CIRCOW sustainable animal husbandry circulation system integrates bioenergy technology and manure decomposition technology, and the manure is centrally treated, which will produce biogas, wastewater, and manure residues. CIRCOW provides a different solution from the past. With the characteristics of black soldier flies' decomposing feces and the algae can generate in the water, it can be transformed into nutritious food for cattle, forming a biological cycle, which can reduce the cost of feed purchase, and the biogas produced is used to generate electricity.
