  • Agri-Waste Technology - Design


    AWT has provided engineering design services to the livestock industry since 1984. We specialize in designing systems for clients that are customized for a particular site. Each project is led by an experienced agricultural engineer to ensure the project is performed well and within budget.

    Whether you are planning a new site or retrofitting an existing one, the manure management system will be one of the largest capital investments you will make. It is important to consider the total cost of ownership to ensure that the system you install will be cost effective and will provide the treatment and storage capacity to handle your existing and future needs. Let AWT help you with this important planning process. Our design engineers have planned, designed and provided ongoing support for dozens of systems throughout the United States.

    1. Choosing the type of system (lagoons, storage ponds, digesters)
    2. Sizing the system to meet current and future needs
    3. Liners, covers and other considerations.
    4. Considerations with respect to the total cost of ownership.
    5. Design of mortality management systems (composting, burial, incineration)
    6. Design of irrigation and other disposal systems
