AgCertain Industries Inc. is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, AgCertain Boone, LLC, has been awarded $3,915,000 from the State of Iowa Water Infrastructure Fund program to meet current and future needs. This award is part of Governor Kim Reynolds’ $100 million investment in Iowa’s water infrastructure and water quality efforts, which are aimed at encouraging the reuse of water and wastewater and providing significant economic benefits to communities and the state.

Iowa has a long history of innovation to improve water quality and sustainability, and these projects build on that legacy,Governor Reynolds said. We rely on our land and water to provide for future generations in Iowa, which is why we are committed to protecting, preserving, and restoring Iowa’s water resources.

AgCertain’s processes are optimized for efficiency and sustainability. By eliminating unnecessary wastewater movement, the project aims to protect valuable water resources while also lowering the carbon intensity of AgCertain’s products.

This project is expected to reduce water usage in the City of Boone by nearly 85% and reduce water transportation costs by more than $1.2 million per year once completed.
