AbstractCombined animal feeding operations generate low value manure which cannot be economically transported more than a few miles and cannot be used locally at proper agronomic rates. Local nutrient overload then occurs, potentially resulting in odors, lowered water quality and pest insects; depending on how the manure is handled. Quickly extracting these nutrients before undesirable natural processes occur and concentrating them into forms valuable enough to economically transport long distances would solve these problems. We are focusing on the Hermetia system as the economic engine/ commercial driver to demonstrate economic feasibility and environmental friendliness of this approach.
