Choose the Beddingmaster from Mavasol
The BeddingMaster has been developed by combining age-old composting techniques and the knowledge and experience of Daritech. The BeddingMaster converts cow manure into comfortable and hygienic beddingmaterial. The verified and controlled composting process allows manure to be reused in livestock cubicles. Clean and affordable bedding, pleasant for humans and animals.
Manure is a valuable product that can be used to earn money in livestock farming. With the BeddingMaster, the manure is efficiently converted into a valuable product for the farmer and a high level of comfort and health for the cows. Mavasol helps dairy farmers to comply with environmental regulations for their manure. Profit is generated by reducing fertilizer processing costs and increasing fertilizer yield.
We help you on your way to a circular revenue model
Circular economy is becoming increasingly important. By properly handling raw materials and increasing the efficiency of the processes, the carbon footprint can be significantly reduced while saving money for the dairy farm. The BeddingMaster helps livestock farmers to tie the end of the chain to the beginning.
How the Manure Composting process works
Don't waste time and money on sawdust and shavings, Mavasol has the sustainable solution. Bedding developed for dairy farmers who use recycled manure as bedding.
STEP 1: 35% Dry dust
The slurry is pushed out of the boxes and collected in a pit. With the Screw Press Separator specially designed by Daritech, the water is drained from the manure and 36% dry matter remains. This is the ideal raw material for the BeddingMaster. The solid fertilizers are fed into the BeddingMaster through a fixed opening.
STEP 2: Composting by using the present bacteria
The beauty of composting solid manure is that the aerobic bacteria, which consume the organic matter, are already in the solids thanks to the dairy cows. These bacteria start the composting process.
STEP 3: With the right are supply, rotation and a controlled temprature
Once inside the BeddingMaster, the bacteria multiply, completing the work started in the cows' stomachs. A fan pulls air through the drum, providing an ample supply of air, which mixes with the solids tumbling through the drum's rotation. Within hours, the activity of the bacteria raised the temperature above 65°C (150ºF). Due to the rotation process, the temperature in the machine and the aeration, the manure is completely composted in 12 to 24 hours.
STEP 4: Resulting in a suitable bedding material of compost
The hygienic and dry material that comes out of the BeddingMaster is dry and scent-free. The material is comfortable for cows and can be used directly as bedding material. In addition, the end product can also be used as a soil improver.
The result is a hygienic, scent free and dry beddingmaterial
Thanks to the clean end-product and thus a reduction of bacteria in the stables, the health of the cow is improved. Our manure composting method is now being used on several dairyfarms in Europe. In many of these projects, the BeddingMaster is used in combination with a biogas installation. First of all, nutrients are extracted from the manure and other organic waste products and used to generate electricity. After this, the residual product from the biodigester goes to the BeddingMaster to be composted, so that it can be reused as compost or as circular box litter.
Our solutions for manure management
A certified manure management system
Since 2013, the BeddingMaster has been officially certified and validated. The tests are performed in the context of the European Animal By-Products Regulation and ISO standards (EU 1069/2009 and EU 142/2011). The BeddingMaster also meets the export requirements of France, the NF-U standard. This means that the BeddingMaster process has been carried out correctly within the system and is free of bacteria.
In order to transport or export digestate (composted manure) to France, it must meet the quality requirements of the NF-U standard. Our BeddingMaster is certified according to these quality standards
In a validation study, the killing of micro-organisms in the relevant installation is investigated. In collaboration with the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) and the European NEN, this method has been laid down in a Dutch Technical Agreement (NTA8777) (Explanation). This research is carried out under accreditation. Based on the results of the investigation, requirements for the course of the procedure are established and recorded in a HACCP protocol. It investigates and demonstrates the minimal killing of pathogenic micro-organisms during the fermentation or composting process.
We hebben de 6-20, de 6-32 en de 8-40 versie van de BeddingMaster getest. Uit alle testen bleek dat deze BeddingMasters kunnen voldoen aan de vereiste 5log10 reductie van Enterococcus faecalis zoals vermeld in 142/2011. Bovendien bleek uit periodieke bemonstering van de output van de BeddingMaster dat E. coli voldoet aan de <1.000 CFU/gr (normaal gesproken tonen de resultaten <10 CFU/gr) zoals vermeld in 142/2011. Verder toonden Salmonella-analyses normaal gesproken "Niet aanwezig in 25 gr" zoals vermeld in 142/2011.
BeddingMaster meets demands EVDB
When used correctly and a sufficiently high temperature is reached during composting, pathogenic bacteria (Enterococcus faecalis, E. coli and Salmonella) are sufficiently reduced to meet the requirements of the European Animal By-Products Regulation.
