This technology aims to improve current management of sludge after dewatering by developing a hydrolysis process which will lead to the production of a novel biofertilizer.
Biofertilizer plant will include a 200-300 litres bioreactor where sludge will be subjected to an enzymatic hydrolysis process to break down the non-digested protein fraction, leading to a more accessible nitrogen (N) source for crops. This process will allow to obtain a biofertilizer with better agronomic properties compared with the direct application of sludge.
