For 30 years Absorbent Products Ltd. (APL) has mined and manufactured Zeolite, Food-Grade Diatomaceous Earth and Bentonite products. We manufacture anti-caking agents, chemical-free insecticides and natural solutions for poultry and other livestock producers.

At our core, we value community, promote open communication throughout our organization, and foster strong, long-lasting relationships with our customers and stakeholders.

DIATOMACEOUS EARTH
Diatomaceous Earth (often referred to as DE) is a siliceous rock, formed from fossilized exoskeletons of microscopic freshwater, hard-shelled algae known as diatoms. This mineral is found in deposits throughout the world, but formed with different qualities.

APL has two DE mines. Our mine in British Columbia, Canada is a naturally occurring mineral deposit of DE and Calcium Bentonite. Our newly acquired mine in Oregon is a pure, all white freshwater Diatomaceous Earth mineral source.

The only acidifier for Organic and Conventional Broiler Houses

Activated Barn Fresh® Poultry Litter Ammonia Control

Activated Barn Fresh
  • Accumulating better results
  • Unlike other acidifiers, Activated Barn Fresh never stops working
  • The only acidifer powered by Diatomaceous Earth
  • More and more poultry companies are making the decision to eliminate all synthetic and dangerous products from their houses. Activated Barn Fresh® (ABF) is the natural choice.
  • ABF utilizes a unique blend of non-GMO Citric Acid and Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth to control ammonia by reducing the moisture and pH of poultry litter.
  • As with others, our citric acidifier will burn off over time. Unlike others, however, once the acidifier has burned off, the residual effects of the remaining Diatomaceous Earth and Calcium Bentonite will continue to absorb moisture and suppress ammonia when litter comes in contact with it.
  • Many issues arise because of moisture in the house.  ABF will continue to help keep things dry.
  • Safe – no harsh acids or chemicals. Safe to handle and no freight restrictions.
  • Harsh acids in other products can eat away at machinery and structures.  ABF  will not.
