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:

Suspended solids/phosphorus recovery technologies:

  • Produces a concentrated source of phosphorus from a renewable source
  • Include belt presses, centrifuges, dissolved air flotation systems and others
  • There is significant variation of chemical and energy use by site and by technology
  • There is significant variation of operational intensity by site and by technology
  • There is significant variation of cost by site and by technology
  MSD Environmental is a supplier of new, refurbished and customized nutrient recovery and dewatering equipment.  MSD has over 10 years of experience with chemical phosphorus recovery belt press systems on dairy farms in the Midwest.  Because of their long history of treating dairy manure, MSD should be view as an expert in chemical phosphorus recovery.  Belt press systems have functioned very well on dairy farms, removing 95+% of the phosphorus from the liquid stream. Potential users of chemical phosphorus systems should note that manure chemistry changes frequently due to temperature, diet and life cycle stage, so operators need to be trained to make proper adjustments. Also, to form a cohesive phosphorus cake product, coarse solids are not typically removed prior to the belt press.  The advantages of purchasing refurbished unit is lower capital cost.   Newtrient will continue to work with MSD Environmental to further refine the cost and performance information as more information comes in with new commercial dairy installations.
