    Technology Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

    Chemical flocculation technologies remove the non-dissolved particles from the waste stream typically resulting in irrigation quality “tea water”:

    • Produces a clay like cake which is high in phosphorus and with significant amounts of organic nitrogen.
    • Supported technologies include belt presses, centrifuges, dissolved air flotation systems and others; all requiring flocculants to achieve high rates of solids removal
    • There is significant variation of chemical and energy use depending on site and by technology
    • There is significant variation of operational intensity depending on site and by technology
    • There is significant variation of cost depending on site and by technology
    • Proven technology for nitrogen recovery, phosphorous recovery, storage reduction, GHG reduction, and odor control

    Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

    Evaporation and Drying Technologies:

    • Uses heat to produce either manure with less water or dried manure solids
    • Systems that reduce water in manure use a series of evaporators to sequentially evaporate water from liquid slurries—energy is supplied either by purchased fuel and/or waste heat from other processes
    • Systems that dry separated solids use either a belt or drum to evaporate water from separated solids—energy is supplied either by purchased fuel, electricity and/or waste heat from other processes
    • Chemicals are released with the water (i.e. ammonia, hydrogen sulfide), and this often requires additional treatment such as condensation of the water and/or scrubbing of the chemicals
    • The requirement for purchased energy and costs are a significant concern leading to a tradeoff between input costs and gains in liquid concentration and transportation/market of by-products
