The N2 Plasma Technology runs machines placed locally on livestock farms. Our technology enables local production of fertiliser using only livestock slurry, air and electricity – dramatically reducing harmful emissions and improving yield at the same time.
The N2 technology adds nitrogen from the air into slurry, which increases the nitrogen content. The reaction prevents the loss of ammonia and eliminates methane emissions, making it a real solution helping to achieve climate target commitments on an industrial scale.
The end-product is a nitrogen enriched organic (NEO) fertiliser, which has the same characteristics as normal slurry, but contains more plant-available nitrogen and has significantly less emissions. It can still be spread using existing farm equipment, enabling farmers to improve their own food production, reduce the need for chemical fertiliser, and make farming more circular.
The machines are the size of a shipping container and easily integrated into existing farm infrastructure. Liquid manure is treated continuously prior to storage for application at the right time. A typical set up might be between the shed where livestock is kept and the manure storage.
N2 Applied has partnered with GEA to commercialise the technology in the dairy and beef sector. GEA is now manufacturing machines using our technology ready for installation on dairy farms around the world. Information on the GEA ProManure E2950, can be found here.
