Bluetector has successfully commissioned a pilot plant for the treatment of manure at a farm in Greven, Germany. The plant treats up to 25 tons of manure daily; the liquid nitrogen is continuously converted almost completely into atmospheric nitrogen. The University of Applied Sciences of Munster is accompanying the pilot plant scientifically. Bluetector will operate the pilot plant during 6 months in order to find new clients in Germany for its manure treatment system.
The BlueBox Ultra has been specially developed for the biological treatment of manure and fermentation residues and works the same way as a municipal wastewater treatment plant. In the bioreactor of the BlueBox Ultra, the manure is converted into water, which contains only traces of nitrogen and phosphorus and is therefore ideally suited for irrigation. Since nitrogen and phosphorus are almost completely removed, only very small surfaces are required for application. The BlueBox Ultra eliminates the need for expensive and environmentally harmful manure transports, where manure sometimes has to be transported over hundreds of miles.
Bluetector is an agritech company that has developed a novel, low-cost biological purification process for manure and fermentation residues. Bluetector was founded in 2012 by David Din, a serial entrepreneur in the field of wastewater treatment. Bluetector AG is a privately owned company based in Technopark Lucerne in Switzerland.
