Abstract:

Farm Pilot Project Coordination, Inc. (FPPC Inc.), a nonprofit organization, has been actively engaged for the past four (4) years in finding, developing and testing innovative technology to improve the nutrient management capabilities on the farm. The concentrated waste stream at our animal feed operations and the current over-application of manure to the land continues to threaten our nation’s soil and water resources. Farm Pilot has utilized its grants to demonstrate different farm scale technologies at thirty (30) projects in sixteen (16) states.

This paper will overview the most effective nutrient capture methods as well as sharing significant lessons learned in applying waste treatment technology to the animal agriculture setting. Nutrient and solids capture data will be presented to help characterize performance of the unit processes.

Economic feasibility is currently pacing the widespread adoption and implementation of waste stream treatment. Significantly, FPPC is now linking waste treatment to finding value for the solids captured and defining the cost savings that can result from handling water and effluent in the operation. FPPC is encouraged that by developing a more completely integrated system, the cost of waste treatment will be offset by savings and revenue. Energy conversion and organic fertilizers are the preferred waste stream by-products since they promise the greatest revenue potential derived from this source of bio mass.
