100 nutrient recovery technologies and novel fertiliser products
Fertilisation and nutrients management
Promising novel phosphorus and nitrogen recovery technologies and fertilising products are currently being demonstrated to farmers across Europe through NUTRIMAN, Horizon 2020 Thematic Network. “New nutrient recovery technologies and innovative fertilisers are crucial for our safe food production and supply security” states Edward Someus, project coordinator. He explains “NUTRIMAN is providing practical information during online and field demos, improving their use by farmers.”
Partners in NUTRIMAN have created an overview of all available European market-ready innovative technologies and products which are ready to be commercialised. User-friendly and practice-oriented information on more than 100 new solutions for nutrient recovery in different languages have been published for farmers and others working on this topic. There is an online web Farmer Platform and they have held over 50 field demos and workshops across Europe. The share of practical information in the NUTRIMAN thematic network will inform farmers about these innovative solutions which are offering improved food safety for a lower cost.
NUTRIMAN ensures that when the new EU 1009/2019 Fertilising Products Regulation law harmonization reaches implementation status in 2022, the agricultural practitioners already know, have tried and are applying such recovered products in practice.
in a world with finite resources there is no infinite development opportunity with sustainability."
