Correct slurry management can generate profits and contribute to environmental sustainability.

Benefits of slurry treatment

Proper slurry management is one of the main challenges of the future of the pig farming sector. In view of the growing census and administrative permits that are more and more demanding in environmental terms, slurry limits the options of growth for farms, particularly in areas where pig production is highly concentrated or where there is a scarcity of arable land. Having effective slurry treatment brings economic value and contributes to environmental sustainability.

How can slurry management costs be reduced?

Slurry is an excellent organic fertiliser that is applied directly to the fields. This management model is highly sustainable, but it does need a few hectares of land that are increasingly difficult to find, especially in areas with high concentrations of livestock, which entails an increase in transport costs.

The ‘on site’ separation of the slurry liquid and solid phase makes it possible to manage the same quantity of slurry with up 75% less soil (if nitrogen is the limiting factor of the application) and up to 95% less soil (if phosphorus is the limiting factor) for the liquid phase, and obtain revenues from the solid phase. On the other hand, problems related to odours, sedimentation and clogging of lagoons are eliminated during periods when the slurry cannot be applied to the fields.

TECNAPUR is a highly efficient integral slurry management system with a very low operating cost.

* Benefits Separator

Liquid fraction

  • Once the liquid has been separated, it does not smell.
  • The liquid can be used for irrigation and fertiliser irrigation, even by spraying or dripping, after mixing with water.
  • Reduced cesspool volumes.
  • Avoids the formation of scale and sediments in cesspools, improving the homogeneity and ease of pumping, transportation and application.
  • It can be treated later, by means of physical-chemical or biological systems.
  • If local legislation requires a minimum area of crops per animal on the farm, it is possible to increase the number of animals.

Solid fraction

  • The double pressing system makes it possible to obtain drynesses rates of 20% to 30%.
  • Most of the nutrients are concentrated, generating high fertiliser value.
  • Easily compostable.
  • Low transport cost.
  • High economic value.

* Benefits Physical-chemical Reactor

Liquid fraction

  • Fertigation without emissions.
  • Facilitates biological purification.
  • Facilitates filtration through membranes.

Solid fraction

  • Easily compostable after a solar drying.
  • Concentrates a big part of the nutrients generating a high fertilization value.
  • High economical value.
  • Low transport cost.
