Livestock Water Recycling
Livestock producers looking to utilize more of their waste and meet ever tightening environmental regulations are looking for alternatives to manure lagoons. Livestock Water Recycling CEO Karen Schuett says their technology can help.
Schuett… “We are creating value from livestock waste for protein producers, like dairies, hog farms and feed lots as well as food processing plants. To try and go lagoon free in their process. And then just pull out any valuable nutrients from the waste and from the manure, and create clean potable water.”
Schuett said that water can then be utilized and the remaining dry manure can be sold, fed to a digester or used for fertilizer.
Schuett…”So when you look at a dairy manure lagoon, for instance, you'd be seeing something that has 95% water and 5% manure particles. When we first looked at that we were astonished that there was just nothing available technology wise to work on that. Uh, we came from a water treatment background in oil and gas. So looking at that, we were like, this is a water treatment issue. Just, we need to extract those particles out. For dairies, they've gotta move that, you know, twice a year usually. And it's a lot of movement of just water.”
