What does the Jan Terlouw Innovation Award 2021 entail?
In addition to the great honor of the award itself, CCS Energie-advies wins a check for €10,000. “The prize helps us in our mission and the technical support for reducing nitrogen deposition,” says René Cornelissen.
What does the Bio-NP do?
The Bio-NP nitrogen stripper is a technical installation that extracts the nitrogen from animal manure and fixes it in a bio-fertilizer. This means that the nitrogen from the animal manure no longer escapes into the air from storage or during spreading on the land. This reduces nitrogen losses and eutrophication emissions by 70%. In this way, the Bio-NP contributes significantly to the reduction of nitrogen deposition.
