NutriCycle

The recuperation and valorization of nutrients from manure and digestate and their reuse as a green alternative to chemical fertilizers

Period: 

01/2012 to 03/2015

Budget: 

€695 560.61

The NutriCycle project investigates the recuperation and valorization of nutrients from manure and digestate and their reuse as a green alternative to chemical fertilizers. It fits thus into the Cradle to Cradle philosophy: waste as a secondary resource. As such, the project wants to contribute to a sustainable development of industrial livestock farming and anaerobic digestion as renewable (energy) technologies in Flanders. The current consortium of business and research partners has a unique composition as it brings together agriculture (Innova Energy), constructors and suppliers (Waterleau, Kemira), consultancies (DLV), knowledge centers (UGent, VITO), applied research center (Inagro) and local authorities (VCM).
