Leo Rösel from the Upper Palatinate, operator of a NatUrgas® plant, is Germany’s best young farmer
This year’s “Young Farmer of the Year” comes from the Upper Palatinate: Leo Rösel from Neukirchen near Sulzbach-Rosenberg has been presented with the Ceres Award. The jury described him as a “role model of his generation”.
Following the STEP research project, we want to focus even more on alternative feedstocks. Therefore, we are researching the treatment and combined use of straw and grain feedstock mixtures for a biogas technology chain with a future.
Research was conducted on the utilization of straw-based energy pellets and poultry manure in biogas plants with heat-autonomous digestate upgrading by means of evaporation — funded by the BMWI.
