Unfortunately the LAMMA exhibition came to an abrupt end this year, due to the adverse affects of mother nature! So instead of being a two day exhibition it was sadly closed on the second day, as the very high winds had caused significant damage to the some of the exhibition tents.
Day 1 was a busy day, with great turnout and foot traffic.
We were able to provide information to a variety of farmers about the Bio-QZ, which processes organic waste or fuel crops and improves the fermentation process in biogas plants. The Bio-QZ can be used for a variety of input material including maize sileage, grass sileage, whole rye sileage, potatoes, straw, manure and more. The input materials are fed into the Bio-QZ via a feed hopper. The homogeneously prepared substrate can then be fed directly into a hydrolysis tank or by using biomix pumps and other delivery systems, to the fermenters. Slurry is usually then added to the QZ. The Bio-QZ can greatly reduce the duration of the overall process and efficiency of the plant can be increased by more than 30%.
On the stand we had the Bio-Processor for food and other organic waste. This drew interest from farmers looking to save money on the costs associated with their organic waste. Within 24 hours the processor can turn the waste into a stabilised, low-odour product that has reduced by up to 80% of the original volume. The residue can then be used as fuel to supplement a suitable biomass unit or put to other uses such as soil enrichment. It can also be sent to AD.
We were talking about the pelletiser which can be tailored for any kind of raw materials; animal feed, biomass, biogas plant digestate, fertilizers etc. You can turn your waste into valuable fuel or fertilizer.
Also on our stand was the Vincent Screw Press, ideal for dewatering almost any kind of uncooked organic material. This drew interest and enquiries, as it is ideal for use in abattoirs for dewatering belly paunch/belly grass.
So, although the show was much shorter than we anticipated, we made some interesting connections and supplied people with information about the uses and applications of equipment suitable for the agricultural industry.
We look forward to the LAMMA exhibition next year, and with its move to the NEC, hopefully the weather won’t affect it!
