Circular Economy examples
Manure treatment facility ‘Groot Zevert’ is producing their first green mineral fertilizer with the Nijhuis GENIUS installation
Nijhuis GENIUS consists of a combination of smart technologies, such as a digester (AECOMIXTM-TAURUS), a GEA decanter, flotation technology (Nijhuis DAF), nitrogen stripper (Nijhuis AECO-NAR) and a membrane filtration plant. Depending on the clients and regulatory requirements, a combination of technologies are selected to secure the lowest possible CAPEX and OPEX, maximizing the sustainable PROFIT.
GENIUS is a sustainable process because no by products and no waste products will be produced. It is an energy positive solution in combination with digestion and reduces the CO2 footprint due to lower production of chemical fertilizers and reduction in manure or digestate transport. The produced organic rich phosphate fraction, liquid nitrogen fertilizer and the liquid potassium fertilizer can reduce the import of artificial fertilizers for pasture land or arable crops as well as reducing the export of surplus manure.
