Kosteneffectieve oplossing voor fosfaatprobleem met Nederlandse vleesvarkensmest: Toepassing van MERIT-model

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


Dutch finishing pigs produce around 24.0 million kg of phosphate in their manure, whereas only 10.8 million kg can be applied in the Netherlands in 2018. Calculations with the MERIT model show that lowering the phosphor content in the pig feed is economically not interesting to solve this problem. Processing the manure is economically interesting, with the most promising techniques granulating the manure and granulating the thick fraction after separation the manure with a decanting centrifuge. This is under the assumption that the price of the granulate is determined by their mineral content
