Dunder as fertilizer

Recommended Posts

I know some times dunder is used to re-fertilize soil for for cane sugar. Is it useful in other applications as well? Have any farmers had any use or interest in your dunder?

There are a great number of research papers that cover a number of methods of remediation. Anaerobic digestion is the most prevalent method used to recycle the spent wash. PH adjustment after fermentation, then dilution before application as a fertilizer. I have found the addition of nitrogen balances the nutrients and makes it more effective. The system I am working on is use in semiaquatic environment, then filtration, to reclaim the water for reuse once it has had the majority of pollutants removed.

Can you point to some of the better studies you've come upon?

If you Google research on distillery spent wash treatment, you will get a large number of papers. To access some you will have to join some scholar paper networks. Most are free. I am not near my office for a while. But 2 minutes on Google and you will have a hundred hours worth of reading.
