Unfortunately, one of the nutrients found in slurry poses an enormous threat to various ecosystems. Due to the high content of ammonia in manure, more nitrates are oxidized during fertilization than can be absorbed by the plants. The remaining water-soluble nitrates oxidate into the air and seep into the ground water, where they are not broken down. Therefore, it became in the last few years a very sensitive subject to restrictive laws on its application (EU and regional).
Our plant tries to address these problems by reducing ammonia in the treated slurry by at least 50%. The slurry obtained in this way enables farmers to use it more efficiently as a natural fertilizer and in compliance with legislation.
To meet the needs of our customers, we have developed a mobile system that is easy to install and requires no special training. In addition, the system is completely chemical-free and pumps the slurry directly from the tanks.
The recovered ammonia can be collected in a separate tank and reused. The complete process takes place in a closed circuit, which avoids losses of pollutants into the environment and limits odours. The plant is also suitable for the pre-treatment of slurry in biogas plants, as high ammonia concentrations also impair the process there.
We are currently conducting intensive research into further solutions in slurry treatment and livestock fertilization. We plan to extend our process to cattle and poultry manure in the near future. In addition, we have launched initial pilot tests that integrate other pollutants such as phosphorus into our solution.
The plant was successfully tested in slurry treatment, in particular for pig manure, and launched on the market in northern Italy.
It meets all EU standards and has been designed to be easy to use without special training.
In addition, it is fully mobile and can be transported back and forth between different slurry ponds or biogas plants.
