Recycled phosphorus as feed phosphate
In January 2021, a new project was started to test the precipitated calcium phosphate (PCP) recovered from our Ash2Phos technology. The project is a collaboration between EasyMining, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Lantmännen and it is hoped to show that recovered calcium phosphate from sludge ash has the same level of phosphorus digestibility as conventional MCP (monocalcium phosphate).
The main aim of the project is to test the digestibility of the PCP in pigs and poultry. Therefore one digestibility study with pigs and one with poultry will be performed and the digestibility of PCP will be compared to digestibility values of monocalcium phosphate that is a commonly used phosphorus source today.
The project, founded by Lantmännens foundation and Ragn-Sells (of which EasyMining is part of) started at the beginning of 2021 and is planned to run for almost 2 years, ending in the last quarter of 2022.
