Event description

Description

Nutrient recovery and reuse from organic residues, such a manure, sewage sludge and food waste has been recognized as a crucial component of the European Union’s Circular Economy Strategy. At the moment, nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus are lost along the entire food chain. Closing the nutrient cycles can boost the bio-economy efforts in the EU and provide societal benefits.


This year, the Biorefine Cluster Europe and the Systemic consortium joined forces to promote the importance of nutrient recycling.

Great strides are being made in the development of technology to enable nutrients to be recovered at biogas plants, but the financial viability of nutrient recovery remains a major stumbling block to its expansion. On 22 April, the Systemic workshop will discuss how to develop an enabling framework to boost the development of this sector. You will hear how the new Green Deal will impact NRR in Europe; how to encourage investment in NRR technology; how energy prices can support the financial viability of NRR, and how to build acceptance amongst farmers and consumers for the recovered nutrients.

On 23 April, the second edition of the ESNI conference (European Sustainable Nutrient Initiative) will offer you a comprehensive overview on the benefits of nutrient recycling to boost agriculture, novel food production and sustainable development. Policy-makers, researchers, industry representatives and many other stakeholders will discuss how to raise awareness on the benefits of nutrient recycling and reuse (NRR). Parallel sessions will be dedicated to policy measures, innovative solutions and technological developments on nutrient recycling.

Both events will take place at the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium (FEB) in Brussels.
Do not miss the opportunity to attend these events aimed to put nutrient recycling high on the EU circular economy agenda!

Details on the programs will come soon..
