The VermiDigest by BioFiltro
Greetings from BioFiltro! We’ve been wriggling with activity, and we’re excited to share updates with you in our newsletter.
Follow the expansion of our BioFiltro worm family. Check out our newest installation:
Central Washington Wine Production Group (CWWPG)—Mattawa, WA. CWWPG’s BIDA System is designed to treat up to 20,000 gallons per day of winery process wastewater for reuse. You can read about their worm project and other sustainability initiatives here.
New Partnerships to Develop BioFiltro in the Southwest
BioFiltro is partnering with Dairy MAX and New Mexico State University to install two pilot units at dairy farms in New Mexico and Texas to treat a portion of their liquid manure. These pilots will be operating throughout the year 2024. With these demonstrations, BioFiltro hopes to prove to this new region that vermifiltration effectively removes solids and nitrogen from liquid manure.
Research & Development
Guillermo Tagle, BioFiltro’s VP of Product, has begun testing new BIDA filter medias. The experiment includes our standard filter of pine wood chips as a control, as well as pistachio shells, walnut wood chipped, and walnut wood ground. The overall goal is to identify alternative medias or byproducts that reduce BIDA construction and filter replacement costs, while also boosting sustainability by using low-value materials that are otherwise wasted.
Over 200,000 square feet of worm beds coming soon to Moxee Dairy in Washington state. It’s no small feat, but this cool time-lapse video from A&K Construction makes it look easy!
