Technology Description:

ECOCHIMICA's stripping tower is used to reduce the volatile compound concentration (ammonia for example) in a fluid (waste water and process water). In the ecochimica stripping tower the fluid to be treated is pushed at the top of the tower and sprinkled downwards by spray-nozzle through special filling packs, which are inserted in the tower to increase air/fluid contact area and where a counter-current air flow is conveyed by proper ventilator. In this phase the compound is transferred from the fluid to the air. Exhaust air from the stripping tower is conveyed to a chemical scrubber to reduce pollutant concentration to be released into the atmosphere within environmental law limits. The correct plant dimension is closely related to the fluid flow rate and to the in/out compound concentration.

Technology Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

Ammonia-N can be harvested from manure and digestate using proven chemical/thermal processes:

  • Produces a concentrated source of nitrogen from a renewable source
  • Requires pre-treatment to remove coarse and fine solids
  • Pairs well with anaerobic digesters because digesters convert organic N into ammonium
  • Chemical storage required for process chemicals and final product
  •  Proven technology for nitrogen recovery, odor control, and pathogen reduction

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Ammonia-N can be harvested from manure using proven chemical/thermal processes.

  • Produces a concentrated source of nitrogen from a renewable source
  • Requires pre-treatment to remove coarse and fine solids
  • Pairs well with anaerobic digesters because digesters make more ammonia available
  • Chemical storage required for process chemicals and final product
