About the Solution:
Air Emissions Treatment combines attention to the environment and competitiveness in a single solution.
Contaminating emissions can occur as solid, liquid, or gaseous can have harmful consequences on the quality of the environment and on human health. Adopting state-of-the-art solutions in order to control and handle contaminants is not only an obligation related to the increasingly stringent national and local regulations but also an opportunity, for companies, to combine attention for the environment with greater competitiveness.
AB has several solutions to take advantage of this opportunity, including a DeNOx Reactor, Regenerative thermal oxidizers, and products for the treatment of odor pollution and complex emissions.
Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
Anaerobic Digester Associated Technology:
NOTE: There are several technology types that are used as part of an integrated manure management system that includes an anaerobic digester and are not applicable to manure management in other cases. The impact of these technologies on the critical indicators are represented as those of an entire anaerobic digester system.
- Long usable life and can be run reliably
- Creates energy and generates environmental credits
- Requires proper preparation of the feedstock
- Requires other technologies for energy utilization
- Requires other technologies for digestate handling
- Proper feeding & system monitoring is required to avoid system downtime
- Proven technology for odor control, GHG reduction and pathogen reduction
AB Energy has recently been added to the Newtrient catalog. Newtrient will continue to work with AB Energy to further refine the cost and performance information on their solution. Newtrient will update this entry as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come online.
