Construction Underway at Majestic Meadows!

Construction continues at Majestic Meadows Dairy!  We look forward to hosting visitors the first week of October for the World Dairy Expo!  Please contact Chris Maloney at chris.maloney@digestedorganics.com if you’re interested in a tour.

Digested Organics partners with Gryphon Environmental to deliver cost-effective drying solutions

Digested Organics is pleased to announce a partnership with Gryphon Environmental to supply high-efficiency dryers for farmers looking to reuse manure solids as bedding or produce dry feeds.  By using the biogas generated by the BioEliminator™ manure treatment system, a Gryphon Dryer can create significant value for farmers looking to bed with dryer solids (good for reducing somatic cell counts) or produce their own dry feeds from wet materials like gluten or distillers grains.

Digested Organics selected the Gryphon Dryer because its performance is the best in the industry, with a 40% improvement in both operating costs and capital costs over competing technologies.

The Gryphon Dryer injects compressed, heated air into a vacuum that acts to simultaneously evaporate and physically remove water from wet materials.  The dryer operates with a closed-loop air system, meaning the air used during the process is dried and re-circulated to take advantage of existing heat and to reduce energy consumption.  The condensate water can be released to the farm’s lagoon or optionally purified for reuse.

For more information about how Digested Organics can integrate its cutting-edge digestion technology with a Gryphon Dryer, please call us today (844-9-DIGEST) or email at info@digestedorganics.com

Don Heilman joins the Digested Organics Team

We welcome Don Heilman to our team as a Development Consultant.  Don is based in Middleton, Wisconsin and will work to develop projects and partnerships across Wisconsin as we look expand our operations in 2015.  Don has many years of experience working throughout several of the sensitive watersheds in Wisconsin, and he brings a wealth of knowledge to our efforts to treat dairy manure and help farmers more effectively manage nutrients through onsite treatment.

Demonstration Unit Winterized and Running Well!

The demonstration unit at the Wagner Dairy has been fully winterized so we can keep it running for the next several months in Wisconsin’s sub-zero climate.  In addition to insulating the container housing the treatment tanks, we have insulated and heated all the lines and the BioMicronizer pump and nozzle.

The latest data from the demo unit has continued to show exceptional treatment efficiency, with very high rates of organic matter conversion to biogas and removal of total suspended solids and phosphorus.  For a complete analysis, please download the latest report.

BioEliminator™ Demonstration Unit Moved to Wagner Dairy Farm in Middleton, WI

The BioEliminator™ demonstration unit was moved at the end of August from Michigan State University, where it was treating digestate, to the Wagner Dairy Farm in Middleton, Wisconsin.  The unit is designed to treat between 150-200 gallons per day of liquid dairy manure. Since the BioEliminator™ arrives onsite pre-assembled and ready to plug and play, it was quickly commissioned and is currently processing the liquid discharge from the Wagner’s screw press separators.

The liquid manure is prepared for treatment using our BioMicronizer™ process and then passes through the BioEliminator™ system. Within 3 months, we anticipate the unit will produce biogas containing 80% methane as well as a greywater effluent containing very low levels of organics, nitrogen, and phosphorus.

Please come visit our demonstration facility during the World Dairy Expo (Sept. 30th to Oct. 4th) or by appointment.  Please contact COO Chris Maloney for more information or to schedule a visit at chris.maloney@digestedorganics.com.

 

New Vertical Hydroponics Towers Installed on BioEliminator™ Demo Unit

We recently installed a set of ZipGrow Towers on our demonstration BioEliminator™ unit.  We planted a variety of edible plants, like basil and mint, and setup a recirculating pump to drip water containing nutrients through the towers.  We will soon begin using the treated effluent from the BioEliminator™ as the liquid media.  This is a great way to make your BioEliminator™ look great and be uniquely functional–grow food for your facility using nutrients from your organic waste.
