Betafert is digestate from the mono-fermenter which was built by SuikerUnie’s factory in Dinteloord. Fermentation is a process in which organic matter is broken down by bacteria to biogas for example. This process generates heat and a liquid fertilizer remains. The fermenter in Dinteloord processes mainly organic products that remain after the production of sugar. Examples of this are beet pulp, beet leafs, beet ends etc. So no animal fertilizer is used.
The digestate that remains after the fermentation process is a high quality organic fertilizer with directly absorbable nutrients. Two products are offered under the name ‘Betafert’.
‘Betafert Basis’ is a crude liquid digestate which is available directly after fermentation. This product is separated in a thin and a thick fraction. The thick fraction is a stackable product and is called ‘Betafert vast’.
