Papawi is a 560 cow dairy farm on the South Island of New Zealand. When the current owners acquired the facility, the pre-existing effluent system limited production growth and would not have met new environmental regulations. Not wanting to install a multimillion gallon lagoon for the traditional 90 day storage process, Papawi elected to go with BioFiltro for its relatively small footprint, nominal operational costs, and scalability.
BioFiltro installed a weeping wall for primary solids separation and a 1,600 square feet BIDA® System which produces high quality effluent that is used to irrigate fodder crop.
- < 50 mg/LEffluent BOD
- < 50 mg/LEffluent TSS
- <1000/100 ml Effluent Fecal Coliformes
I really like the cleanliness and the small footprint... I'm very confident about it and I think it's the way of the future.
