Manure is turned to water in possible solution to farm waste problem

October 25, 2018 | By Keith Micallef |

A prototype plant which converts pig and cow manure into clean water could be key to solving the huge environmental problem of the disposal of some 300,000 tonnes of farmyard waste each year. Developed abroad, the plant was brought to Malta for testing. An on-site facility needed to treat manure generated on a farm could produce 60 per cent of the equivalent volume of waste into water. Moreover, part of the bi-product could be used as fertiliser and the rest as fuel for waste to energy plants. Note:  A similar U.S. based technology is profiled in the Newtrient Technology Catalog:

Report: Changing Manure Management Would Significantly Reduce Dairy Methane Emissions

October 17, 2018 | By Environmental Defense Fund & Dairy Cares |

New research published in the Journal of Dairy Science finds that changing the way manure is stored and handled is key to meeting California’s 40 percent dairy manure methane reduction goal and combating climate change.  With financial support from Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and cooperation from the Dairy Cares coalition, leading scientists worked together to produce the most thorough, detailed measurements of “whole-dairy” methane emissions in California to date.
