Biofertilizer + biogas Three new biofertilizer-biogas facilities will be built in the Zachodniopomorskie region of Poland. The plants are being built by Ductor Oy (Helsinki, Finland; www.ductor.com), a Finnish-Swiss biotechnology company funded by Esperotia Investments Ltd. The plants will use 100% poultry waste to create two separate products, renewable electricity and organic nitrogen fertilizer. This will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from both the energy and agriculture sectors. Two of the new plants will have installed capacity of 0.5 MW and the third will be 1 MW. All three will be operational in 2021. The three facilities will use 50,000 tons, or about 1% of the total poultry manure produced in Poland each year. Ductor currently has similar projects underway, including five to ten new facilities in Poland and a solid portfolio of projects under development in Europe and the Americas. The system was patented in 2015, and the first operational biofertilizer-biogas facilities opened at the end of last year in Mexico.
