The demonstration pilot plant of EU project ManureEcoMine is already in operation and we’ll be shown during an open day activity.
Coordinated by Uninersity of Ghent and funded under the EC VII Framework Program, ManureEcoMine proposes an integrated approach to the treatment and reuse of animal husbandry waste, by applying the eco-innovative principles of sustainability, resource recovery and energy efficiency. Anaerobic digestion, ammonia stripping, struvite precipitation and partial nitritation/anammox will be key technologies that will be combined to demonstrate their technological and environmental potential at pilot scale for cow and pig manure. LEQUIA contribution is focused on phosphorous recovery as struvite and k-struvite.
During the event, the attendees will visit the ManureEcoMine pilot installation for a resource-efficient manure processing. The open days will take place in Van Alphen BV (Axel, The Netherlands) on Friday, April 17th from 14:30 to 18:30 and Saturday, April 18th from 9:00 to 12:30.
