Private industry and the University of Vermont recently unveiled a new technique to rid liquid manure of much of its odor-causing bacteria. The technology sucks liquid manure through a large tube with an electrical current running through it, which kills about 90 to 95 percent of the bacteria. It also binds some phosphorus to the dead bacteria, which then drop out of the liquid. For more, link to: http://www.csrwire.com/article.cgi/5417.html
