Control Composting Odors, Naturally: Municipal sludge is often composted in indoor facilities or composting sheds. These areas create significant odor control challenges. Ecosorb products, either evaporated or atomized in concentrate form with nozzles or humidifying fans, control industrial odors even in very large composting facilities.
Vulcan® 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...
The controlled composting of organic waste with the Toptex protection fabric leaves odour emissions at bay and increases the quality output significantly. Composting is the conversion of organic wastes into high quality humus. Through systematic controls these materials can be returned to the earth, completing the cycles of nature and improving the soil to which it is applied.
Composting organic matter provides a great value for produce growers and our planet. Working with decomposing matter can be challenging, however, with strong, unappealing odors released as material breaks down. DPI GLOBAL offers organic compost activator solutions that increase valuable nitrogen content while reducing odors.
Safe, natural MICROCAT microbial formulations from Bioscience, Inc., can help farms, vineyards and plantations more effectively utilize composting techniques, leading to increased yields with significantly reduced or eliminated need for chemical fertilization. Made of a unique combination of specialized, naturally occurring microbes and other ingredients, MICROCAT products accelerate, stabilize and deodorize the composting of animal waste, wastewater sludge, coffee pulp and more.
The University of Illinois Animal Sciences Department study has found that one 1,400 pound dairy cow produces 115 pounds of manure per day and approximately 21 tons per year. In fact, a dairy with 1000 animals is equivalent to the waste produced by a city of 164,500 people*. Handling all that waste is not only a health issue for animals but also draws the attention of many governmental agencies that want to limit any potential downstream exposure of groundwater contamination.
The world’s population consumes an enormous amount of mushrooms each day. To meet this demand, highly efficient and hygienic production methods are required to deliver quality mushrooms on-time. Because of their proven performance and reliability, TenCate materials have become the mushroom and composting industry standard for pulling nets.
For instance, the indoor composting process for mushroom substrate uses a lot of energy. High energy prices have pushed composting companies to look for ways to reduce...

Historically, animal manures have been handled as a solid and were either directly deposited to pastures or collected along with shelter bedding and applied to land as a crop nutrient. As the concentration of animals on farms increased, the need for more efficient methods of manure management developed.
To abide local regulations, and ensure efficient and effective composting, the temperatures of the windrows must be measured and logged constantly. With accurate temperature measurements, you can determine the optimum time to turn the windrows for quicker compost production.
Time consuming and error prone manual data collection is eliminated using a SureCross FlexPower Node equipped with three thermocouples to automatically monitor the temperature at three depths within a compost windrow. Temperature sensor...
