Processing manure from 1,500 beef cows (Introduced to: Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Animal Quarantine Service, Moji Office)
|Processed Material and Amount||Beef cow manure, 10 tons/day|
|Overview||Small space composting of cow manure generated in a quarantine processing facility|
|Expand equipment||Following relocation of the quarantine facility, they built a new composting facility and set up a system for processing on-site.|
|Eliminate incomplete fermentation||In order to solve the odor problem they were facing, they introduced C-Mode and built a system that promotes aerobic fermentation and does not produce foul odor.|
|Uniformly mix materials||By mixing cow manure and auxiliary materials in C-Mode, materials are made uniform, realizing even composting processing.|
The Animal Quarantine Service Moji Office was built in 2002, and it is the largest quarantine facility in Japan. This facility can inspect 1,500 imported cattle.
Quarantined cattle stay in the facility for about one month, so they introduced a composting facility to process the cow manure discharged during their stay.
By introducing C-mode, they improved upon the odor problem which had plagued the old quarantine facility, and were able to save space and efficiently process the cow manure.
Mixed materials are transported to the compost building on a conveyor belt, and they have built a transport system so that materials can be deposited at the desired position.
Regular maintenance is done on the equipment, so it has lasted for more than 10 years since it was introduced, and it is still operating smoothly without noticeable trouble.
