Manure Treatment with the BlueBox Ultra

Built for the most low-cost treatment of manure.

The BlueBox Ultra works both before or after an Anaerobic Digester.

The BlueBox Ultra turns manure into clean water.

BlueBox how it works

How it works.

Our proprietary biological treatment process is fully automated and reduces pollutants by 96% and nutrients by 99%.

Raw Manure

COD: 20 000 mg/l
NH4-N: 3 500 mg/l

Biological Treatment

Activated sludge bacteria “eat” the organics and convert the ammonia into elementary nitrogen

Treated Manure

COD: 800 mg/l
NH4-N: 35 mg/l

The BlueBox Ultra is the only Solution that works for Manure

Reduction: Ammonia

Reduction: Chemical Oxygen Demand

You’ll never again run out of storage capacity for your manure . . .

. . . because you are no longer storing manure !

Low-cost Manure Treatment

The most used technology to get rid of manure is biogas production. However, due to its low energy content, manure is not well suited for biogas production and requires the addition of additional feed sources in order to produce energy – which makes it costly.

But the real problem is this: the remaining liquid digestate after treatment of manure in a biogas plant has even higher concentrations of nutrients – and therefore causes even more eutrophication in areas where there already is an oversupply of nutrients.

Runoffs from biogas plants cause as much environmental problems as the original manure itself, as nitrogen and phosphorous are not reduced.

Biogas production with manure does not create a lots of energy and does not solve the problem of excess nutrients.
Today’s other treatment possibilities for manure are either nitrogen stripping or membrane treatment – but the operational costs of these solutions are much too high to make them commercially viable. Which is why manure is not being treated – but simply stored in lagoons.

Why is manure such a huge problem?

Large animal farms on small parcels of land produce an exorbitant amount of wastewater with nutrients that are rendered useless as a fertilizer. With nowhere for the manure to go, farms must either transport it over hundreds of miles to fields that can absorb the nutrients or create “manure lagoons”.
Manure lagoons release toxic gases and cause groundwater pollution from pollutants such as nitrogen, phosphorus, organic matter, antibiotics, pesticides, and diseases that leach into the groundwater and land.

Chemical Oxygen Demand:



  • Connector.

    Strong Reduction of Chemical Oxygen Demand

    The high COD load of manure of about 10’000 – 20’000 mg/l is reduced by 95% to around 100 – 500 mg/l.

  • Connector.

    Almost complete Removal of Nitrogen

    The extremely high nitrogen load of 3’000 – 4’000 mg/l is reduced by 99% to around 30-40 mg/l.

  • Connector.

    Purely biological Treatment Process

    The BlueBox Ultra is powered by a novel biological process that has been developed by Bluetector. This results in very low operating costs for electricity of 2 cents per gallon of manure.

  • Connector.

    No Reverse Osmosis

    The BlueBox Ultra does not use any reverse osmosis filtration. Therefore all of the treated water can be re-used – there is no reject water.
