Newfert final workshop: “Nutrient Recovery from bio-based waste for Fertilizer Industry” | Brussels, Belgium

30 October 2018
Location: 
Brussels, Belgium

The NewFert consortium consists of a multidisciplinary team designed to recover NPK nutrients from biobased waste for fertiliser production, bringing together 6 partners from 4 European Union member states (Spain, Germany, France and Austria).

Converting waste into resources is key to a circular economy: Europe produces more than 2.5 billion tonnes of waste per year, around 20 percent of which is classifiable as ‘biowaste’.

NewFert has designed and develop technologies to re-use and valorise biowaste components, making them suitable as secondary raw material in the fertilizer industry, in order to fill the gaps in nutrient recovery technologies and develop specific solutions to realise a new food value chain in fertiliser industry.
