Western droughts have created a huge demand for water recycling
in the dairy industry.
Clean Wave is poised to address this challenge while concurrently
reducing greenhouse gas emissions and farmer’s costs.
WATER AND THE DAIRY INDUSTRY
Eight years and millions of dollars of development have taken Clean Wave to the cusp of final deployment. We are currently seeking investment partners to complete our business plan.
Dairy wastewater is typically discharged to waste separation lagoons. These lagoons produce large quantities of Methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Solids also collect and must be removed regularly at a very high cost.
Clean Wave’s ecoFloc Hybrid System can virtually eliminate solids discharge to the lagoons, saving the dairy over $0.01 per gallon and eliminating the need to ever clean out the lagoons.
We also expect to reduce on-farm greenhouse gas emissions by almost 50%, with further reductions
possible through the application of other synergistic technologies.
ecoFloc separates dairy waste into 3 components: LIQUID, FIBERS and SOLIDS.
The liquid component can be used directly for irrigation or further processed to make it potable for the dairy herd.
Clean Wave’s ecoFlash Non-Thermal Drying can remove water using roughly 1/4 of the energy required by current thermal methods.
Fibers dried with ecoFlash can be used as an economical option for other forms of animal bedding or used as a commercial peat moss replacement.
Demand for a peat moss replacement is strong and growing. To date, no recycled dairy manure products have captured significant market share. Clean Wave’s formulations solve the problems that have limited the use of dairy fiber in the past.
The remaining dried solids are nutrient rich
and valuable to farms as a replacement for
commercially purchased fertilizer.
Gypsum dried with ecoFlash
ecoFlash’s energy efficiency makes it applicable to a range of aggregate materials, organic solids, and industrial products.
