Ecostrat has not been evaluated using Newtrient's 9-point scoring process because, although their process appears to be suited for use with dairy manure digesters, Newtrient is not aware of any current projects that they are doing with a dairy digester.
Newtrient will continue to work with Ecostrat to further refine the cost and performance information as more information comes in with commercial dairy projects.
