An innovative heating and vaporisation system used in the industrial treatment of swine sewage to break down ammonium nitrate

An innovative heating and vaporisation system based on patented ‘hydrodynamic cavitation’ technology is being applied to the industrial treatment of swine sewage to break down ammonium nitrate with very high efficiency, following the recommendation of EU Regulation number 91-676-CEE to prevent nitrates entering the drinking water system. The system is dependent on advanced mechatronics used for mechanical ground support equipment for satellites, with hydrodynamic cavitation involving the formation and collapse of bubbles in a liquid via mechanical forces. The company involved, Wixta, is an incubatee of ESA’s Lazio Business Incubation Centre.
