Due to the fuel shortages and driver shortages in the UK we are experiencing delays in our carbon deliveries. Early ordering is highly recommended.

Agri-waste Management


First off – there should be no such thing as agri-waste! Nova Q look at farming as a circular system. We use our innovative bacteria to utilise the full potential of slurries, farmyard manures, and other by products.

How can we include farm by-products as part of the valuable circular economy?

This is a challenge that faces modern farming the world over, but particularly in the highly intensive farming systems found in Ireland and the UK in particular – whether that’s Pigs, Poultry, Dairy or Beef.

We call it full-cycle-farming, and bacteria has a huge role to play.

So, our bottom line – if it is an organic by-product of agriculture, it is valuable. It needs to be treated in a way that maximises its value as a soil amendment and minimises its environmental impact.

Microbial inoculation for agricultural waste

Our ACTIVATOR range of products are highly active bacteria designed specifically to accelerate the biological oxidation process of slow to degrade organic matter. A stable range of bacteria products, when applied to organic streams, significantly reduces odours and improves biological breakdowns.

  • Slurry / Manure / Bedding applications to breakdown organic matter, reduce odour and improve the fertilizing value
  • Easy to use slurry treatment plans - no labour involved
  • Applications for deployment on stubble ground to help breakdown the straw left on the ground – essential in min-till and non-till farming
  • Applications for compost

In slurry applications, our activator bacteria is effective in the following areas:

  • Significantly reduces odours
  • Stabilises and retains sulphur
  • Reduces crusting and improves homogeneity
  • Stabilises volatile ammonia
  • The ACTIVATOR range of products are natural, non-pathogenic and with no genetically modified organisms
Treatment plans for slurry tanks are very simple to follow. Double dose at the beginning when the tank is at its lowest point, to populate the tank and then a maintenance dose every 4-5 weeks to enhance the functionality of the bacteria.
