November 2017: Power-to-Protein pilot moved to SWTP Horstermeer (Amsterdam)

Both the Power-to-Protein Pilot and the Nijhuis Ammonia Recovery (NAR) pilot have been moved to the SWTP Horstermeer of Waternet. After start-up of the pilots in week 44, the focus in the next months will be on the production of larger amounts of microbial proteins. The aim is to produce at least 30 kg so that it is possible to perform all necessary tests concerning the digestibility and allergenicity of the product.

With the ammonium sulphate produced from the digestate at SWTP Enschede enough kilograms were produced to analyse first characteristics of the products such as amino acid sequence, non protein N-content, P-content and mineral content.
