Nutrient Recovery

Nutrient Recovery – Making Manure a Profit Center

Nutrient recovery is the process whereby N-P-K nutrients are extracted from agricultural waste and converted to environmentally safe material to be used for biogas, gasification and compost fertilizer. Not only do you obtain valuable fertilizer byproducts, the shipping costs of the remaining separated fiber are a fraction of the cost of hauling liquid manure from your farm.

Besides nutrient recovery, some waste management systems require separation of the liquid and solids for easier process and handling.

Skinner AgSolutions offers field-tested equipment systems for nutrient recovery and solids separation that will fit your farming operation.
