HPAB is about to change the way equine bedding is handled by implementing an advanced technology process that will become an integral part of modern horse farms and County or Municipal operations. The Facility will be located in locations with world-class equestrian prestige. The Facility will meet the requirements regarding waste-stream management facilities, including agricultural safety management for recycling to State rules.
The goal of HPAB is to create an environmentally friendly method to re-use a large portion of the waste material as bedding using energy-efficient and low or non-emitting equipment to avoid any local environmental concerns. HPAB plans to bag the final recycled product for resale back to its own equine facilities and potentially outside farms. The Result: efficient use of resources, cost savings, and a reduction of environmental hazards; such as inadequate dumping, nutrient leaching, and phosphorus overloading into our soil and water. HPAB Facilities creates long-term profit stream EBITDA returns for the Local Partner and reduces bedding and removal costs to the equestrian center operations.
In this way, you can start to see the value in creating a Hypoallergenic dust-free recycled bedding that is better than standard wood shavings in horse stalls today.
HPAB requires the backing of local authorities as well as a Local Partner ownership group that sees the impact of this crisis of waste shavings polluting their region. HPAB will provide a cost-effective solution to the massive surplus of waste stall residuals while creating a sustainable business model for the local equestrian market that has been validated by early adopters and research.

The Department of Agriculture estimates that about 75 percent of farms in the area dispose of this waste, known as “stable muck,” in unmanaged piles on remote parts of these farms, often in sinkholes or adjacent to streams. Runoff from stable muck contains high levels of nitrogen and bacteria and is contributing to water quality impairments and threatening local groundwater quality in the region.
There are better alternatives such as manure bun separation, recycling the shavings for stall reuse while using the water and manure and small fines as methane energy production in Anaerobic Digesters or processing through a Bio Reactor to create a high-quality organic matter soil amendment. This point to point closed-loop process can reduce methane off-gassing entirely and create multiple revenue streams back into the State, the racetracks, equestrian center operations, and the economic value chain.
The annual economic impact of the equine industry is significant. It is diverse, involving agriculture, business, sport, entertainment, and recreation. It continues growing every year. Nationally, there are approximately eight million horses in North America (AEF2018), creating over 3 million tons of waste bedding every month. The annual spend on bedding and bedding removal in North America has risen > $5.5 Billion per year.

Background. Higher-end show or racehorses create twelve (12) tons of stall residual waste per year, where residential horses create around nine tons. The waste stall residuals collected across North America would be in the range of 3,000,000 tons per month. There are over 20 locations in the US that have more than 20,000 horses within county lines.
This amount of stall residuals collected creates high unmanageable waste piles that cannot be disposed of in a landfill and depletes soil nitrates when spread on fields. It has also shown to produce up to 50 lbs. of methane off-gassing per horse per year.
“An HPAB plant (treating waste from 2,500 horses) would create 10,000 GJ of energy & 62 tons of methane per year.”
North America. The equine industry is an essential part of national, state, and local economies. It is diverse, involving agriculture, business, sport, entertainment, and recreation. It continues growing every year. Nationally, there are approximately 8 million horses in North America (AEF), creating over 3 million tons of waste bedding every month. The annual spend on bedding and bedding removal in North America has risen > $5.5 Billion. (FAOSTAT) (USEF & American Horse Council)
There are an estimated 130 major horse racetracks and 2000 large equestrian centers across Canada and the US. Each horse, when stalled inside, creating approximate one (1) ton of stall residuals per month costing North American horse owners >$5.5 Billion per year on bedding and manure hauling alone, not to mention the environmental impact of inadequate disposal is causing worldwide.
Nationally, there are approximately eight (8) million horses in North America (AEF2018), creating a calculated three (3) million tons of waste bedding EVERY MONTH. With the diminishing ability to effectively control stall residuals due to tightening regulations on how waste is spread or disposed of, we are as close to a manure crisis not seen since the Great Manure Crisis of 1894 in London and New York where only the introduction of the mass-produced motorcar adverted that crisis.
Globally. The annual economic impact of the equine industry is significant – some $300 Billion, involving 1.6 million full-time jobs. Direct GDP to North America is over $50 Billion with direct employment of over 1 million jobs. Participants/Spectators in North America are est. to have spent $27 Billion on events, travel dining & lodging.

Current disposal methods include spreading on pastures and crops or composting into the soil for farm and garden, however, tipping fee costs are rising, and in many jurisdictions' outdoor storage and landﬁll disposal is no longer permitted. Disposal companies are running out of disposal options! In most jurisdictions, burning or burying manure in landfills, or stockpiling on farmland, is a thing of the past. Waste stall residuals are also not well received by the agricultural community as it does not supply a lot of nutrient content due to the nitrogen capturing nature of rotting wood-based manure.
Recent agricultural rule changes reduce outdoor manure storage to a maximum length of two weeks and so waiting months for the spring manure-spreading season is no longer an acceptable solution. It is becoming evident that there are fewer disposal solutions available, and disposal costs are rising. North American and European horse owners must go farther aﬁeld to ﬁnd disposal solutions. Waste stall residuals left unattended will cause methane oﬀ gassing, leaching and phosphorous hot spots leading to diseases, ﬂies, and environmental hazards.
The HPAP © process is to create a better healthier bedding. Recycling and healthier bedding is endorsed by Dorothee Bienzle, DVM, PhD, Dipl ACVP Professor of Veterinary Pathology at the University of Guelph who states “I fully support HiPoint Agro Bedding’s efforts in research toward creating improved bedding for horses, and look forward to scientifically assessing the utility of such bedding for horses with asthma.” March 2019
Without a careful process of heat & time-based drying, recycling and composting; waste horse stall residuals have become each Counties disposal crisis, with very few options left. Through repurposing waste shavings into recycled horse bedding, communities can eliminate the troubling environmental concerns of inadequate dumping, nutrient leaching, and phosphorus overloading into our soil and water. The solution is to take a vast undesirable waste stream and create a new sustainable agricultural business-standard. We can change the way equine bedding is handled by implementing an advanced technology process that will become an integral part of modern county or municipal standards and horse farm operations — the Result. Efficient use of resources cost savings and reducing environmental hazards with a product that has significant health and safety benefits over the original.
