A 1000-pound horse produces up to 50 pounds of wet manure each day or nearly 10 tons of manure each year. With most of this being deposited in the stall, your horse lives in an environment filled with bacteria, virus, mold, and mildew. Horse owners have long sought ways to help reduce or eliminate urine in an eco-friendly manner.
What is Envirostall?
Our team has engaged in ground-breaking research resulting in Envirostall, the first and only full-service system capable of providing your horses with clean, healthy stalls while addressing and reducing environmental issues in the equine industry. Our patented system uses bioremediation to remove contaminants from horse stalls and prevents these contaminants from being released into the environment.
Bioremediation uses ecologically safe micro-organisms to degrade harmful contaminants and turn them into environmentally safe by-products. Envirostall also can mitigate bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew, and rid your stalls of rodents and the problems they cause.
No other product on the market provides the long-term solution to the challenges that face horse owners in keeping their stalls sanitary and their horses healthy. Envirostall is Next Level Living for Horses that allows you to spend more time enjoying your horses instead of working for them.
What Envirostall Is Not
Envirostall is a system that cleans urine out of horse stalls to provide a clean, healthy stall for your horse, and prevent contaminants from entering the ecosystem. It does this by draining the urine out of the stall and into a storage area where bioremediation cleans the contaminants from the urine. The bioremediation turns the urine into clean water, which then drains into the soil without contaminating the ecosystem.
Envirostall is not a water mitigation system. Stalls must have proper drainage before installing the Envirostall system. However, if your farm has drainage problems or runoff contaminating the ecosystem, Envirostall, LLC has other patented methods to solve your drainage problem while bioremediating your farm to meet local runoff requirements.

How It Works
Envirostall’s multi-layered, patented system uses bioremediation to clean and neutralize urine contaminants from horse stalls. Envirostall absorbs horse urine through our Envirofilter, a one- piece layer of water permeable, geotextile material that filters horse urine and other impurities out of the stall and into the Envirostall system. The urine then continues through our Enviromat, an anti-fatigue layer of matting that provides a comfortable surface for your horse. This layer greatly reduces stress on your horse’s joints and the potential for hock sores.
The urine then settles in a layer of Envirolyte, a stone aggregate capable of absorbing 120 percent of its body weight in urine. Our EPA-approved, proprietary microbes are released into the Envirolyte where millions of these microbes digest the impurities changing them into water and harmless gases.
The water then flows back into the soil as clean water per EPA groundwater protocols. As long as you keep a horse in the stall, these tiny bugs will thrive and multiply. They will continually work to clean and neutralize impurities from your stalls.
With Envirostall, your stalls are virtually pristine reducing the health risks to your horses and you. You can have confidence in knowing that your stalls are sanitary and your stable is the healthiest environment possible for your horses.

Envirostall: Saving Our Environment
A problem facing the equine industry, and agriculture in general, is how to minimize the emission of nitrous oxide (N2O) into the earth’s atmosphere. Nitrous oxide is a potent and long- lived greenhouse gas. Although a small component of the earth’s atmosphere, nitrous oxide is nearly 300 times more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide. In addition, nitrous oxide stays in the atmosphere for over a century.
Most nitrous oxide is produced by naturally occurring micro-organisms acting on nitrogen introduced to the soil via livestock urine. By removing the impurities from horse urine before it enters the ecosystem, Envirostall prevents nitrogen, phosphates, carbon, and other chemicals from being released into the environment. This reduces the production of nitrous oxide and the impact of this greenhouse gas on the earth’s atmosphere. The system also minimizes hydrocarbon gases, controls odor, and prevents pollution from organic waste, including antibiotics, chemicals, and pathogens that enter the soil through untreated dissemination of horse urine.
