Vulcan Drying Systems

Poultry Manure Drying - Agriculture - Poultry

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.

Properly processed manure, on the other hand, is a highly marketable fertilizer that creates added value to poultry farms.

The nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, and other rich nutrients contained in poultry manure make it an extremely effective fertilizer once treated. The organic matter improves soil structure, aeration, water infiltration, and soil moisture-holding volume.

Dry fertilizer also has many added benefits when compared with wet waste applications including, less potential for run off, an increase in the number of available application days, and an increase in available application sites.

Agriculture, horticulture, and landscaping companies are just a handful of companies in many different industries that can see positive revenue generation through the use of poultry manure derived fertilizer.
