Summary

Processing of animal manure is considered as an opportunity to reduce the pressure on the manure market in the Netherlands. One of the options is to separate the slurry and to use the mineral concentrate, that is produced from the liquid phase by reverse osmosis, as a substitute for mineral fertilizer. Against this background the pilot mineral concentrates was started to study the agricultural, economic and environmental effects of the production and use of mineral concentrates. Within the framework of this pilot in 2009 and 2010 the participating manure processing plants were monitored.
