Composition and Method for Reducing Ammonia and Soluble Phosphorus in Runoff From Animal Manure

Calcium silicate nanoparticles are combined with manure amendments used to control ammonia emissions, such as alum, aluminum chloride, ferric chloride or sodium bisulfate. The mixture results in dramatically lower soluble phosphorus levels in manure, resulting in less phosphorus runoff and leaching.

Benefits
• This technology greatly reduces non-point source phosphorus pollution from animal manure

Applications
• The mixture of calcium silicate nanoparticles with acids used for ammonia control results in lower ammonia levels in chicken houses and less phosphorus runoff
