BIOFARM Agri-Research station for Phosphorus recovery, biomass valorization, renewable energy, and innovative agricultural biotechnology demonstration and training.
Operational field: from advanced applied science to economical scale up and industrialization of pyrolysis, solid state fermentation, agribiotech and synfuel technologies.
3R-BioPhosphate Ltd. is the owner of the fully permitted industrial site in West Hungary at Biofarm Agri Research Station (Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/wHxmZ7J1ChJ2 ). This BIOFARM industrial site is dedicated to innovative and advanced agricultural, environmental and industrial technology field demonstrations for preparation of scale up operations and training of the applied RTD results the field of renewable energy, biomass valorisation, which is a transfer station from science into industry. BIOFARM site combines applied science, industrial engineering and practice.
The Biofarm facility is providing a unique testing and demonstration facility for agricultural applied research and demonstration actions in 30 ha area to scale-up innovative agro-ecological and organic practices. Objective: conversion of innovative science into market competitive industrial practice. The Biofarm is Authority permitted demo site for TRL7-TRL8-TRL9 actions.
The specific works include zero emission pyrolysis technology (carbonization, torrefaction) and biomass added value utilization processes, with commercial objective driven production of innovative natural BioPhosphate recovered organic fertilizer products. The field demonstration of the advanced 3R design and innovative technology is bridge over practical science with clear industrial application orientation, engineered scale up design development and economical commercialization. The 3R site installation and operations are Authority permitted, including official Authority permit for specific BioPhosphate production and application for open ecological soil environment use.
The main units of the BIOFARM facility:
- Full equipped agro biotech laboratory installation is specialized for fungus with any biotech operations and capacity up to 150 litre fermentation capacity.
- Pyrolysis centre: different scales of pyrolysis equipment developed for material treatability and equipment/method product like testing.
- Agri training, international conference and webinar centre for 125 visitors to combine theoretical presentations with practical on-site show up to convert theory into practice. The conference centre is also prepared to make live broadcasting in multiple languages, in case of digital connection is considered safer.
