Fraunhofer IGBIGB rgb

Fraunhofer IGB develops and optimizes processes and products for the business areas of medicine, pharmacy, chemistry, the environment and energy. One of the key research areas of Fraunhofer IGB is the development and implementation of cost-efficient strategies and technologies for the integrated resource management of nutrients from wastewater and organic waste.

In recent years, innovative technologies have been developed and demonstrated at laboratory, pilot and industrial scale to recover mineral fertilizers and soil improvers from municipal sewage sludge, livestock manure, digestate from biogas plants and food industry residues. This includes the chemical-free process ePHOS® (presented at IFAT 2016) for phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge and BioEcoSIM for manure valorization.

Fraunhofer IGB believes that ESPP offer them a great opportunity to connect with new stakeholders, to strengthen existing partnerships, and help them promote sustainable phosphorus management at the European level.
