Glatt PHOS4green at the IFAT 2022

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik is exhibiting for the first time at IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for environmental technologies in Munich. The company will showcase its patented PHOS4green technology to recover phosphorus from sewage sludge ash and convert it directly into ready-to-use phosphate or compound fertilizers. On booth A4.509, visitors will be able to learn more about this innovative approach that’s already being successfully used at an industrial scale.

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.

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.

Meet the Glatt experts at the abonocare® online conference

At the 2nd Conference of abonocare® – sustainable nutrient recycling from organic residues Dr. Michael Jacob will give a lecture on ‘Fertilizer production from N- and P-rich recyclates using fluid bed spray granulation’. He will show product examples and present an industrial-scale reference plant at Seraplant in Haldensleben, Germany.

Glatt PHOS4green: first production plant for fertilizer from sewage sludge in operation at Seraplant

Production starts at first German PHOS4green plant for recycled fertilizers. Residue-free production of ready-to-use fertilizer from phosphate-containing sewage sludge ash is now possible, thanks to plant manufacturer and process expert Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, and fertilizer specialist Seraplant. The official commissioning on May 31, 2021, was attended by Prof Dr Armin Willingmann, Saxony-Anhalt’s Minister for Economics, Science and Digitalization.

PHOS4green to be presented at the Sewage Sludge Meeting in Sweden, June, 2-3 2021

Save the date to get the lesson!
Sewage sludge treatment and recycling is also an important topic for Swedish municipalities.
Under the organization of Envisys AB, a technical meeting on sewage sludge will be held in Helsingborg, Sweden. Jan Kirchhof, Senior Sales Manager Process & Plant Engineering, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH, will inform about a PHOS4green plant for the production of fertilizer from sewage sludge ash.

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik celebrates continued business success with third expansion of its Technology Center

New services, capacities, employees: plant engineering expert Glatt Ingenieurtechnik marks its 30th anniversary with an investment in the future of its headquarters

From vitamins in animal feed and enzymes in detergents to powder materials for high-performance batteries, Glatt, the Germany-based plant manufacturer and process expert, is working on all of these in close cooperation with renowned research companies. In spring 2021, Glatt will expand its technology center in Weimar for the third time in twelve years.

Jan Kirchhof, Senior Sales Manager Process & Plant Engineering, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH, will inform about a PHOS4green plant for the production of fertilizer from sewage sludge ash. At the Haldensleben site in Germany a project for an industrial-scale production plant is already being implemented. The location, the products to be manufactured and their recipes as well as the envisaged production capacities determine the economic efficiency.

PHOS4green sets signals in the circular economy

Now the first plant is about to be commissioned and Glatt’s process is being used as part of a BMBF joint project in the Rhine-Main region. (article in German language)
