Pilot plant to convert AD waste into high-quality fertilizers (Spain)


The Basque Institute for Agricultural Research and Development, Neiker-Tecnalia, and the Guipuzkoa-based company Ekonek will be building a pilot plant to treat organic waste destined for producing high, added value fertilizers. The facility will enable the organic material resulting from biogas plants to be effectively put to use. The plant will be located on Neiker-Tecnalia’s agricultural land in Arkaute (Álava, Basque Country) in northern Spain. The budget of EUR 1.5 million ($1.96 million) will be provided by the European Union within the framework of a CIP-Ecoinnovation project, and four organisations will be participating in the initiative: Neiker-Tecnalia, Ekonek Innovation in Product Upgrading, Blue Agro, and the Dutch company Colsen.
