Funding source: Ministry of Infrastructure and Agriculture, European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD)

The object of the project is the residue-based biogas production and high-quality recycling of nutrients in the form of fermentation products in organic farming in Thuringia.
Economically viable and environmentally optimized utilization concepts for a residue-based nutrient cycle with biogas production are being developed in cooperation with organic agricultural and food farms, operators of biogas plants (BGA) and agricultural and energy industry consultants. The focus is on multifunctional and multistage utilization concepts that can include the generation of renewable energy, waste heat utilization, technical processing of biogas, and fertilizer production. Depending on the farm's orientation and regional market potential, it is examined whether biogas technology can be used to set up and economically operate energy- and heat-intensive plants for the (pre-)processing and marketing of agricultural raw materials.
