DEMONSTRATION PLANTS

At five large-scale demonstration plants, SYSTEMIC demonstrates new approaches for the valorisation of bio waste into green energy, fertilisers and organic soil improvers.

Existing biogas plants located in different EU-counties will be enhanced with nutrient recovery technologies to act as pioneers and play an important role in the evaluation of the technical, economic and environmental performance of the newly proposed circular solutions.
