project duration
01-JAN-06 – 31-DEC-07
For the European Commission under the 6th Framework Programme on Research, Technological Development and Demonstration a project called PIGMAN is executed. In the project the pig manure will be digested in addition with other organic waste products. The digestate is converted into irrigation water after removal of P as struvite (ANPHOS process) and N as nitrogen gas (OLAND process). Beside the researches there will be carried out benchscale tests at farmers sites in five different countries. One large pilotplant will be designed and built in Cyprus.
