The eleven outreach locations were selected from a larger group of interested plants. The non-selected AD plants were offered the possibility to remain connected to SYSTEMIC as a ‘Associated plant’.
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.
SYSTEMIC receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation under Grant Agreement no. 730400
