Benefits include:
  • Cost-Effective - Reduces fertilizer costs: The introduction of oxygen also helps to reduce the loss of nitrogen from the manure which makes the manure a more valuable asset, reducing the need for chemical fertilizer
  • Increases Nitrogen Values from as much as 2.7% to 4% when aerated (in dry matter)
  • Increases Ammonia Nitrogen Values as much as 1.4% to 2.4% when aerated (in dry matter)
  • Eliminates the release of dangerous gases such as methane and hydrogen sulphide
  • No need for a tractor agitator and the dangers that accompany it
  • Complete consistency – in the distribution of manure nutrients
  • System can be retro-fitted to any tank
  • Manure is in an ideal state to be used with low emission manure spreading equipment i.e. dribble bar, shallow injection spreader etc.

Technology Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

Aeration:

  • Primarily applicable for flush system followed by primary solids separation and within a region that has concerns regarding local odor emissions from long-term storage lagoons.
  • Capital costs for the mechanical surface aerators and their platforms/electrical connections are moderate.
  • Operating costs, even with limited aeration can be high due to high utility costs for continuous operation of energy intensive aerators.
  • Well-researched, understood and engineered system with multiple vendor platforms available across industries, including manure treatment.
  • Several types of aerators are available in the market that are suited for dairy operations.
  • Specification requirements of aeration equipment and its installation depend on farm size, manure characteristics, and odor mitigation goals of that dairy farm.
