Novel idea proposal for design of compact cow dung dewatering system
AbstractThe growing demand for organic fertilizers and increasing awareness on rooftop farming in urban cities was identified as a motivation for the design of compact cow dung dewatering system.The removal of moisture present in the cow dung makes it an effective organic fertilizer. In this work, design of compact cow dung dewatering system is proposed to separate the solid from the liquid waste at the farmer’s site in villages and to obtain moisture less organic manure. Existing cow dung dewatering machine was found to be high in cost, complex operation and not compact to fit for farmers having two to three cows. Thus in this study, four concepts were generated for dewatering the cowdung and convert into manure.
