January 16, 2015, Hollidaysburg, PA — McLanahan Corporation announced recently that its Nutrient Separation System was selected by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) as a winner of an AE50 award.
The Nutrient Separation System was developed by McLanahan as a safer, simpler and smarter way for dairy producers to manage their manure, by separating nutrients and producing clean water. As a recipient of an AE50 award, this system has been deemed one of the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products or systems for the food and agricultural industries.
“We are very pleased and honored to have received this award,” said Sean McLanahan, CEO of McLanahan Corporation. “Our Agricultural Systems team worked hard developing a solution to help dairy producers better handle their manure, and the Nutrient Separation System has numerous benefits to our customers. We are very excited about its potential for the industry.”
Companies from around the world submit entries for the annual AE50 competition, which selects up to 50 products. Winners are selected by a panel of international engineering experts based on which entries will best advance engineering for the food and agricultural industries. The awards program is sponsored by ASBE’s Resource magazine to emphasize the role of new products and systems in bringing advanced technology to the marketplace.
