Dataset on the characteristics of the liquid effluent issued from separation of faeces and urine under slats using V-shaped scraper in swine buildings

Abstract : Separation of faeces and urine under slats in swine buildings using different technologies such as V-shaped scraper is becoming popular. Indeed, such a separation can allow improving air quality in the building and can also facilitate management of manure through concentration of carbon and phosphorus in the solid phase. Though solid phase management is well established through anaerobic digestion, the liquid phase, mainly urine, is still to be recycled or disposed of. However, the characteristics of this kind of effluent are quite different compared to slurry obtained from conventional building and corresponding to a mix of urine and faeces. Such characteristics are poorly documented and very few data are available in the literature. This dataset provides insight on the characteristics of this effluent to achieve treatment or nutrient recovery. Nine pig farms equipped with a V-shaped scraper and using different farming practices were selected for the sampling of this liquid phase. Building characteristics including animal capacity and physiological stage of animals and feeding strategy were taken into account. The characterisation of this effluent focused on global parameters (pH, Alkalinity, TS, VS, TSS, VSS) but also on the carbon and nitrogen content (COD, TKN, TAN). Total compounds and dissolved ions were also analysed to round off the characterisation. Finally, the characteristics of such liquid effluent were compared to urine collected directly from animals without contact with faeces.
