WasteWater

South Korea Swine Production

  • Problems: Thick crust over lagoon causing strong odors
  • ACF-32 was applied directly to the lagoon with the following results:
    • After 3 weeks –floating solids were reduced and broken up
    • After 4 weeks – solids were dissolved into slurry form
    • After 5 weeks – all floating solids were eliminated
    • Final – total odor elimination and reduction in BOD of 70%
    • Effluent discharge requirements were met
    • Proved excellent for land farming
  • Created land farming opportunity
    • No odor when applied to fields
    • Increased fertilizer value
    • Corn yield increased by 50%
