Research brief: Effect of additives on slurry  characteristics

Several treatment approaches have been proposed as having the potential to abate the environmental burdens associated with manure management. One of such approaches is the use of slurry additives. In this Research Brief, Maxwell Owusu-Twum (UTAD), reports on his work to test the efficacy of slurry additives to help understand the environmental and agronomic effects of the additives. Read the Research Brief

Research brief: Simulation of poultry litter gasification

Thermal gasification is an alternative option for disposing of agricultural waste, sewage sludge, poultry litter and other forms of biomass. Daya Pandey, a fellow at University of Limerick reports on his work to further our understanding of manure gasification mechanisms. Read the Research Brief
