ricion reference projects

ricion has a remarkable number of reference projects in most areas of the ricioncore. The wastewater recycling systems in particular have been proving their efficiency and reliability for over 25 years in some cases.

Project planning, planning and construction projects (national + international):

  • Several hundred nature-based wastewater treatment plants (municipal, commercial and industrial)
  • Project studies and planning of large-scale “Terra Preta plants”
  • Project planning and implementation of large-scale fermentation residue treatment “G2H”, Groß-Gerau
  • Project studies + planning OASE21: EQP-Pfaffenhofen, new development area Gensingen and Riegel

Collaboration in joint research projects:

  • BMBF joint research project “Zero-emission communities”
  • BMBF joint research project “LaTerra”
  • INTERREG project “EMISURE”: Project planning, construction + operation of a field test facility for the elimination of micropollutants (Echternach, Lux.)
  • Ongoing joint research projects: CoMinTreat, WOW, AgroBaLa, Greywater-use
  • (University of Luxembourg, University of Cottbus-Senftenberg and others)

St. Alban municipal sewage plant

Largest municipal constructed wetland in Germany, designed for around 2,500 PE including mixed water treatment, sewage sludge humification stage, largely external energy-free operation (commissioned in 2004)

Innovative digestate processing ricionG2H at
the Groß-Gerau Wallerstädten climate campus

In 2023, Stadtwerke Groß-Gerau’s biogas plant was equipped with an innovative ricionG2H plant for treating and utilizing the liquid fermentation residues. Together with biochar from the docked carbonization plant, this produces high-quality ricionterra-based products in four treatment stages. The ricionG2H plant was funded by the German government’s National Climate Protection Initiative due to its demonstrable GHG reduction performance.

Die ricionoase21 in Riegel am Kaiserstuhl

In Riegel, a pioneering residential and commercial area is being developed for the first time in Germany, in which the core themes of a blue-green infrastructure in line with the ricionoase21 approach are being implemented. This includes the “sponge city principle”, the separate collection and treatment of grey and black water, a grey water recycling plant with a useful water plant greenhouse and an energy center with carbonization, a local heating network and Terra Preta production.
