This database includes data from 76 value chains derived from six secondary raw materials: treated manure, digestate, sewage sludge, wastewater, bio waste, and biological byproduct.

  1. Technology maturity and readiness level.
  2. Output material (product)
  3. Processing conditions proved the effectiveness of converting crude input material into safe, high-quality fertilising products.
  4. Available CAPEX and OPEX: production costs.
  5. Available legal status (regional/national/EU).

The following primary categories were analyzed: (i) thermochemical nutrient recovery, (ii) P precipitation, (iii) physical-chemical nitrogen recovery (iv) biological nutrient recovery methods such as composting and anaerobic digestion. You can browse all accessible data by scrolling from top to bottom (by products and technologies) or left to right (through all various parameters). You can filter the products, technology, and/or secondary raw materials by using the top drop-down menu. . This database provides an extensive portrayal of the current state of the art for several alternative fertiliser products while revealing knowledge gaps that require attention for the advancement of their utilisation. The overview will be available for all stakeholders to assess.
