Digested Organics Prevents Manure Lagoon Overflows

By December 15, 2018 No Comments

This fall, Hurricane Florence’s rains flooded a large area of North Carolina that included many hog farms, causing overflows of the manure lagoons. These overflows raised serious concerns around pollution and questions about the best way to deal with hog manure.

Situations like this could be prevented in the future with the use of Digested Organics’ waste management solutions. Our customized stainless steel ultrafiltration systems can turn manure into a filtrate with little to no suspended solids, bacteria, and phosphorus, while simultaneously creating a high value concentrated fertilizer for more targeted land application. For sites that want to remove water from lagoons and directly discharge it to nearby waterways, we use our Two-Step Reverse Osmosis System to polish the UF permeate, creating crystal clear water for discharge (or reuse) and a second concentrated fertilizer. Used together, we call our integrated filtration package the Nutrient Concentration & Water Reclamation System.

Digested Organics’ products are customized to the farmer’s needs and have proven to be better for the bottom line and better for the environment. Give us a call at 844-934-4378 to learn how we can help you improve lagoon and manure management today.
