  10. Phosphorus removal from ethanol condensed thin stillage to produce a profitable, recycled fertilizer, while improving surface water quality.

    SBC: KANSAS ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: 84

    The expansion of the ethanol industry has led to the wide spread availability and economic pricing of distillers grains (DGS), resulting in significant amounts of DGS being commonly included in animal diets. DGS typically replaces corn and protein supplements in the ration, but is has a much higher phosphorus concentration than corn. Therefore, the inclusion of DGS in livestock rations can signifi ...
