The Swiss agri-tech company Bluetector has been accepted as a new member of the Bavarian Environmental Cluster. The members benefit from the strong network of the environmental cluster.
„The Bavarian market with its many farmers and biogas plants is extremely important for us,“ explains David Din, founder and CEO of Bluetector. „For this reason, membership in the Bavarian Environmental Cluster is of strategic importance to us.“ Already next year the first Bluetector plants for the treatment of manure and fermentation residues are to be installed and put into operation in Bavaria. „Our membership in the Bavarian Environmental Cluster brings us nearer to our customers. It is important for us to be in close contact with our customers,“ continues David Din.
The company’s product, the BlueBox Ultra, is ideally suited for the biological treatment of manure and fermentation residues. In the bioreactor of the BlueBox Ultra, the manure is converted into water, which contains only traces of nitrogen and phosphorus and is therefore optimal for irrigation. As nitrogen and phosphorus are almost completely removed, only very small areas are needed for spreading. The BlueBox Ultra eliminates the need for expensive and environmentally harmful manure transports, where manure sometimes has to be transported over hundreds of kilometres.
Alfred Mayr, Managing Director of the Bavarian Environmental Cluster, is delighted about Bluetector’s membership and is convinced that the cooperation will have a positive effect on both institutions – for example through the cluster working group „Decentralised Wastewater Treatment“. The cluster working group has set itself the goal of being a platform for exchange with reference to the Bavarian region and beyond, to establish contact between companies, science, politics and authorities and to promote a cross-state exchange of information.
