Renewable fertiliser from air

Overview

Description

N2 Applied has developed a patented technology that enables farmers to produce their own fertiliser using only livestock slurry, air and electricity. This disruptive and unique solution is a processing unit, that can upgrade organic waste to an efficient fertiliser, by adding nitrogen straight from the air. For farmers, this enables production of fertiliser locally on the farm only using renewable inputs, creating a more circular farm system and improving resource efficiency. The technology involves a revolutionary plasma technology that increases the nitrogen level in livestock slurry or other organic waste. The process reduces the climate emissions; carbon dioxide and methane, as well as reduces odour. The result is a sustainable food production with ~30% lower climate emissions, that provides 40% increased yield. The reaction also stops harmful ammonia emissions from livestock slurry which consequently reduces air pollution, by around 50%
