Resource Recovery from animal Waste
The chart below show the extensive research carried out over a
period of several years on the extraction of cellular proteins
from the organic component of pig wastes, the recovery of biogas
energy, and the recycle of the separated water for flushing the
wastes out of the pig barns.
Some of the unique features of these projects were the unique designs of the facilities used. The biogas digester was heated by capturing the solar heat with solar panels. The barns were specially designed to accommodate the flushing of the wastes in channels underneath slotted floors. The photosynthesis of the algae were carried out in specially designed high rate algae ponds. The harvesting and dehydration of the algae before feeding to chickens were with special designed machinery fabricated to our specifications.
high rate algae ponds, the digester, and other facilities are shown
in the aerial photo below. The results of
these projects were reported in technical reports, in a book, and
also in a documentary video.
Our MISSION is to help livestock producers assess the costs of practical potential systems of handling the wastes from their animal units with maximum recycle and minimum public nuisance.
