Development of novel bio-organic fertilisers

This project aims to optimise the on-site ammonia capture performance of modified lignite in order to reduce nitrogen loss and air pollution, by collaborating with Exergen and partners in China.

Aerated static pile composting systems will be developed to generate carbon-based organic fertiliser using modified lignite, straw, livestock manure and thermophilic microorganisms.
