    Storage of cattle slurry leads to emissions of methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), ammonia (NH3), and carbon dioxide (CO2). On dairy farms, winter is the most critical period in terms of slurry storage due to cattle housing and slurry field application prohibition. Slurry treatment by separation results in reduced slurry dry matter content and has considerable potential to reduce gaseous ...

  • Pilot scale facility to determine gaseous emissions from livestock slurry during storage

    Livestock production is a growing source of air pollution, locally and to the wider environment. Improved livestock manure management has the potential to reduce environmental impacts, but there is a need for methodologies to precisely quantify emissions. This paper describes and evaluates a novel storage facility for livestock slurry consisting of eight 6.5-m3 cylindrical units. The stores may ...

  • Hog lagoon treatment in Korea

    The hog farm lagoon system located in South Korea was completed crusted over prior to innoculation with AquaClean. The covering was approximately one inch thick. AquaClean was applied to the system with standard usage rate.
