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.
