We are extremely pleased to have third-party research validation of the hydrogen sulfide and odor reduction benefits that ManureMagic™ provides our customers.

DryLet, LLC, a biotechnology company providing an industry-leading product for use in bioremediating animal waste, announced today the results of a Purdue University study that highlights the results of ManureMagic™ reducing deadly hydrogen sulfide gas and noxious odors generated in pig farming operations.

The study, which was conducted by Dr. Albert Heber in the Agriculture and Biological Engineering Department at Purdue University, tested the efficacy of ManureMagic™ in reducing hydrogen sulfide and odor from swine manure under controlled lab conditions. “The evaluation of ManureMagic™ for reducing gas and odor emissions was completed in the same lab used for the National Pork Producers Council test of manure additives in 2000,” said Dr. Heber.

After completion of the 42-day study, researchers found that at typical doses, ManureMagic™ significantly reduced hydrogen sulfide by 30 percent. Additionally, odor release was reduced by 40 percent. As much as a 50 percent reduction in hydrogen sulfide was observed at elevated dosing rates. The results also found that the use of ManureMagic™ had no observable negative effects on manure fertilizer value, which is critical in large production operations due to its secondary usage.

This breakthrough in swine manure management comes at a time when the industry continues to be concerned about high levels of hydrogen sulfide gas build up in the manure storage facilities associated with swine production. “We are extremely pleased to have third-party research validation of the hydrogen sulfide and odor reduction benefits that ManureMagic™ provides our customers,” said Steve Ellis, Founder and Executive Vice President Sales of DryLet, LLC. “We have observed for several years that our customers have benefited in these areas, but having the validation from the Purdue University study confirms the results our end-users have found when using ManureMagic™ in their production facilities.”

In a 2015 Wall Street Journal article, ManureMagic™ earned accolades for the benefits producers who use the product were seeing in reducing odors and gas build-up associated with animal production. “ManureMagic™ is really an investment in your neighborhood,” said Randy Lackender, a pork producer from Iowa City, Iowa. “We’re buying it all of the time because it works.”
