November 13, 2023. New York. New York. Bion Environmental Technologies, Inc. (OTC QB: BNET), a developer of advanced livestock waste treatment technology and premium sustainable beef, acknowledged the passing on Saturday of Dominic Bassani, the company’s former Chief Executive Officer, after an extended illness. The Bion team extends its condolences and best wishes to the Bassani family.
Mr. Bassani’s association with Bion began as a consultant in 2000, with a focus on strategic planning and special projects. In 2006, he assumed the role of CEO. As the driving force behind the development of Bion’s second and third generation technologies, his legacy will be pioneering solutions to one of the greatest environmental problems in the world today: the air and water quality impacts from livestock production. He was a co-inventor of Bion’s third generation technology platform – our Gen3Tech and patented Ammonia Recovery System – that represents the state-of-the-art in comprehensive waste treatment and nutrient recovery for livestock and other concentrated organic waste streams.
Mr. Bassani stepped down as Bion’s CEO in 2022, when Bion began the transition from R&D to commercialization of its technology. He remained as Chief Operating Officer, but due to an extended period of hospitalization and the years of battling his final illness, all his management duties and responsibilities were transferred to other members of the team he built.
Bill O’Neill, Bion’s CEO, said, “It was Dom’s vision of bringing both environmental AND economic sustainability to the livestock industry that attracted me to Bion and the opportunity for foundational change that it represents. He will be remembered for his drive and determination that have put Bion in a position to do great things, both for its shareholders, as well as the planet we live on.
To the Bassani family: you have our deepest condolences, and we look forward to completing his mission.”
