Separation Technologies for Capturing Nutrients from Manure

Exporting phosphorus and possibly nitrogen from larger livestock operations as well as regions of large livestock populations is often essential for protecting water quality. Solids (and nutrient) separation technologies are an option for concentrating nutrients for export. This webinar will introduce three approaches to solids separation that are being applied in commercial settings:

  • The Mobile Struvite Project: Phosphorus cycling between the dairy and alfalfa industries
  • Newtrient Case Studies of Commercial Multi-stage Separation Systems
  • GeoTextile Bag and Polymer System for Novel Plant Nutrient Products
Our three experts will introduce field experiences and case studies to help us understand the strengths and potential application of each of these promising separation systems.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters for this webinar include:
  • Joe Harrison, Washington State University
  • Mark Stoermann, Newtrient
  • Jeff Porter, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service
Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webcast information page.
