On November 17, 2016, the winners in the competition for the 2016 Saxony-Anhalt Environmental Alliance Award were announced and awarded prizes at the festive event at the Federal Environment Agency in Dessau.
We were awarded first prize in the "Concepts and Projects" category for our "FaserPlus" digestate processing system. The prize was presented by the acting state environment minister Prof. Dr. Claudia Dalbert.
The Saxony-Anhalt Environmental Alliance was established in 1999 as a voluntary agreement between the state government and industry. The alliance is under the patronage of the Minister President of Saxony-Anhalt.
On December 15, 2014, we received the 3rd Research and Innovation Award from Saxony-Anhalt in the resource efficiency category for the development of our process for digestate treatment. The process enables biogas plant operators to remove nitrogen from digestate without adding chemicals and produce mineral fertilizer. This reduces ammonia emissions from biogas plants and digestate and prevents nitrate pollution of groundwater.
