More information on the two site visits (Groot Zevert and Terramass) is given below.

1) Groot-Zevert, Beltrum, NL (https://www.groot-zevert.nl/vergisting/biogasproductie/)

GZV

Groot Zevert produces biogas from manure. A part of the biogas is used for electricity production for on-site use, but the majority of the biogas goes through a gas pipe to a plant of FrieslandCampina in Borculo, where it is uses instead of natural gas.

Combined with the biodigester, the first Dutch ‘Green Minerals Central’ is in use. Groot Zevert offers an economically and environmentally sustainable solution to the manure surplus. Pig slurry is processed in such way that only the surplus of available minerals is recovered from the manure in a mineral form.

2) Terramass, Odiliapeel, NL
terra mass

Terramass produces a nutrient rich fertilizer pellet.

The manure is collected in a region of about 15 km from the manure treatment installation of Terramass in Odiliapeel. The manure is stored in silos. From these silos, the produced biogas is collected and used to produce electricity using a steam generator. The electricity is used on the manure treatment installation and the surplus is injected on the net.

An organic fertilizing pellet is produced by separating the manure in a thin and thick fraction. The thick fraction is dried and pelletized. The thin fraction is evaporated, resulting in a potassium concentrate, which can be added during the drying process to the thick fraction. The evaporated water is then treated with an ammonia stripping-scrubber to recover the ammonia and dischargeable water. The NPK ratio’s can be adjusted according to the wishes of the consumer.
