In the alley flooring, two channels are fitted, housing the system of separation by belts. 3% slopes are created on either side of the channels to lead the slurry there by gravity and during scraping. The belts entrain the solid phase (feces) during their journey in the upper position, in the direction of a storage pit installed at one end of the building. On the return journey they scrape the bottom of the channel, and carry the liquid phase (urine) to the other end of the building where it flows into a collection tank. The urine will be pumped to a storage silo. By preventing slurry from forming by the mix of feces and urine, DELTA X significantly reduces ammonia emissions in the barn.
No separation, no 'wave'
Separately collected and stored, the components can be converted to a portion rich in phosphate that is easy to apply to composting, methanisation or to spreading as well as a nitrogen rich bio-fertilizer portion and both are free of charge.
The quick separation of the urine outside the barn optimizes the cleanliness of the floor. The unpleasant scent of ammonia disappears, the cows breathe better as do personnel. Production is increased and chronique pathologies are reduced.

A study in progress will soon give rise to a publication validating the improvement in the carbon footprint of dairy farming, with a quantified reduction in CO2 emissions per cow and per year.
