LIFE CHIMERA to deliver a new Manure-to-fertilizer plant: take the online consultation survey!

LIFE CHIMERA – CHIcken Manure Exploitation and RevaluAtion is conducting an online expert consultation survey to collect expertise and valuable viewpoints from the cross-connected sectors of agriculture, fertilizer producers, waste-to-energy and relevant authorities.

The general objective of the LIFE CHIMERA project is to set-up a biomass pilot plant able to demonstrate a sustainable technology for the total deployment of chicken manure produced at farmers own premises and turn it into BIO-fertilizer. In fact, the breakthrough concerns (i) an innovative biomass technology, able to burn manure, produce energy and release an N-P-K rich fertilizer (ii) and a plant concept thought for distributed applications, empowering the farmers or small districts to turn a cost for disposal into a sustainable business. The plant adopters’ benefits are:
  • Saving thermal energy (farm or district size),
  • Saving electrical energy (farm or district size),
  • Producing BIO fertilizer from manure (for own use and/or sale),
  • Tackling problems related to disposal, transport and emissions of manure
The project intends to contribute to the achievement of European air quality and emissions targets, through the reduction of ammonia and PM emissions from agriculture.
Furthermore, the projects will implement the circular economy concept, fostering the local use of bio-resources. To achieve these targets, the project involves an emerging Italian SMEs, 3P-Engineering, and a pioneering Dutch Farm, Renders & Renders, as end-user willing to test and co-invest into the technology as early-adopter.


With this on-line survey we ask 5 minutes of your time as we would like to understand your characteristics, like interest, attitude, influence and knowledge relevant for the project.
