Far too good for the bin

Processing of waste. The RedUnit industrial grinder for the feed industry

There is waste in almost every production area. This is also the case with the production of bread. In large bakeries and supermarkets there are tons of bread every day that have to be sorted out for various reasons. However, this waste contains many valuable raw materials and is far too good “for the bin.”

Working from home during the pandemic: Digital work environment at Vogelsang

T he coronavirus pandemic has forced society and the economy to retool, and has set pro cesses in motion that were previously only hesitantly initiated. This is also demon strated by digital progress, which was pro ceeding rather sluggishly until the rapid spread of the virus, which is now driving it strongly forward. Vogelsang has been dealing with digitiza tion in the company for several years and has already implemented numerous measures. Software tools support the processes in sales, production and design.

A clear yes to the dribble bar system

Why Dirk and Hubert Schulze Roberg opted for Vogelsang dribble bar technology in response to the German law on fertilizers

On agricultural plants, the German law on fertilizers is making itself more evident than ever. In order to protect waters, vegetation and the environment, specifications on the spreading of liquid manure are
becoming increasingly stringent. Longer blocking periods are creating an increased demand for spreading technology since more work needs to be carried out in a shorter time.

Water 4.0

The digital revolution of waste water systems and its advantages

It’s known in Germany as “Industrie 4.0,” in France as “Industrie du future” and in the USA as the “Internet of Things (IoT).” Almost everyone has heard at least one of these buzzwords by now, and has a more or less accurate idea of what the fourth industrial revolution entails: Following on from mechanization, mass production and automation, we are now seeing an extensive computerization of production sequences and processes. The basis for this development is formed by structured, automated communication between people, machines, systems and logistics. The result will be a largely self-organized and flexible system that covers the entire value chain.

Mineral fertilizer is a scarce commodity - this is the alternative

Germany is currently suffering from circumstances that are difficult to predict as far as future gas supplies are concerned. Private households fear power outages and industry is also suffering from the unpredictable situation. Consequently, gas prices are rising sharply, which is why mineral fertilizer production is becoming increasingly expensive. Due to the current situation, some fertilizer producers are even closing their factories. How can farmers and companies deal with the current mineral fertilizer crisis and why does liquid manure play a key role? We look at the sustainable solution of near-ground spreading technology and your opportunities for the future.

Partnership for plant optimization - manure in, profitability rises

Partnership for plant optimization: In Nohra, Vogelsang and Biocraft Nohra are working with partners from industry and research on the “FlexPump” project – a mixing concept for the flexible, efficiency-optimized and multifeedstock- capable operation of biogas plants.

Successfully marketing worthless items. Colloquially in German, one also likes to say: “Making money from sh**.” In Grammetal, they take this literally – and quite successfully, actually. There, animal excrement is
economically converted into energy in the biogas plant of Biocraft Nohra. The trigger for the change in the operating concept was rather unpleasant: the neighboring industrial company, which used the entire heat of the plant, closed its doors. They had to come up with something new. Now, their efforts have been impressively successful and, in addition, added value has been created for the environment and for regional farms.

Liquid feeding - technology and benefits

Liquid feeding of your biogas plant - technology and benefits

A biogas plant provides an efficient, economical and sustainable method of generating energy. A particularly important aspect of the biogas plant is the digester feeding; this is decisive for the gas yield. But how does solid matter feeding suitable for bacteria work? The potential of “liquid feeding” is a widely discussed method in this context.

Using a state-of-the-art Vogelsang solid matter feeder, it is possible to prepare and mix solids with a liquid component in a particularly advantageous way. This treatment enables you to increase your gas yield and reduce your energy costs. How does this work and what technology can help you? Let’s take a closer look!
