Gasification: a new way of solving manure issues

Mavitec Environmental offers an innovative gasification system that converts various kinds of manure into green energy and high value EcoChar: a new way of solving manure issues! Gasification is an environmental technology that offers a lot of advantages such as volume reduction up to 85%, renewable energy, reduction of COand high valuable EcoChar, an amazing product that can be used as soil improver.

Gasification is a chemical reaction caused by heating material (manure) in an oxygen-starved environment. The result of this process is a hot air stream of about 1000°C. The produced energy can be (re)used for various purposes such as steam, hot water, hot air and electricity. Besides heat the gasifier produces EcoChar, a very valuable by-product of the gasification process. EcoChar still contains the mineral ash and fixed carbon, which offers great environmental advantages and economic value. EcoChar has a lot of unique properties: it’s carbon-rich, dry and free from pathogens, it can hold up 2.5 times its own weight with moisture, guarantees less soak-away from high quality nutrients and is odourless. A smart and sustainable solution for modern manure issues and answer to growing need for soil fertility.

Mavitec Environmental is part of the Mavitec Group. Together with our American partner EarthCare, Mavitec has been developing gasification systems since 2002. Mavitec has full scale plants with a capacity of 1.5 up to 2.3 ton/hr, operating in the U.S.A. (cow manure, chicken, turkey and hog litter, wet distillery grain, food waste), The Netherlands (pig manure) and Russia (layer poultry, turkey litter). More installations under construction in the Middle East.
