From Waste to Fertilizer

FEECO has provided numerous systems and equipment to convert waste products to  marketable, granular fertilizer or soil amendment products for both organic and inorganic applications.


From compaction granulation to disc pelletizing and drum granulation, we can create a fertilizer granule from your waste material or process by-product.


Inorganic Applications

If you have a dust, liquid, or filter cake that contains nutrients or minerals that could be used in a fertilizer or soil amendment product, we can provide the proper granulation testing to help you define a process for your application. We can then use the data gathered from testing to scale up the process and manufacture the equipment needed.


Common inorganic applications include ammonium sulfate, which is generated in nickel refineries, flue gas desulphurization from coal fired power plants, and caprolactam production used to make nylon. Similarly, FGD gypsum, or synthetic gypsum from flue gas desulphurization at power plants can also be transformed into a granular source of gypsum.


Organic Applications

FEECO also offers material testing services, complete systems, and custom equipment for the granulation of organic wastes such as manure or biosolids.



Automated with Rockwell Automation

All FEECO equipment and process systems can be outfitted with the latest in automation controls from Rockwell Automation. The unique combination of proprietary Rockwell Automation controls and software, combined with our extensive experience in process design and enhancements with hundreds of materials provides an unparalleled experience for customers seeking innovative process solutions and equipment.
