modelling ammonia manure treatment simulation air purification
Project description

The aim of this project is to address manure treatment in such a way that, with a minimal energy input, both biomass and water can be valorized from the manure, while simultaneously purifying the outgoing air to a large extent. Through this concept, energy positive manure treatment can be realized in practice.
