Technology Strengths,Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

Nitrification/Denitrification Technologies:

  • No saleable product produced in most systems
  • Vermiculture and some other technologies do produce salable by-products (i.e. worms and worm castings)
  • Traditional and modified forms exist with years of experience treating municipal wastewater
  • Uses large, multiple reaction chambers seeded with both anaerobic and aerobic bacteria
  • Traditional concerns are capital cost, requiring large dedicated tanks and large power consumption for aeration.
  • Proven technology for phosphorous recovery, storage reduction, GHG reduction, odor control and pathogen reduction
  • This technology loses nitrogen as non-reactive nitrogen gas

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Nitrification/Denitrification Technologies:

  • No saleable product produced, nitrogen lost to the atmosphere 
  • Nitrogen removed from manure and released to environment as non-reactive nitrogen gas
  • Traditional and modified forms exist with years of experience treating municipal wastewater
  • Uses large, multiple reaction chambers seeded with both anaerobic and aerobic bacteria 
  • Traditional concerns are capital cost, requiring large dedicated tanks and large power consumption for aeration 

 

Terra Blue has not been evaluated using Newtrient's 9-point scoring process because they have never tested their technology with dairy manure and are not currently marketing to the dairy industry. Newtrient has collected this information and photographs from public sources and the vendor has been unresponsive to Newtrient's multiple attempts to supplement or validate this information.
