Poultry manure based bioactivator for better soil management through bioremediation

Poultry manure based bioactivator for better soil management through bioremediation

An estimated 45% of European soils are potentially subjected to degradation: new strategies for improving soils quality are necessary.

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.

Why Us

The proposed project intends

the efficiency of applying innovative- and low-cost effective technologies for restoration of soils low organic matter soil, also in semiarid areas.

Project objectives

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 involved

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.

Production of  POREM bioactivator

Production of POREM bioactivator

- Different heaps (pilot production) in Italy, in Spain and then in Czech Republic will be set up,

- Different heaps (pilot production) in Italy, in Spain and then in Czech Republic will be set up,

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:

- VAP composition, sanitization,

- VAP composition, sanitization,

final quality bioactivator and enzymatic profile will be performed

Soils restoration (microclima) will be monitored by chemical,

Soils restoration (microclima) will be monitored by chemical,

physical, microbiological and new OMI Cs methodologies (CEBAS, ENEA, EPS). Crop productivity will be monitored by ASTRA.

The specific POREM technical results will be

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
