SYSTEMIC releases final policy note

As is now well recognised, recovering and reusing nutrients from biowaste is a crucial component of a biobased circular economy and will contribute to Europe’s transition to a carbon neutral economy, can support the decoupling of economic growth from resource use, and help restore biodiversity and cut pollution. However, the full potential of nutrient recovery […]

Updated flow diagrams for the demostration plants

Each of the SYSTEMIC demonstration plants have chosen a different technological system for nutrient recovery.  The system chosen depends on the end products the plant wants, and wishes to sell, and the biowaste they are processing.  To see a clear updated visual of the plants, thier technology and the system flow, have a look at […]

Living labs meeting a Groot Zevert demo plant

The H2020 project SYSTEMIC organised a Living Lab meeting and site visits to demonstration plant Groot Zevert Vergisting (GZV, Netherlands) and Benas (Germany). Highlight of the two-day visit was the new paper moulding machine at BENAS were organic fibres from digestate are turned into cardboard products. At the first day, the group of representatives of […]

Lessons learnt from five large-scale demonstration plants

Five large biogas plants participating in SYSTEMIC  project as demonstration plants, have constructed innovative nutrient recovery and recycling (NRR) installations and developed new business cases over the course of the project. The five biogas plants convert biowaste, animal manure and sewage sludge into valuable organic and mineral fertilising products. Though they each operate under unique […]

Can the inclusion of nutrient recovery in the EU ETS scheme support its growth?

Five large biogas plants participating in SYSTEMIC[1], have installed and successfully demonstrated anaerobic digestion with full scale technical nutrient recovery and recycling. Several digestate derived N fertilisers show nutrient use efficiencies equivalent to synthetic N fertilisers and are compliant with proposed “RENURE[2]” (“REcovered Nitrogen from manure”) criteria – for animal by-product-derived fertilising products. However, revenues […]
