Changes in the egg production industry during the past 20-30 years have produced waste management problems which threaten both water and air quality. Results from a number of research studies have identified two processes--aerobic biological stabilization and drying--that provide both odor control and the reduction of the water pollution potential of these wastes. In this manual, the theoretical concepts underlying each poultry waste management approach are discussed, and process design methodologies are presented. Included are design examples to illustrate the application of design methodologies. A discussion of the impact of design decisions on performance characteristics and computer programs to assist in the process design for each alternative are also presented. Both high-rise, undercage drying and aeration systems are compared to identify relative merits and provide economic projections. Odor control and plant nutrient conservation capabilities as well as refeeding potential for both alternatives are discussed.
