Technology description

N Applied  has  developed  a  manure  processing  technology  to  treat  manure  on  the  farm  and  turn  it  into  an environmental-friendly  organic  fertilizer.  The processing  unit  uses  only  electricity,  preferably  from  renewable sources, to capture nitrogen from air adding it to manure. This eliminates the ammonia loss in storage and during field application and makes the otherwise lost nitrogen available for the plants. It is not only creating an economic benefit but it also makes livestock production more sustainable by contributing to solving both environmental and health issues related to emissions.
Nitrogen in the form of ammonia, is recycled on the farm and  converted into nitrogen fertilizer. The mineral-N content from the input product is almost doubled. Assuming 4 kg Total-N/m3 with 2 kg NH3-N, treatment will result in  6 kg  Total-N/m3  with  4 kg  mineral-N  as  ammonium  nitrate.  The  plasma  technology  uses  electricity  to  fixate nitrogen  from  air  forming  nitrogen  oxides.  In the  absorption  system, the  nitrogen oxides  are  absorbed  into  the liquid and neutralize the liquid to a pH around 6. Combined with free ammonia the oxides react to form a stable ammonium nitrate fertilizer.
