Ireland: INNOQUA demo site in Craughwell
The farm in Craughwell is home to 100 dairy cows, milked twice a day. Around 5,000 litres per day of wastewater goes to the dairy parlour sump, containing animal waste and parlour washings waste.
The INNOQUA system will treat some of the wastewater produced by parlour washings from the facility, while the rest will be stored in a holding tank then emptied by slurry spreading at specific times and within regulations. Beneficiaries include farms and similar agricultural facilities.
Design Capacity: 100 to 200 L/day
Source of Wastewater: Milking parlour washings and animal waste
Specific Scientific Research Objectives:
To demonstrate the versatility of the INNOQUA process in treating agricultural wastewater and enable improved management of wastewater at dairy farms.
The INNOQUA system consists of a lumbrifilter and primary settlement tanks.
