Drying and sanitizing biomass sludge in order to produce fertilizer.

Especially in regions with high numbers of livestock, it is crucial to reduce nutrient loads coming into the environment. For example, technical solutions are being sought for binding excess nutrients in the form of fertilizers so that they can be transferred to regions with corresponding nutrient requirements.

In a cooperation project with THiEL GmbH – Fördertechnik, of Löningen, a robust procedure for the processing of nutrient-rich biomass was developed at the Münster University of Applied Sciences, which produces a marketable and hygienically flawless fertilizer. The project focused on experiments with fermentation residues from biogas plants and dry poultry manure.
