Animal and Poultry Waste Management
The Autoclave and Effective Animal and Poultry Waste Management
When it comes to animal and poultry waste management, sterilization is an important factor. This is why an autoclave is the best solution. Autoclaves are the most cost effective and safest waste management technology available today. Not only does the autoclave prevent airborne diseases caused when handling waste like animal and poultry waste but it also eliminates dangerous emissions due to waste disposal by incineration.
Autoclaves are pressurized chambers that use steam and pressure to sterilize a variety of waste including but not limited to:
- Medical Waste
- Infectious and Non-Infectious Biological Waste
- Blood Waste and Blood Products
- Animal, Human and Plant Cell Lines
How does an Autoclave Sterilize Animal and Poultry Waste?
- Aluminum bins are filled with packaged animal and poultry waste and then placed into the Autoclave
- Doors are shut and sealed with a hydraulic lock
- A Pre-Vacuum clears air from Autoclave and replaces it with steam
- Steam soaks the waste at temperatures ranging from 285 to 305 degrees F.
- A Post-Vacuum then dries the waste and also reduces treatment odors
- A green light comes on the indicate end of cycle and sterilization
- Door can then be opened and sterilized bins of animal and poultry waste can be safely unloaded
- Waste volume will be reduced by approximately 45-50%
Once Animal and Poultry Waste are sterilized in the Autoclave where do they go?
After the waste has been sterilized and reduced in the autoclave process it can then be dumped into a recycling shredder. Here at Global Re-Energy we provided a wide assortment of heavy duty, high quality, customized shredders to suite your specific needs.
From here, there is a selection of possibilities for shredded, sterilized animal and poultry waste. It can be sent to a landfill or, what we recommend here at Global Re-Energy, it can be sent to a gasification plant. Once the animal and poultry waste is at a gasification facility it can then be converted into new, useable energy and fuel. All combustible waste has the ability to be converted from waste to energy in the gasification process.
