Poultry manure based bioactivator for better soil management through bioremediation
As an overall objective, the proposed project intends to DEMONSTRATE the efficiency of applying innovative- and low-cost effective technologies for restoration of soils low organic matter soil, also in semiarid areas.

the efficiency of applying innovative- and low-cost effective technologies for restoration of soils low organic matter soil, also in semiarid areas.
Particularly, we aim to demonstrate the applicability of poultry manure, treated according to EP 1314710*, for soil restoration/ bioremediation, avoid degradation, fix C in the soil, put P as struvite and increase biological quality (edafic fertility), in terms of bulk density and aggregates, N content, total biodiversity and plant yield.
Actions and means to achieve the objectives are organized as follow:
Implementation actions (B) encompass actions to enable transferability and replicability by means of technical courses to public administration and professionals and guidelines to support the identification and the "know-how" to implement the suitable technique in each case.
in order to obtain the POREM bioactivator for field application. Process parameters will be “handled” according to process characteristics: the heaps will be ripen for different time to fully monitor the degree of homogeneity of the ripening and final product “quality.
Monitoring actions (C) include different methodologies to measure the environmental, social and economic impacts of the project. The main monitoring activities related to Objectives 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5:
final quality bioactivator and enzymatic profile will be performed
physical, microbiological and new OMI Cs methodologies (CEBAS, ENEA, EPS). Crop productivity will be monitored by ASTRA.
To demonstrate the applicability of a treatment to obtain from poultry manure an organic fertilizer bio-activator with reduced odor impact (80% NH3 emission in comparison with fresh ones), reduced salinity (<5 dS/m), 40% P contained in struvite compound
