Manure Treatment Advantages with the ATD System


Overview

ATD Manure Treatment System was initially developed at the University of British Columbia. This patented  system is designed to produce an organic based, high nutrient fertilizer pellet, with options for liquid recycling. It eliminates lagoons, reduces or eliminates the land base used for disposal to the extent that surplus nutrients can now be exported.

The system removes threats to surface and ground water, reduces odours substantially, and dramatically reduces water consumption. It will operate 365 days a year, under computer control with minimal intervention and produces cash flow from fertilizer sales and greenhouse gas reduction credits.

In a comparison between the ATD Manure Treatment System, composting, and anaerobic digestion, the ATD System outperforms in all key areas of performance.

Top 10 Advantages

  1. Eliminates lagoons, liquid manure applications, most odours and could reduce buffer zones.
  2. Reduces cost of manure management for new installations
  3. Reduces water consumption by up to 70%
  4. Produces consistent analysis pellet for use or sale by capturing all of the nutrients
  5. Reduces greenhouse gases substantially, allowing sale of reduction credits
  6. Can be scaled up for larger operations on same land base with increased profits
  7. Can be configured for partial treatment, irrigation, bulk solids
  8. Operates effectively in all climates
  9. Requires less space than biological treatments
  10. Takes advantage of rising costs of fertilizer and increased values for greenhouse gases
