The LIFE RE-Fertilize project started in mid-2019 with the overall goal to demonstrate a new removal and recovery process for nitrogen, producing a nitrogen product suitable for fertilisers. The project was closed in December 2022.
In the project, a demonstration plant for the process has been built, and the process has been demonstrated in an operational environment with a removal rate of >95% of the ammonium nitrogen. The produced ammonium sulphate has been evaluated and its agronomic effect is proven. A conceptual design has been conducted within the project, as well as establishing a business case, business model, and business plan for commercialising the process and product.
The RE-Fertilize project was financed by the EU LIFE programme. Project number LIFE18 ENV/SE/000265.
