Open Demonstration Event by BIOECOSIM

Around 1800 million tonnes of manure are produced in Europe every year. In regions with intensive animal husbandry, this could cause environmental, social and economic challenges.

An impasse?
In the EU-funded project BioEcoSIM led by Fraunhofer IGB, 15 partners from research and industry developed a technology to convert livestock manure into organic soil improvers and mineral fertilisers. The overall process uses energy-efficient technologies and works on the principle of circular economy. The technology prototype is capable of processing 50 kg of raw manure per hour into fertilizers and organic soil improvers. The products obtained have excellent quality as fertilizers and can then be mixed to match the nutritional requirements of any crop.

The problem turns into a market perspective!
The project consortium will present its results and the pilot plant on 14th June 2016 in Kupferzell (Germany) at the installations of one of the project partners, Agro Energie GmbH.
Ateknea would like to encourage you to visit this innovative pilot plant. Next to the presentation and visit of the prototype, there will be expert presentations and workshops allowing mutual experience exchanges between different interest group representatives from the agro economic sector.

Vinbot on Horizon Magazine!

Europe’s warming climate is affecting wine stability.

With warmer winters and drier summers, climate change might even be having an effect on your favourite bottle of wine.

Winemakers are already witnessing changes. In France, the Burgundy region had its driest July in 66 years in 2015, while Italian producers are planting different grape varieties due to more intense summers.

Horizon Magazine know about that problem and made a special mention to our project Vinbot, las week in his online publication. The article indicated how Vinbot helps our winegrower to get a greater control of his vineyards, and how it improve the accuracy of measurements with an all-terrain, autonomous rover that scans the leaves of the vineyard with greater accuracy.
