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.
