Anuvia Plant NutrientsZellwood, FloridaAnuvia Plant Nutrients

Anuvia recently opened its first environmentally friendly fertilizer production facility near Orlando — a $98 million project with capacity to manufacture over 200 tons/day of high-efficiency, multi nutrient, slow-release specialty commercial-grade fertilizer products. Feedstocks include municipal biosolids, food waste and digestate from anaerobic digester facilities; manures and algae could be accommodated. Tour includes background on facility siting, physical viewing of organics receiving area, odor control, fertilizer production, chemical storage, environmental controls and warehouse. 


Alliance DairiesTrenton, FloridaAlliance Dairies

A dairy farm with 6,100 mature cows and 5,500 replacements installed a DVO mixed plug flow digester designed for a freestall barn flush system in 2010 to reduce manure-related odors and generate power for the dairy operation. Separated solids are used for bedding, as well as soil amendments. Alliance Dairies was the first dairy in northern Florida to receive a permit from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for its sustainable wastewater management practices.
