for exploration and inspiration on technologies for nutrient recovery
Online calculation tool for
cost-benefit analysis of technologies
mass-and nutrient balance estimation
for nutrient recovery from digestate
The NUTRICAS Tool description document contains the most recent description of the calculation models and assumptions that are used in the web-based NUTRICAS Tool.
The Excel version of the NUTRICAS Tool contains the basic calculation models of mass balances for the cascades implemented in the web-based Tool. It provides users with a bit more flexibility to test out mass balances, but as an Excel-file has limited user-friendliness.
WEBINAR ON THE USE OF POLYMERS FOR OPTIMIZATION OF DIGESTATE SEPARATION
Technical webinar training on separation of digestate and the use of flocculants organized in the framework of the SYSTEMIC project (22 april 2021).
During the “Corona-year” of 2020, the SYSTEMIC biogas plants were invited to weekly online meetings, where different technologies for digestate treatment were discussed with their peers, technology providers and scientists.
This excel file contains
the composition of different types of digestate, manure and other feedstocks
separation efficiency of liquid-solid separation technologies for digestate
recovery rates for NH3 stripping-scrubbing, evaporation, drying, membrane filtration, ...
The performance or efficiency of the technology is expressed as the recovery rate. This is defined as the fraction of the initial amount of mass, dry matter, organic matter, nutrients, or minerals (N, P, K) that is recovered in the end product.
In the excel, it is found under the blue rows “Recovery rate or separation efficiency (%)”.
Read all details on the mass balances, energy balances and drivers for nutrient recycling of the 5 Demo Plants in this report.
Per technology, estimations are given for
surface area, investment costs and operational costs, use of chemicals, energy requirements, separation efficiency and recovery rate,...
