We acidify slurry because we loose too much ammonia to the atmosphere. Slurry acidification is used to reduce these emissions and instead bind the nutrients inside the slurry.
Ammonia (N) evaporates from animal housing, slurry storage and during slurry spreading on fields. The JH Slurry Acidification system enables a reduction of the evaporation already at the source – inside the house – leaving much more plant available N in the slurry than in non-acidified slurry.
Besides the obvious advantage that slurry acidification leaves more plant avalilable-N in the slurry, it also changes the animal welfare and the work environment inside the housing significantly for the better and reduces the pollution of our atmosphere and surrounding environment.
