Project Title

Establishment of an exemplary on-farm nutrient cycle management system in a dairy cattle and biogas feed farm.

Project description

The use of a stationary slurry treatment plant, for which practical experience is available to a limited extent in other European countries, is to be investigated under the conditions of a larger Saxon dairy farm with connected biogas plant with regard to its economic, production-related and environmental effects. A biogas digestate treatment plant with an annual capacity of 63,000 t will be built and commissioned. The plant is to separate 54% of the input material as cleaned, prefloodable and/or infiltrationable water and process the remainder to high-quality organic fertilizer. This, separated into liquid and solid phases, will be stored at the plant's operational site and applied to the farm's agricultural land for fertilization.  The application and effect of the fertilizer materials will be investigated and evaluated.
