The SYSTEMIC video is now subtitled in Dutch, German, and Italian. Producing renewable energy and nutrients from waste can be a viable business and strengthen our circular economy – the SYSTEMIC project works to show how this can become reality across Europe.
This author has yet to write their bio.Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud SYSTEMIC contributed a whooping 59 entries.

The SYSTEMIC infographic is now available in Dutch, English, German, and Italian. Find out how recovering nutrients from biowaste and re-using them on croplands can contribute to the transition of agriculture to a circular economy.
Watch this short video to find out how Groot Zevert Vergisting, the Netherlands – one of SYSTEMIC’s five demonstration plants – uses an injector that has been specifically designed and constructed for application of NK-concentrate to process animal manure into biobased fertiliser. This new installation was commissioned by the plant due to the inadequacy of […]
Join the open day at the SYSTEMIC project’s demonstration biogas plant BENAS in Ottersberg, Germany on 13 July 2019. The open day will feature small tours of 20 people guided by the plant operator or engineers from the technology supplier GNS in German. An English site visit can be organised on demand – if interested, […]
The SYSTEMIC project has published an open-access article on ‘Production and performance of bio-based mineral fertilisers from agricultural waste using ammonia (stripping-)scrubbing technology’ in the Waste Management Journal (April 2019). Read the abstract below. Development and optimisation of nutrient-recovery technologies for agricultural waste is on the rise, however their full-scale adoption is hindered by complex […]
Groot Zevert Vergisting B.V. (GZV), SYSTEMIC’s demonstration plant in the Netherlands (Beltrum, Achterhoek), has commissioned a new installation and started producing liquid NK-concentrates (nitrogen + potassium) from the liquid fraction of co-digested pig slurry. The product is further blended with ammonium sulphate and/or ammonia water which are recovered at other nutrient-recovery plants to meet the […]
Atria is one of the leading food companies in the Nordic countries, Russia and the Baltic region. The group is divided into four business areas: Atria Finland; Atria Scandinavia; Atria Russia; and Atria Baltic. Atria Finland develops, manufactures and markets 100% Finnish fresh meat and other foodstuffs, and provides related services. It is the market […]
What is the Living Lab approach? The SYSTEMIC project’s vision for Anaerobic Digester (AD) plants is for them to become catalysts for the valorisation of biowaste, in a context of multiple technologies recovering nutrients, organic matter and water from digestate being implemented. The five SYSTEMIC demonstration plants have already proven that this is possible. The […]
The current biosphere framework The Green Revolution, starting in the 1950s, has produced food and feed for over 7 billion humans now living on the planet. This can be considered a success story, albeit it did not happen without consequences. Today, there is ample evidence that the massive extraction, conversion and use of resources has […]
Disposing of digestate represents an important cost for organic waste-treatment plants. Each year, the SYSTEMIC demonstration plant AM Power generates 160 kt of digestate and strives to treat it in a cost-effective, efficient and relatively simple way, without a loss of nutrients. The plant has developed a technological solution for the recovery of nutrients into […]
Biowaste, animal manure, sewage sludge and food and feed waste, form the most abundant waste stream in Europe and hence, the most prominent potential resource for the production of biogas and the recovery and recycling of mineral nutrients like phosphorus (P), nitrogen (N) and potassium (K), thereby reducing Europe’s dependency on external and non-renewable P reserves and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from N fertilizer production.
