Understanding Your Market Needs

Animal waste has become a concern for animal farms and feeding operations for a wide variety of livestock. This material contains pathogens, which can be harmful to humans and wildlife. The material can add environmentally harmful nutrients to runoff water leading to waterway damage and large fines for farmers. The material will also give off offensive odors causing problems with neighboring communities.

Equipment and corresponding processes may also need updated or replaced over time from evolution of technology or normal wear and tear.

Solutions to Meet Your Needs

Quicklime and hydrated lime have been mainstay solutions to many of these issues for decades. These products can be a cost effective solution to many of the growing problems that farmers face.

High Calcium Quicklime

  • Reduces pathogen growth by raising the pH of a material over 12, sterilizing the material by breaking down the bacteria present
  • Makes material more safe to handle and can avoid fines by inspectors
  • Produces heat as it reacts with the water content of the animal waste, which also kills bacteria
  • Stabilizes some hazardous nutrients, like phosphorus, reducing the likeliness of leaching into runoff water, helping to avoid fines and lost revenue
  • Reduces the off gassing of hydrogen sulfide, minimizing odors 
  • Various grades available to meet to your specific needs

High Calcium Hydrated Lime

  • Reduces pathogen growth by raising the pH of a material over 12, sterilizing the material by breaking down the bacteria present
  • Makes material more safe to handle and can avoid fines by inspectors
  • Stabilizes some hazardous nutrients, like phosphorus, reducing the likeliness of leaching into runoff water, helping to avoid fines and lost revenue
  • Reduces the off gassing of hydrogen sulfide, minimizing odors
