Presentation Title: What’s Your “Big Mac®”?

What’s Your “Big Mac®”?
Palletizable Filtrexx Soxx™ that did not slide when stacked on pallets allowed rapid advancement of palletization, which led to scale, which led to what Rod Tyler calls Filtrexx’s “Big Mac®.”

Compost marketing entrepreneur grew a company that today uses over a million cubic yards of compost annually.

Selling Your Sustainability Story
Magic Dirt™

What looks like peat, acts like peat but isn’t peat? That’s the sustainability story behind Magic Dirt™, made from anaerobically digested dairy manure fibers.

Nutrient Credit Procurement Update
State legislation could create opportunities for advanced BMPs like anaerobic digestion to predictably sell forward large volumes of “long-term verified nutrient credits.”

State proposals to procure nutrient reductions like commodities may offer anaerobic digestion projects new revenue streams.

New Technologies Capture Phosphorus And Ammonia
Separated solids with high P levels (1). Samples (2) after each stage of the P recovery process (from left to right): slurry; solids after dewatering; liquids after dewatering; and final low P liquid product.

Companies, often in tandem with universities, are developing phosphorus and ammonia recovery systems that can be paired with anaerobic digesters.

Compost Use On Athletic Fields And Golf Courses
Within three years of when compost was first used on the fairways and tee boxes, the Meadows of Sixmile Creek golf course in Wanaukee, Wisconsin was able to replace 100 percent of its synthetic fertilization and 95 percent of its chemical herbicides. Compost is supplied by Purple Cow Organics.

Compost manufacturers in the Southeast and Midwest are capitalizing on their products’ inherent capabilities to build soil organic matter, retain moisture and provide nutrients.

In addition to calories, people and animals need a range of nutrients, including amino acids, lipids, vitamins and minerals, to stay healthy. Most of these come from our diets (Vitamin D from sunshine is one exception). While the amino acids, lipids and vitamins in our diets are produced by plants or animals, all the required minerals originate in soils.
