bionomics for agriculture

Posted on Posted in applications

Agriculture is very different today from the type of agriculture depicted in the image that brought you here…

Todays intensive agriculture and livestock husbandry often produces more ‘waste’ and manures than can be safely land applied before those nutrients find their way into one body of water or another and cause over – nutrification and eutrophication.

The Baltic sea is a dramatic example of what kind of environmental damage agricultural nutrient ‘overflow’ combined with municipal nutrient rich effluent can cause “downstream”.

While biogas technology is known and in use in some agricultural operations, conventional biogas tech only takes care of part of the cycle of dealing with manures. Even though biogas facility equipped farms may fraction their digester outputs, there still is substantial liquid fraction to deal with, which requires a landbase. Intensive agricultural operations often find themselves short of the required land-base and over-nutrification occurs leading to downstream eutrophication as seen in the Baltic sea image.

bionomic wastewater processing

Bionomic wastewater processing deals with the entire organic waste matter re-cycle and reclaims and binds all nutrients. First in the anaerobic stage and last in the photosynthesis micro-algae stage to fix dissolved nutrients. For intensive agricultural operations, bionomic processing of their combined organic wastes reduces land-base requirements, allows capture of ALL nutrients and their conversion to stackable fertilizer as well as reduces environmental impacts while decreasing dependence on fossil resources to improve the economic bottom line.
