Aurelian Biotech Launches a Biohacking Solution for Slurries

Aurelian Biotech has patented its new product Biaurelian. The concept of ‘biohacking’, as explained by Aurelian Biotech, comes from the words ‘biology’ and ‘hacking’, and is a practice whose purpose is to bring science closer to the public and now to the agricultural sector, creating an accessible version of technology to solve old problems from new approaches.



The startup has registered in Europe the patent for the natural additive Biaurelian based on 20 natural aluminosilicates (silica 90%, aluminum, iron and magnesium 6%, trace elements 4%) capable of trapping and inerting elements harmful to health, and encapsulating them in their silicic framework. It also eliminates greenhouse gases, unwanted odors, as well as ammoniacal nitrogens or phosphates, in addition to bio-stimulating the microbial flora to accelerate the natural process, of recovering the biotic environment.

“Biaurelian’s solution is integrated into a customized biohacking service for each farm to ensure results based on its climate, breed, and feed,” said Felix Navarro, CEO of Aurelian Biotech, at the product presentation.

Environmental improvements of Biaurelian

The Spanish pig herd exceeds 35 million pigs (livestock places), ahead of France, Germany, and the Netherlands. This leads to a high incidence of CO2-eq derived from a slurry, which can be reduced by biohacking by 80% treated at the time of the excrement, as is the case with pet litter (analogism).

Biaurelian’s biohacking service designs the doses individually for each farm, which is applied selectively in ponds, strawss or under a grid. Just a few kilograms act as a catalyst. The approximate cost starts from 0.30 euros per pig slaughtered.

In addition, the treated farms receive the certificate of treatment and dosage valid for the control of the environmental management system required by European regulations for some years now.

The concept of ‘biohacking’, as explained by Aurelian Biotech, comes from the words ‘biology’ and ‘hacking’, and is a practice whose purpose is to bring science closer to the public and now to the agricultural sector, creating an accessible version of technology to solve old problems from new approaches.

Among the environmental improvements provided by Biaurelian are these five:

End of unwanted odors. Biosilica applied in slurry makes odors disappear immediately and lastingly, reducing greenhouse gases on the farm by 85%, as well as ammonia nitrates so harmful to nature.
Decontamination of aquifers. Nitrates and phosphates are integrated into the silicon cells through its ion exchange network and adsorption of pollutant molecules.

Gas reduction in biomass plants. Biaurelian separates the liquid phase from the solid phase, without mechanical means, so that slurry drying reduces the use of gas by 65%, thus making slurry biomass plants viable.

It makes biomethane viable. Slurry treated with this natural additive can be used for biomethane production, with improvements of 40% more gas due to the absence of ammonia nitrates in its anaerobic biogas generation process.

Eliminates eutrophication. The great natural adsorption capacity of Biaurelian allows the decontamination of surface water (e.g. Mar Menor). Groundwater can also be denitrified without further intervention, allowing the biota to return to its natural state, prior to contamination, quickly, immediately and at a low cost.
