Research and Development

AGRO-EKO Ltd. since 1999 until now has invested the sum of tens of millions crowns from its own resources into research and development projects. Our company plans such investments to further development of new technologies and technological processes in the processing and energy use of bio-degradable waste also in the future. The research and development of our own technologies is also made in ​​follow-up activities.

AGRO-EKO Ltd. established a long-term cooperation with these institutions:
The National Institute of Public Health Praha 
IET, VSB - Technical University of Ostrava
T. G. Masaryk Water Research Institute
Research Institute for Fodder Crops
Mendel University Brno

Research of high-dry matter anaerobic co-digestion of organic fraction from municipal waste with other bio waste, and development of semi-continual container bio-gas station with system of overlaying the fill.

Project of programme EPSILON TH01030513 (2015-2017)

Research of innovative products from process of aerobic fermentation of biomass and biowaste for protection and creation of soils in arid regions. Innovation of aerobic fermentor EWA for using in very hot and dry regions.

Project GESHER/MOST 2013-2015, Czech-Israeli government project; cooperation with Israeli company ArrowEcology

Common project (program Gesher/Most) of two technological companies from Israel and Czech republic was implement in 2013-2015. Both companies own patented technology. Israeli company ArrowEcology owns patent - hydromechanical separation and multi-level anaerobic fermentation of municipal waste. ArrowEcology is currently a supplier of sorting lines for municipal waste together with bio gas stations.

Czech company AGRO-EKO Ltd. owns patent for bio waste hygienization and is also a producer of aerobic fermentors EWA in which it is possible to hygienize almost every type of bio waste and make compost or biofuel from them. Biogas station waste (digestate) was the main material for AGRO-EKO's technology to treat and produce compost or biofuel. Both companies are ambitious in worldwide production. 

Project goals:

- to establish preparation of the fill based on digeastate and other agricultural bio waste for compost production according to EU regulations.

- to produced compost registrated according to EU regulations or certificate the compost for energetic use according to EU regulations

- to innovate EWA for material of high specific mass and make new software for fermenation process

- to discuss the application of compost in arid regions in Israel and other regions of Asia, Africa and Europe

Czech part results with technology certification, registration of biofuel and compost according to EU regulations and software updates.

Research, development and verification of the technology of heating up the pyrolysis reactor by the produced gas and its utilization for power generation in the cogeneration unit.

Program project at MIT R&D FR-TI1/409, 2009-2011.Pyrolysis reactor is a compact All-In-One device (4 reactions take place in one particular area: heating, gas conversion, splitting and the formation of water gas). Production technology delivers energy use from bio-waste, biomass and other traditional fuels by refining on the electrical energy while minimizing the impact on the environment. The technology can be applied especially to producers of biological waste and biomass, such as cities, municipalities, farmers and forest managers.

Research of the methods, process methods of controlled aerobic thermophilic fermentation.

Project of the Ministry of Environment, Water Research Institute TGM, Prague, 2002-2005.

Research and development of the technology of combined processing of biomass, sludge from wastewater treatment plants and other organic wastes into coke with the characteristics of active coal and coke gas.

MIT Program Project IMPULS FI-IM/37, 2004-06/2007.

The result: a prototype of the gasification device.

Research on solid product generated by gasification of biodegradable wastes and its use in the production of construction, thermal insulating systems.

WMO Program - A program to support innovative activities of small and medium enterprises, research and development, 2006.

The result: The processing technology of gasification ash in special insulation blocks

Research on the conditions and possibilities for using low-potential heat generated by the aerobic fermentation of biodegradable waste and the development of a management system for the group usage of the fermenters.

Project of MIT - Sustainable prosperity program 2A-1TP1/086, 2006-2007.

The result: The solution of placing two or more fermenters EWA and material flow

Research, development and verification of the technology of processing the bio-degradable waste in large-area aerobic fermenters BEWA.

Program project at MIT R&D FR-TI1/411, 2009-2011.BEWA device is designed for processing large bio-degradable waste producers with over 10 000 tons per year (municipalities, pulp producers, etc.). The utilization of waste heat originally boosts the final drying process of compost, biofuel respectively. In the EU there is currently no large-scale equipment for such processing of all the types of bio-degradable waste by the aerobic fermentation. BEWA device will be able to process all organic waste types of the European Waste Catalogue under the standards and sanitation temperatures.
