After three successful editions, the European Sustainable Nutrient Initiative – ESNI Conference will be back on 20 September 2023 in Brussels.
Closing nutrient cycles is essential to develop more efficient and sustainable food and feed production systems and protect the environment. However, more action needs to be undertaken to develop a holistic approach to nutrient management. Being one of the major events on nutrient recycling, the ESNI Conference will provide a comprehensive framework of the policies promoting nutrient recycling and recovery (NRR) at the European level as well as a focus on the role of EU-funded R&I projects in contributing to raise awareness on the benefits of nutrient recycling and reuse.
The conference will offer a platform for fruitful discussion and exchange of knowledge where policy-makers, researchers, industry representatives and many other stakeholders will discuss how to raise awareness of the benefits of nutrient recycling and reuse. Do not miss the opportunity to attend the ESNI Conference and contribute to put nutrient recycling high on the EU circular economy agenda!
This year, 12 European-funded projects joined forces with the Biorefine Cluster Europe to give an insight into the most innovative solutions developed to create value-added products from nutrient recycling as well as their major outcomes both from policy and stakeholder perspectives.
- NOVAFERT project will co-organize the workshop "Towards a harmonised approach on sustainability assessment of nutrient recovery pathways: setting LCA methodological priorities". This will be part of the activity developed thanks to the "Working Group on Sustainability for Nutrient Recovery" of the Biorefine Cluster Europe.
- FERTIMANURE is going to present its experience in the "Economic cost-benefit and profitability of recycled nutrients into fertilising products" workshop,
- SEA2LAND will talk about bio-based fertilisers recovery from manure and fishery wastes.
- NUTRIBUDGET will be in a co-creation session towards optimizing nutrient flows and budgets in sustainable agriculture: mitigation measures, KPIs and modelling.
The conference will be complemented by a poster session to showcase the last successful initiatives in the promotion of nutrient recycling in the EU. More details on the programme and the poster session are available here.
