Without Renew, manure handling stinks. Renew accelerates manure breakdown, increases its nutrient content, and reduces negative environmental impacts common in the livestock industry.
Aerobic bacteria digest manure 19.2 times faster than anaerobic bacteria. Renew delivers oxygen to manure pits and transforms them into the perfect environment for aerobic bacteria to thrive.
Aerobic bacteria release carbon dioxide, which has no smell and no affinity with hydrogen sulfides—the stuff that makes manure stink. Anaerobic bacteria break down solids into water and harmful methane gas. It’s the methane that carries hydrogen sulfides into the air and gives manure an odor that is definitely not fresh.
Renew holds the power to extend pumping intervals, clean flushing alleys, and eliminate the need for mechanical removal of bottom solids. All by promoting the growth of aerobic bacteria and discouraging the collection of solids.
Manure from an anaerobic system can cause crop damage because of high salt levels. Renew addresses the salt issue, promoting healthier plants.
