RESULTS

The DIGESMART project offers the solution of digestate valorization, contributing to reduce inorganic fertilizer amounts through recycling of nutrients (N-P-K) of digestate in an environmentally friendly way.

The main expected results are:

01  
REGULATORY CONTEXT AND COSTS


 
To bring to light the relevant issues from the regulatory context and costs that could influence the uptake of the DIGESMART solution in participating and targeted countries: Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain.
     

02  
MARKET IMPLEMENTATION

 
First market implementation through installation, testing and validation at farm level of the DIGESMART solution (pilot plant of digestate treatment): a low-cost solution to produce green fertilizers with technologies for nutrient recovery from digestate (centrifuge, stripping and solar drying).
     

03  
FIELD TRIALS RESULTS

 
Field trials results from green fertilizers application: agronomic value (N, P, K, among others), crop yield response and optimal use of green fertilizers adapted to geographical and meteorological differences between northern and southern countries.
     

04  
LIFE CYCLE
 

Life Cycle Analysis study of the DIGESMART solution.
     

05  
BUSINESS PLAN


 
Development of a business plan to replicate the DIGESMART solution in the participating and targeted countries.
