Turning Waste into Opportunity: How Charter Empowers Sustainable Agriculture

The agricultural industry faces a challenge: managing wastewater byproducts like manure and liquid dairy residuals. These materials can be expensive to store, transport, and dispose of.  Fortunately, Charter provides innovative solutions that transform these byproducts into valuable resources.

Our belt filter presses, screw presses, and dewatering equipment dewater these materials into a solid "cake." This process significantly reduces storage and transport costs, improves handling for further processing (such as composting), and lowers overall disposal expenses. Essentially, Charter's technology takes a costly and difficult-to-manage byproduct and turns it into a more manageable and potentially valuable resource.

Sustainable Sludge Management: From Waste to Fertilizer

Charter goes beyond simply managing wastewater residuals.  Our Lime Post Treatment process transforms these materials into a valuable soil amendment. This process stabilizes sludge, creating a dry, easy-to-handle product ideal for land application. By adding lime during processing, the system dewaters sludge and produces a crumbly mixture that won’t clog equipment. This efficient method helps farms meet agricultural regulations and promotes sustainable sludge management, reducing reliance on landfills.

Efficient and Customizable Solutions for Every Farm

From planting to processing, agricultural production relies on the efficient movement of crops like corn, rice, soybeans, and wheat.  Charter's custom-built Belt and Screw conveyors excel at this task, seamlessly transporting these crops throughout the production cycle.  We understand that every farm has unique needs. That's why we offer a range of skid-mounted systems that can be customized to your specific requirements. These systems can include individual components like belt filter presses or complete "plug and play" solutions incorporating essential components like feed pumps, in-line mixers, polymer systems, and control panels. With Charter, you can create a system that seamlessly integrates with your existing agricultural operations, optimizing efficiency and sustainability.
