Growing the German phosphate industry

Part 1 of this article will highlight a scientific study on the long-term bioavailability of the nutrients in different phosphorus fertilizers. Part 2 will provide a report on the first German production plant and present a research project in the Frankfurt Rhine-Main area. Jan Kirchhof, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH, Germany, reports on a laboratory experiment with phosphorus fertilizers and two current projects.

Precision Landing with Special Plant Engineering

Dr.-Ing. Viktor Drescher, Business Development and Product Manager Thermal Powder Synthesis, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH: “Plant concepts must be oriented to the customer, not the other way around”

Glatt, the plant manufacturer and process expert, accompanies users along the entire value chain – from the initial idea through feasibility studies and process development right through to the to the construction of the production facility. Novel plant concepts are are increasingly in demand. (Article in German language)

Closing the Loop – Phosphorus Recovery on an Industrial Scale

The first fertilizers produced using the PHOS4green process have been available on the German market since June. The technology, which breaks down the phosphorus contained in sewage sludge ash and makes it reavailable in marketable end products, was developed by plant engineering and process expert Glatt Ingenieurtechnik in cooperation with fertilizer specialist Seraplant.
