Pioneering new tech to recover 100% phosphorus and biocrude from manure and sludge

(Aarhus University) Danish researcher granted DKK 11.2 million ERC Starting Grant from the prestigious EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (Horizon 2020) to develop a pioneering new technology that could completely revolutionize waste management. The project will treat manure and sludge using hydrothermal liquefaction in a continuous flow to extract 100% phosphorus and carbon in the form of ‘bio-crude’ — which can be refined e.g. into aviation fuel.
