It is essential to understand what kind of fertilizers are to be produced and to adjust processing technologies accordingly. Well-adjusted processing technologies are not sufficent to guarantee the market penetration, as the products need to meet the needs of the end-users as well.

Producers of fertilizers need to be well aware on end-users’ perceptions and needs, restrictions connected spreading machinery and requirements of plants to be fertilized.

In this project farmers, biogas producers are brought together to discuss what kind of recycled fertilizers are needed and how to respond to this need. In this project, fertilizers processed from digestate are demonstrated. In collaboration cooperation, examples of resource-efficient, technically feasible, cost-efficient and environmentally reasonable processing chains are created.

Project group shares Finnish knowledge and good practices from the EU and Finland. Also European experiences are shared in Finland. This project advances the target of transforming Finland as a forerunner in nutrient recycling.
