- Case study shows how wastewater treatment system treats manure without polluting ground water, allows significant increase in animal production
- Depuporc treatment system uses OriginClear’s proprietary technology to remove smallest particles of manure, reduce ammonia levels
- Worldwide marketing agreement allows OriginClear to market, manufacture Depuporc animal-manure wastewater treatment system
OriginClear Inc. (OTC: OCLN), a leading provider of water-treatment solutions, has released an impressive case study showing how a swine-manure, wastewater treatment system developed in Spain by its licensed partner Depuporc treats all types of manure without polluting ground water, thus allowing significant increases in animal production. The case study came on the heels of OriginClear’s watershed announcement that it would be marketing the Depuporc integrated manure system worldwide.
“Proper management of manure wastewater is essential not only to swine farming but to the farming of other food animals: cattle, diary, sheep and poultry,” the case study reported (http://nnw.fm/g9Z70). “All have the similar issues and must treat the manure for productivity and the environment. In Spain, Depuporc and OriginClear have proven that their patented system is a cost effective and environmental solution.”
The case study reviews the performance of the Depuporc treatment system using OriginClear’s proprietary technology to remove the smallest remaining particles of solid manure before reducing ammonia to extremely low levels. After almost a decade of piloting and testing, OriginClear’s core technology has been fully validated and proven as an essential technology; now, this system that can help entire industries. In the case of animal farming, the technology presents a solution to a longstanding problem: how to deal with the extreme pollution involved in animal excrement disposal.
OriginClear’s partnership with Depuporc marks a major entrance for OCLN into the animal farms marketplace, a promising sector that is seeking answers to serious challenges limited the industry’s growth.
“Swine breeders and growers in Spain typically use their manure effluents for crop irrigation,” Depuporc co-owner Eduardo Chopo Fraguas noted in a news release. “However, due to the current oversaturation of ammonia in the soil and its effect on groundwater, recent regulations have placed a limit on the amount of ammonia per hectare that can be applied to the ground.”
“Limiting the amount of ammonia also limits the amount of manure generated and, therefore, the number of hogs that can be bred,” he continued. “This is occurring at a time when Spanish growers want to double or triple their capacity to meet the demands of reduced production in northern regions, such as the Netherlands, and the continuing swine flu epidemic in China, the world’s largest producer.”
“Their only solution is to treat the manure for fertilizer and water reuse,” Chopo concluded. “This is where our patented system, which incorporates OriginClear’s technology as a third and final step, has been shown to reduce pollutants and also generate valuable fertilizer and irrigation-grade water, solving a major barrier to expansion for these producers.”
According to Depuporc, tests showed that COD (chemical oxygen demand) was reduced from 83,000 to 300 mg/liter and ammonia from 11,000 to 230 mg/liter. Depuporc estimates that the system could limit annual nitrogen production by hog farms to 16 kilos per hectare, less than one-tenth the limit of 210 kilos per hectare per year allowed by law.
“The worldwide Depuporc marketing agreement will allow OriginClear to market and manufacture the Depuporc animal manure wastewater treatment product line through our network of licensees and potential sales channels while supporting that effort with PR and marketing,” Bill Charneski, president of OriginClear Group, stated in a news release.
