“Area farm to try manure technology”–Ultrafiltration Trials set to Begin on Swine Manure

After working with dairy manure for the last several years, Digested Organics will launch its first pilot with swine manure in collaboration with Mercer County, Ohio next week.  Ag Solutions Coordinator Theresa Dirksen helped coordinate plans for the pilot, which will primarily investigate how the ultrafilration (UF) technology we employ can remove phosphorus from swine manure. As shown in the graph below, UF typically removes 97+% of phosphorus from dairy manure and we expect similar performance with swine manure. Normally about 90 gallons of liquid (called UF permeate) with less than 0.2 lbs/1000 gal phosphorus is created for every 100 gallons of manure filtered.

Our proposal to Mercer County stated: “Performance information collected during this demonstration will allow us to size and price commercial-scale equipment, as well as determine operating costs, to give farmers and regulatory agencies in Mercer County a sense of how much this technology costs to implement on various size farms.”

“Cleaning up manure”–Digested Organics featured in Wisconsin State Farmer

A reporter with the Wisconsin State Farmer recently covered the PDPW Tour of our Integrated Manure Management System at Majestic Crossing Dairy in Sheboygan Falls, WI.

Some highlights from the article include:

“We had been looking at manure treatment systems for years, but we just couldn’t get comfortable with either the technology or the costs involved,” Strauss said. “This seemed like the right fit for our farm. We like the fact that it’s highly automated, has a small footprint and is environmentally sustainable  — something that is important to us and to our community”. Strauss said by removing the water they are able to save a lot of money and wear and tear on roads by not hauling water with the nutrients to their fields.

Come joins us at the World Dairy Expo and Majestic Crossing Dairy!

2015_homepage_logoPlease come and join Digested Organics at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, WI on September 29 – October 3.  We will be presenting our Integrated Manure Management System™ (IMMS) and how it can help dairy farmers treat their manure – concentrating nutrients into 40% of the volume while reclaiming 60% of the water for farm re-use, drinking water for the animals, or discharge.

Specifically, we will be discussing our Nutrient Capture and Water Reclamation (NCWR) system, which is an add-on technology for existing digesters or our BioEliminator system.  Our system concentrates nearly 100% of the phosphorous in manure into just 10-15% of the existing volume. We will also be highlighting our BioEliminator anaerobic digestion units which cost-effectively produce methane for on-farm electrical generation.

While you’re in the area for EXPO, please come see the IMMS in action at Majestic Crossing Dairy in Sheboygan Falls, WI.  This system is designed to process 20,000 GPD of manure and produce about 12,000 GPD of clean water.

Our complimentary shuttle leaves at 9:00 AM each day of the Expo from the Sheraton Madison Hotel and arrives at the farm for a 11:15 AM tour.

You can also meet us directly at the farm at N5854 Meadowlark Road, Sheboygan Falls, WI 53085.

Please contact Chris Maloney to reserve a seat on the shuttle or for more information at 847-431-6826 or chris.maloney@digestedorganics.com
