Why is Pre-Conditioning Necessary Prior to Manure Granulation?

There are numerous characteristics that make raw manure an unideal feedstock for granulation. Pre-conditioning manure must take place before the manure can be effectively used as a feedstock for optimal granulation to occur. Pre-conditioning focuses on: Particle size distribution: Large particles need to be removed Continue reading →
