Agricultural Wastewater Treatment

Agricultural wastewater treatment

The agriculture market is unique in its need. The requirements from the wastewater treatment plant are not set standards as in municipal wastewater. In animal farms such as dairies and piggeries the slurry is screened and then spread on land as a fertilizer. The limiting factor is the TN quantities over the year. The farmer will choose a solution that is an optimization between the cost of treatment, the cost of spreading the slurry and the size of land available. One common thing for all farms is the need for nitrogen reduction alongside with a wish for a simple system to operate.
