Glatt Phosphorus Recovery at the IFAT 2022

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik is exhibiting for the first time at IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for environmental technologies in Munich. The company will showcase its patented PHOS4green technology to recover phosphorus from sewage sludge ash and convert it directly into ready-to-use phosphate or compound fertilizers. On booth A4.509, visitors will be able to learn more about this innovative approach that’s already being successfully used at an industrial scale.

Specialists worldwide are currently conducting intensive research into concepts that can close the material cycle for phosphorus. One result of this research is Glatt’s two-stage PHOS4green technology, which breaks down this essential raw material from sewage sludge ash and then converts it residual-free into instantly usable fertilizer granules.

The technique has successfully been implemented at an industrial production plant in Haldensleben since May 2021. Here, a fluid bed spray granulation plant runs in continuous mode and is capable of handling up to 60,000 metric tons of phosphate-containing straight and compound fertilizers per year.


Website provides comprehensive information

On its dedicated PHOS4green microsite, Glatt provides comprehensive information about the technology and possible applications. The website also provides information about current research projects as well as options for heavy metal depletion from ash.

Technical papers published on the subject, as well as references to events and platforms where experts can be contacted, complete the digital offering. Readers will discover that several studies have confirmed the plant efficacy of various PHOS4green fertilizers compared with commercial ones.


Glatt’s presence at IFAT provides the ideal setting to meet the team behind the process and learn more about this innovative technology.
