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.
Abattoir & Slaughterhouse waste is a potential incubator of bacterial, viral, prion and parasitic pathogens, capable of infecting both animals and humans. A quick, cost effective and safe disposal method is essential in order to reduce the risk of disease following animal slaughter.
Rendering is a process that converts waste animal tissue into stable, value-added materials. Edible rendering processes are basically meat processing operations and produce lard or edible tallow for use in food products. Edible rendering is generally carried out in a continuous process at low temperature (less than the boiling point of water). The process usually consists of finely chopping the edible fat materials (generally fat trimmings from meat cuts), heating them with or without added steam, and then...
Animal farming is important because it provides food we eat and good jobs for more than half of the world. Animal waste is a natural byproduct of swine, poultry, and dairy farming operations and feedlot operations. While this waste is natural, it contains for example nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium that can pose health and environmental risks if not managed properly. Drylet’s ManureMagic® solves solids accumulation, crust formation, and odor issues in farms which results in healthier livestock,...
Safe, natural MICROCAT microbial formulations from Bioscience, Inc., are specially formulated to maintain the health and stability of fish and shrimp aquaculture facilities. Made of a unique combination of specialized, naturally occurring microbes and other ingredients, MICROCAT products augment the existing beneficial microorganisms in shrimp and fish farming pools.
The agricultural and zootechnical farms have zootechnical waste, agricultural by-products or dedicated crops coming from their own companies and productions. In particular they are animal sewage, animal waste, agricultural waste, fruit and vegetables and silage. These substrates can turn into a useful resource for the production of energy and fertilizers to be reused in their crops.
This eco-focused industry converts waste oils into new products like biofuels and animal feed, and iSorb is well-aligned with the green mission. Keep it on hand for maintenance and odor suppression during collection, conversion, and distribution.
Vulcan® Systems Technology was developed to address the growing problems produced by the oldest and most natural fertilizer in the world...manure.
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.
QM Environmental Services offers a range of products that can help to improve the processing and composting of organic waste forms or to solve odour problems associated with the transport, storage and processing of waste in general
Humic acidscan be successfully used as an additive in animal feed. Various research trials conducted worldwide have all showed positive results concerning the use of humic acids as an organic feed ingredient. Increases in liveweight of animals, improved growth rates, increased feed intakes and food conversion ratios and a stronger resistance against diseases are the common results of these trials. By improving immune function of animals, especially of young animals, humic acids also reduce the incidence of...
Vac‐Tron Equipment can be used for various clean‐ups involving animal waste and bedding. Large animal environments are cleaned‐up in zoos; animal waste drainage pits, pumping contaminated water out of holding tanks and transferring into disposal tanks, draining and cleaning animal housing ponds, horse stalls for daily maintenance to suck-up urine and solid waste; complete cleaning of bedding area of straw or wood shavings; removes urine that is not good for the horses to smell (like acid or...
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.
New legislations and market laws demand that food-processing industries review their production techniques and face up to the following obligations: To reduce the impact on the environment. To obtain a « green » image, even to produce « bio » products. To reduce the NPK bills. To increase output and production.
The FATBOXX and FATBOXX max are perfectly new waste bins for disposing of cooking fats, oils, food wastes and liquid slops and slaughterhouse wastes and animal by-products. The special construction of the body and lid offer many benefits for end consumers and waste management companies.

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...
Successful pig and poultry farming demands that measures are taken to control the introduction and spread of infectious agents. Chlorine Dioxide has been used very successfully in farming and slaughterhouses as a processing aid that is added to maintain water of good microbial quality. CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide is used for sanitising hard surfaces and processing equipment to assist in the prevention of the propagation and transmission of disease.
