Our Concept

The award-winning FlashPhos process is a high temperature fast reacting (flash) entrained flow gasification of sewage sludge and other phosphate-containing waste streams such as meat-and-bone meal. The inorganic waste components are melted or evaporated and are then separated in a refiner reactor to produce recycled P4 as the main product. Other output materials of the process are a climate-friendly alternative cement raw material, an iron alloy and a heavy metal concentrate as valuable outputs for the metal industry. The organic components serve as fuel for the gasification, in which they are converted into heat and a combustible gas. This gas and excess heat can be used in cement plants to substitute fossil fuels. Consequently, several valuable raw materials will be generated by the innovative and cost-efficient FlashPhos process with practically no emissions or waste.

During the four-year innovation action, the industrial FlashPhos process will be demonstrated in a pilot plant with up to 250 kg/h sewage sludge throughput. The first full-scale FlashPhos pilot plant in Europe will be built by 2025 and industrial scale white phosphorus production will start together with an industrial consortium, expecting market introduction by 2028.

📢 Today, the first @FlashPhos Review Meeting took place remotely. All 17 project partners participated in the meeting & shared with the Project Officer from the #EC & an external expert the project activities that have been carried out over the first 18 project months.

📌 In @FlashPhos, Buss-SMS-Canzler-GmbH constructs the pilot dryer, also called dryer-grinder. From this pilot dryer, fine and dry #sewagesludge will be delivered for #pilotplant tests of the #FlashPhos process 👉 http://bit.ly/3CL7Ff7

👥Meet #FlashPhos partner Buss-SMS-Canzler GmbH, number 1 in thin film evaporation technology and global leader in drying and high viscosity technology👉 http://bit.ly/3CL7Ff7. SMS has comprehensive experience and knowledge in operating #pilotplants and in #sewagesludge drying.

♻️ Led by @Uni_Stuttgart, #EUProject #FlashPhos aims to close gaps in the #circulareconomy, returning all output mass & energy flows to the industrial cycle, thus contributing to #resourceefficiency, #energysavings & #wastereduction.
