Nitrogen and phosphorous compounds from agricultural and urban areas are major responsible for water quality degradation in many EU and Enlargement countries. Agriculture accounts for about 55% and 25% of, respectively, nitrogen and phosphorus total loads entering untreated our seas, while discharges from point sources account for 25 % and 60% of the nitrogen and phosphorus loads.
The goal of the QSAFFE is to provide the European Union with a framework for improving the quality and safety of animal feeds and feed ingredients entering ports from outside the EU as well as those produced within Europe.
The Network aims at "…bringing together practitioners from industry, research, academia as well as civil society. The Network will collect, analyse and review results from exploration projects as well as assess the development of technologies used in unconventional gas and oil projects".
