The European Commission developed the Results Pack on Fertilisers highlights 13 EU-funded research projects that can help alleviate the pressures placed on farmers and consumers, through the innovative synthesis, use and recapture of fertilisers and improved nutrient management.
The 13 projects in this Results Pack on Fertilisers cover a range of approaches. Several examine how manure can be efficiently recycled as fertiliser, others look at how to produce fertilisers from alternative sources, such as digestate, bacteria mining, algae and wastewater from slaughterhouses and farms.
Tackling the existing nutrient flow gaps in Europe to help decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, reducing soil degradation and making the EU more energy- and nutrient-independent, Nutri2Cycle is also featured in the publication.
