It’s not manure anymore™

Company Description:

Trident Processes, LLC is an integrated resource recovery company located in Washington State with proprietary technologies for processing livestock waste, wastewater and sludge. As an expert in integrated nutrient and bedding recovery applications in the agricultural sector, Trident provides its customers an award-winning technology that processes their waste streams into valuable components, creating cost savings and new revenue opportunities for the user. Trident offers fully integrated turn-key solutions, including consulting, process engineering, systems management, operation and maintenance. Other services include laboratory and analytical services, polymer supply, as well as remote monitoring and diagnostics.
 
At the 2016 EPA Nutrient Recycling Challenge Trident’s solution was selected as a Top 10 technology. In 2018, Trident Processes Inc. received the Canadian Business Excellence Award in recognition of their demonstrated achievement of their strategic plans and business goals.


Technology Description:

Trident’s proprietary bedding recovery system is specifically designed to recover and recycle the large coarse fibers from liquid livestock waste. The conditioning and coarse fiber separation is achieved with the Trident Rotary Screen. In the second step the Trident Screw Press is utilized to dewater the captured fiber. The result is clean and dry premium bedding material with 35% dry matter.

 

Recycling fiber as bedding is an excellent way to promote animal health and comfort, and it represents a significant cost savings for the farm operation. The system can cover all of a farm’s bedding needs, reducing manure management costs and eliminating the need to purchase bedding from external suppliers.

 

The affordable, fully automated system can be operated 24/7 and is scalable for dairy operations of all sizes (250 – 15,000+ cows). It is provided as a turn-key system including pumps, conveyor, stainless steel platform and PLC. The system can be combined with existing sand removal systems and is available for dairies with or without anaerobic digesters. The bedding system can also be integrated with Trident’s Nutrient Recovery System to maximize its benefits.

Technology Strengths,Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

Rotary screen technologies:

  • Produces fiber for bedding, soil amendment and compost
  • Used extensively on dairies across the country to reduce concerns associated with storage and application
  • Does not significantly reduce nutrients from the manure stream
  • Can utilize many types of technology like slope screen, screw press, rotary drum and others
  • Used before many other technologies to remove coarse solids
  • Minimal maintenance and operator time required
  • Proven technology for nitrogen recovery, phosphorous recovery, storage reduction, GHG reduction, and odor control but with limited impact in all cases

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Coarse solids separation technologies:

  • Produces fiber for bedding, soil amendment and compost
  • Used extensively on dairies across the country to reduce storage and application concerns
  • Does not significantly reduce nutrients from the manure stream
  • Can utilize many types of technology like slope screen, screw press, rotary drum and others
  • Used before many other technologies to remove coarse solids
  • Minimal maintenance and operator time required

 

Trident markets their combination of a rotary drum separator and screw press as a bedding recovery system based their experience that the selection of the longest fiber allows for the use of manure solids for bedding without heat treatment. This equipment is built to operate reliably on farm and does not require a great deal of attention. Use of the manure based bedding from this system will require more attention than some other bedding options.
