Business-P: Phosphate-recovery from renewable raw materials (press cake / grist)

Acronym: Business-P

Timespan: 1.2018 – 12.2021

Phosphate is a finite resource of outstanding economic and social importance, which is widely used in a variety of products (e.g. fertiliser, detergent additive, preservative, emulsifier, corrosion / flame retardant). So far, there are no sustainability concepts that allow effective recovery / recycling of phosphate. One possibility for the recovery of phosphate is the use of crop waste. The aim of the Business-P project is to answer the questions whether, at what cost and in which valorisation products (e.g . for organic farming, including the patent landscape), phosphate extraction from press cake or grist is economically viable. If successful, the project Business-P is a showcase project for the potential of an integrated bioeconomy to establish new value chains / networks between industries (chemistry / biotechnology), agriculture and oil mills in NRW based on renewable resources. In case of success, Business-P contributes to the further development of the bio-based economy in terms of a circular bioeconomy.

The TIM Chair group contributes to the Business-P project through its work in WP 2.1-2.3 by addressing the following research questions:


AG Bröring

WP 2.1: “Technology-Market Matching“:

  • Investigation of the patent landscape, IPC analyses, time series
  • Identification of possible technical fields of application
  • Exploration of the market requirements for polyphosphates in the various fields of application by means of expert discussions
  • Initial legal evaluation (questions of regulatory approval, labelling) in different fields of application

WP 2.2: “Value Chain and Business Modell Mapping“:  

  • Identification of value-added partnerships and mapping / development of new value chains with high valorisation potential and generation of business models for alternative value chains

WP 2.3: Segment selection and market entry strategy“:

  • Derivation of evaluation criteria (including profitability, legal assessment, market entry barriers, acceptance, price willingness)
  • Evaluation of different market applications and possible value chains on the basis of a newly developed criteria set and scoring model
  • Development of suitable market entry strategies and business models for the selected segments
