GEA manure Decanter

GEA manure Decanters are designed to address the critical need to reduce the phosphate and nitrogen content of manure, thereby facilitating its environmentally friendly use as a natural fertilizer. Solid particles are efficiently dewatered to a liquid consistency for further processing into a hygienic fertilizer.

dewatered manure

Best separation of nutrients.

Livestock manure is a valuable fertilizer in modern agriculture. However, it must be properly integrated into the natural nutrient cycle. 

GEA manure Decanters turn manure into a recyclable resource to generate energy and reusable material – with the best possible yield.

The aim is to process the liquid manure, treat the associated nutrient surpluses and make specific use of the resulting products.
