Nutrient Recovery Membrane Technology: Best Applications and Role in Conservation

Proceedings Home | W2W Home w2w17 logo

Purpose

Animal manure contains nutrients and organic matter that is valuable to crop producers if it can be efficiently applied to nearby fields, however this can be a significant source of environmental contamination if managed incorrectly. In most cases, concentrated animal production facilities are rarely close to sufficient cropland to fully utilize these resources and management becomes a disposal issue rather than a utilization opportunity.…

Purpose

Animal manure contains nutrients and organic matter that are valuable to crop production.  Applying manure to nearby fields can be a significant source of environmental contamination, however, if managed incorrectly. In many cases, concentrated animal production facilities are not close enough to sufficient cropland to fully utilize these resources and management of manure becomes more of a disposal issue rather than a utilization opportunity.…
