Project Description

The objective of the SLURRES project is to generate data through testing to support the design of a prototype filtration dewatering unit to be integrated into a process flow and business model mobilising slurries for community anaerobic digestion (AD). This technology will reduce cost and improve environmental impact of manure management, providing farmers an incentive to make substantial supplies available for community AD in a technically, economically and energetically viable manner.
