Enzymatical and chemcial recovery of phosphorus
The Fraunhofer IGB is developing biocatalytic processes for the mineralization of organic phosphates contained in agricultural residues. In this way, they can be recovered as high-quality fertilizer.
Stabilization trough drying, torrefaction or carbonization
In the production, preparation and processing of solids, drying is usually an essential process step. Drying processes are used, for example, to stabilize the shape of granulates, pellets or powders.
Torrefaction aims to increase the mass-related energy density and thus the calorific value of the raw material. It also increases the transport and storage capability of the raw material.
In hydrothermal carbonisation, the biomass from agricultural waste is converted into fuels and thus made usable for bioenergy production independent of location.
