Transition towards a more carbon and nutrient efficient agriculture
in Europe

The Nutri2Cycle project will be running from 2018 to 2022. It will provide an essential contribution to the circular economy by closing nutrient loops.

European agriculture is still characterized by a high overall contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and inefficient recovery of carbon and re-use of major plant nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus). The Nutri2Cycle project will assess the current Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Carbon (C) flows looking into existing management techniques in different farms across Europe and analysing their related environmental problems.

Tackling the existing nutrient flow gaps in Europe will help decrease greenhouse gas emissions, reduce soil degradation and improve EU independence for energy and nutrients.
