The total project is focused on the issue of increasing sieve residues resulting from an enhanced pollution with foreign matters in biowaste fermentation and composting plants. The approach is to analyze existing disposal and recovery channels of sieve residues from biowaste in accordance with ecological, technical and legal aspects. Practice-appropriate recommendations for an optimized recovery are developed.
One objective of the project is a comprehensive status quo analysis of the disposal/recovery of sieve residues from biowaste in Germany. Appropriate recovery options will be analyzed in accordance with ecological, technical and legal aspects. Furthermore alternative and innovative recovery options will be tested. These recovery options will be evaluated with respect to their ecologic relevance as well as their impact on climate and resources.
