Excessive farming and the use of chemical fertilizers have damaged soil fertility in several parts of the word. Many governments nowadays have undertaken a program to develop organic fertilizers from slurry, sludge and peat so as to market these as a supplement to chemical fertilizers.
Several methods are available to develop organic fertilizers. Lakson and associates “introduce a different approach converting biomass, such as animal manure, slurry, sludge, peat, etc, into a useful product that can be classified as Class A -.fertilizer.
The approach consists of processing biomass (animal manure, municipal organic waste, digestat, pulp and paper sludge, wood waste and other organic waste ) through our integrating Biomass Conditioning System BCS including proprietary intellectual property of optimisation methods to come out with high quality fertilizer preprogrammed to achieve required final product. The system has the advantage of dehydrating, grinding, drying homogenisation and proper dozing of various ingredients while, at the same time rendering the product pathogen-free and reduces the odor.
The complete integrated BCS system will provide the required technical and economical performance to ensure quality preparation for slurry, sludge, peat and other organic materials. The by-product of these materials has the ability to safeguard organic materials such as nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium; this increases its standard as a fertilizer and ensures higher organic fertilizer quality production
The soil research department in several universities of agriculture has confirmed that organic fertilizers developed by organic ingredients in the majority have many benefits and can replace chemical derived fertilizers. Particularly, organic fertilizers derrived from poultry litter are very good for several types of soil,
Animal manure (cow, hog, chicken, duck, and horse) has a long tradition of use as an effective fertilizer. However, with modern intensive agricultural production, manure volumes can exceed the capacity of nearby croplands to absorb the nutrients in the manure.
Numerous cases have been reported in the media of inappropriately spread manure contaminating both
the surface and groundwater and seriously affecting both human health and the environment.
The integrated BCS together with our programmed dosing blending System can transform animal manures enhanced to a fine dry powder that is virtually free of both pathogens and offensive odors. In this dry state (approx. 10% moisture), the odor is significantly reduced and the fertilizer derived from manure can then be stored, efficiently transported and sold as a high quality fertilizer.
The manure can be conditioned blended, at the time of production, with a variety of other minerals and chemicals for manufacture of custom fertilizers.
Once processed, the manure can also be pelletized using also granulation process for easy handling and application to farmlands, municipal parks, gardening, green houses and much more application .
The key advantages of the integrated BCS has lower capital and operating costs and smaller foot prints requirements compared with conventional hammer mills and rotary drum dryer systems and several other equipment to come to the quality achieved by our system.
The machine’s footprint is about 150 sqf which is about a fraction of the size of conventional systems to reach the same product results. Conventional systems also require significantly more operating energy and space to dry, screen, blend, the manures compared to the integrated BCS
Transformed manure and other biomass can also have a value as a fuel source. LAKSON has developed complete turn-key solutions to cleanly and cost effectively burn conditioned manure and generate ‘green” power.
