Agriculture and Farming

Whether you’re a farmer or a major agricultural business, you can contribute to more sustainable use of our precious natural resources. Desotec is the partner you can trust for reducing odor emissions, purifying wastewater, and treating biogas and process liquids.

Treating Agricultural Air Emissions and Odors

The agricultural and food industries are at the heart of rural communities. Odor removal is a key concern for many businesses. As legislation becomes stricter and urban areas sprawl, more agricultural companies are facing odor complaints from neighbors and potential fines from the authorities. Slaughterhouses, pet food and animal feed factories, and pesticide and fertilizer production facilities are among the industries seeking industrial odor control solutions.

Desotec filters remove odorous molecules such as ammonia (NH3) found in animal urine and manure, amine smells from fish oil production, and mercaptans at slaughterhouses. Our swift delivery enables your company to quickly address smell complaints while keeping air fresh and community relations harmonious.


Wastewater Treatment Services

The agricultural and feed production industries play an important role in protecting the human food chain and our environment.

Runoff or wastewater contaminated with pesticides can contain persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and other substances of very high concern (SVHC). These substances must be removed to protect human health and aquatic life.

Wastewater from production and cleaning processes in the food and feed industry can contain residues of agricultural chemicals or chlorinated cleaning substances. These residues are measured as adsorbable organic halides (AOX), for which activated carbon filtration is recognized as a Best Available Technique (BAT). Treatment also reduces chemical oxygen demand (COD) levels to keep waterways thriving.

Desotec’s mobile water treatment services handle a range of flow rates and concentrations, ensuring the safe discharge or reuse of your wastewater and boosting your company’s sustainability.

Farmers are the stewards of nature, providing us with food and connecting us to the land. Desotec’s simple and sustainable mobile filtration solutions help make the agricultural industry healthier and greener, protecting our environment and rural communities.

Purifying Process Gases and Liquids in the Agricultural Industry

Many farms are now aiding the transition to renewable energy by installing technology to convert agricultural by-products into biogas and biomethane. Desotec filters purify these gas streams, enabling you to produce high quality fuels and in turn diversify your farm’s income.

Our water filters are also installed in animal feed and human food supplement factories to remove impurities from process liquids, resulting in higher quality products. Desotec supplies mobile activated carbon filtrations services to producers of fish oils and amino acids, among other products.

How We Help You

Desotec Sustainable Mobile Filtration Solutions

Nobody understands our land better than farmers and food producers. Desotec enables you to focus on what you do best by providing full-service mobile activated carbon solutions for treating air and water.

Available for rental, our filters require little upfront investment. Our filters are also modular, which means it’s easy to scale them up or down to meet changing needs. They’re also highly efficient for intermittent flows.

All filtration waste is transported safely away from your site in closed units. Contaminants are destroyed in accordance with national and EU legislation, and carbon is reactivated wherever possible. This circular system boosts your sustainability, ensuring a greener Europe for future generations.

Desotec supported us with the engineering and supply of our air purification system. This enabled us to capture odors and prevent emissions to our neighbors.
