The Silocover reduces ammonia emissions by approx 80% and holds them in the slurry / digestate as ammonium, which is a readily available form of nitrogen for uptake by plants. Ammonia is agriculture and farming's most harmful and proliferant air pollutant, it makes up 88% of the UK's total ammonia emmisions. The silocover is a self supporting above ground store cover that reduces air pollution.
Covering improves manure as a fertiliser and reduces ammonia emissions from slurries created by pig, beef and dairy farming sector.
Also if you want to increase the size of your herd but are short on slurry storage, keeping the rainwater out will give you a bit more space in your current store.
Covering the biogas / anaerobic digestion end waste product digestate, improves the strength of the fertiliser, meaning it goes further, less is required upon application to land, this reduces artificial fertiliser application rates and costs.
Our covers have a unique, innovative water drainage system, and are an efficient and economical way to cover various types of silos (concrete, steel and plastic).
They come with a 5 year manufacturers guarantee, have a design life of 20 years, however we've seen Silocovers that have been in place in Holland on wastewater plants that are still going strong and looking good after 25 years, so this is a robust bit of kit that you can be proud of.
We can supply Silocovers to fit the usual round silo shape, we can also fit them to above ground rectangular/square slurry stores, and also below ground slurry lagoons where a concrete ring is laid down for us to attach to.
Either above ground concrete or steel silo (Wiefferink Silo Cover) or below ground earthen banked lagoon constructions (please see our TenCate Lagoon Cover)
Wiefferinks products are made from sustainable materials to perform a sustainable task, that's a double win scenario, plus you get a bunce in the quality of your fertiliser, make that a triple win.
