Why treat your manure instead of spreading it?


Hog manure is undoubtedly a valuable source of fertilizer for agriculture. On the other hand, the conventional practice of spreading it on fields generates numerous economic and environmental constraints and contributes to conveying a sometimes-negative image of the pork industry, particularly with regard to the discomfort caused by odours.

The solution proposed by Solugen combines economic benefits with environmental advantages and considerably improves socio-acceptability. Solugen’s technology is based on a continuous treatment of the slurry pumped from the pre-pit. In doing so, slurry pits are no longer necessary. This results in many benefits.
