Presentation of an innovative pilot plant for manure

BioEcoSim ProjectAround 1800 million tonnes of manure are produced in Europe every year. In regions with intensive animal husbandry, this could cause environmental, social and economic challenges.


An impasse?

In the EU-funded project BioEcoSIM led by Fraunhofer IGB, 15 partners from research and industry developed a technology to convert livestock manure into organic soil improvers and mineral fertilisers. The overall process uses energy-efficient technologies and works on the principle of circular economy. The technology prototype is capable of processing 50 kg of raw manure per hour into fertilizers and organic soil improvers. The products obtained have excellent quality as fertilizers and can then be mixed to match the nutritional requirements of any crop.


The problem turns into a market perspective!

The project consortium will present its results and the pilot plant on 14th June 2016 in Kupferzell (Germany) at the installations of one of the project partners, Agro Energie GmbH.


On behalf of the BioEcoSIM consortiums, we would like to kindly invite you herewith to be among the first visitors of this innovative pilot plant.


Next to the presentation and visit of the prototype, there will be expert presentations and workshops allowing mutual experience exchanges between different interest group representatives from the agro economic sector.

The detailed program can be found attached as well as on the Internet




We hope that we could awaken your interest for this event and are looking forward to welcoming you in Kupferzell soon.


Participation in the event will be free of charge. As the number of attendees is limited, however, we politely ask you to register by following this registration link:
