Viltra can assist you in protecting your farm and surrounding environment from the harms of wastewater pollution, by designing systems that can meet the highest of effluent quality standards, regardless of where you are in the UK or Ireland.

Viltra can deliver site-specific, tailored solutions for farming applications to treat slurry and silage runoff as well as the wastewater treatment of liquid digestate from anaerobic digestion plants prior to discharge.

Experience, Customers & Challenges Faced

Digestate liquid, slurry and silage require a form of treatment, with the goal to reduce and remove nutrients particularly nitrogen, before it can be discharged to a watercourse or public sewer. When used on the land as a fertiliser, excess nitrogen can cause environmental problems. Viltra acknowledge the potential detrimental effects on the environment and enforce vigilant consideration to protect and preserve this.

Silage effluent has the second-highest BOD value after milk making it over 200 times more damaging than raw domestic sewage. Slurry and silage are extremely destructive pollutants. Upon entry to a watercourse either can kill fish and other wildlife, and drastically reduce the quality of the water.

The collection, treatment and disposal of silage, slurry and digestate liquid effluent requires a solution that has been designed specifically to take on the challenge and to meet strict effluent quality standards set by local environment agencies across the UK and Ireland.

Viltra can design bespoke solutions for the wastewater treatment of digestate liquid, slurry and silage which involves the removal of nutrients by various methods including dissolved air flotation (DAF).
