Drylet – ManureMagic
About the Company:
Drylet was founded on the principle of helping nature. They are a bioremediation technology company whose proprietary biocatalysts optimize biological processes in any organic waste treatment or storage system. They serve many industries, including livestock and agricultural production, protein processing, food waste rendering, and municipal wastewater. Outcomes include solids reduction of more than 60% in wastewater treatment plants and animal production facilities, as well as dramatically improved resilience in the face of extreme weather events.
About the Solution:
Manuremagic provides an innovative, user-friendly, and eco-friendly solution to solids, foaming (according to a 2017 study by Iowa State University), odor, and other nuisance issues in pits and lagoons. Manure can be pumped more easily and at a cheaper cost due to increased flowability and consistency. Consequently, higher volumes of consistent manure are made available for field application, and afford regained storage capacity.
Manuremagic also reduces odor and hydrogen sulfide emissions up to 43% and 50% respectively, according to a Purdue University study. It helps keep neighbors happy throughout the year even when manure is being spread in the fields.
