In the MicroNOD study innovative organic fertilizers, based on bacteria, are produced. The microbial organic fertilizers are slow-release fertilizers and consist of aerobic heterotrophic bacteria, purple bacteria and spirulina. In addition, these fertilizers are sustainable, because they are produced on waste streams. During the project, the performance is already shown for a number of crops.

During the seminar the main project results are presented and demonstration material is shown throughout the chain: upgrading of waste streams (e.g. struvite), production of the microbial organic fertilizers and the current tomato and grass tests.

MicroNOD aims for systemic innovation, by strong interaction with the social actors. This project is carried out by 5 key partners (Avecom, AgrAqua, Greenyard, University of Ghent and University of Antwerp) and supported by several civil society organizations and companies (VCM, OVAM, Innovatiesteunpunt, Pinguin, Agristo, Vlakwa en AVBS). The project receives financial support from MIP/i-Cleantech Flanders.
