The innovative Nijhuis Ammonia Recovery system has won the ‘Making the most of Digestate’ award at the 2015 Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas Industry Awards. The prestigious event celebrated the industry’s triumphs over the past 12 months, acknowledging the greatest contributors from a range of different sectors; including food & drink, farming, utilities and waste management.

The Nijhuis Ammonium Recovery System was recognised as an efficient and competitive treatment system for treating digestate or substrates from digestion with a very stable ammonium removal efficiency of more than 80%. This technology has been jointly developed by Nijhuis with leading poultry processing company Bernard Matthews and Holton Renewable Energy Ltd to address the fast growing demand to maximise the value out of digestate and to turn their (waste)water facility into a resource efficient solution.

Upon receiving the award, Brian Scheffe, Head of Anaerobic Digestion and Industrial Effluent at Nijhuis H2OK, commented: “Nijhuis H2OK are extremely pleased to have been recognised by the UK AD&Biogas for making the most of digestate. Our game changing Nijhuis Ammonia Recovery system is an excellent example of the continuing innovations of Nijhuis Industries within the waste to value marketplace”.

The award follows the success story of the Nijhuis AecomixTM solution which was launched at the AD&Biogas exhibition last year, winning the Process Efficiency/Optimisation category.

ADBA’s Chief Executive, Charlotte Morton, commented: “I’m very pleased to congratulate Nijhuis H2OK on their success in the UK AD & Biogas Industry Awards 2015. Ultimately, as pressure on natural resources increases, realising the value of nutrients in food waste will only become more important - we need to support and promote the use of digestate as a replacement for artificial fertilisers, and continue to develop higher value products.”
