Webinar-Separation Technologies for Capturing Nutrients from Manure (1 CEU)

Friday, Jan. 18, 2019 - 2:30pm to 3:45pm
Event Type: 
University of Nebraska Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center

Exporting phosphorus and possibly nitrogen from larger livestock operations as well as regions of large livestock populations is often essential for protecting water quality. Solids (and nutrient) separation technologies are an option for concentrating nutrients for export. This webinar will introduce three approaches to solids separation that are being applied in commercial settings:

  • The Mobile Struvite Project: Phosphorus cycling between the dairy and alfalfa industries
  • Newtrient Case Studies of Commercial Multi-stage Separation System
  • GeoTextile Bag and Polymer System for Novel Plant Nutrient Products

Our three experts will introduce field experiences and case studies to help us understand the strengths and potential application of each of these promising separation systems.


  • Joe Harrison, Washington State University
  • Mark Stoermann, Newtrient
  • Jeff Porter, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service

*This webinar qualifies for 1 CEU for Maryland Agricultural Nutrient Management (proof of attendance required). Send documentation of attendance to MDA's Agricultural Nutrient Management Program at with your name and certification number.
