Capture, recycling and societal management of phosphorus in the environment

Project description

Innovative techniques for phosphorus management

Existing agricultural practices overexploit and waste the earth’s phosphorus (P) reserves. This results in large flows of P into surface waters, damaging ecosystems. Since these practices use valuable P resources and pollute the environment, the EU has issued a circular Economy Action Plan that aims to move towards a circular P economy. This requires new interdisciplinary collaborations that will radically shape P governance, introducing new P management solutions. The EU-funded RecaP project will train a new generation of P specialists to become 'knowledge brokers' across disciplinary silos, aiming to ensure transformative changes in P sustainability in the EU. The project will train early-stage researchers in the capture and recycling of P from wastewater and freshwater systems as well as in innovative P recovery and freshwater restoration techniques.
