The owner of a 1,500 cow dairy in Colorado recycled water from his waste facility for flushing within his 4 new free stall buildings. The operation is located adjacent to a newer residential development within a northern Colorado community. The dairy received many odor complaints from the adjacent residents of the town.
The owner of the dairy, in conjunction with a research project initiated by Colorado State University (CSU), looked at several alternatives to eliminate odor and improve effluent quality to a level where it could be reused as flush water for the free stall buildings. After exploring the initial costs, energy requirements and operational needs for several systems, The BiO2 Solution™ system was chosen as the preferred alternative.
BiO2 Solution™ Biological Control Center
Independent testing, completed by Colorado State University (CSU) as part of the research project, showed substantial improvement in effluent quality and substantial reduction in odor.
