New bio-based fertilisers from organic waste upcycling

Project description

Training researchers to produce bio-based fertilisers

Rapid increases in food production will be needed to feed the world’s population – expected to rise from 7.7 billion people to 9.7 billion by 2050. This involves direct investment in agriculture. Just as important is the development of a circular bioeconomy to improve resource efficiency and contribute to a more sustainable farming sector. It is also important to move away from mineral-based fertilisers as these depend on the import of phosphate rock, a limited resource. The EU-funded FertiCycle project will train 15 early stage researchers to develop new processes for the production of bio-based fertilisers. They will generate, integrate and apply inter-disciplinary knowledge to develop new technical solutions for bio-based fertiliser production, management and marketing.
