Profitability

In this project, cost-effectiveness of using digestate fertilizers from the farmers’ perspective are assessed. The main target is to assess what are the preconditions for the price compared to other competing fertilizers such as mineral fertilizers and manure.

At the same time, economic restrictions for digestate processing from biogas plants perspective are revealed. We assess 3-4 cases, where the current fertilizer use is compared to recycled fertilizers produced in this project. These cases could be organic cattle farms and traditional crop cultivation farm where organic farm uses concentrate (and replaces unprocessed digestate) and traditional farm uses phosphorous rich struvite (replacing mineral phosphorous).
