Proper management of livestock waste can generate benefits and contribute to environmental sustainability.

Benefits of liquid/solid separation

Proper slurry management is one of the main challenges of the future of the pig sector. Faced with growing pig numbers and increasingly more demanding administrative requirements in environmental terms, livestock waste limits the growth potential of farms, especially in areas with a high concentration of pig production or a scarcity of arable land. If these farms have efficient solid separation systems, then this is the first step towards treating livestock waste and making financial gains from it.

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.

On-site separation of the liquid and solid phase of slurry means the same amount of slurry can be managed on up to 20% less land (if the limiting factor of the application is nitrogen), or up to 50% less land (if the limiting factor is phosphorus) for the liquid phase, and there is money to be made from the solid phase. At the same time, this avoids problems with foul odours and the sedimentation and clogging of cesspools during times of year when it cannot be applied to the fields.

TECNAPUR is a comprehensive and highly efficient system for the management of waste slurry at a very low operating cost.

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 adjustable double press system means dryness levels of 20% to 30% can be obtained
  • High fertiliser value.
  • Easily compostable.
  • Low transport cost.
  • High economic value.

If you run a farming operation, take the challenge and manage

it with a view to the future.

Tecnapur is the solution.
