ATD Waste Systems Inc. has completed trials of a new membrane bringing nanotechnology into the market place. 

This MITACS sponsored R&D project headed by Professor Takeshi Matsuura, Director of the Industrial Membrane Research Institute at the University of Ottawa and supported by Chaoyang Feng Ph.D. and K.C. Khulbe Ph.D. has created a new membrane that improved on earlier results at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and moved from tubular to a flat sheet format.  This is the final step before moving on to build and install a small scale demo at the Prairie Swine Center near Saskatoon and validates the corporate approach to extract all dissolved nutrients in the liquids from the hog barn in a way that they can supplement the solids going into a balanced fertilizer pellet and produce high quality recycled drinking water for the animals.  The combination of recycled wash water and manure liquids holds promise of reducing water consumption on hog farms by up to 80%

Closing the Loop

ATD Waste Systems Inc. (ATD) has just received US Patent #8,282,827, the basis for their project to eliminate the need for nearby acreage for hog manure disposal and allow expansion on existing farms by recycling the liquids as drinking water and creating a dry fertilizer pellet for sale off-site. This system should allow the industry to move forward to obtain economies of scale without environmental impact.
Becoming larger can cut down on the costs that are controllable i.e. transportation costs of animals and feed, improve bio-security, air quality and conserve water while providing a new cash flow.

ATD Waste Systems Inc. has developed a closed loop hog manure recovery system that allows the integration of the industry on a larger scale than is currently possible with environmental safety. It allows the industry to organize and relocate for greater profits by virtually eliminating odours and taking the water out of the manure for re-use while producing a dry fertilizer in a compact concentrated form. This eliminates the need for nearby land for manure disposal and collects more nutrients. It allows large scale hog farms to reduce transportation costs and increase profits by locating close to their labour, feed and slaughter services while providing improved bio-security for staff and animals.
