Thanks for visiting with us at the World Dairy Expo

WDE 2015

Thanks for coming to see at the World Dairy Expo!  We enjoyed learning from farmers from across the world and hope we have the opportunity to help you make your operation more sustainable and profitable in the years to come.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you are interested in learning more about our solutions and receiving a proposal for your site.

 

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

Digested Organics Announces Construction of Integrated Manure Management System in WI

ANN ARBOR, MI. July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Digested Organics LLC has begun construction on its first fully Integrated Manure Management System (IMMS™) at the Majestic Meadows Dairy in Sheboygan Falls, WI. The IMMS will process 20,000 gallons of manure per day, effectively harvesting energy through biogas generation, concentrating nutrients for more targeted crop use, and reclaiming clean water for farm use and surface water discharge.

Digested Organic’s IMMS is a fully integrated and scalable manure treatment system – combining a high efficiency/low residence time anaerobic digester with a highly automated ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis system that concentrates nutrients into 30% of the original manure volume while recovering about 70% of the original volume as clean water suitable for drinking water for the animals, washing and flushing on the farm, or direct discharge to local waterways (with the appropriate DNR permit). Unlike most other solutions available today, the IMMS does not use polymers and chemical flocculants to remove solids from manure; instead, it relies on a patented ultrafiltration system that can reliably remove >99% of the suspended solids and phosphorus. The concentrated nutrients can also be dried or pelletized for easy storage or transport out of the watershed.

“We have been actively working with dairy farmers, county officials, regulators and other Wisconsin stakeholders that have been leading the manure management debate across the State,” said Chris Maloney, Digested Organic’s Chief Operating Officer. “The dairy industry has been looking for commercially proven, operationally robust and cost competitive solutions to manage their manure for years,” Maloney said. “We believe we have an integrated solution that will deliver these key attributes and provide important operational flexibility that will enhance the farm’s overall operation in an environmentally sustainable way.”

“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,” said Dean Strauss, Managing Partner and co-owner of the Majestic Meadows Dairy. Digested Organic’s solution is the right fit for our farm, allowing us to concentrate key nutrients for our crops into substantially less volume at a competitive operating cost – that means getting manure trucks off the road and reduced hauling costs. We also 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”.

With over two-dozen projects proposed across Wisconsin, Vermont and Michigan, the project at Majestic Meadows is Digested Organic’s first fully integrated commercial facility.  The IMMS is expected to be operational by the end of September, just ahead of the World Dairy Expo in Madison. CG Solutions, based in Milwaukee, is serving as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor. The facility will be owned and operated by Majestic Meadows Dairy.
