New Technology Prevents Animal Waste Odors

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

New technology will soon be available to help protect the health and well-being of your pets and your livestock, and it's expected to hit store shelves next week.

Bozeman based EcoPlanet Environmental has spent years working to develop a product that prevents odors escaping from animal waste.

And now they have a product treating and preventing ammonia production.

EcoPlanet president Brian Philips said several generations of his family have had this idea, and now it's coming to life.

"Originally my grandfather had an idea to develop a better portable toilet," said Philips.

"Cloe" Cat Litter Odor Eliminator and "Barnyard" Bedding Odor are formulated by recreating fungi found to eliminate odors.

Philips said that is what makes this technology unique.

"It preserves the compounds and so on that would normally break down and doesn't allow ammonia to be produced," said Philips.

Philips said you scatter the product under livestock bedding or cat litter as you are cleaning their stall or litter box.

"You can put this product in a clean environment and it will prevent those odors from forming," said Philips. "It doesn't cover up or hide odors that already exist."

EcoPlanet is launching their product at another Bozeman based business, Murdock's Ranch and Home Supply store.

Both odor eliminators will be on store shelves beginning next week.

More stores are scheduled to sell the product by the end of the year.

Philips said they are in the process of developing a similar product to be used on human waste, but details on that product are still being worked out because it is in the initial stages of development.
