EcoSpace Engineering Ltd. The research project is conducted under leadership of Dr. Youbin Zheng, Adjunct Professor at the University of Guelph, Department of Environmental Biology.
In March, 2009, Dr. Mike Dixon, the Director of University of Guelph’s Controlled Environment Systems Research Facility and Ivan Milin, the President of EcoSpace, agreed to collaborate on a joint three stage research project for Recycling Organic Waste using Insect Larvae - the MILINATOR Technology.
In stage one, a bench scale MILINATOR prototype will be built at the University’s Arkell Research Station in Guelph, Ontario. Manure from egg layer chickens will be processed by MILINATOR Technology. Laboratory analyses will be performed on the incoming substrate, on the finished products, and at intermediary phases of the process.
The organic fertilizer produced by the process will be tested on different plants and compared under different conditions. The fly larvae and pupae will be fed to egg layer chickens and the production and quality of eggs will be compared to the eggs produced using commercially available protein food additives.

The scientific data generated from stage one will be used to both approve the use and sale of organic fertilizer, as well as the use of larvae and pupae as livestock feed. This scientific data will also be used for evaluating the positive environmental impact of MILINATOR Technology and thus paving the way for obtaining Carbon Credits.
