JR Huyge Associates, LLC
we consider the health risks, environmental impact and the cost
of clean up that result from the use and overuse of chemicals, it
is easy to see the value in developing programs to manage wastes
and produce products to reduce the need for chemicals in agriculture,
horticulture, lawn care and landscaping products.
Huyge Associates, LLC (JRH) is focused on developing and implementing
plans for the management of volatile organic residues, soil detoxification
and decontamination and sustainable agriculture, horticulture and
Huyge Associates, LLC is a Central Contractor Registered (CCR) company.
MBST goal is to provide a sustainable, environmentally safe, economically
viable alternative to chemical based fertilizers, pesticides, and
herbicides by producing and marketing biologically superior products,
biostimulants and management programs.
JR Huyge Associates, LLC objective is to expand the marketing and
sales efforts for MBST ® products and services and to develop
a Franchising and Licensing program for those products and services.
To achieve these goals JR Huyge Associates, LLC has constructed
and currently operates a model, MBST® Facility. Lakeshore Microboost,
Inc. is located in Saugatuck Township, MI. Lakeshore Microboost
is situated in an area zoned A-1. At the facility the cities and
residents of Saugatuck, Douglas and Saugatuck Township deliver loose
yard and wood wastes. No bagged materials, construction debris,
treated or painted materials are accepted. The manure needed is
procured from local farmers. Local schools are considering separating
food wastes for disposal at the site.
Microboost, Inc., (“LMI”) produces a line of chemical
free products, designed for agriculture, aquiculture, horticulture,
hydroponics and other organic and green industries. In addition
the biostimulants and biochar produced at the site are key ingredients
in bioremediation projects. Lakeshore Microboost is the only regional
producer of biochar.
LMI site is the quintessential “green” facility. Yard
and wood waste is delivered to the site by local governments through
their yard waste management and grounds maintenance programs, manure
is procured from local farmers (reducing the amount being field
applied) and wood chips from local tree services are directed to
one of two processes at the facility;
Aerobic, static pile composting producing compost for biostimulant
production and landscape/nursery soils and,
Anaerobic digestion is used to process mixed food waste. Methane
produced in the anaerobic digester is used as the starter fuel for
the pyrolysis process. The remaining biomass is pyrolized.
Pyrolysis for production of synfuel and biochar.
Microboost, Inc. will be a carbon negative fuel positive facility.
these processes, three primary products (composts, biostimulants
and biochar) are produced that can be further mixed and formulated
to develop specialty MBST products and products for private labeling.
aerobic, anaerobic and pyrolysis technologies, organic materials
are converted into biochar, biostimulants and soil mixes. Through
the tailored application of these technologies we are able to design
a carbon neutral, energy positive processing facility.
and the biochar produced at the facility are mixed with the compost
to produce specialized potting and bedding soils for nurseries and
top dressing for turf management. Biostimulants and biochar are
also processed into a slurry to be used in bioremediation for a
wide variety of naturally occurring and man made toxins and contaminants.
solutions create products and situations that are chemical
free, good for the environment and safe for use around children
Research in microbiology has opened new frontiers in the field of
medicine. Our ability to cure and prevent illness and disease has
taken great strides forward as a result of microbiological manipulation.
What many don’t realize is that microbiology is also identifying
new technologies in energy production, nutrient delivery, waste
treatment and reduction of green house gas emissions. These discovery’s
offer economical alternatives to chemical based agriculture, horticulture,
silva culture, landscaping and turf management programs, historical
waste management practices and GHG sequestration.
of biostimulants, biochar (agri-char) and other chemical free soil
additives enables gardeners, landscapers and the farming community
to reduce and perhaps ultimately eliminate the use of chemicals
in these fields.
the past several years Lakeshore Microboost, Inc.(LMI) has been
developing products, processes and services using the latest science
in chemical free, sustainable soil management and the treatment
of contaminated soils.
response to this need JR Huyge Associates, LLC has developed MICROBOOST®
(MBST) products and services. MBST® is the registered trademark
for a line of products and services designed for use in agriculture,
aquiculture, bioremediation, horticulture, hydroponics and other
science behind MBST® is based on the theory of “Effective
Microorganisms” as developed by Dr. Teruo Higa, at the University
of the Ryukyus, Okinawa, Japan (Higa, 1991; Higa and Wididana, 1991a).
EM consists of mixed cultures of beneficial an naturally-occurring
microorganisms that can be applied as inoculates to increase microbial
diversity. Research has shown that the inoculation of EM cultures
to the soil/plant ecosystem can improve soil quality, soil health,
and the growth, yield, and quality of crops. Like EM - MBST Extract
contains numerous species of microorganisms including predominant
populations of lactic acid bacteria and yeasts, smaller numbers
of photo synthetic bacteria and other types of organisms. All of
these are mutually compatible with one another and can coexist in
MBST® products and services are based on the results of research
conducted world wide in the fields of soil and plant microbiology.
Through our application of the data collected from this research
we have developed products that will destroy and/or sequester many
contaminants, toxins and green house gases, improve the physical
and biological condition of soils and other growth media, increasing
disease resistance, improving nutrient uptake and use.
