Biosolids treatment system for transformation of industrial organic wastes into sustainable and efficient fertilizer with zero emissions

Project description

Producing fertilisers from organic waste treatment

The volume of organic waste generated by agribusiness, livestock farms, forestry activities and urban areas is constantly growing. The EU has developed recycling for organic waste that is transformed in organomineral fertilisers, but such management is not entirely effective, resulting in significant loses of potential organic materials and nutrients. Existing recycling methods used in the fertiliser industry employ chemical additives and have high energy consumption. The EU-funded BTSys project proposes an environment-friendly system of industrial organic waste treatment and recycling. It produces highly effective organomineral fertiliser with zero carbon emissions and without contamination of soil and water. The project intends to establish an in-house laboratory for testing and perfecting the fertiliser and to develop its marketing strategy.
