A Life Cycle Analysis has been conducted to compare the production of fertilizers using the WAVALUE PROCESS from digestate, with the production of conventional mineral fertilizers.

1000 kg Wavalue fertilizer 800 kg Conventional Mineral fertilizer
12-12-12 with 17% organics 15-15-15

The results indicate that the WAVALUE fertilizer from digestate has less than 50% of the global warming impact than the equivalent mineral fertilizer produces. This result is the same for other indexes like acidification, human toxicity, abiotic resources, or Eco-Indicator 99.
