    Fertilizers boosting soil productivity for agriculture sector

    The principle fertilisers used to boost soil productivity are phosphate based. Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP) and Diammonium phosphate (DAP) are used for their ability to deliver Nitrogen and Phosphorus (both macronutrients) to soil as solid fertilisers. Phosphate rock is the raw material for production and is extracted from large deposits across Florida, the Southern Mediterranean into the Middle East (namely Morocco and Saudi Arabia) and on into Russia and China. To this rock, sulfuric acid is added producing phosphoric acid. This acid is then reacted with ammonia and elemental sulfur producing a sulfur enhanced fertiliser. During this process, the dust produced can potentially reach explosive levels.

  • Poultry Manure Drying

    VulcanĀ® Systems technology was developed to address the growing problems produced by one of the oldest and most natural fertilizers in the world...manure. For centuries, poultry manure has been handled as a solid, being directly deposited onto pastures, collected with poultry bedding, and applied as a nutrient for crops. However, as the number of poultry farms has grown, a need has developed for more efficient manure management. The process of transporting poultry manure to cropland, while still in raw form, has become expensive in comparison to transporting nitrogen or phosphorus as a dry fertilizer. Until recently, poultry manure had not been regulated strictly, despite negative environmental impacts, causing conflicts over whom is responsible for pollution caused by poultry manure and leading to newly introduced regulations. Manure is to be an expected by-product in the poultry industry, that when left untreated, provides no substantial benefit.
